It takes a particular kind of person to examine the hardships of the medical sector and determine that they want to pursue a career in that field. The educational prerequisites alone are difficult for those who are not well-versed in English. After completing the years of study and training, even the most accomplished individuals still have a long way to go.
The emotional toll that the medical sector takes on its employees is a deal breaker for many. Success in the medical sector necessitates courage, determination, pride in one’s work, tenacity, and, above all, a willingness to assist others in their time of need. It’s a very rare combo. Having said that, some have exceeded those expectations and even surpassed them by a wide margin.
The following are the top 10 doctors to keep an eye out for in 2022.
1. Dr. Mark Lowney
Dr. Mark X. Lowney was born in Bainbridge, Maryland, to an orthodontist and a registered nurse. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland. His family went to Connecticut, where his father founded a successful dental office that is still in operation today. The fact that Dr. Lowney was lured to the medical industry should come as no surprise.
Dr. Lowney received his Bachelor of Science in biology from Boston College with honors, graduating magna cum laude. He graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine with a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree in 2012.

As a practitioner of women’s health care, Dr.Lowney became aware of the various worries of his patients, particularly those relating to their advancing age.

On social media, The Real Dr. Feelgood has amassed more than 650,000 followers on Instagram and more than 10,000 fans on Studio Eros since launching his brand there in 2016.

2. Dr. Chad Deal
Dr. Robert Chad Deal, a highly skilled and well-recognized cosmetic surgeon in Chattanooga, Tennessee, got his start in entrepreneurship three years ago when he purchased Southern Surgical Arts, which he now owns and operates.

Through his partnership with Merz Aesthetics, Southern Surgical Arts currently boasts the biggest cosmetic fellowship program in the United States, and he has also established the largest GPO.

He has earned three board certifications in general surgery, cosmetic surgery, and face cosmetic surgery, in addition to his undergraduate degree.
He has gone above and beyond to ensure the success of himself and his company during a period when COVID-19 had a significant impact on the economy. Most significantly, he recognized the significance of social media marketing in today’s world. Dr. Deal’s Instagram account is verified, and in only 18 months, he has garnered more than 600,000 followers, resulting in more than half of his earnings now coming from out-of-town customers. Southern Surgical Arts has achieved tremendous national reputation while being based in a city with a population of barely 185,000 people.
3. Dr. Venus Nicolino
In a 600-square-foot home with seven other people and a German Shepherd, Dr. V grew up in West Philadelphia as a child. Her mother never finished high school, and her father made a job by jacking up ancient Chevys and busting his knuckles. She paid close attention to her work ethic, which had taught her that self-help was essential. Now she’s immersed in the realm of self-help, displaying an irreverent demeanor that can never be misconstrued for being uninterested. Genuine assistance is welcomed by real people who are dealing with real challenges.
With the release of his best-selling book “Bad Advice: How to Survive and Thrive in an Age of Bullsh*t,” Dr. V became one of the “five books that will alter your life,” according to a national press release. She has contributed to the upheaval of the modern self-help world by establishing a new self-help genre called “Nobody’s an Expert.” Dr. V is also a well-known television character who has appeared in more than 100 episodes. People gravitate to her forceful approach, which is bolstered by her blue-collar acumen; she is widely regarded as one of the most forward-thinking psychologists working today.
Dr. V has a master’s degree in counseling psychology as well as a master’s degree in clinical psychology and a doctorate in clinical psychology, among other qualifications. Dr. V can be found almost anywhere that people are in need of help regulating that troublesome organ between the ears, whether it’s on social media, television, radio, or in print. Dr. V offers harsh counsel on her podcast, “The Tea with Dr. V,” which is available to listen to and see online. She employs her warm and feisty style of psychological assistance to affect the current generation and those to come.
4. Dr. Nina Bal
Dr. Nina Bal grew up in the Italian Alps, in the town of Aosta, where she was a competitive skier and a dedicated student. Her interest in cosmetic medicine and face aesthetics drew her to Milan, where she attended dental school when she was eighteen years old. Dr. Bal grew up with a dentist as an uncle, and she knew early on that she wanted to work in the medical field throughout her youth. She finished at the top of her class in 2008, but that was not the end of her educational journey for her. Later, she went on to finish a postgraduate study in cosmetic dentistry and aesthetic restorative dentistry at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
As a mother of two grown children, Dr. Bal is a member of the General Dental Council as well as SaveFace, which is a registry of practitioners that undertake non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

5. Dr. Jonathan Kaplan
Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, better known by his stage name the Real Dr. Bae, grew up in Alexandria, Louisiana, with his six elder brothers and sister. Four of the siblings went on to become doctors out of the group of seven. Following undergrad at the University of Texas, Dr. Kaplan attended medical school at Louisiana State University New Orleans, completed his residency at LSU-Charity Hospital, and completed his cosmetic surgery fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic. He now resides in San Francisco with his family, where he operates Pacific Heights Plastic Surgery, which he founded in 2004.
Dr. Kaplan, who grew up seeing his father in the operating room, knew he wanted to be a doctor from the time he was four years old. He decided to specialize in plastic surgery at the age of four. Dr. Kaplan is an aesthetics specialist through and through, and he was the first to use the SIMI® neck lift.
In 2011, he also developed BuildMyBod Health, a platform that promotes price transparency while simultaneously generating leads. A conversational artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot is used by BuildMyBod to quickly and easily provide consumers visiting a doctor’s website with an automated, projected cost of services the consumer is considering. As a result, the doctor receives the consumer’s contact information as a lead for further investigation. His understanding of how infuriating it was for patients to be informed they couldn’t get a quote ahead of time led him to devise a solution that would benefit all parties involved.
6. Dr. Humberto Palladino
Dr. Humberto Palladino was born and raised in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, to a family of medical specialists. It’s no surprise that the medical sector sought his services. Dr. Palladino is a highly intelligent and multi-talented individual who is always at the forefront of technical advancements. As a result, his clinic, Top Aesthetics in Florida, is one of the fastest-growing practices in the country, with a clientele that includes people from all over the world. So that he can stay on top of the latest trends, he’s currently constructing a state-of-the-art facility that will offer aesthetic therapies as well as nutritional, hormonal, and functional optimization.
One of the reasons for Dr. Palladino’s international success is the personnel at Top Aesthetics, which goes above and beyond for its patients, providing full-service concierge services to ensure that patients recuperate as easily and safely as possible after their procedures. Besides that, he has also built a number of mobile applications to make it easier for patients and providers to keep in touch with one another.
Apart from working in the operating room, Dr. Palladino is also a musician, recording his own music and that of up-and-coming local artists. He is never satisfied with the status quo, whether he is at the clinic or enjoying one of his favorite pastimes. Dr. Palladino is constantly motivated to go above and beyond his job responsibilities.
7. Dr. Bobbi Peterson
Dr. Bobbi Peterson was fascinated by science while she was a child growing up in Newark, New Jersey. Now, she’s channeled her enthusiasm into becoming one of the most respected orthodontists in New York. She is one of just three Black women who practice orthodontics in Brooklyn, and she runs her own practice, Aces Braces, which she founded. A battery-operated toothbrush was also invented by her, making her the first African-American to do so. The Big Mouth Clean, as it is known, has the potential to reduce the amount of time it takes to brush one’s teeth in half.
Dr. Bobbi has made waves in a variety of ways, not just with her toothbrushes, though. She is a staunch advocate for individuals who are prone to falling through the cracks in society. During the first Tuesday of every month, her practice provides free orthodontic evaluations to those who qualify. Besides that, she works as a volunteer in community schools, where she educates both kids and teachers about the importance of dental hygiene. She even offers free screenings to pupils in the middle school grades.
It is true that the COVID-19 pandemic presented some unique problems (there is only so much a dentist or orthodontic specialist can accomplish during a video call), but Dr. Bobbi has handled them with grace and her practice has emerged from the experience ready to continue its operations. She strives to be on the cutting edge of not only innovation, but also diversity and accessibility in the dental field, which means she isn’t planning on taking a break anytime soon.
8. Dr. K. Roxanne Grawe
Dr. K. Roxanne Grawe, often known as Dr. Roxy, grew up in San Diego, California, where she had a busy childhood filled with activities such as skiing, acting, painting, dance, and cheerleading. Despite having so much on her plate, she was still awarded a scholarship to Southern Methodist University, where she would pursue a career in medicine, becoming the first person in her family to do so. Later, she went on to study medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch before relocating to Ohio for her plastic surgery residency. That’s when she met her future husband and made the decision to start a family someday in the future.
Dr. Roxy found body sculpting to be the ideal outlet for combining her passions for medicine and art; cosmetic surgery provided her with the opportunity to express her artistic side. She created ROXY Plastic Surgery in 2012 to get away from the antiseptic hospital setting that she felt sucked the life out of her creativity. Dr. Roxy built the environment she desired because she desired to be surrounded by strong and empowered women in general. She then collaborated with others to open the FOXY Recovery House, which provided patients who had traveled from out of town with a safe location to recuperate without the need for a family member to accompany them.
Even though Dr. Roxy enjoys educating people, the antiseptic world of academia has never held any interest for her. Instead, she employs more direct channels, such as social media, to enlighten people about important issues without sacrificing her sense of humour or charisma. Dr. Roxy believes that the most effective means of educating others are those that can reach them without intimidating or scaring them away, and can do so without compromising her own identity.
