Years of Experience
Dr. Marah graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008, then earned his medical degree at The American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine in Sint Maarten in 2014. He completed his Internal Medicine Residency at New York Presbyterian, Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, then was selected to join the Cardiovascular Diseases Fellowship Program at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) in 2017. During his training, he was awarded both Outstanding Clinical Cardiology Fellow and Outstanding Teaching Fellow of The Year by MD Anderson Cancer Center and McGovern Medical School. He was also inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) National Medical Honor Society for his educational achievement, teaching, and commitment to patient care.
He transitioned to advanced training in Interventional Cardiology at UTHealth, during which he served as the Chief Interventional Cardiology Fellow, publishing numerous articles, and authoring a chapter in a Practical Handbook for Impella Catheter Use. He graduated in 2021, receiving the distinguished professional designation of Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC), for his outstanding credentials, achievements, and community contribution to Cardiovascular medicine.
Dr. Marah is well known for his interpersonal skills, bedside manners, professionalism, and work ethic. He personalizes each patient’s care, thoroughly explaining the diagnosis and proposed treatment plan. He is a meticulous operator, highly skilled in both the transfemoral and transradial catheterizations. He performs the majority of his procedures from the “radial approach”, in order to improve patient comfort, minimize vascular complications, promote early ambulation, and decrease hospital length of stay. His goal is to promptly reunite patients with their families, and improve the current standards of Cardiovascular care within his community.
His current areas of clinical practice include coronary interventions with/without percutaneous left ventricular assisted device (LVAD) support, peripheral vascular interventions including limb salvage revascularization and venous insufficiency ablations, percutaneous thrombectomy of venous thromboembolisms (deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism), and Structural Heart interventions including Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), atrial septal defect (ASD) and patent foramen ovale (PFO) repair, left atrial appendage occlusion (WATCHMAN), and alcohol septal ablation for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy.
Dr. Marah enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, and supporting local sports teams. He is a very competitive soccer player, avid basketball enthusiast, and would most likely be heard listening to smooth jazz during his office hours. He is fluent in both English and French.
