HOUSTON RediClinic is launching in time for summer camp and upcoming school sports a new health package designed specifically for teenagers.
The new Teen Health Package includes a physical exam, an acne consultation and an immunization review for $59.
"We all know that adolescence is a time of great change," stated Susan Cooley King, VP clinical services. "With this in mind, RediClinic created a special health package that addresses the specific health needs of a teen."
Physical exams are always in season. They are required by summer camps and for participation in school sports. During a RedlClinic physical, a clinician evaluates the teen's medical history. The exam is then performed, checking their physical health including, but not limited to, chest and heart, lymph nodes, blood pressure and abdomen.
Patients of the Teen Health Package also will receive an evaluation of their acne issues and the clinician will make recommendations for the most appropriate treatment ranging from over-the-counter medications to prescriptions.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 85% of American teenagers are effected by acne.
Patients also will receive an immunization review whereby the clinician will review the teen's immunization history, identify which vaccines the patient needs for school admission and administer the vaccines, for an additional charge if necessary.
