Currently, she works as a pediatrician at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates in Medford Mass while also serving as Chief of weekend Pediatric Urgent Care.
Dr. Colpoy has always enjoyed working in a collaborative practice and that is what is most appealing about ICCD. Over her career she has provided care for many children with complex physical, educational, developmental and emotional needs. Dr. Colpoys sees the increasing need for comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis. It is often difficult as a pediatrician to spend enough time and to coordinate the many services that each child may need. The team at ICCD provides families with that integration.

She especially enjoys working with a diverse patient population.
When not working Mary enjoys spending time with friends and family and the many cultural and sporting events that the area offers. Traveling, sailing, swimming and gardening are special interests as well.
