Special cases require specialty care. The new Children’s Mercy Adolescent Medicine Specialty Clinic is a clinic designed specifically to treat the extensive and complex needs of teenagers. This team of specialists utilizes a whole care approach, evaluating physical, social, environmental and psychological needs of each teen, recognizing the unique difficulties faced during this stage of life development, including mental health, gynecological and reproductive health, POTS, chronic fatigue, medication adherence and transition to adult care.
Michaela Voss, MD is here today to explain how they are working to expand their reach in the community and develop further clinics based on need, with the aim of supporting the primary care provider through collaboration and consulting.
