Rio Grande Family Medicine's Health Providers
Mohammad Al-Raie, P.A.
I am an El Paso, TX native that have lived in New Mexico with my wife and two dogs most of my adult life and consider it my home. I completed my undergraduate studies at NMSU in Biochemistry and continued my medical training at UNM School of Medicine in 2011. I’ve worked for under privileged communites/refugees at a UNM Hospital outpatient clinic. My interests are in Sports Medicine care and Family Practice…and of course, my patients. If you can’t catch me playing my guitar at an open mic nite at Brickyard Pizza or Monte Vista Firestation, then I’m probably riding my roadbike down Tramway or the Bosque Trails. Good Health To You!

Candace Henson-Percifull, MS, FNP-BC
I am a native of Arkansas and moved to Albuquerque in 2012. I received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2008 and a Master of Science in Nursing in 2011 at Arkansas State University. I am board certified in Family Medicine. I have experience in pediatrics, urology, and internal medicine. I am currently working toward becoming a certified diabetic educator. My approach to healthcare is that it is a dynamic process between the provider and patient; this process includes incorporating the patient’s beliefs, culture, and values into their plan of care.
