Although there are few things more relaxing than chilling out in the rural countryside, most people who live in rural areas don’t have great health insurance or high averages of health care. Central North Carolina is no exception, with far more square miles of wooded nothingness than developed urban areas. Dr. Imran Haque is a leading physician in rural central North Carolina. He’s worked in the area for longer than 16 years, currently employed at two hospitals and two internal medicine practices.
Many people who’ve lived in Ramseur, Asheboro, and nearby areas are familiar with Imran Haque, a large portion of which have trusted him to take care of their family members and themselves, visiting his medical facilities of Horizon Internal Medicine in the two towns at least once per year.
Imran Haque traveled to the Caribbean islands to initially attend medical school, earning a spot at Santo Domingo’s own Universidad Iberoamericana. Out of three other medical colleges in the island chain, UNIBE – short form of Universidad Iberoamericana – is unarguably the most sought-after school. Four years following his start in 1994, Imran Haque earned a medical doctorate with honors.
Just weeks after he wrapped up the Santo Domingo-based program, Imran Haque traveled hundreds of miles north to attend the University of Virginia’s Internal Medicine Residency Program at Roanoke-Salem Hospital. Working literally every week from his initialization in 1998 to his completion of the rigorous program in 2001, Imran Haque found himself stationed at a variety of clinic, including several in rural Virginia.
Imran Haque soon after realized that people in rural areas were underserved in the healthcare field, deciding to work in rural North Carolina as soon as he finished. Today, Imran Haque provides tons of cosmetic procedures to boost patients’ views of their bodies, alongside basic preventative care.
