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.

I am honestly happy that the other doctors have moved onto other things (presumably) and I have been assigned to the great care of Dr. Goraya. Only upon inspection of my large medical history and review of my discomfort statements and overall concerns, she was immediately compassionate and I feel 'truly' listened to me when I was speaking to her. She gave me tangible advice and was not 'laissez faire' in any way shape or form about my care. I look forward to my next appointment with her. I truly believe she will be the doctor I've been needing to make me feel/get better.
