Introducing Our Newest Aesthetic Provider — Claire Hinkle, PA-C! 

Claire Hinkle PA-C Introduction

Meet the Mind Behind Our Newest Aesthetic Talent 

As our newest aesthetic provider, Claire Hinkle focuses on helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals through non-surgical, minimally invasive procedures. Her kind and gentle approach make her the perfect fit for those seeking a nurturing experience.

If you have been a surgical patient of Donaldson Plastic Surgery, there’s a good chance you’ve already encountered Claire along your journey! She was previously tenured on our post-op experience team, which has given her a truly unique and well-rounded perspective on the patient experience.

“After surgery is a very vulnerable time for patients. Throughout my experiences with those patients, I really found that I’m good at providing a reassurance and a sense of calm.”

-Claire Hinkle, PA-C

Hometown Talent with a Distinguished Medical Background 

Claire spent a good part of her childhood in Upper Arlington and Mansfield, OH. She obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology from Miami University before acquiring her Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Ohio Dominican University.

After graduation, she took her talents to Rush University Memorial Hospital in Chicago in the Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery department. She spent almost 7 years specializing in post-surgical care for head and neck patients before making her way back home to Columbus with her incredible and supportive family. 

“I’ve always been on the surgery side of medicine. In Chicago, I worked in head and neck surgery, and with that came facial reconstruction procedures. That’s what sparked my interest in how medicine can be on the creative and artistic side.”

The Specialized Treatments She Offers

As the newest talent on our incredible aesthetic team, Claire will perform cosmetic mainstays including Botox, fillers and laser treatments. She will also adopt some of our more recent offerings like Avéli for getting rid of cellulite and Morpheus8 to help patients see tightened skin across the body.

“Because these treatments and procedures really work, we have great trust in the devices and see the awesome results. There’s nothing more satisfying than practicing something that gives you the result that you want!”

SkinMedica Tinted Essential Defense SPF

Speaking of Great Results… Try One of Claire’s Go-To Products:

“I absolutely love the Tinted Essential Defense from SkinMedica! It gives you that much-needed protection against the sun along with just a touch of color.

Surrounding Herself with the Best in the Industry 

Claire draws inspiration from the influencers she follows, including Kaitlyn Nelson, also known as “The Plastics PA.” Kaitlyn just opened her own medspa as a Physician Assitant; this tenacity, talent and knowledge keep Claire motivated to make the most of each day.

Off of Instagram, she doesn’t have to look too far for inspiration: 

“I’m so lucky to be joining the ranks of 3 incredible providers here at Donaldson Plastic Surgery. Each one seems to have their own niche; Adrienne is renowned for her filler work, Paige is the Morpheus8 skin tightening queen, and Stacie is incredibly skilled with the more specialized treatments like Avéli and vaginal rejuvenation. I can’t think of a better group of ladies to learn alongside!”

Having worked in the hospital setting for so long, Donaldson Plastic Surgery has become a revitalizing change of pace for her.
