Henry Garcia

Career Story: 

After completing residency I worked in Deming NM for three years to fulfill my National Health Service obligation. I then returned to Tucson and worked for seven years before moving back to my home town of Albuquerque, NM in 1992. Over the past 18 years I have worked as a staff family physician for a local HMO followed by three years of private practice (High Desert Medical Associates). I returned to a staff position for a large medical group. During this time, I also served as a medical director of a local hospice. Four years ago I returned to private practice in Rio Rancho, NM. I contracted for office space of 3400 sq ft. As my practice grew I was able to hire a family nurse practitioner. My practice is still growing and I have a staff of 8. We are currently implementing the electronic medical record. Retirement is several years away as I continue to enjoy the practice of medicine in this setting. My business address is Henry A. Garcia M.D. P.C. 2220 Grande Blvd. SE , Suite A, Rio Rancho, NM 87124. 505- 892-9800
