Penn Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine Now in Two Convenient Locations

Penn Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine now sees patients in two convenient locations  – Penn Medicine Radnor, a facility of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and Penn Medicine Valley Forge.

Penn Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine focuses on the needs of young men and women between the ages of 12 and 30. The practice offers primary care with a full understanding of the physical and psychological changes associated with the transition from adolescence to adulthood.

Penn Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine also provides specialty care for patients including:

  • Eating disorders
  • Managing and coordinating care for chronic illness, stress, depression and anxiety 
  • Drug and alcohol use
  • Smoking cessation
  • Managing conflicts with parents, siblings, teachers and peers
  • Reproductive care
In addition to a second location, Penn Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine welcomes Deepti Thapar, MD. Dr. Thapar earned her medical degree at Bangalore University, India, and trained in family medicine at Cedar Rapids Medical Education Foundation in  Iowa.  She is board certified in family medicine and has a special interest in preventive care, women’s health and adolescent medicine.

Dr. Thapar is most interested in developing long-term, collaborative relationships with her patients and is passionate about making a meaningful impact on the young adult population. She sees patients at both the Radnor and Valley Forge locations.
