In brief: Many things
Typical visits are about general health and wellness.
Your provider may as about home life, school and work, relationships and sexuality, tobacco/alcohol/substance experimentation and use, mood and depression among many topics. The exam should be from head to to including a breast exam for females and genital exam for males. The exam should offer the teen a private and confidential interview.
