    Dr. Angel Marcelo Rodriguez-Chevrez


    The science of psychiatric medicine has changed greatly over the last several decades. Research and clinical advances have greatly improved the lives of those with mental illness.

    In El Paso, few have been as instrumental in ushering these changes to our community as Dr. Marcelo Rodriguez-Chevrez. Dr. Rodriguez is currently a Chief Medical Officer for Emergence Health Network in El Paso. His specialization in Children, Adult, and Forensic Psychiatry is invaluable to the operations at EGHN, which is the Local Mental Health Authority in the region.  He finished medical school, and he did an internship in Columbia, NC, where fellow musicians suggested moving to El Paso where the bicultural nature made him feel at home instantly.
