Specialty Care for Preteens and Teens

Preteens and teens have special healthcare needs. That’s why we have a team of board-certified adolescent medicine specialists.

Our team of doctors and nurses can help you and your child manage adolescent health issues – from vaccines and checkups to more complex matters of sexual health and eating disorders.

Our pediatric primary care and family medicine practices provide preventive and general care for adolescents.

When your adolescent has a condition that requires specialty care, ask your primary care provider for a referral to Baystate Adolescent Medicine. Our adolescent medicine specialists treat a variety of conditions with sensitivity and compassion, including those related to:

  • Eating disorders (which can have serious medical and emotional consequences and require professional help)
  • Puberty
  • Gynecology, including periods and vaginal infections
  • Sexual health, including contraception, and sexually transmitted infections

Let us guide your young adults and adolescents – ages 10 to 22 – through the transition from pediatric to adult healthcare.

Eating Disorders Program for Adolescents 

Talk to your child/teen's doctor if you are worried that your child/teen has an eating disorder, such as anorexia, bulimia or ARFID (Avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder). Ask about a referral to Baystate Children’s Hospital’s Adolescent Eating Disorders Program, which provides expert diagnosis, outpatient treatment, and family-centered support.
