Dr. Alex Roher, M.D.
As the founder of SD Botox, Dr. Roher took the path less traveled after graduating from the University of Arizona’s College of Medicine in 2008.
“I had to balance my love for medicine with my desire to help people who wanted to change their lives. Those weren’t always the same thing, unfortunately.”
Dr. Roher remains a practicing board-certified anesthesiologist, but his real passion remains in helping people change their lives for the better. Back in 2012, Dr. Roher opened SDBotox with a desire to help people achieve enhancements with minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Since then, SDBotox has been a groundbreaking endeavor.

“It only took one phone call with Dr. Roher to realize that we shared the same desire and that desire was patient happiness.”

Maria truly values making her patients feel comfortable by creating a trusting relationship. In her spare time, you can find Maria exploring the globe, finding balance in yoga/pilates/the beach, playing with her pup, being a foodie, showing enthusiasm for new learning experiences, and always looking for an adventure.

My favorite thing about my current career path as a cosmetic RN is the ability to be equipped with a skill set and communication/dialogue that will truly help someone see and become the best version of themselves, give them confidence, and bring internal light and happiness to their life. Although some may say these treatments are superficial, I think the results and confidence patients obtain from them are priceless and spill into other areas of their life (personal, family, spiritual, career, friends, relationships). Confidence is invaluable in the way that opportunities can open up when you feel good about yourself.
