I like the doctor and have had good experiences with him. However, his billing department has been extremely slow to refund my co-pays. I received Medicaid in January, had procedures and appointments in Nov and Dec 2915 and am still waiting for my co pays back. I even had to call Medicaid and check on 2 dates of service, only to fing they had never been filed.

I have a genetic predisposition for cancer. My father died from one of these cancers. Dr. Ibegbu always goes to great lengths to make sure I have peace of mind. If every other factor was exactly the same as another doctor, I would still choose him because he shows me so much compassion. Once, after an in office procedure, I had severe pain that was very unusual and not experienced by his other patients after this procedure. Even so, he saw me late in the evening to make sure I was ok.

I had a completely awful experience with this doctor. Every appointment I had scheduled months in advance, I would have to wait AT LEAST an hour and a half to see the doctor. They were always WAY overbooked. Also their office was so tiny and there were not enough seats. I had broken my back and had to sit outside on the curb. Then after hours of waiting...I would get called back only to see the doctor for 5 minutes. He never spent any time with me and didn't seem to care for me as a patient.
