I am a teenager and I’d like to be seen on my own. Is that possible?

Yes! Community Paediatricians regularly see teenagers independently from their parents. However, it’s usually a good idea for parents to come too so they can come in at the end of the appointment. They’re usually concerned/ worried about you and doing their best to help.
