Ghulam D. Qureshi, MD

Dr. Qureshi's Patient Care Philosophy:

I believe in individualized care with 100 percent involvement with each patient.


What Patients say about Dr. Qureshi:

If they could all be this caring...Dr. Qureshi is a very caring doctor. I know that he's very interested not only in my cancer, but also in my health overall.


For many years Dr. Ghulam Qureshi had a very successful practice in Richmond — but he chose to merge his practice with Virginia Cancer Institute to help his patients even more. “I decided to join the Virginia Cancer Institute because of its reputation and because its resources can help me care for my patients,” says Dr. Qureshi. “The practice not only draws on the collective wisdom of 20 physicians, but it also participates in a broad range of clinical trials. In addition, Virginia Cancer Institute has state-of-the-art facilities and a commitment to staying abreast of the latest advances in cancer treatment.”

A native of Pakistan, Dr. Qureshi is board certified in both internal medicine and hematology. He is a 1964 graduate of King Edward Medical College in Lahore, Pakistan, and from there, he came to Richmond to complete an internship at Johnston-Willis Hospital and a residency in internal medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. Dr. Qureshi also completed a hematology fellowship at VCU Medical Center and a research fellowship at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. He served as a professor of medicine at the VCU School of Medicine from 1974 to 1988. Dr. Qureshi currently treats patients in Virginia Cancer Institute’s Parham Doctors’ Hospital location. His areas of special interest include benign and malignant hematology, colon cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma.

When he is not busy caring for his patients, Dr. Qureshi enjoys fly fishing and tending to his fruit tree orchard.
