Sexual Health Experts and Radiant Research Team for Clinical Trial

Two East Valley doctors are working with Radiant Research to conduct a stage III clinical trial that will assess an investigational treatment for Female Orgasmic Disorder (FOD). Women experiencing FOD typically have trouble achieving a satisfying completion during sexual intimacy despite adequate arousal. Recent studies show that as many as one in four women are affected by this condition; however, there are currently no FDA-approved treatments for FOD.

Dr. Debra Wickman, Co-Founder of SHE, Sexual Health Experts in Gilbert, along with Dr. Randall Severance, Principal Investigator for Radiant Research, will be testing an intranasal testosterone gel that aims to treat FOD on an as-needed basis. SHE, part of the MomDoc family of practices, is the only clinic dedicated to sexual health in Arizona. Radiant Research is a comprehensive research company supporting the biopharmaceutical, medical device and consumer products industries. They have conducted more than 8,900 clinical and consumer trials.

For this clinical trial, researchers are seeking women between the ages of ages 18 – 65, who are generally healthy, in a sexually active relationship and have not experienced an orgasm in the past six months. The trial will be conducted at SHE, which is located at 1760 East Pecos Road (Suite 516), Gilbert, Ariz. Participants may be eligible for compensation. For more information, call 866-429-3707.

The SHE clinic is unique in its focus on the mind-body connection. A gynecologist and clinical psychologist team to diagnose and treat sexual health.

MomDoc is Joined by Westridge OB/GYN

MomDoc, Arizona’s women’s healthcare leader, announced that Westridge OB/GYN will be joining MomDoc May 1, 2013 in an effort to enhance the growing needs of healthcare in the West Valley.

“We are very pleased that Westridge, OB/GYN is joining MomDoc . All at MomDoc welcome all with Westridge, OB/GYN. Uniting will create expanded care for women in the Estrella area and we are glad to be part of that growth,” said Nick Goodman, MomDoc CEO.

Both MomDoc and Westridge have strong reputations of providing high quality care to patients. “Both Dr. Gallai and Dr. Boyce are highly regarded by their patients. We are happy to have both of these fine physicians join MomDoc” added Goodman.

Dr. Lorenzo Boyce, FACOG, has been on the West side since 1993 and Dr. Robert Gallai, FACOG since 1994. Dr. Boyce moved to Phoenix from the Chicago area and Dr. Gallai from Canada.

Some MomDoc providers will move to the Westridge office. Westridge, OB/GYN will continue to practice and in shared space MomDoc Women for Women will provide care.

Patients will see little change in care initially, followed by gradual improvements.  Services at Westridge will remain the same other than additional staff to handle patient needs. MomDoc will move its existing Estrella office to the Westridge building. The site will continue to provide multi-lingual care. Westridge OB/GYN is located at 8410 West Thomas, Rd. in Phoenix.

MomDoc is recognized in Arizona for its six practices with fifteen offices. Under the MomDoc umbrella are Drs. Goodman and Partridge, OB/GYN in the valley for over thirty years; MomDoc Women for Women, a practice with all female providers; Healthy Pregnancy Perinatology, specializing in high risk pregnancy; Mi Doctora, a fully Spanish speaking women’s healthcare practice; MomDoc Midwives, where midwives provide excellent hospital based deliveries; and SHE, Sexual Health Experts, unique to Arizona, featuring an emphasis on women’s sexual health.

MomDoc named Patient Centered Specialty Practice

MomDoc, known Valley wide for exemplary care in women’s health, was named one of only sixty early adopters of the prestigious Patient Centered Specialty Practices, a recognition previously available only to  primary care practices. MomDoc is the only practice honored in Arizona.

Patient Centered Specialty Practice is an extension of the Patient Centered Medical Home designation which emphasizes strong connections between primary and specialty practices engaged in a patient centered model. The designation was given only to those specialty practices that have successfully coordinated care with their primary care colleagues and each other and that meet preset goals including timely access to care and continuous quality improvements. The program also addresses reducing duplication of tests, measuring performance and improving patient communication.

MomDoc is recognized in Arizona for its five overarching practices with fifteen offices. Under the MomDoc umbrella are Drs. Goodman and Partridge, OB/GYN a staple in the valley for over thirty years; MomDoc women for Women, a practice encompassing all female doctors; Mi Doctora, a fully Spanish speaking women’s practice; MomDoc Midwives and SHE, Sexual Health Experts, another practice unique to the state featuring an emphasis on women’s sexual health.

MomDoc is in good company with its new distinction, sharing the spotlight with Johns Hopkins Community Physicians, a part of the group which includes both the hospital and the School of Medicine.

“It is indeed am honor to be one of the early adopters and to receive this designation,” says Nick Goodman, CEO of MomDoc. “It is very special to be the only practice in Arizona to be recognized. It makes us even more proud of the work we do at MomDoc and it lets us know that the direction we take with our practices is the right one.”

Patient centered care, originally recognized in the Patient Centered Medical Home designation, is an innovative program for improving care in clear, specified criteria which include coordinating care around patients, working in teams and coordinating and tracking care over time. It is the cornerstone of MomDoc’s philosophy and practices. From early morning, evening and Saturday appointments to emotional health and whole patient care, MomDoc prides itself on service and a patient centered approach.

MomDoc offices and specialty practices are located throughout the Valley and same day appointments are available.
