Transgender Health Clinic: Deseo


Return to Southeast Heights Clinic Main Page


Powerpoints on HT and Pubertal Blockade: NMAFP 2022 winter refresher.pptx.  pubertal blockade.summit 2022.pptx


Our clinic is a consult service only, we do not do primary care in Deseo as we want to keep the doors open for gender care given the dearth of available providers (especially for youth).  Either they can remain with their PCP, or we can get them established with other providers at SEH for primary care. 

If you are interested in referring people to the Deseo clinic, please reach out to molly mcclain in powerchart with the patient's chart information. 

Another alternative is to have your patient call 505-272-5885 and select the option to speak to someone in the clinic directly (NOT the schedule an appointment option), and then to ask to get scheduled in the Deseo Clinic.
