Jignesh P. Shah, MD Gastroenterologist, Houston, Nassau Bay, Webster, Pasadena, Pearland, TX

“I have always wanted to be of assistance, to help others. Healthcare offered me a great opportunity to do this and have a direct and significant impact on the quality of life for individuals and families. And I found that a career as a gastrointestinal specialist was a natural choice.

“It is fulfilling to be able to improve people’s lives by managing and resolving a diverse set of problems by using the most appropriate and effective of a wide range of potential treatments. And for me, the keys to doing this to the highest standard are compassion, kindness and total commitment to excellence.”
