Dr. Harb has the best bedside manner and always spends time making sure all my questions are answered. He is very thorough and explains everything clearly and has a great personality making the appointment very relaxed and not so bad considering it's usually an uncomfortable reason that I"m having to see him in the first place.

After procrastinating for months thinking the problem would get better I chose to see Dr.Harb based on his extensive training and high ratings from UHC insurance and couldn’t be happier that I did! It’s not something anyone really wants to do but after all, he does this every day, so rest assured you are being treated by an extremely competent, professional, caring surgeon and staff. Problem resolved quickly and so glad I finally feel back to normal.

My visit was like talking to a friend rather than a doctor for the first time. Explained and answered all questions pertaining to my situation on "my time", not rushing me out the door! (I might add, with a touch of humor that helped ease my stress of being there!) Left there feeling GREAT! Staff were friendly and helpful. You won't find a better Colorectal doctor! Thank you Dr. Harb! Jeanette Hahn, Ashland City,Tn, 4/25/19

After having my gallbladder removed in 2010, I began suffering from occasional diarrhea which escalated to daily bouts along with fecal incontinence. After several years of fear and anxiety of traveling or bring in public locations in 2017 I was referred to Dr. William Harb. After several tests, he recommended an Interstim Implant. It has been a month now since my surgery and the results have been amazing. Dr. Harb is a kind, caring and compassionate doctor. I will forever be thankful!

Two years ago, I was referred to a specialist from my primary care physician. That specialist performed a variety of tests and concluded...nothing was wrong. Symptoms persisted. Now 2019, I gave up the guessing game and visited Dr. Harb upon reading great reviews online. I’m finally celebrating RELIEF from discomfort and irritation that has affected my quality of life for the last 2 years. 1. Visit Dr. Harb for your 1st opinion. 2. Even if it’s for a 2nd opinion, never wait 2 years to see him!!

Dr Harb’s staff was warm, personable, professional! A cancellation allowed me to see him and he was able to do my procedure in the office, alleviating discomfort to my great relief. He answered all my questions thoroughly, exuding cheerfulness and trust. I highly respect and recommend him! I tried 4 times to send a review but your printed address was rejected.

Dr. Harb and his staff are amazing. I am 3 months post opp for a fissure that plagued me for 2-3 years thinking it was hemorrhoids. After reading his great reviews, I decided to go see him. From the time I walked in, the treatment and concern I received from the staff and Dr. Harb was amazing. The surgery was a great success and I feel like a new person, no longer dreading using the restroom. I used to have to lay there for an hour after in pain but now no pain at all. I am so thankful.

Who knew you could love your colorectal surgeon?! Dr. Harb was just outstanding. He saw me within 24 hours of my GI's referral, then had me scheduled for surgery within 24 hours of my office visit with him. The driving factor was his willingness to accommodate a long standing trip I had planned for the next week (as well as an important Preds game!). He was so friendly, as was his staff. It was terrific to have a physician so caring of me and my plans. And a sense of humor! Thank you!

I am so very grateful and THANKFUL to Dr. Harb. I have been putting off seeing a specialist for a very long time. This was a huge fear for me, and was also embarrassing. I have white coat syndrome in general, so times that by 10. Dr. Harb's bed side manner is off the charts - seriously. He made me feel so at ease and he’s extremely down to earth and compassionate. His office runs like a well-oiled machine and his entire staff was knowledgeable and kind.

Dr. Harb and his staff made are amazingly caring, thoughtful and knowledgeable. No one wants to have to see a proctologist, but they made my experience comfortable and much less embarrassing than I had expected--from his front office staff to his nurse and surgery team--I would highly recommend him to anyone!

What can I say about Dr. Harb and his staff at the Colorectal Center; saying that they were “top notch” doesn’t even begin to do them justice. After an overzealous surgery caused me some extremely debilitating issues, I was referred to Dr. Harb for diagnosis and treatment. From my 1st visit I knew that I had been sent to the right place. From the scheduling to the level of care that these fine providers strive to achieve, you will never be left in the dark .
