Jorge Avila, M.D. I am a bi-lingual, board-certified psychiatrist. I
am board-certified in General Adult Psychiatry, Child Adolescent
Psychiatry, and Addiction Medicine.
I am a native of El Paso, TX who graduated from Cathedral High
School. My undergraduate Biological Sciences degree is from the
University of Chicago in Chicago, IL. I studied medicine in a bi-
lingual setting at Universidad Central Del Caribe, in Bayamon,
Puerto Rico. I did two years of post-graduate residency training at
the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA and
completed internal medicine at the University of Florida in
Gainesville, FL. I then completed the University of Florida’s
General Psychiatry residency and fellowships in Addiction
Medicine and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. After two years as
a Clinical Assistant Professor with the University of Florida’s
Department of Psychiatry, I returned to El Paso to be near my
family and to serve my community.
Since returning to El Paso I have served as a Staff Psychiatrist for
the local Mental Health Authority and a served in Medical
Directorship for a local mental health hospitals’ Dual Diagnosis/
Rehabilitation/Detoxification Unit and have also participated in a
collaborative tele-psychiatry practice.
At AVILA PSYCHIATRY we care for the whole person by taking a
delicate, hands-on approach to mental health. We strive to care
for the biological, psychological, social and spiritual (from a 12-
step perspective) aspects of the human person. Our integrated
model of care approaches treatment from diverse perspectives:
the well-being of the patient, family dynamics, traditional
medication management, and therapeutic modalities or referrals.
