Weather Announcement for Winter 2014:

The policy of Digestive Disease Associates and Berks Center for Digestive Health is to remain open to follow through with care of our patients. 

However, DDA and BCDH may close due to weather reports indicating driving conditions that are dangerous.  

The safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority. 

If we decide that driving conditions are hazardous, DDA and BCDH will notify patients via a phone call to re-schedule.
