I became a patient to Dr. Ikekpeazu in 2013. From the onset, I knew he was a rare jewel for a physician. Back then, as he is today, he was pleasant, patient, and professional. Dr. Ikekpeazu has performed multiple procedures on me and his attention to detail, and person to person care is appreciated. I can attest that his bedside manner is genuine. I have great respect for and trust in Dr. Ikekpeazu. He has set a high bar that I have yet to see any other treater reach.

Dr. Ikekpeazu was covering for the surgeon my husband had a hernia repair with & it was a Sat. morning he happened to be in his office even though his practice was closed for the day & was kind enough to save us an emergency room visit. He was wonderful & cared enough to even give us help if needed it the next day. Very good bedside manner!

Dr. Ikekpeazu was recommended by my PCP when I had to have an emergency appendectomy. After having him as my surgeon it was apparent why she had recommended him. He came to the campus I was at instead of having me transferred, had amazing bedside manners, caught another issue while performing the appendectomy and fix it, and he followed up with me in and out of the hospital. The level of care he provided was excellent. I would highly recommend him to all of my friends and family.
