What Imran Haque Means for Rural North Carolina

Imran Haque is one of rural North Carolina’s most recognizable doctors, having served the underprivileged areas of Ramseur and Asheboro for more than fifteen years. He came to the area near the turn of the millennium, shortly after founding his own medical center in Horizon Internal Medicine. Imran Haque offers basic preventative medicine regimens and treatments for ailments and illnesses, as well as several procedures in cosmetic medicine, including body contouring and unsightly hair removal.

After earning an undergraduate degree, Mr. Imran Haque enlisted in Universidad Iberoamerican, a medical college in the Caribbean islands, just tens of miles off the southeastern coast of the United States. Imran Haque graduated from that program in 1998 with honors, soon after traveling to Virginia to complete three years’ residency to finalize his ability to practice internal medicine. He found an opening at the Internal Medicine Program at the University of Virginia’s Roanoke-Salem location. Almost exactly three years after he started in 1998, he earned his license in internal medicine, traveling to bordering North Carolina’s rural areas to give help to those with little money to spare.

In every year since his 2001 debut in North Carolina, Imran Haque has passed necessary Maintenance of Certification Programs in internal medicine to maintain active licensure to serve the rural residents of the Tar Heel state.

Today, Dr. Imran Haque specializes cosmetic procedures, diabetes management, and medical weight loss.

360 resurfacing utilizes lasers that tighten up wrinkles and unsmooth dermal surfaces to take years of natural wear and tear off of patients’ bodies. Imran Haque provides this treatment to all areas of the body, and usually requires no more than four to five sessions for at least six months of rejuvenated skin.

Laser hair removal is another one of Imran Haque’s specialties, again using lasers to strip away unsightly hairs from facial, chest, and intimate areas of the body.

Renown Health Set for Spring Expansion

Renown Health is working towards opening a new clinic that will focus on families in the South Reno area this spring. They will be offering both primary care services to their clients as well as providing a laboratory for their testing. They have high hopes that this expansion will lead to an increase of their services later on as more of the area’s residents choose Renown as their primary care physicians.

Renown Health is currently the only locally governed healthcare network in Reno that is not-for-profit. This model has ensured that Renown Health has quickly become a client favorite, as they focus on reinvesting into programs and equipment that will directly help their community. This recent expansion is the newest step in their commitment to the Reno area.

The medical director, Dr. McCormack, recently explained that one of the focuses of this new clinic was to offer a more inviting setting for their patients. The organization made this decision based off of input from their community advisory board. This board is made up of small business, nonprofit organizations, healthcare and education providers, local government, public safety officials, and those that work in major industries around Reno. This committee has been crucial in offering the board of directors the insight they need to grow in the community.

The new clinic will be set in the Summit Mall due to the growing population in the Truckee Meadows’ as well as the improvements in the local economy. The community has seen more people coming into the area with many settling into the South Reno area. This new clinic will work to ensure that these newcomers have access to the medical care that they need.

The new Renown Health clinic will open with a staff of eleven. Renown is working on adding at one or more primary care physicians and at least one more nurse practitioner to the clinic. With this addition, Renown now has twelve primary care clinics throughout the state.
