Welcome to the

Adolescent Medicine Program

We provide patients ages 11 to 24 with comprehensive medical care that prepares them to thrive as adults.

The healthcare needs of children change as they age, and by the time they reach puberty, their medical concerns can become more complex. At the Adolescent Medicine Program, our specialists understand how to guide and support our patients through adolescence, empowering them to take ownership of their physical, emotional, and overall wellbeing.

Our pediatricians, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, are board certified in adolescent medicine. We care for children starting at age 11 and can continue being their doctor until they turn 25, when we help them transition to an adult primary care doctor.

Services we provide include the following:

  • adolescent gynecologic care, including evaluation of genital lesions, vaginal discharge, and ovarian cysts
  • medical management of behavior concerns, including uncomplicated depression
  • contraception counseling and management, including intrauterine devices, oral contraceptive pills, and contraceptive implants
  • medical management of eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia
  • gender-affirming medical care, including menstrual suppression, puberty blockers, and masculinizing and feminizing hormones
  • management of menstrual disorders that can be characterized by painful periods, premenstrual disorder, or absent, heavy, or irregular menses
  • management of adolescent issues related to complex chronic medical conditions such as diabetes and irritable bowel syndrome
  • treatment for menstrual problems due to chronic diseases such as bleeding disorders
  • evaluation and treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome
