Welcome to Our Practice
“Delivering a Personalized Experience to Care for Over 25 Years”


Althera Alternative Care is a membership-based, concierge primary care practice that features a unique blend of complimentary medical therapies, centered upon services typically unavailable at a standard primary care medical practice. We place an emphasis on integrative medicine and enhancing the body’s own ability to heal itself through targeted personalized treatments specific to each individual patient’s needs.

Our clinical offerings include a thoughtful array of curated nutraceuticals (vitamins and herbal remedies), IV and peptides therapies, and evidence-based medical procedures such as joint injections, pelleted hormone replacement therapies and a variety of cosmetic procedures, all intended to optimize wellness and longevity – both inside and out.

If you’re frustrated by the same old, assembly-line style of medicine, and disappointed by brief appointments with medical providers who rush you out the door, we’d like to introduce you to something different.

We are committed to diversity, inclusion, and social justice. We welcome patients of any race, color, creed, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Like I said before, Todd and his staff are amazing! They went above and beyond this time. Todd personally brought my paperwork to Santa Fe... for me to sign, since I couldn't get to Albuquerque during business hours. He also brought with him a CBD relief stick that they had recommended for my back, it works amazing by the way!

Concierge Medicine
Direct Primary Care

Direct primary care is a financial arrangement made directly between a patient and healthcare provider. It cuts the insurance providers out of the process, erasing the need for patients and providers alike to file health insurance claims.

Patients who use direct primary care don’t pay monthly health insurance premiums or copays. Instead, they pay their healthcare provider a monthly fee.
