Patient Services

Here at Diablo Valley Primary Care, we are dedicated to providing you with superior and highly coordinated care for your complex and chronic medical problems.  Dr De Monteiro is an internist and is an expert in managing complex cases in our geriatric patients.  He is knowledgeable about all the specialists in the community and work very closely with them.  He is, thus, able to refer you to the right specialist for your particular medical issues.

Should you require hospitalization, Dr De Monteiro also does inpatient care at John Muir Concord Campus.  You can thus be sure that your doctor who knows you well will be there to manage every facet of your inpatient care.  We will also manage your care should you require skilled nursing home placement.  We are fully aware how daunting and disconcerting it can be for patients to be hospitalized and then transferred to a nursing home and not knowing the physicans caring for them.  For this reason, we believe that providing you with a continuity of care by being there for you during your time of needs is of the utmost importance to us as your physicians.

In our office, we employ the latest technology in electronic health records so that we can ensure not only efficient and well-coordinated care, but also patient privacy.  We utilizeMyJohnMuirHealth to provide our patients a means of online communication with our office.  Once you have registered online as a new user, you can use MyJohnMuirHealth to request appointment, request lab or test results, request prescription refills or referrals.
