Should my teenager have a physical each year?

Yes, we recommend that adolescents have a physical once a year. Routine exams give your teenager an opportunity to receive reliable answers to questions he/she may feel uncomfortable asking you or another adult. This exam also allows the provider to discuss with your teenager the normal occurrences of puberty and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
