Adolescent Health Q & A

Why does my adolescent need specialized healthcare?

In just 18 years, your child goes from a newborn baby to an adult, almost seemingly overnight. The adolescent years are particularly transformative as your child’s hormones begin to play a larger role, their emotions become more complex, and their bodies take on their more “adult” form.

To ensure that your child meets critical physical and mental milestones during this period of development, it’s important that you seek expert oversight of their health at Rochester Primary Care.

What services are provided under adolescent health?

The doctors at Rochester Primary Care offer a host of services that are tailored to adolescent patients, including:

  • Annual wellness visits
  • Immunizations
  • Depression screening
  • Sick visits

At the top of this list are the annual wellness visits that the team at Rochester Primary Care provides. During these visits, Dr. Surendran monitors your child’s development, recording their vital statistics as they go, including height, weight, heart rate, and blood pressure. With this baseline information recorded, they perform a complete physical exam, paying close attention to any areas where your child may be experiencing problems, including their mental health.

As part of this visit, they run routine labs on your child’s blood and urine to ensure that their organ function and cardiovascular health are within normal ranges.

While most of your child’s immunizations are largely completed during their younger years, there are a few vaccines that the doctors administer during adolescence, including the HPV vaccine and the annual flu shot.

For those inevitable cold and flu outbreaks, as well as minor injuries, the team at Rochester Primary Care has you covered.

Are school and sports physicals available?

Yes. The doctors at Rochester Primary Care offer specialized exams, including school and sports physicals. Schools, colleges, and sports teams are becoming increasingly vigilant about monitoring the health of children to ensure both their safety, as well as the safety of those around them.

The doctors at Rochester Primary Care understand the ins and outs of the physical exam requirements and will help you obtain what you need, including filling out the necessary paperwork.
