MEET US

We are proud to be the caretakes of our earth's greatest resources, our children.

Desert Pediatrics was founded by Dr. Richard F. Weiner in 1994.  We are currently a seven provider group with two locations. 

Our goal as medical providers is to help you feel comfortable using your "parental instincts", along with our expertise and guidance, during times of health and sickness. We hope to develop an alliance with you, a special relationship of trust and confidence, as you embark on this challenging and rewarding journey.
