Biography

About Mary Clarkin, CNP

Mary Clarkin CNP, MS is a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner working at the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus at the Center for Specialized Women's Health. She received her MS from Virginia Commonwealth University, Medical College of VA and certification as a nurse practitioner from NCC in Women's Health. She is a certified menopause practitioner through NAMS. Her special interests include: menopause, hormone therapy, gynecological care for women of all ages, contraception, vaginitis, and osteoporosis. She precepts NP students and physicians who are completing their fellowships in Women's health.

In the Center for Specialized Women’s Health, we pursue leading edge therapies for women. There are several new FDA approved pelvic floor stimulators that are available for women with urine leakage and pelvic muscle weakness as well as fecal incontinence and mild degrees of pelvic organ prolapse. These new pelvic floor stimulation devices are custom-fit and use stimulation to strengthen pelvic floor muscles and inhibit overactive bladder muscles while giving visual biofeedback and audible guidance. Precise adjustments can be made to ensure effective muscle training. Some women, who have only stress urinary leakage, and/or are 6 weeks post partum from vaginal delivery, may need simpler devices and all therapies can be done in the comfort and privacy of ones home. These devices can compliment, or in many cases be used instead of surgery or medications.

I feel very comfortable with Mary Clarkin. She is very sweet and caring.

Reviewed on Oct 4, 2016

Mary Clarkin is a very nice lady and addressed all of my questions. She is knowledgeable and soft-spoken. That day they may have been running behind in seeing patients as I felt she seemed alittle rushed with my time with her. Overall, it was a good experience.

My experience with Mary was wonderful. I was nervous, but she calmed me down and listened to what I had to say. When I brought up medication concerns she worked to find what fit my needs I'm very happy with her and the clinic!

Mary Clarkin is top notch in my opinion. She listens, she relates to me as a woman and does not rush the appointment. I appreciate that.
