Biography

Dr. Avila is originally from Mexico and received her medical degree at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

She is excited to come back to UT Southwestern as faculty and to start her practice in Dallas. Her clinical interests include musculoskeletal disorders, headaches, chronic wound management, and integrative medicine. Besides practicing medicine, Dr. Avila enjoys spending time with her family, reading, and running.
