A doctor for teens shouldn’t just address their physical health through school and sports physicals, routine preventative care, and sick visits, but treat their emotional and mental health as well. The hormonal changes and rapid growth your teen is facing right now can be difficult for even the most confident adolescent to deal with.
Your teen needs a strong support system now more than ever—someone who listens to their concerns with an open mind free from judgment and treats them with the respect, kindness, and dignity every kid deserves. When teens know they have an advocate on their side, they’re more likely to ask for help and use the information provided to take greater control of their health as they head into adulthood.
Dr. Diaz-Ochu specializes in treating teen patients with special healthcare conditions, including autism, ADHD, anxiety, and depression. In addition to screening for these conditions, she can connect your family to specialists and resources as well as manage a comprehensive care plan to help them live their best life.
