Adolescent Medicine

Exceptional Care for Baton Rouge Teens and Young Adults

Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Health Adolescent Medicine Clinic specializes in helping adolescents and young adults, ages 12 to 21, navigate their complex physical, behavioral and emotional healthcare needs. Our clinic assists primary care and specialty providers in ensuring their patients have the best comprehensive care available.

Teenagers experience a storm of problems and conditions that are difficult to navigate alone. An adolescent medicine specialist has special training to help teens cope with conditions and pressures. They can even help teens transition to adulthood and manage their own healthcare. We provide consultation on a variety of development, psychosocial, and health issues facing adolescents and young adults such as:

  • Adolescent male health
  • Mild to moderate acne
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Counseling, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STI)
  • STI partner treatment
  • Substance abuse
  • The pressure to take drugs, drink or use tobacco
  • Pubescent development
  • Reproductive health
  • Menstrual problems including irregular periods
  • Questions about sexual identity
  • Comprehensive risk assessments

Parents have lots of questions (and sometimes concerns) about the teen years, and how to manage not only a teen's development, but also the parent's changing role.
