Update on COVID-19 (coronavirus) for Our Patients

The State of New Mexico Public Health Emergency Order (March 24, 2020) has restricted non-essential health care services. We anticipate release of these restrictions on May 1, 2020.

In accordance with this order, Gallien Physical Therapy is open by appointment only for ESSENTIAL SERVICES as outlined by this order.

Gallien Speech and Occupational Therapy is offering telemed sessions until this crisis has passed.

If you have questions or have a physician referral for therapy services, please call our office at 575-437-1967. Our front desk specialist is working from home but will return your call within the business day.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate these turbulent times.

Wishing you health and happiness,
Pam Gallien, MS, CCC/SLP
