Adolescent Health

Navigating the teen years can be a challenge for both teens and parents.

At Pediatrics West, we want to make this transition as easy and as healthy as possible. 

We are excited to expand our current services to provide age-appropriate evaluation and treatment of sexual and reproductive health needs that include:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of painful or irregular menses

  • Contraception services (oral contraceptives, Depo Provera and Nexplanon)

  • Emergency Contraception                  

  • Well woman care

  • Resources and referrals to other specialists as needed
  • Confidential consults*

Adolescent Care in Littleton and Wheat Ridge

Please ask your provider about accessing these services! We offer appointments at both our Wheat Ridge and Littleton location.  We also have clinic time at our Wheat Ridge office each month. Call 303-973-9300 for an appointment.

*PRIVACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY

While we encourage open communication between all of our adolescents and their parents as a way to foster healthy development and relationships, as health care professionals we must also make sure we are following state and federal law. According to state and federal regulations, adolescent minors (under age 18) have a right to confidentiality in the following cases:

  • Request for birth control or family planning services

  • Request for testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections

  • Request for testing and treatment for drug addiction

  • Request for testing and treatment for certain mental health issues

  • If they are legally married

  • If they are financially independent and living apart from parents
