Good Deeds is the name given to Digestive Disorders Associates & MDTEC’s community outreach and philanthropy program. Making a positive impact in people’s lives is at the core of our company values, and we have made it our mission to bring this outside of our practice doors and into our community. Throughout the year, stay tuned on our page to see upcoming events, giveaways, and/or promotions that you can participate in to help give back!
Recent MDTEC patients identified organizations to which we made contributions. A portion of the medical proceeds were donated to the patients’ chosen charities. We’d like to thank our patients for helping us give back on a local, state, and national level.

Throughout March, our employees from Annapolis Billing Services, Digestive Disorders Associates, Investigative Clinical Research, and MDTEC participated in the ACG Ride or Stride for 45. The challenge was to either exercise for 45 minutes per day, or total 45 miles of exercise throughout March. This virtual event was to show support and enthusiasm for preventing colorectal cancer by getting a screening beginning at age 45 for all average risk adults. Thank you to our employees for your support!
