Driven by a strong desire to create a pediatric practice that serves the needs of the community, Dr. O’Hara decided to create her own practice, Ideal Pediatric and Adolescent Care. With a strong belief that healthcare is best delivered through building one relationship at a time, Dr. O’Hara's practice is about investing the time in getting to know each family on a personal level in order to find the best health care solutions, big or small.
Born and raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Dr. O’Hara lives in Lewisburg with her husband and young son and has two grown daughters. Her community philosophy is evident not just in how she practices medicine. Volunteering at local schools and libraries and giving talks on nutrition, safety and growth and developmental issues; writing articles for the local newspaper and volunteering for local youth sports; these are areas where she truly enjoys interacting with her patients and their families around the community.
Dr. O’Hara graduated Magna Cum Laude from Wilkes University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. She received her medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed an internship in General Internal Medicine at Lehigh Valley Medical Center before finding her true calling and went on to complete her Pediatric residency at Janet Weis Children’s’ Hospital in Danville, PA (Geisinger Medical Center). Dr. O’Hara is a fellow in the American Academy of Pediatrics and continues to maintain her board certification.
Mary Beth O’Hara has a passion for her work and helping to meet the needs of your family. She wants all families to feel welcome and relaxed at her new practice and has designed it to feel like a home. In fact, her goal is to create the ideal experience for parents and children.
