Developing a strong relationship with their gynecologist can be one of the most important connections a teen can make. The availability of accurate health information and support can help young women make healthy decisions. Communication is critical for maintaining health and at Brookside Gynecology we take that seriously. While Brookside always has a physician on call for emergencies, there is also a secure and confidential portal messaging feature that many young women find helpful. The Brookside physicians recommend that any young woman who has gynecologic symptoms, is sexually active or has concerns that a gynecologist could help with, come in for an appointment and establish this important relationship.
