Three Plastic Surgery Symposiums to Feature Dr. Rod Rohrich

Dr. Rod Rohrich’s ability to restore his clients’ youthful appearance and provide them with the definition they desire in both their face and body is known around the world. His skills have earned him the recognition of being one of the best plastic surgeons in all of the United States. Based out of Dallas Texas, the board certified surgeon with extensive experience in both reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery has been with the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute since 1986. He had fellowships through both Oxford University and Harvard Medical School where he partook in additional surgical training. The University of Michigan provided Dr. Rohrich with his residency after graduation from the Baylor College of Medicine where he was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Society.

Having chaired over 100 educational symposiums and participated in many others related to plastic surgery and medicine in the past, he is continuing his pursuit to educate others this year by chairing 2 more and participating in another in just February and March of 2018. These events are all known around the world and will feature esteemed faculty and unique learning experiences.

The first of the three, the Baker Gordon Education Symposium, will not have Rohrich involved in the organization but will feature him as faculty. His involvement includes participation in panels, lectures, and even a live surgical procedure performed in front of an audience of his peers and students.

The Dallas Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine Meeting and the Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting are on their 21st and 35th years. Dr. Rod Rohrich will be participating in these both chairing and organizing as well as presenting and educating. While the Medicine Meeting will feature a broad array of subjects over many different aesthetic procedures and invites medical professionals besides surgeons, the Rhinoplasty Meeting has a specific focus on rhinoplasty and is aimed only at surgeons and medical doctors. Dr. Rod Rohrich will be moderating and featured in panels, giving lectures, and performing procedures in hands on cadaver labs.  About Rohrich

Dr. Imran Haque’s Advice for Young Doctors

Dr. Imran Haque, the well known internist from North Carolina, has some advice for younger people who are interested in following in his footsteps and achieving the kind of success that he has seen. First of all, he says, you should always treat others the way you would want them to treat you. Dr. Imran Haque also says that you should be kind and compassionate to your patients. Many doctors do not do that.

On the other hand,  Dr. Haque says that you have to be strong in what you believe in and in your goals. Yes, you have to be kind and nice, but if you are too nice and you give in to whatever people push you to do, you will end up ruining your career as a Doctor. You have to realize that some people do not care about you and only want to advance their own agenda. You have to be realistic, not naive.

Dr. Imran Haque explains that you have to treat your patients as people. Many people end up treating their patients as cases. They get too caught up in the medical details of the patient and start treating them like something they studied in medical school. You have to remember that your patient is a person, and they should be treated like a human. You have to think about their feelings. If you do that, you will be successful and patients will come to you more.

What does Dr. Imran Haque like to do when he is not working? He actually likes sports a lot. There are many kinds of sports he enjoys playing and following. He thinks that North Carolina State University has the best sports teams, even though others may not think so. He also likes to travel, but of course, as a doctor, he has to be there for his patients.

The most satisfying moment in his career was when he was able to start his own practice. He really wanted to be able to provide patients with the kind of care and treatment that he knew they needed.

Why Dr. Imran Haque is a Godsend for North Carolina’s Residents

Imran Haque is a licensed, certified, and reputable medical doctor that specializes in internal medicine. He graduated from his residential program in 2001 at the University of Virginia, where he trained for three years to become licensed in practicing internal medicine. Dr. Imran Haque practices in rural North Carolina, largely because he was trained in several rural areas throughout residency, where he realized that people in the southeastern United States’ rural areas were largely underserved and needed better medical care. Dr. Haque decided to live in North Carolina, as it’s next to mountains, borders the Atlantic Ocean, and is close to his family.

While countless people in the rural communities of Asheboro and Ramseur trust Dr. Imran Haque, not everyone knows his background – not too many people know their doctor personally, across the entire world, for that matter. Let’s look into Dr. Imran Haque’s background, who he is, and how he became the resounding success that he is today.

Dr. Imran Haque – back in these times, he wasn’t a doctor yet – enrolled in a Caribbean medical school named Universidad Iberoamerican, the most prestigious of four medical schools in the semitropical region, in 1994. Four years later, now-medical doctor Imran Haque graduated from the program with honors, soon finding placement at the University of Virginia’s residential program.

He quickly founded Horizon Internal Medicine after leaving Virginia, a fully accredited, North Carolina-licensed medical practice. Within one year of the first facility becoming a hit, he founded the second location, having always accepted new patients in both Ramseur and Asheboro.

Today, Imran Haque focuses on cosmetic procedures including 360 laser resurfacing and body contouring. However, some of the more popular treatments this renowned doctor offers include diabetes management and medical weight loss, two things that many people in rural areas need help with.
