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.
