Adolescent Medicine Program for a Healthier Life

Excess body weight can adversely affect a child’s health and well-being. We are devoted to helping children develop healthy eating habits and incorporate physical activity as part of their daily lives. We offer treatment to the pediatric population between the ages of 12 through 17. We welcome and encourage that Mom, Dad, and siblings come to the visits because helping your child succeed in becoming healthier will require the efforts of the entire family.

Our team consists of an obesity medicine specialist, a dietitian, and a behavioral health specialist, who will create an individualize plan to help your child achieve and maintain nutritional, physical, and behavioral goals.
