The office of Dr. Tamar Gottfried is conveniently located in the 1520 building on the campus of Banner Desert Medical Centerin Mesa Arizona. This building, distinguished by its relaxing covered courtyard and underground parking, is minutes away from this world class hospital and from the Banner Desert Surgery Center.
Ours is a boutique Obstetric and Gynecology practice where you see either Dr. Gottfried or Certified Nurse Midwife Sharon. Our practice is focused on women’s health and is staffed by women who are mothers, daughters, grandmothers, wives and partners. Dr. Gottfried does the great majority of her deliveries herself and is a member of the only all-female call coverage group at Banner Desert, comprised of 2 doctors and 3 midwives.
In our office, we offer in house laboratory service and in house ultrasound read by one of the world’s foremost experts in women’ s health radiology. We also provide confirmation of pregnancy ultrasound, electronic medical records, video colposcopy and in office surgical procedures with anesthesia services performed by a board certified anesthesiologist. . Endometrial Ablation procedures to treat heavy monthly bleeding are also done in the office with the Novasure device. In addition, we offer IUD placement, Nexplanon insertions, LEEP and cryotherapy procedures for abnormal Pap smears, pessary fittings for pelvic prolapse, basic infertility diagnosis and treatment, wart and skin tag removals, as well as a variety of other gynecology procedures.
Dr. Gottfried loves taking care of pregnant patients. As a general obstetrician, she cares for women with low risk pregnancies as well as for women with health problems during pregnancy such as diabetes, high blood pressure, prior cesareans, hyperemesis (excessive vomiting), depression, and other conditions, in consultation with a high risk pregnancy specialist.
Dr. Gottfried practices exclusively at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa and at the Banner Surgicenter on campus. She loves delivering babies at Banner Desert due to the maternity unit’s ability to take care of both high and low risk pregnancies. At Banner Desert, we can do an unmedicated labor with the option of using wireless monitors, nitrous oxide (gas) and labor tubs for pain control. Alternatively, high risk pregnancy specialists and ultrasound are immediately available, as is a level 3 neonatal intensive care unit, neonatologists, and a fully staffed Cardon’s Children’s Hospital for the times when more help is needed to safely take care of mom and baby.
We accept a variety of both private insurances and AHCCCS plans and even have self-pay plans available. Dr. Gottfried and most of her staff are fluent in Spanish and are happy to communicate with patients in either English or Spanish. We strive to treat each patient in the practice as an individual and do whatever we can to make the health care experience a positive one. We understand the complexities of being a woman. We are about you and we understand you and your health care needs at all stages of life.
