A Note to Our Parents and Adolescent Patients
As our young patients grow older, they take more responsibility for themselves and for their own health care. We want them and their parents to know that we view them as our patients and that our primary concern and responsibility is for them and for their needs. We encourage our adolescent and young adult patients to speak with us directly and to feel free to discuss with us any concerns that they may have about their health and their bodies.
On some occasions, there will be issues that our patients discuss with us that are CONFIDENTIAL. We encourage discussion of these issues. It is our policy to keep any discussed information confidential that our patients request us to, with the exception of issues that might be life-threatening.
