I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Jay Shah for many years at the Bexar County Medical Society, the Texas Medical Association, and the American Medical Association.

Jay is a passionate, eager, and avid advocate for our profession.  Jay’s strong business acumen and organizational leadership have been an asset to TMA Board of Trustees for the past several years. Having an MBA, Jay understands the “business of medicine” as well as the “practice of medicine”, and Jay always advocates for quality health care. Jay has proven his passion for our profession at all levels by being an active and renown spokesperson in local (BCMS), state (TMA), and national (AMA) organizations. His past service as President of the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin, as President of Bexar County Medical Society. and as President of the State Chapter TIPS SW chapter have proven he is the best candidate for TMA President Elect.

Jay always comes to meetings prepared and eager to engage in the dialogue. He is energetic and always ready to volunteer for tasks. I think the attributes that I most admire about Jay is his ability to build consensus and his perseverance and persistence while dealing with issues. The practice of medicine has changed significantly during the past several years. We need a leader who carefully examines issues and looks for all potential solutions, develops consensus, and will work to execute the solution.  Especially now, the Board of Trustees needs strong leadership and Jay brings tenacity and energy combined with dedication to physicians and patients.

Dr. Shah will make a great presidents for TODAY’s TMA. I first came to know Jay well when he beat me out for alternate AMA delegate about 10 years ago. While that disappointed me, it was a great win for TMA as he has become an integral part of the GREAT Texas delegation. (I was fortunate to get a spot on the ACOG delegation, so it worked our well for both of us)

Jay is thoughtful, kind, compassionate and dedicated. He works hard to stay on top of policy matters and brings a fantastic perspective to his work.

He has cared for a family member and he is always anxious to help.

Let’s elect Jayesh Shah to the office of President-Elect.

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Dr. Jayesh Shah in various capacities over the years within the Texas Medical Association (TMA). Notably, we’ve served together on the TMA delegation to the American Medical Association (AMA), where his insights and guidance have been invaluable.

One of Dr. Shah’s most admirable qualities is his commitment to education and mentorship. His personal journey and achievements at Trinity University greatly influenced my own decision to enroll in the same program. He took the time to share his experiences and provide advice, showing a genuine interest in my future and success. His mentorship has not only been instrumental in my academic journey, but it has also significantly impacted my professional growth.

In our shared duties within the TMA and AMA, I have always been impressed by Dr. Shah’s ability to navigate complex scenarios with ease and clarity. He possesses a deep understanding of the inner workings of the AMA and is always willing to share this knowledge to benefit the team and the broader community.

Dr. Shah embodies the spirit of service, showing great dedication to his colleagues, his profession, and the medical community at large. His commitment to excellence, coupled with his personal integrity and leadership qualities, sets a high bar for all who work alongside him.

Given his outstanding professional competencies, personal qualities, and the profound impact he’s had on those around him, I am thrilled to support Dr. Shah’s campaign for President-Elect of the TMA. His leadership would undoubtedly propel our association and the healthcare community at large toward a promising future.

I recommend Dr. Jayesh Shah without reservation and look forward to his continued contributions and leadership in his role as President-Elect of the TMA.
