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.

Was absolutely the best experience I've ever had with a doctor. Very caring in making sure I wasn't too uncomfortable and also got the job done correctly the first time.
