Abstract

The assessment and care of female adolescents by primary care physicians can be facilitated with increased knowledge about this stage of development, the health care risks faced by these patients, and the resources available to aid in their care. With a focus on preventive health maintenance, this concise review addresses these areas as well as how to build relationships with female adolescent patients, conduct age-appropriate interviews and tests, and maintain patient confidentiality.
