Adolescent Clinic


The World Health Organization has recently published a regretful report stating that adolescents’ health is too often neglected by medical authorities and bodies in the world. Indeed, a recent study shows 25% of adolescents living in Beirut suffer from an emotional, behavioral or learning disorder while only 6% of those needing treatment receive it.

At Bellevue Medical Center, we have created an adolescent clinic, served by a multidisciplinary team of specialized physicians and staff, to serve the adolescent population. The clinic addresses teenagers aged between 11 and 21 years old, having simple or complex health issues, or simply concerns regarding their mental or physical health. It is served by a team of doctors and experts specialized in adolescent health, among which pediatricians, family doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, gynecologists, nutritionists, and other nurses and healthcare staff.

The problems we address range from general health, to psychosocial problems, passing by eating disorders, addictions, growth and reproductive issues, skin conditions, sleep problems, anxiety, and others.

Adolescents are more comfortable in a waiting room with others their age and more open to doctors who understand their health challenges. At the BMC clinic, we try to make patients feel welcome and understood, and we pay a lot of attention to respect, privacy and confidentiality.

In addition, there are a number of benefits to the adolescent clinic:
• Reduced consultation fees
• Discounts on outpatient tests
• Multidisciplinary case management
• Facilitation of appointments and tests with 1 coordinator
• Customized patient ID card
• Relaxed, private & customized setting
• Free educational material on various topics

If you feel that you, your son/daughter, or someone you know needs the adolescent clinic, please contact us on: 01-682666, ext. 7470; or adolescentclinic@bmc.com.lb.
