When residents of rural central North Carolina think of family practice doctors, most likely think of Imran Haque, a medical doctor with more than fifteen years’ experience in internal medicine. Dr. Imran Haque works at several hospitals in the area, most notably Randolph Hospital, as well as his own clinics, both going by the name of Horizon Internal Medicine.
Asheboro and Ramseur, located on both sides of Imran Haque’s living space, are the two cities hosting Horizon Internal Medicine, both seeing over one thousand individuals every year. Imran Haque performs tons of wellness exams, medication refills, and basic preventative measures, although he most enjoys carrying out cosmetic procedures for his many patients, including Botox injections and dermal fillers, body contouring, and laser wrinkle, dark spot, and hair removal and more
Universidad Iberoamericana is the medical college Imran Haque graduated from nearly twenty years ago, where he took home a degree with honors, as if earning a medical doctorate wasn’t prestigious enough on its own. After graduating from the Caribbean medical school in 1998, Dr. Haque moved to Virginia to complete a residency program in the field of internal medicine. Following three consecutive years’ worth of physically and mentally taxing work, Imran Haque finally became a free-standing practitioner of internal medicine.
While in the southern state of Virginia, he was exposed to several facilities in rural areas whose patients didn’t have access to quality care, unlike residents of larger cities. As these rural areas are often low-income, with its residents not having as many vehicles or insurance policies as those of larger areas, Imran Haque found his calling – treating the underserved populations of rural central North Carolina.
Today, Dr. Imran Haque prefers to make patients happy, prevent the risk of life-threatening events, and perform cosmetic procedures and treatments, rather than working in busy hospitals.
