“After a year of searching for a “clinically excellent doctor”, a friend recommended Dr. Beg and she is AMAZING! She is wonderful for so many reasons! She takes her time & really listens. She considers what you are saying and uses it in the treatment plan. You can tell she really cares about her patients and that means the world to me. I see her for management of RA & am so happy I found her!” – Review from Google
“I would like to take a moment and personally recommend Dr. Beg as a wonderful RA physician. I have had 4 doctors since being diagnosed with RA almost 20 years ago and Dr. Beg is definitely on top of her game! Not only is she very knowledgeable in her field, she has a very calm and pleasant demeanor, with one of her strengths being a very good Listener. I feel that she gives her patients whatever time is needed to address concerns without feeling rushed, and that she truly cares.” – Review from Google
