Patient Comments (2)
in Elmwood Park, IL |
Dr. Begum has been my physician for over ten years and has helped me on my path to health. To me, she is like family.
in Chicago, IL |
First of all, the staff is very professional and caring. Customer service is very important to me and it shows through these amazing women (Rebecca/Janette). My Dr. Begum takes her time and really listens and cares about her patients. The only way I would ever leave her is - if I move out of state. Great bedside manners, professional, friendly, caring, extremely nice! I would highly recommend her to my close family and friends. I love Dr. Begum!
