About Margarita Alonso, M.D.

My name is Margarita Alonso. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I obtained my medical degree from the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine in 1989. I completed my adult psychiatry residency and a fellowship in psychopharmacology at the University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine in 1992.

Afterwards, I spent two years at the Red Rock community mental health clinic in Oklahoma City. This was an outpatient clinic responsible for the psychiatric care of chronically, severely ill patients. In 1996, I moved to San Francisco and worked for a year at the San Francisco General Hospital in the African-American inpatient unit. A year later, I went back to Puerto Rico where I worked in private practice for five years.

In 2002, I moved to San Diego and joined PsyCare. I believe the diversity of my personal and professional experiences has helped me become a better psychiatrist.
