Our new flu scheduler is now available for appointments. Schedule your appointment today!

Welcome to Dowd Medical Associates

Thank you for visiting Dowd Medical Associates web site. Dowd Medical Associates is a medical practice that includes a pediatrics division and a gynecology division.

We have two offices with pediatrics located at 107 Woburn Street, the original Dowd building, and Gyn now located around the corner at the new 2 Haven Street building.

The practice was started more than 40 years ago by a husband and wife team of doctors, the Dowds. Thomas Dowd was an obstetrician and Barbara Dowd was a pediatrician. While the Dowds retired many years ago, their tradition of practicing excellent medicine with an emphasis on respect and compassion for their patients continues today.

Our hope is that this web site will provide useful information for those looking for a new doctor as well as for those patients who are already a part of the Dowd Medical group. Please call our office anytime with questions that are not answered here; 781-944-4250 for pediatrics and 781-944-6249 for Gyn.

It is with great sadness that we note the passing of our dear friend and loyal co-worker, Eileen Kirby.

Eileen worked at Dowd Medical for 26 years and while she was known as Dr. Rashba’s nurse, she cared for so many of our families over those years. Her compassion, her ability to connect with patients of all ages and stages, her gentle demeanor, and her generous sharing of stickers will all be sorely missed.
