Our team includes pediatricians with experience in primary care, hormone problems, high blood pressure and sleep disturbance, as well as social workers and dietitians.
Specialist Follow-up: Our providers have special expertise in caring for children and adolescents with extra weight and the health problems that may result including diabetes, problems with puberty, high cholesterol and liver disease.
Nutrition Follow-up: We help families learn which foods are best to avoid and which are best to enjoy. Families set realistic goals for healthy food choices, portion size and healthy eating habits.
Behavioral Guidance: Our philosophy is that emotions and behaviors have a lot to do with what we eat. Our social workers help families improve behaviors, set limits, give positive encouragement and improve self-esteem.
Exercise Prescriptions: One-on-one visits with our community partners in physical therapy or at the YMCA are encouraged. We work with many YMCA's in Southern and Central Maine.
