Dr. Steven Harms Retires

Dr. Steven Harms, known around the world for his work with Breast MRI,  has retired from practicing at The Breast Center, A MANA Clinic. However, he will continue to provide consultations as needed.

Dr. Harms has been recognized in his field many times, from “Komen Foundation Scientist of the Year” by Susan G. Komen for the Cure to the annual William Beaumont Award by the American Medical Association for the outstanding physician in the nation under the age of 50. Harms has been on the “Best Doctors in America®” list since 2003.

He taught at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS), Baylor University Medical Center, and M. D. Anderson Cancer Institute, as well as serving as a visiting professor at Harvard,  Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, Stanford, Yale, and several universities in Asia and Europe.

He is a fellow of the Society of Breast Imaging, a fellow of the American College of Radiology, and certified by the American Board of Radiology.

The Breast Center values Dr. Harms’s service with the Center. We are going to miss Dr. Harms as part of our everyday care team. We are grateful to him for choosing to move back to Arkansas and practice at The Breast Center back in 2003 when we were first getting established, and for all of his years of service and leadership to our practice. Dr. Harms helped The Breast Center achieve national accreditation and a reputation for excellence in breast care. 

Dr. Harms shared these words with his patients:

Helping build The Breast Center of Northwest Arkansas, a MANA clinic, over the past 16 years has been a work of love. Circumstances of the past few months have made it apparent that I should retire for the sake of my health. I have retired effective October 1, 2020. It is reassuring to know that I leave the practice in the best of hands with an expert and conscientious staff that are capable of providing you with the highest quality care and advice. While I hope that you will continue to utilize The Breast Center of Northwest Arkansas, if you would like to have your records transferred, please contact them at 479-442-6266.

It has been a pleasure and privilege to provide care for you over the years. It has been an experience that I will always treasure. I plan to remain in Fayetteville and will continue to support and advise as needed for the future of the Breast Center. 

Best wishes, 

Steven E. Harms, MD, FACR, FSBI
