dc.description.abstract This study was undertaken to determine where adolescents obtain their health care. A survey form was sent to four high schools in this state which reported urban, suburban, and rural populations. This questionnaire contained 18 items designed to determine demographic statistics about the study population as well as to identify their source of health care. Results from the 569 respondents were tabulated and analyzed. Most of this 15-16 year old adolescent group considered their doctor to be a family doctor. It was to a family doctor that most adolescents turned to for medical care. Other physicians and health care providers delivered some of the care but usually the family physician was the most frequent care giver. Adolescents are felt to be an underserved group of patients and the results of this study could be used to channel more efforts toward delivery of their health care. Conclusions drawn here reveal that family physicians do provide most of an adolescent's care.Ball State UniversityMuncie, IN 47306 en_US
