Alejandro (Alex) Nuñez is a licensed RN. He began working at Contour Dermatology in 2018 and has held four positions since joining the practice, including receptionist, medical assistant, medical biller, and his current position as a nurse. He is an excellent example of Contour’s mentoring and promoting from within.

Alex earned his RN degree from Cal State San Bernardino in December 2021 after transferring from College of the Desert for his prerequisites. He began attending COD in high school through the Dual Enrollment program and said, “COD had some of the best professors I’ve ever had. Our local community college played a prominent role in helping me be where I am in my career today.”

Alex obtained his RN license in January 2022. He is currently working toward achieving a family nurse practitioner (FNP) degree.

A former ASB president, high school athlete, and graduation speaker of the first graduating class of Rancho Mirage High School, Alex is internally driven and knew his path was medical. His older sister shares his interest in medicine and is currently an LVN at Desert Regional, working toward her RN degree.

Alex’s primary responsibilities at Contour Dermatology are to perform laser treatments and minor procedures such as Profound and Dermapen. He also assists Dr. Jochen with suture removal and cosmetic follow-ups to ensure the patient is healing well.

Alex’s attitude toward lasers is one of healthy respect. Of Hispanic ethnicity, he has a particular interest in treating patients with darker skin types, which requires careful patient selection and controlled use of cosmetic lasers. “Lasers are never to be “comfortable with” – confident in using them, yes, but cautious. I respect them,” he said.

Having some residual pigmentation from high school acne, Alex has had an IPL, Sublative, and has tried Botox and fillers. “It’s one thing to recommend procedures that will help people, and it’s even better if you’ve experienced them,” he said.

What Alex likes most about his work at Contour is seeing patient results. “Sometimes, I get more excited than the people receiving the treatments. I was born with an eye for esthetics. I love helping people fix little things that make a world of difference for them.”

Even when he’s not working, Alex shares his gift of caring for people by volunteering when he can with the Street Medicine outreach program of Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine. He enjoys working out daily, baking, and is an avid reader with a hefty “to read list” of about 339 books!
