Testimonials

Texas physicians and patients have benefited from having Dr. Jayesh Shah on the TMA Board of Trustees. I have worked with Jay when I was in TMA leadership and his being on the TMA Delegation to the AMA. He is compassionate, thoughtful, hard working and focused on improving the practice of medicine. He has my unqualified support to return to the TMA BOT.

Past President-TMA; Past President-AMA

I am honored to endorse Dr. Jay Shah for re-election to the Board of Trustees. Being a past member and Chairman of the TMA Board, I know firsthand what personal qualities are needed to serve on the Board and Jay has all of them. He is a proven leader and a compassionate physician who always put patients first.

Bill Hinchey, MD
Past President, Texas Medical Association

Dr. Jay Shah had clearly demonstrated his commitment to organized medicine throughout the many years of service to the TMA and as delegate to the AMA. We, physicians of Texas, can be very proud of Jay’s service and his commitment to the principles of physicians in the practice of medicine whether it be private practice, academic endeavors, group practice, multi-specialty groups, specialty or family practice. His experience in serving Texas physicians is why we need Dr. Jay Shah on the TMA board to continue his excellent service.

Dr. Tom Garcia
Past President, Texas Medical Association

I have worked with Jay Shah for many years at the Bexar County Medical Society, the Texas Medical Association, and the American Medical Association.

Jay shows up to meetings prepared and eager to engage in the dialogue. He is energetic and always ready to volunteer for tasks. I think the attribute that I most admire about Jay is his perseverance and persistence while dealing with issues. The practice of medicine has changed significantly during the past several years, and recently, we have seen additional dramatic social changes due to the pandemic. In this environment, we need a leader who carefully examines issues and looks for potential solutions. But Jay will even go a step further and analyze the responses to the proposed solution, adjust, if necessary, or propose new strategies. Especially now, the Board of Trustees needs strong leadership and Jay brings tenacity, energy combined with his dedication to physicians and the patients they serve.

Jay also brings diversity and business training to the physicians and patient of Texas through his service on the TMA Board of Trustees. He recently completed an MBA and has previously served as president of the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin.

I urge you to support and vote for Jay for re-election to the TMA Board of Trustees.
