Perhaps he is a fine enough doctor for an easy pregnancy. However, if it's a complicated pregnancy, that's a different story. He took a week to refer me to a specialist. He discounted my symptoms, when they should have been a red flag. He wouldn't prescribe diagnostic tests for a month. Then the test was positive. He took personal phone calls while giving me a serious diagnosis. He didn't tell me what to watch for in case of an emergency. When in an emergency, he sent a different doctor.

Dr.Behan is one of the nicest doctors you will ever meet. He really cares about his patients and has a way of making you feel that everything is going to be fine. He is reassuring and makes you feel at ease. He has delivered both of my children and I wouldnt have had it any other way. One of the best at what he does Definitely recommend him!

I have been seeing Dr Behan for almost 15 years and would never think of seeing another Dr! He has vast knowledge in his field, actually listens to his patients, makes jokes to help calm you, looks to natural remedies before handing out a script, best of all he really does care about his patients. I remember when I lost my pregnancies, I could see in his face that he felt my pain. Not many Dr's will do this, but he will. It is refreshing to see the importance of family in his practice.
