Wonder what we talk about at medical visits?
As primary care physicians, we are always available to talk with our patients about anything on their minds, ranging from emotional difficulties, stress at school or work, relationship issues with family, friends or significant others, concerns about substance use or sexuality, or any other troubling issue. In many cases, the counseling we provide may brief and focused. Some adolescents or young adults may experience developmental or emotional difficulties that require more in-depth management. As adolescent and young adult physicians, we are experts at evaluating psychosocial concerns, and when indicated, we collaborate with other experienced providers, such as therapists and psychiatrists, to create a team approach to managing complex mental health issues. We at AYAM are here to talk if and when you need us!
