Kids and Teens

Get ready for 14 years of big changes and big challenges

Throughout all the ups and downs, we’re here to help

At Westchester Health Pediatrics, we care about what your child is going through as well as about his/her health, and between the ages of 5 and 19, he/she will go through a lot.

These middle and teen years are filled with exciting changes but also realistic worries about fitting in, body image, grades, relationships and a host of other issues. That’s where we can help. We’re here with advice and guidance, to discuss your concerns, to listen to the pressures facing young people today and to help with solutions.

We’re with you and your child, every step of the way

From bullying to eating disorders to sexual health, we have vital information to share with you that relates to the things you and your child are experiencing, at home, at school and in their relationships. Count on us to provide the latest, evidence-based medicine, technology and research, as well as experienced, time-tested guidance for any aspect of your child’s healthcare. You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.
