Get your personal medical records from DMC
Yesterday was a sad day, as Doctors Medical Center (DMC) in San Pablo closed. 

The closure of this facility makes it all the more important that the tens of thousands of residents who have used it for services obtain their medical records for use at their new health care providers. 

Medical records will be available to any patient requesting a copy.

Request your medical records by calling 510-970-5159.

After making the request, you'll be told when to pick up your records, free of charge, at DMC. 

For other questions about DMC or your ongoing health care needs, call 510-970-5991. 

As DMC's  closure became more likely, steps were taken to make sure everyone in West County has health care. Resources are available.
  • Contra Costa Health Services has compiled a detailed West County Health Care Resources Guide (click on link or see below),and a resource website, which includes information in several languages.
  • A new urgent care clinic has opened at LifeLong Medical Care, which is located across the street from Doctors, at 2023 Vale Road, San Pablo. The clinic is open noon to 8 p.m., seven days a week. 510-231-9800
  • Anyone without private insurance (Kaiser, Blue Cross, etc.) needing health advice is urged to call the County's free Advice Nurse Health Line as a starting point for getting services. The  line is 1-877-661-6230, option 1. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
