St. Margaret’s newest addition to the Medical Staff is no stranger to the Midwest. With family roots in the auto industry, Dr. Harp was raised in Michigan and switched gears to earn his Bachelor of Science in biochemistry from the University of Michigan. He then worked as a scientist for a pharmaceutical company for a few years before heading to Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Pennsylvania. Afterwards, he returned to Michigan to complete his surgical residency before following that up with a surgical fellowship in proctology in Dayton, OH.

Dr. Harp and his wife, Reema, then moved to her home town of Orland Park – as they both wanted to provide the same Midwest upbringing for their children that they had experienced. They have three children—two girls, ages 7 and 5, and their son, 4. Family activities are high on their list of free time activities, with biking, soccer, dance classes and hiking near the top.
