About Clare O'Hare, MD

Clare O'Hare, MD is a board-certified pediatric cardiologist, current staff member of Cleveland Clinic Children's and assistant professor of pediatrics at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.

She then completed an additional year of advanced cardiac training in non-invasive imaging.

Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

One of the kindest doctors I have ever encountered. Took the time to explain everything and called me herself for follow up labs

I was shocked! Dr Oclare truly gave her time and even drew a picture so dad and I could understand what she saw. She really gave the best explanation and without imposing fear she let us know IF things are different from the heart monitor she would request further testing. I truly was amazed I even told friends how at ease she made things. Giving all the info she could. Actually including my child in the conversation as well. I truly was pleased with her care.
