"We have been with the Northwell family since our children were born. Always a good experience and always recommend them to other parents. However, Dr. Begum does not uphold the Northwell values. She was dismissive, no explanation, saw my child only for a few minutes, disregarded prior medical records on care because she does things differently (never met my child before) displayed poor listening skills, was impatient, rude and extremely poor bedside manner. She just graduated. Perhaps she needs time to mature and develop more empathy and a few trainings…. If not, this is not the career for her. "
