Claire Hoverman, MD

Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology

“I believe women are the secret to a healthier future. If I can convince a woman to make healthy decisions, help her feel better about herself and her body, or help support a healthy pregnancy then that woman will have more to offer and teach her family. In my experience as an Ob/Gyn and working with Doctors Without Borders, as a physician sometimes you feel like you are just a drop of water in the middle of the ocean. But to that one patient and to her family, the one drop of water, it makes all the difference in the world.”

Dr. Hoverman grew up in Austin, TX. Born in Oregon, but over a jar of Texas soil, and moved to Austin at the age of six months. After working with Doctors Without Borders and exploring the mountains of Utah she soon realized it was time to come home to Austin and joined The Ob/Gyn Group of Austin in 2016. She treats all ages of women from adolescence to menopause, and all diagnoses from irregular periods and pregnancy to prolapse and urinary incontinence. She has a particular interest in vaginal surgery and pelvic floor repair. If she’s not in clinic or delivering babies she will be outside hiking, running, traveling and spending time with her husband Chris and family.
