For Teens

Unique Health Care Needs

Figuring Kids OutTeenagers have unique concerns and health care needs. Yet, most pediatric providers feel uncomfortable with teens and discourage their participation in their practices. We practice exceptional adolescent medicine and have designed separate exam rooms just for teens and young adults. We have pioneered the care of children from cradle through college, extending the traditional boundaries of pediatric care to age 23 years.

Senders Pediatrics is committed to providing you with the most comprehensive and cutting edge information. When an issue arises or if you are just looking for a bit more information, the internet can be a bit overwhelming and unsettling. For this reason, we have created a library of various educational topics, written uniquely by our providers themselves, to give you our take. If you do not find what you are looking for, please call our office and we would be happy to discuss it with you.
