Do you feel lost in the medical maze? Do you leave your doctor’s more confused or frustrated than when you went in? Do you have several conditions that make medical treatment difficult?Do you feel like your doctor doesn’t hear what you’re saying? Do you need help navigating the health system and no one is available to you?

As health care has changed over time, people have become more and more lost in the maze that is health care. Help is available to you at one of the most difficult times of your life. I’ve learned first-hand how frightening and frustrating medical care can be with my own parents’ experiences. It helps to have someone who can stand with you through the challenges you face.

While health care providers have great expertise, they rarely know you, the patient, as well as you and your loved ones. Patient advocates and health care advocates help patients’ voices to be heard. Health care advocacy can make health care more effective and safe and less confusing. I help people make sense of the medical maze, express their needs clearly, get answers to questions they didn’t even know to ask, and find their way through that maze. Call if you think I can help!

I work with boomers who are dealing with major changes in their health for the first time, and families whose elders are facing tough decisions about their health care. I’ve worked with young adults and families with young children, too. And with those who simply need more help managing their medical care to feel better!

Advocate's Rating:


Mary Anne is a dedicated patient advocate. She helped me navigate today’s complex healthcare system and hold my healthcare providers accountable. Mary Anne provided me with questions to ask my providers and she helped me create a plan to manage my next steps. She is knowledgeable about medications, Medicare/Medicaid, and treatments. Mary Anne can also provide critical assistance with the implementation of treatment, including asking important questions, pressing to get answers, and coordinating care. I would suggest contacting Mary Anne if you are suffering from a chronic illness, in need of complex care, or need an advocate by your side.

I’ve worked with Mary Anne Hardy of Montgomery Health Advocates, LLC on two occasions. In each case, I hired her to help me understand, process, and navigate treatment options for serious medical conditions. I found Mary Anne to be a highly knowledgeable and sympathetic. She worked with me to craft meaningful questions to ask and took detailed notes during doctor’s appointments, which helped me to understand my conditions and treatment options. Her work gave me clarity and calm during stressful health situations.

Mary Anne was a tremendous help to me during a period of several years where I needed to find first a shoulder surgeon for multiple torn tendons, and then a knee surgeon for partial or total knee replacement.

Mary Anne very patiently and thoroughly helped me sort through what data was available, traveled with me to be a second pair of eyes and ears with local surgeons, and helped me draft questions for others.

We found a good shoulder surgeon and a famous knee surgeon who alas, did not produce a good outcome.

Mary Anne was an enormous source of emotional as well as logistic support during the whole ordeal.  I strongly recommend the use of her services for helping sort out and think through the maze of decisions that must be made with very little data.

Mary Anne provided a great mix of services as we made a hard medical decision. Her sensitive, timely skills at helping us talk through options were wonderfully clarifying and supportive. She sorted through and guided us to appropriate medical materials in a very timely way, attended visits and/or helped us get the most of them.
