Teen's Questions - Doctor's Answers

Teens often have questions about their health but don’t always feel comfortable asking adults for information.  

To make things easier, we compiled some common questions and then sat down for a “video visit” with Dr. Kurt Farchmin and Dr. Catherine Hansen.

In this video, they answer:

If I’m under 18, can I be treated without my parent’s knowledge? 

How do I know if I'm pregnant? 

Who can see the information in my health records?

How can I get “Plan B?” 

Can the nurse who rooms me see my health information? 

If I tell you that I smoke pot or drink alcohol, will you tell my parents or call law enforcement?

When I pee in a cup, what are you testing it for?
