Desert Valley Pediatrics is devoted to helping you through your child’s first days, weeks, and months of life. The team monitors your child’s growth and development with advanced services and teaches you to care for your baby at home.


In the typical newborn visit, the provider will discuss the prenatal and perinatal history.  Parents will be encouraged to express any concerns.  The baby will receive a comprehensive exam.  It is our desire to forge a partnership with families to ensure the baby has a great beginning and bright future.
