Texas Diabetes and Endocrinology is thrilled to welcome Dr. Kajal Shah to our team of experts in endocrinology. Dr. Shah’s major areas of interests are thyroid and adrenal gland pathology.
Born and raised in India, she went to Medical College, Baroda and then moved to the United States for her residency. She completed her Internal Medicine Residency at Northwell Health in New York, where she was in the brunt of COVID-19 pandemic and responsible for independently managing several critical patients. During her training, Dr. Shah became interested in endocrinology and moved to Long Island, New York to complete her endocrinology fellowship at SUNY Stony Brook University.
“The best part about endocrinology is being able to maintain long term relationships with patients and helping not just the patient, but sometimes their entire family with small lifestyle changes,” Dr. Shah says. “It is a constantly evolving field that requires analytical thinking and decision making, which is quite evidence-based.”
When describing why she joined Texas Diabetes and Endocrinology, Dr. Shah says she was impressed by the like-minded doctors and staff and felt she would fit right in.
“Texas Diabetes is a large group practice with ample opportunities for robust clinical experience, clinical trial-based research and leadership,” explains Dr. Shah.
Dr. Shah is a member of the Endocrine Society, American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, and the American College of Physicians. Outside of work, Dr. Shah enjoys traveling, swimming, and cooking. She moved to Austin to be closer to her family and is excited to explore the greater Austin area!
