Dowd Medical Associates

Thanks for visiting us at the Reading Fall Street Faire!

Dowd Pediatrics hosted a table at the Reading Fall Street Faire on Sunday, September 9th, from 12-5pm. So many patients and new friends stopped by to chat with some of our team members, learn more about our practice, and grab some tips and treats while enjoying this fun fall town event!

Thanks again for your support.  You can check out our banner hanging over the front door of the office and see the awesome duck stamp artwork in the check-in area at the office!Screen-Shot-2018-09-03-at-10.16.44-PM.png#asset:385
