The Child Wellness Clinic sees children ages 2 to 11 years and the Adolescent Wellness Clinic cares for youth ages 12 to 21 years.

In our consultation, we focus on individual as well as family behavior and lifestyle. Our focus is not on diet only, but on helping your family make healthy choices. Our goal is to improve your child’s long-term health and quality of life. The success of the process requires a desire and readiness to change – on the part of both you and your child.

We look at the medical, nutritional, social, physical and emotional aspects of weight gain in your child or teen. We work closely with your child’s or teen’s primary care provider.

Conditions We Treat

Our Wellness Clinics evaluate children and teens who:

  • have concerns about being overweight
  • are overweight (have a body mass index [BMI] between the 85th and 95th percentiles and have other associated conditions)
  • are obese (have a BMI greater than the 95th percentile)

Services We Provide

We offer individualized visits and group classes on nutrition, family meals, emotional well-being and family physical activity.

  • Our clinic visits offer support and education for making changes toward a healthy lifestyle. You and your child have an initial visit with a clinician and a clinical dietitian, who will help you determine which program is the best fit for you at this time. Your child may be referred to a behavior change specialist and an activity specialist if needed. We may also recommend that you participate in our parent group classes.

  • The first step is for your teen to see a doctor who will provide medical guidance. If ready, your teen will then be referred to the dietitian for an evaluation. You and your teen will see the dietitian for at least four to six monthly visits. These visits cover nutrition education and include counseling around eating patterns. Your teen may be referred to a behavior change specialist and an activity specialist if needed.

  • This program is offered to teens 15 to 17 years old with a BMI greater than the 95th percentile. An initial visit with an Adolescent Medicine clinician will assess the teen’s interest in our program. If the teen is interested, the clinician refers the teen to a dietitian, a social worker and fitness specialist.
