Young Adults (YAP@CAP )

We are excited to introduce our new Young Adult Program (YAP @ CAP). Young adults aged 18 – 26 are encouraged to schedule a yearly physical.  Though you may think your child might feel uncomfortable going to his/her “baby doctor, it has been our experience that the transition to the young adult visits which are different from their adolescent visits, is much easier in a familiar and friendly environment. If your young adult feels comfortable it creates a greater chance of him/her wanting to continue preventative health care throughout their young adult years.  Our YAP @ CAP program allows your young adult to continue in our trusted care while moving towards more independence.

During their physicals, we will work with young adults to help them take more responsibility for their medical care.  This is especially important for young adults with chronic medical conditions and/or those living away from home. We will also address health care concerns that may be more common in young adults than children, including high blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease, drug abuse, and sexual health. And when the time comes, we will personally refer your son or daughter to an internist to continue their care.

The Young Adult years are a wonderful time of growing independence and self- discovery.  They can also be a time of questioning and exploring.  We’ve listed a few sites below to help you help them navigate through these formidable years.
