Desert West Joins the AOA Family

Arizona OBGYN Affiliates (AOA) proudly announces the addition of Desert West OBGYN, adding 13 board certified physicians, three nurse practitioners, and four additional branch locations to the growing organization. Desert West OBGYN has been providing high quality and compassionate care to women in the Northwest Valley since 1973.

“Desert West OBGYN is pleased to join AOA,” said Robert Phillips, M.D., President of the Desert West Branch. “AOA is a group of some of the best, high quality patient care OBGYN practices in the Valley. We look forward to this association as a way to collaborate with our colleagues more closely on best practices for patient care. “

With branch locations in Glendale, Peoria, Estrella and Anthem, Desert West OBGYN will continue to specialize in a variety of women’s health issues, including the most up-to-date assessments and treatments, including uro-gynecology along with preventive, well-woman and obstetrical care. The branch utilizes minimally invasive surgical techniques including laparoscopic surgery and the precise, state-of-the-art da Vinci robot.

The services provided by Desert West positively match the high level skill set of the physicians and medical professionals at all of the existing AOA branches.

“AOA is excited about the addition of Desert West, which we believe is a great group of like-minded physicians and providers who share the vision of AOA,” said Michael Urig, M.D., President of AOA. “These physicians want to provide the highest level of care in the most cost effective way, while giving their patients a positive experience with their healthcare needs.”

AOA is the largest physician-owned OBGYN practice in the state of Arizona built from a web of integrated practices of OBGYN physicians across the valley. AOA is dedicated to providing exceptional women’s care. Blending advanced health care with compassion and trust, AOA is a family of OBGYN physicians who are elevating women’s care to a new level. With a staff of more than 60 physicians and mid-level practitioners and 14 branch offices throughout Arizona, women have better access to quality care and insurance providers have peace of mind in knowing that the physicians within AOA meet the highest level of clinical, technical and ethical standards in healthcare.
