Adolescent Medicine Specialist

Adolescent medicine specialists are doctors (sometimes internists or pediatricians) who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions and diseases common to teenagers.

Adolescent medicine specialists can be board-certified through the Board of Internal Medicine or the Board of Pediatrics, both of which are recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
