Health Comes First
Premier Care for Children
Premier Pediatrics always welcomes and accepts new patients. Whether you are a new or expectant parent, are new to the area or moving over from another practice, at Premier Pediatrics we look forward to welcoming you to our family. Either schedule an appointment online, or call us today to secure your child(ren)’s first appointment.
After your appointment has been confirmed you will receive your new patient paperwork via patient portal. For a smoother check-in, fill out your paperwork prior to your appointment.
At Premier Pediatrics we feel it’s a privilege to participate in your child’s development. We hope for the opportunity to provide your child(ren) with the highest quality care and services available to ensure they will grow into physically and mentally healthy adults.
We appreciate the trust Southern Utah parents have placed in our practice since 2001.

Why does my child need an annual check-up when they're well?
Dr. Dowse Says: “Parents often ask me why their children should have a well visit. I answer them by sharing with them the time when I diagnosed the high-school athlete with a potential life-threatening arrhythmia; or the 2 yr old who was found to have a malignant tumor; or the 5 yr old who was found to be in early stage diabetes. They all seemed perfectly healthy. You can’t be too careful. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of the annual check-up. It is our best tool for early detection and continued good health.”
Staying on top of your child’s well exam can ensure complete healthcare at their sick appointments. Our Providers stress the importance of a full medical history. Each child is unique and that is why it can be difficult to properly diagnosis a child when they are sick, without a baseline of when they are well.
Annual well exams are FREE for insured patients
An annual well exam is the best insurance you can provide for your child’s health
We stay on top of it for you! Premier will schedule your child’s next appointment a year in advance and remind you as their appointment approaches. This way you can schedule the day and time that works with your schedule. For convenience, we offer reminders through text, email, or personal phone calls. We are flexible to patients needs and can easily reschedule appointments at any time.
