I have been going to IPS, first seeing Dr. Fuke who no longer sees patients, then transferred to Dr. Uzo. However in the 3 years I have gone I have only seen a physician maybe 4 times and still never personally even seen Dr. Uzo, only the PA. Never has any actually spent more than 5 min with me due to always running late. I have now can barely walk and find out my main problem is not what they have even been me for. This is likely due to their lack of listening to my new/worse symptoms

Dr. Uzodinma is an awesome doctor, I would recommend him to anyone, but would warn them about making/changing/cancelling appointments. The problem I have is trying to contact his office in Webster. I have to call the Pasadena office (which is the only number you will find listed for them) and they do not pass on messages. I have been charged $25 for not showing up to an appointment that I tried to reschedule but got no call back from either the Webster or Pasadena office.
