About Us

Our Story

Rio Grande Foot & Ankle Specialists was started in 2019 by Dr Michelle Deithloff and her business partners when previous practices for which she worked left the area. She did not want to give up on her patients, her employees, or the northern New Mexico community, so she worked to establish a new practice dedicated to compassionate and competent patient care. Dr Deithloff and many of our other employees have been working in the podiatry field in northern New Mexico for many years. Rio Grande Foot & Ankle Specialists has since expanded to include additional doctors to serve you better.
