Dr. Raja Goli

Hello, and thank you for visiting my official website!

If you are visiting my official website, it may be because you were referred to me by another health care professional and you want to know more about me. Please allow me to provide you with my biography as well as my major clinical and surgical interests.

My family moved from India to the United States when I was a small child. We lived in Ohio for a few years where my father, Dr. Venkat Goli, completed part of a General Surgery residency. We then lived in Canada for a few years where my father completed a residency in Urology.

I finished elementary school and I graduated from high school in a small coal-mining town in southeastern Kentucky where my father practiced Urology for many years.

I earned my college Bachelor of Arts degree in Lexington, Kentucky at Transylvania University where I was a Biological Sciences major and I was on the Dean’s List for outstanding academic achievement. Transylvania University was ranked #1 in the category of “Regional Liberal Arts Colleges in the South” by U.S. News & World Report magazine the year that I graduated

I earned my Doctor of Medicine Degree in Louisville, Kentucky at the University of Louisville School of Medicine where I received Honors.

After medical school, I completed two separate three-year residencies and a one-year fellowship. I am actually two doctors in one. I am an Internist as well as an Ophthalmologist, although I currently limit my practice to Ophthalmology.

I completed my first three-year residency in Internal Medicine in Los Angeles, California at the world-famous University of Southern California medical center and I was board certified by American Board of Internal Medicine for 10 years.

I completed a pre-residency fellowship in Ophthalmic Pathology in Washington, D.C. at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. The A.F.I.P. was the top place in the world to study Ophthalmic Pathology. I published a scientific paper in the medical journal Ophthalmic, Plastic, and Reconstructive Surgery based on some of my work at the A.F.I.P.

I completed my second three-year residency in Ophthalmology in Cincinnati, OH, at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and I am currently board certified by The American Board of Ophthalmology. The University of Cincinnati Ophthalmology Department is a very well respected training program where I learned eye surgery from internationally renowned Ophthalmologists in leading medical centers such as the University of Cincinnati Hospital, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and the Cincinnati Eye Institute. I believe that the excellent eye surgery training that I received at the University of Cincinnati residency program prepared me very well for private practice.

I currently practice in the state of Ohio and my major clinical and surgical interests include, but are not limited to: Cataract Surgery, Diabetic Eye Disease, Eyelid Disorders, Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, and other serious eye conditions. In my practice, I use the latest technology to provide highly advanced eye care to my patients.

I have many interests outside of medicine. My family lives in several different states which gives me a great excuse to travel which I really enjoy. I love driving my cars, exercising, photography, chess, watching sports, dining in nice restaurants, and other activities.

Please contact me if you or a loved one may be interested in the advanced eye care that I provide.

Thank you again for visiting my official website!
