Clifford Goodman Jr., M.D.
Dr. Goodman started the Practice in 1976 in Chandler and has cared for over 30,000 pregnant patients.
Dr. Goodman grew up in a medical family. His great grandfather was one of the first medical doctors in Arizona, starting practice in the 1880's. Dr. Goodman was born in Washington, D.C., where his father studied medicine, but relocated with his family to Chandler, Arizona, shortly thereafter. In 1971, Dr. Goodman graduated from the George Washington University School of Medicine with the degree of "Doctor of Medicine." He then completed specialty training in Obstetrics & Gynecology at the George Washington University Hospitals in the spring of 1974. He spent two years as a medical officer with the United States Navy, based in California, before moving back to the Valley with his own family.
He has been Chief of Staff at Chandler Regional Hospital two different times during his career. He is one of only two OB/GYN physicians that have served in this capacity for the hospital - the other OB/GYN physician being Dr. Scott Partridge.
Currently Dr. Goodman serves as the OB/GYN Department Chair at Mercy Gilbert Medical Center and the OB/GYN Department Vice-Chair at Chandler Regional Medical Center.
Dr. Goodman is currently accepting new pregnant patients. Please call today and be seen today for OB care.

Clinicians with experience managing diabetes in pregnancy were occasionally less than charitable in speculating that poorly-controlled gestational diabetes might have played a role here. We didn’t read the height of the mother, but the newspaper reported: “JaMichael, whose father is 6-foot-7, was likely to be transferred Monday from the neonatal intensive care unit and into the regular nursery. Johnson said she hoped to get her son home later this week — and return his newborn clothes that won’t fit.”
