Three Austin Doctors Elected to Represent Texas at AMA

May 19, 2018

Two Austin physicians were reelected today – and a third was elected for her first term – to represent Texas physicians in the American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates, the national organization’s policymaking body. The Texas Medical Association (TMA) House of Delegates elected the physician leaders in San Antonio during TexMed, TMA’s annual conference.

Michelle A. Berger, MD, an ophthalmologist in practice for 33 years, was reelected to serve as an AMA delegate.

David C. Fleeger, MD, a board-certified colon and rectal surgeon in practice for 27 years, was reelected to serve as an AMA delegate.

Myphuong T. (Theresa) Phan, MD, a family physician in residency training, was elected as an alternate delegate.

As part of the TMA state delegation to AMA, these physicians help make policy recommendations to the national body on behalf of Texas doctors.

All three physicians are members of the Travis County Medical Society.

Both Dr. Berger and Dr. Fleeger serve on TMA’s Board of Trustees. The TMA House also elected Dr. Fleeger to become TMA’s president-elect today.

TMA is the largest state medical society in the nation, representing more than 51,000 physician and medical student members. It is located in Austin and has 110 component county medical societies around the state. TMA’s key objective since 1853 is to improve the health of all Texans.
