Angela Rodriguez, M.D.

I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas (Go Spurs Go!). I graduated from St. George's University, School of Medicine, and enjoyed the beautiful Caribbean beaches and culture while studying medicine. I chose family medicine for the diversity of the specialty and the continuity of care that it allows for. My interests have always been broad and family medicine gives me the opportunity to not only treat the general adult population but take care of the entire family, encompassing all of their healthcare needs. DeTar was especially appealing to me due to the sense of family and camaraderie built among the residents, not to mention that it is an opposed program with many opportunities to learn in whatever area you’re interested in, all you have to do is ask! While I'm still figuring out my end goal, my overall goal is to be an excellent provider who is able to provide comprehensive care to all of my patients, make them feel empowered to take charge of their health and help them achieve and maintain their healthcare-related goals. I value kindness, honesty, commitment, and willingness to make an effort. My motto has always been "treat others the way you want to be treated" and I make an effort to do so every day.
