I went for what most people consider to be a rough appointment and it turned out to be the absolute best experience Ive ever had. This place is what amazing patient care looks like! I was first greeted with Laura, the MA, with notShow morehing but kindness and smiles. Then I met Dr. Mary right then and there! There was no wait. Dr. Mary and her team are exceptional. They treat you like a real person! I felt confident, informed, and listened to. That’s right, a doctor that hears you. And she spent TIME with me! Not some 10min appt where most doctors are rushing to get out of the room. The facility is a converted RV and let me tell you it is cute, comfortable, and classy. They got all the equipment and even a bedside ultrasound! I’m so impressed!

Jolene L. • May 26, 2023

Dr. Mary is kind and actually listens when I describe my symptoms. I’ve been told in the past it’s all in my head, some women have a harder time with pain and that it’s perfectly normal to pass out, feel nauseous dizzy and extremeShow morely tired when golf ball sized clots come out of me. It’s not normal and it’s not in my head. Ever since switching to Dr. Mary I feel like there is hope for me to live a life not in agony for 10 days out of every month. I got an IUD yesterday and immediately cried when she finished because of past trauma. She was so kind and supportive while she listened to my experience and let me cry. For 27 years I have been dealing with this and finally have hope of finding relief.

Dr. Mary listens well and takes a modern approach to women’s healthcare including a holistic view of the whole person. She is also a skilled surgeon !

Kristi C. • April 09, 2024

Great experience with Dr. Mary!

Tatiana M. • March 31, 2024

Was the best reproductive healthcare visit I’ve had as a queer person specifically discussing my individual needs! She made me feel super comfortable.

Molly Z. • March 01, 2024

Thank you for seeing me today. I am so grateful to have found you! The conversation as unexpected, invigorating, uplifting, and liberating. Thank you for doing what you do and being the genuine person you are. I look forward to future visits and conversations!

Kenneth O. • February 04, 2024

Dr. Mary Howard and her team are excellent! Her mobile clinic is just as warm and inviting as her personality. She listens with intent to understand and makes me feel like a partner in my care. I’ve also had the opportunity to work alongside her in the hospital setting. She works extremely well under pressure, all the while ensuring her patients are safe and cared for. I would highly recommend her and her team for your OBGyn needs.

Nicole C. • December 09, 2023

Best Dr. I've ever been to!!!

Jill B. • December 06, 2023

I loved how open and caring my appointment was. Just a great experience. Thank you so much for being there for me!

Kenneth O. • November 27, 2023

Comforting!

Marissa M. • November 02, 2023

Wow! Dr. Mary and her medical asst Laura were a breath of fresh air. I felt well cared for both clinically and personally. Thank you

Snowzie V. • October 12, 2023

I had a great experience with Mary in the RV clinic! Not only do I appreciate how professional and personable she is, but also the mobile environment. The idea of moving services to where people with less access need them is absolutely BRILLIANT!

Jennifer H. • August 14, 2023

My interaction with Dr Mary and her staff have exceeded my expectations.I not only will continue to go to her but I will recommend her to all my friends.

Carol C. • August 12, 2023

I LOVE FEM-FORWARD!!!!

Brianna M. • August 08, 2023

Hands down the BEST interaction I have even had with a Dr. And their staff. Beyond welcoming, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable. I am so happy I made an appointment here and will continue to do so.

Kelli P. • August 07, 2023

Dr Mary is AMAZING! Her mobile clinic is so welcoming and her staff is amazing. It was so nice to feel like there wasn’t a 20 minute time limit on your appointment to get to the next patient down the hall. Love being able to call and talk to someone that is in direct contact with her immediately, rather than sending messages and leaving voicemails that don’t get returned. I was a little nervous about my first appointment, but I am SO glad I went! I will definitely be back and will recommend her to anyone looking for a new gyno.

Krista C. • August 05, 2023

My experience with Dr. Mary and her team was exceptional. As a Healthcare provider myself I often hear how "doctors don't listen," that couldn't be further from the truth at Fem Forward. I was given ample time to tell my story during my appointment, and was met with compassion and understanding from the whole team. The environment was welcoming and disarming, I felt like I was talking with family. Dr. Mary heard my concerns and went above and beyond to explain her medical diagnosis and treatment recommendations in a way that helped me to feel educated, heard, and safe. Some people truly have a calling and Dr. Mary is right where she should be; serving women and families. I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Fem Forward team!

Nikkiel L. • August 03, 2023

Dr. Mary was absolutely wonderful. Meeting her for the first time I was extremely nervous especially being a mobile clinic but walking in there I was so relieved. Dr Mary and her staff (I'm sorry I forgot her name) they both were so nice and warming. Made my visit extremely comfortable. Definitely recommend going to see Dr Mary Afsari-Howard.

Kayla A. • August 02, 2023

Safe place, friendly, professional.

Sasha L. • August 02, 2023

Cannot recommended Dr. Howard enough. Best doctor I’ve ever had and her mobile clinic is inviting/comfortable. She is caring, personable and down to earth. She’s great at explaining things and educating in a way you can easily understand. Terra and Laura are wonderful and welcoming.

Crystal S. • July 31, 2023

Love the cozy feeling of the mobile clinic. It was so easy to get an appointment. Everyone was very understanding and nice. The doctor made me feel very comfortable and heard.

Amida K. • July 29, 2023

So far the best experiences I have had after seeing an OB/GYN. Everyone was so welcome and made me feel at easy right away. I felt so comfortable talking to Dr. Mary and the other staff. I like the cozy setting and would recommend it to anyone who feels they haven’t been heard yet.

Amida K • July 29, 2023

Very sweet and compassionate care. Will be returning.

Aysha O. • July 18, 2023

She continues to be the most pleasant and personable doctor that I’ve ever had.

Robin W. • July 01, 2023

10000% not what I expected , but was not let down ! Dr Mary, as well as her staff made sure to make me feel comfortable before just rushing through I highly recommend

Kylee K. • June 28, 2023

Dr. Mary and the team are amazing. The atmosphere they've created is so welcoming! As someone who struggles with chronic pain - going to the doctor is rarely a positive experience. Every time I have seen Dr. Mary I have felt heard and like she honors my experience with my body and is there to help. She explains things so well and the rest of the team are so helpful and accomodating with scheduling, insurance, follow up questions, etc. If you're on the fence, I definitely recommend Dr. Mary!

Haley S. • June 26, 2023

I had an amazing experience. Dr. Mary is so personable and you can tell that she truly cares about you as a whole person and not just ob/gyn related. Her and Laura, her medical assistant, were also very professional and made me feel comfortable from the moment I walked in.
