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.

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”.
