Biography

About Serge Harb, MD

Serge Harb, MD, is a staff cardiologist in the Section of Cardiovascular Imaging in the Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute. He sees patients at the Cleveland Clinic main campus.

Dr. Harb has completed all of his internal medicine, cardiology, and advanced cardiac imaging training at Cleveland Clinic main campus. He is a specialist in multimodality cardiovascular imaging and has obtained the highest level of training in all cardiac imaging modalities, including echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, cardiovascular computed tomography (CT) and cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Specialty Interests: Valvular heart disease, advanced cardiac imaging, cardiac three-dimensional printing, and evaluation of patients for minimally invasive cardiac procedures, aortic disease, infiltrative heart disease, and ischemic and non-ischemic heart disease. Dr. Harb has a special interest in advanced cardiac imaging and in the evaluation and guidance of minimally invasive procedures.

Number of Patients Treated: The Section of Cardiac Imaging in the Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine is one of the largest and most experienced in the country. The staff reads and interprets nearly 50,000 images every year. In addition, the physicians in the section are also experts in the treatment and long-term management of many types of heart conditions such as pericarditis, rheumatic heart disease and heart valve disease.

Education and Training:  Dr. Harb earned his medical degree from Saint Joseph University School of Medicine in Beirut, Lebanon, graduating with honors as class valedictorian and receiving multiple merit scholarships. He served his internal medicine residency at Cleveland Clinic during which he won the residency research activity award. He continued his cardiology fellowship training at Cleveland Clinic and was the recipient of the Wilson Foundation scholarship. He then completed his subspecialty training at Cleveland Clinic in advanced cardiac imaging and was appointed chief fellow in his last year of training. Dr. Harb joined the Cleveland Clinic medical staff in 2018.

Research, Publications and Speaking: Dr. Harb has authored more than 20 manuscripts published in peer-reviewed medical and cardiology journals.

He has also been recognized in clinical education and has received awards for excellence in teaching 3 years in a row.

About Dr. Harb: “When I am caring for someone with cardiac disease, I try to think about it from their perspective. I have spent many years studying and training in cardiovascular care at the top heart institution. For someone unfamiliar with cardiac disease, this can sometimes be overwhelming. Helping patients understand their disease and their treatment options, and working with them towards the best treatment approach for their specific condition, is my ultimate goal”.

Leisure Activities: In his leisure time, Dr. Harb enjoys traveling, playing tennis, swimming, and spending time with his family.
