Experts in Teen Health

From sexual health concerns to gender identity questions, our team of adolescent medicine specialists are experts in knowing how to talk to teens.

In addition to system-wide adolescent medicine, we also provide pediatric gynecology in the Delaware region. This team is specially trained in caring for girls with gynecological concerns, from birth through adolescence. We offer a range of birth control options and same-day procedures. 

If your child needs to see other Nemours specialists (like a psychologist or nutritionist for an eating disorder), we can help arrange appointments. We work closely with the doctors and other health care providers to make sure your child gets the personalized care they need.

Our commitment to children’s health extends well into the teen years. It’s often when we’re needed most.
