Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Harb "Colorectal surgery is a narrow field. Thus, I am able to concentrate on a limited number of diseases/conditions. This allows me to stay abreast of what is new in my field. I care for problems that may be minor, but certainly don't seem minor to my patients! I enjoy talking to people and getting to know my patients. This allows me to match the right treatment to the right patient. While I am a surgeon, I enjoy the ability to get many people back to speed without surgery. "
