Our goal is to provide quality, compassionate care and service to every one of our patients.
Well exams are a fundamental aspect of every child’s preventive care. Well exams are performed to assess the growth, development and health of a baby, child, adolescent, or young adult. Premier Pediatrics offers comprehensive care from infancy through young adulthood and works to educate both patients and parents.
At Premier Pediatrics we follow the recommendations for Preventive Pediatric Health Care created by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Each well visit will involve a complete physical exam and a developmental or behavioral evaluation.
Routine screenings at checkups for babies will include development, growth (including weight, length, and head circumference) and can include additional labs.
Screenings for children and adolescents include growth, development, behavioral and mental health, school concerns, weight, height, BMI, blood pressure (for children three and older), vision and hearing.
Additional labs include screens for cholesterol and anemia.

We have kids of our own and we understand the stress associated with having a sick child. We reserve appointments daily for sick patients in order to evaluate and provide appropriate care for your child. There is hardly an injury or illness that we do not see or treat. We have a comprehensive lab and X-ray on site.
Fever in a child is one of the most common symptoms managed by pediatricians and is a frequent cause of parental concern. Fever accounts for one-third of all presenting conditions in children. Fever, however, is not the primary illness, but is a physiological mechanism that has beneficial effects in fighting infection.
At Premier, we are experienced in evaluating and treating behavioral issues, ranging from ADHD to Autism Spectrum Disorders to Depression and Anxiety. If you would like your child to be evaluated for ADD or ADHD, please complete the forms below.
Adolescence is an important, and often tumultuous time, in both a child’s and parent’s life. We encourage routine adolescent care to address a variety of sensitive issues such as mood and behavior issues, substance use, safety, school performance, sports and supplements, menstrual problems, and contraceptive counseling, to name a few. A strong and honest relationship with a provider can be very beneficial for the adolescent patient and for the mental well-being of the parent.
We encourage you to visit us for physical exams for school and sports-related activities. The two main parts of a sports physical are a thorough medical history and a physical exam. These two components afford both patient and parent an opportunity to discuss safety, injuries and sport-specific concerns, as well as evaluate the body for overall physical health and wellness.
