I've been seeing Dr Begovic for over 10 years and always had excellent care. She has always been warm and friendly to me and more importantly, because I have crappy insurance that doesn't pay for much, she allows me to decide the level of care and the number of tests I can afford. She has helped me to be healthier in many ways and I am very grateful to her. I don't know why there are so many one star reviews in a row but I suspect it's the same person using multiple accounts
San Diego |
Rude and bad attitude, wouldn't return.
Doctor seemed uninterested in helping me or listening to my concerns. Not recommend

I Received bad quality care from Dr Begoiv. Scripps has Gone downhill. Dr was rude and didn't listen to me or go over the history of my chart. Ashamed scripps hired this Phsyician who won't even review chart or pay attention.

The best part of moving to the Del Mar- Solana Beach area was having access to Scripps and signing up with Dr. Vedka Begovich. My husband attended one of my appointments with me and shortly thereafter he changed from his then current doctor to Dr. Begovic. We are so happy and healthy with Dr. Begovic in our lives.

Dr. Begovic is an excellent doctor. She is a good listener, thorough and provides sound diagnoses.
in San Diego |
This Phsyican is very cold , doesn't know really what she is doing. She seems on edge and isn't friendly. Unfortunately she isn't up to par on today's medicine which is something that is important to receiving quality care - this woman is not a good Doctor. John E.
