Philip Clay Haas, D.O., assistant professor at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth, is a fifth generation Texan whose family settled in Southeast Texas during the European immigration of the late 19th century.
Dr. Haas has spent the past 16 years building a robust and vibrant adult cardiology practice in the Houston Heights, Memorial City, and Katy areas. In addition to a comprehensive hospital and office based clinical practice focusing on interventional cardiovascular procedures, he has held leadership positions at Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital, Spring Branch Medical Center, Houston Heights Heart and Vascular Center, and St. Joseph’s Medical Center. He is board certified in cardiovascular medicine as well as interventional cardiology and is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology. He is a proud member of the Texas Medical Association, the Harris County Medical Society, and the Texas Heart Institute Cardiac Society.
Dr Haas is a true believer in the philosophy of treating the “whole patient” and finds great satisfaction in maintaining long term relationships with his patients, often many years after he initially encountered them during a life threatening crisis. His areas of clinical interest include clinical adult cardiovascular medicine, interventional cardiovascular procedures (angioplasty, stents, atherectomy, etc. of the coronary and peripheral vessels), advanced interventional procedures (chronic total occlusions, percutaneous left ventricular assist device supported PCI, etc.), pacemaker implantation and monitoring, and transthoracic/transesophageal echocardiography.
He and his wife Jacqueline have been married for 19 years and have three daughters, Megan (16), Danielle (14), and Lauren (12). In his time away from his patients, Dr. Haas is an avid golfer and has spent a lifetime trying to master the elusive game. He and his family enjoy yearly ski trips each winter and love to spend time together hiking and biking the Rockies and relaxing on the beaches of Mexico.
