Dr. Bega is an excellent Dr. when I came in I was very sick and Dr. Bega helped my daughter and I get to the emergency room to be taken care of by the right department. I was having problems for a few months and he always took time to talk to my daughter and lead us in the right direction.

Dr. Bega is absolutely amazing. He has been incredibly thorough and explains my condition (which has been extremely distressing and confusing to me) in a way that I can understand. He answers all my questions clearly and gives me a very clear timeline regarding my treatment. He is also very knowledgeable and makes sure to check all the boxes regarding a diagnosis.

Dr. Bega has an exceptional "bedside" manner. One feels secure and "taken care of" almost from the moment he arrives. He is a "listener". Unfortunately,he is not the neurologist that I need. After running the tests, he was able to rule out his ability to help me get my problems solved. He gave me an idea where testing and treatment would be heading. My professional years were spent as a vocal communications consultant. This young man has communications gifts that complement his professional skills unusually well. His manner puts the patient at ease very quickly.
