    MomDoc is a patient-centered practice that provides gynecological and obstetric care for women all over the Valley. Dr. Clifford J. Goodman started the practice in 1976 in Chandler, AZ. He was joined by Dr. Scott Partridge in 1983. Since then, MomDoc has grown to consist of 19 medical offices with over 60 providers. We offer 3D and 4D Live Motion Ultrasound and provide one-of-a-kind contemporary care for women. MomDoc offers same-day, morning, lunch, evening and even Saturday appointments to accommodate busy patients' schedules. We offer personal undivided attention for our patients, ensuring that they receive dedication and commitment from their provider. Our One-Hospital Philosophy means that providers are never scheduled to be on call at two hospitals at once. We are noticeably different from other practices. To help our patients fell more comfortable, we have designed our offices to feel more like a home instead of a doctor's office. Our MomDoc Concierges (trained medical assistants) carefully guide each patient through the visit from start to finish. We have an excellent reputation among patients as well as within the medical community for our excellent care and treatment. Many of our providers serve as department chairs at local hospitals, and two of our physicians have been elected Chief of Staff at Chandler Regional Medical Center.
