“We are [our patients’] stewards, and they are our partners, and we can succeed only if we are kept always vigilant of that fact,” he said upon reelection in 2021.  

“Required of us is leadership, dedication, honesty, and an unwavering belief that we can never give up the ability to do what is in the patient’s and the physician’s best interest.”

Outside of TMA, Dr. Valenti served on the American Medical Association Resident and Fellow Section Governing Council, and as president of the Denton County Medical Society. He continues to serve in the TMA house, and on the boards of the Texas Medical Liability Trust and The Physicians Foundation.  

Dr. Valenti founded the Caring for Women medical practice in Denton, where he has served patients for more than two decades. He also was chief of staff of North Texas Hospital, a physician-owned facility.
