Dr. John Frederick Harb

John Frederick Harb, M.D. | Board Certified Urologist & Surgeon



Practicing Urology has changed dramatically over the past several years. I enjoy being on the cutting edge of evolving therapies. Especially therapies that are successful. I try to treat each patient the way I would want to be treated or have family members treated. I enjoy seeing the gratification that patients have when they receive excellent care.  I take great pride in my work and enjoy sharing these thoughts and ideas with colleagues, partners and residents.  The art of medicine, namely, being available, affable, compassionate, accessible.
