Dr. Sharon Gohari first became interested in physiatry in medical school—but not because of her studies. It was her father’s devastating MCA stroke, and the care that helped him overcome its effects that led her to physiatry. “One of the first thoughts I had was, how is he going to get back to the way that he was before?” she says.

Dr. Gohari wanted more for her dad than just his disability, and with the help of physiatrist Dr. Jim Sliwa, they found it. Seeing the progress her father made under Dr. Sliwa’s care inspired her to pursue physiatry as a specialty. “I thought, this is what I need to do, this is my calling!”
