Sometime during their teen or adolescent years, girls will have their first pediatric gynecology exam. The adolescent health care doctors at Cohen Children’s Medical Center treat your daughter with the sensitivity and kindness necessary for such a personal exam. Each and every step of the exam is discussed and explored to make your daughter as comfortable as possible before any part of the examination is executed. We encourage both parents and kids to ask questions about the pediatric gynecology exam.
Adolescent Deaf Health Services:
Primary care and specialized services are available to help teens and adolescents with hearing loss or impairment. Our pediatric health care team is able to communicate effectively with children who have special communication needs and will provide all the appropriate pediatric health care treatments that are necessary.
