Dr. Marie Mona Forgie
Obstetrician and gynecologist, Aurora Sinai Medical Center, Wisconsin, US
“Knowing more about our physical selves allows us to have more control and confidence in our lives. In my role as an obstetrician and gynecologist, I aim to help people feel empowered and strong in their bodies.”
Areas of expertise
  • Gender-affirming care 
“Each day, I am driven by my desire to help people learn about themselves, become comfortable in their bodies, and have more authority in their reproductive decision-making. When I see my patients, I aim to be kind and understanding, listening to any fears or hesitation they may have, so we can become collaborative partners on their treatment journey.”
