She was amazing, fit me in and clearly answered any questions I had. I only wish the glenview location had a nurse practitioner lactation consultant. I felt understood on both a medical and lactation end which rarely happens with northwestern doctors as I’ve had formula pushed on me by 2 already with my previous child.

We would definitely recommend Claire to other family and friends. She is an excellent pediatric provider. It is evident that she cares greatly for the well-being and health of her patients. She takes her time to hear my children's questions and concerns and always gives her professional advice that is age-appropriate and sound. She always explains and includes the children in the discussions about their health, i.e. vaccines, upcoming appts, diet, exercise, and the importance of check-ups, etc.

Disclosures

Claire H. Rathnau-Minnella, APRN reported no external professional relationships for calendar year 2021.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
