Dr. Lalani for Texas
In the early 90’s Dr. Lalani arrived in the United States to begin his medical career. He chose the United States because here is where the medicine was most advanced; here is where the greatest healthcare was provided because here was the world’s greatest nation. It was a shock to discover how inequitable the healthcare system was in the world’s greatest nation. The advancements and the high level of care were undeniable, but the access to the common citizen was shameful. Throughout his career, Dr. Lalani tried to shorten that gap through his own practice and charitable endeavors—always wanting to do more. Now, after decades of practice and thousands of patients, Dr. Lalani has decided to do more for his fellow Texans. Who better to advocate for the healthcare and betterment of a community than it’s trusted, physician.
