During our teen years, there are many different changes to our bodies and minds. It can be a confusing time for everyone. Your family doctor is your non-judgmental source to answer all your questions.

With information at your fingertips, it can be easy to stumble upon incorrect or even scary health information. At McMaster Family Practice, we want to ensure the resources you use online are accurate and helpful.  On this website, you will find trustworthy resources and various helplines which you might find useful.  These sources have been tailored to the Hamilton Area to better suit your needs.

Should you need any clarification or further information, come in to see your family doctor. Our door is wide open!  Remember that the information you provide to your family doctor is confidential, unless you pose an imminent risk to your own life or to the life of others.
