Welcome! Are you in need of a new PCP? Great! We're here to help. We are affiliated with MDVIP and work with most insurance companies, offering services that surpass the norm.  Please note that this program requires an annual membership fee, but you'll soon see how we stand out from traditional primary care offices.

MDVIP was originally established in 2000, the network now spans 44 states, comprising 1,100 primary care physicians dedicated to making a difference one patient at a time. Corrales Family Practice partnered with MDVIP in August 2012, a decision for which we are forever grateful. MDVIP enables Dr. Thal to practice in a way that fosters longevity, promotes a healthy patient-physician relationship, and facilitates earlier disease identification for life-saving diagnoses.

We want your interaction with our office to be different from the start. We value you as a person, we see you as a whole, and we care about your wellbeing.
