    Adolescence is challenging and we can help. At Kentucky Children’s Hospital, we have a clinic that specializes in adolescent medicine, treating young people ages 10 - 21. Our team of physicians, nurses, social workers, nutritionists and psychologists provides comprehensive care for eating disorders, behavioral issues, obesity, substance abuse-related problems, sexual abuse/rape evaluation and treatment, ADHD, and more. This is a Primary Care Practice, and we provide routine and sports physicals, general and acute medical care as well.
