At Premier Pediatrics, we look forward to getting to know you and your child and working together for the health and well-being of your family.
Premier Pediatrics offers experienced pediatricians and health professionals dedicated to providing the best possible care for your child from birth through young adulthood. Our staff consists of two board-certified pediatricians and one certified pediatric nurse practitioner.
Knowing that the foundation of any good relationship begins with communication, we value the partnership between practitioner, patient and parent, and encourage any questions you may have about your child’s health and development.
As part of CHKD Medical Group, we provide our families the benefit of direct access to all of CHKD’s specialists and services, providing patients with the high quality comprehensive care they need throughout their growing years.
We recognize and respect the value of your time, so all patients are seen by appointment. To help us make sure you see the provider of your choice, try to schedule routine appointments at least four weeks in advance. If you need to change an appointment, please let us know right away, so others won’t be inconvenienced. Missed appointments may be subject to a service charge unless cancelled 24 hours in advance.
Routine checkups are an important part of keeping your child healthy. By maintaining a regular checkup schedule, you can help prevent illness, detect hidden problems and monitor your child’s growth and development. We would like to see your child every year for a checkup. Please know, however, many insurance companies do not cover this type of care after age five, so please check with your family’s insurer.
When Your Child is Sick
