Rio Grande Dermatology is committed to your health and the safety of our community during this pandemic. We have updated our practice to include virtual appointments (also known as teledermatology) and have implemented all state and CDC recommendations.
Our clinic is now open for routine appointments.
If you require a virtual appointment, or aren't sure, please email [email protected], or call 505-896-2900.
If you require an in-person appointment, please email [email protected], or call 505-896-2900.
We ask that patients enter the clinic right at his or her appointment time. Patients may also text 505-896-2900 if he or she arrives early, to see if we can accommodate and earlier entry. Patients will be escorted directly to an exam room after checking in at the front desk.
All persons entering our clinic (including patients, staff and providers) will have a temperature check prior to entry. Temperatures greater than 100 degrees Farenheit will be asked to reschedule at least two weeks out.
Patients who are sick, have, or have recently had, a fever, cough or have traveled within the last two weeks will not be seen.
