Dr. Shazia Hyder, MD - Medical Spa Owner and Director
Internal Medicine & Cosmetic Specialist

I was born and raised in London, England. I attended medical school in Southampton, England in 1992 and completed a family medicine residency in England before moving to California in 2002. I completed my medical licensing exams and graduated from Internal Medicine Residency in 2009, at our local Loma Linda University Medical Center.

I have been a physician for over 20 years and have completed two residencies. I trained in Medical Aesthetics at the prestigious National Laser Institute in Arizona and alongside Dr. Jaime Schwartz, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon.

I founded Renaissance M.D. in 2016 to provide excellent medical aesthetic care to all of my patients and clients. We are proud to be one of the few medical spas in the Inland Empire to have a full-time doctor present.

I am board-certified in Internal Medicine and serve the residents of Redlands, California, and nearby communities. My patients have access to high-quality and attentive cosmetic treatments with procedures ranging from state-of-the-art body sculpting, like Coolsculpting, to the latest laser treatments.


I proudly served our nation’s veterans at the Loma Linda Veterans' Affairs Hospital for 6 years as an Internist. I left employment at the VA due to a diagnosis of cancer. I went through extensive medical therapies including chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, and hyperbaric oxygen treatments. I am now in remission. As a cancer survivor, I am particularly sensitive and compassionate to the needs of my patients and clients. I understand the frustration and helplessness of being a patient and therefore I strive to care for you with kindness and empathy.

Please allow me to meet you and serve you. Call us for a free consultation. Dr. Hyder.
