About Shazia Goraya, MD

Education and knowledge were the most important guiding principles in our home. I attended school at the Christian School of Pakistan. Then I received the degree from a prestigious medical school and followed it with internships in general medicine and surgery. After that, I joined the Civil Service of the country and served the underserved poor in remote areas until I was married to my husband, Tanvir Y. Goraya, PhD.  I moved to the United States, did another residency, and after a few years in private practice joined the Cleveland Clinic. I am happy being a U.S. Citizen and the mother of Sarah, in addition to being able to help fellow human beings by practicing preventative, curative internal medicine, especially in my area of special concern, osteoporosis.

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 11/5/2016, Dr. Goraya has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities.

Doctor Goraya is the most empathetic and understanding doctor I have ever had. I am very grateful for how kind she was to me during a very stressful appointment. She took her time and never made me feel rushed or judged.

I saw this doctor as my 3rd appointment related to my routine mammogram and she was the first to take the time to explain to me why I had been scheduled for follow up appointments and what was the concern. I was very impressed by her listening and retention skills; she knew my family history and my exam history without having to ask twice. She did an excellent job of explaining things to me. I would absolutely go back to her in a heartbeat.

Reviewed on May 3, 2017

Dr. Goraya was very kind and spent a lot of time with me to understand why I was there for a second opinion. She was very thorough in her exam and after my tests (mammogram & breast u/s) took a lot of time to make sure that I understood what had been seen via these tests and my options for next steps. She is probably the best doctor that I have ever seen and has spent more time with me than any other doctor that I have ever visited.

Dr. Shazia was one of the nicest doctors I have been too. Very sensitive and caring to my needs and was genuinely concerned of my concerns. I hope I don't have to go back for health reasons but if I did or I knew someone who needed it I would recommend Dr. Shazia 100%!
