I would give 10 stars, if I could! I first wanted to say that Dr. Ibegbu is by far my favorite doctor EVER! He is the friendliest and funniest! He loves to tell jokes and make you laugh. He is so knowledgeable with his craft and I feel lucky to have found him. I had ESG and I can say if you are thinking about the procedure, go for it! I trust him completely! In one month, I have lost 19 pounds, and my acid reflux is GONE! I suffered horribly from it for years with this. I will recommend him to anyone that needs a doctor of this nature. He is top notch and I absolutely have no regrets with my decision of choosing Dr. Ibegbu as my doctor. Also, I see several reviews up here about his staff not being friendly. We just went through a pandemic and the staff is working to get in backlogged patients and new ones! Please bear in mind that they are working as hard as they can to ensure that each patient is handled with care and sensitivity. They are extremely busy and they are doing the absolute best that they can. Negative reviews for such a good doctor just does not settle right with me, and I wanted to take a moment to stand up for Dr. Ibegby and his staff. My thoughts and prayers are with this amazing doctor and his staff.
I’ve had both the Orbera balloon and then the subsequent ESG surgery permanently done. I am 5’3 and was about 225lbs at my heaviest before the balloon. I was going through a rough patch between a divorce and taking care of the kids. With my focus on the children and no help, I had a hard time taking care of myself. I put my kids first and worked to ensure their quality of life and education was maintained. My health started to deteriorate, which affected my weight and my back. I ended up becoming bed ridden on most days off from work from the pain of my weight. I thought taking this step would fix everything. You should know that this typically does not work as it takes both the surgery and a mind frame change for it to work. It was hard to acknowledge the reality of my situation at that time because I was in denial. I denied that food was a comfort and that my health was spiraling out of control because I painted a beautiful picture of my life to my friends, family and colleagues. Lose weight and avoid back surgery. I lost weight from the Orbera balloon WITHOUT exercising. I COULDN’T exercise because of my back pain even after the weight loss. In the end, I underwent a lower back spinal fusion surgery. Losing the weight in the beginning before the back surgery cut my recovery time in half and physical therapy was not as difficult as it could have been at my previous overweight circumstances. Looking back on it, I should have done ESG instead because it is essentially the same result as the Orbera balloon but more permanent. I was able to maintain the lifestyle with a drastic mind frame change because you can still EAT PAST the balloon and the ESG, defeating your purpose for the surgery, stretching your stomach and right back to where you were initially. The recovery was so easy and there was not any cutting involved. I am currently 127Lbs…and my quality of life and my children’s (because it directly affects them as well) has been changed for the best. Overall, Dr. Ibegbu and his staff were extremely accommodating, professional and made me feel like I was a human being instead of a number. They answered my questions, was patient, and was there each step of the way. You also work with a very patient, caring but honest and firm dietitian. I did interview other places, but Dr. Ibegbu and his staff were by far the kindest to me. That shows how personal they make you feel and comfortable. They provide the service but ultimately it is YOU that has to make sure that you are doing what you have to do to change your quality of life. I hope this very personal experience helps somebody. Invest in yourself, you deserve so much more.
I had a great experience with Dr.Ibegbu and his wonderful staff. I had an Endoscopy. Colonoscopy and a Bravo done. I was very nervous and scared because I had not had a Colonoscopy done in 7 years. I was amazed how Dr. Ibegbi and his staff answered all my questions and had an answer I could understand. I would definitly recommrnd Atlantic Medical group to my family and friends. Thank you Dr. Ibegbu and staff for being so compassionate and empathetic!
I’m active duty and was suddenly struggling with bowel issues, lots of pain and some weight gain out of nowhere. I was referred to Atlantic medical group for concern of family history issues. I had undergone weeks of tests and biopsies only to find out I had a simple diet fix due to a new intolerance to fructose. The pain is gone, the struggling is over, I’m shedding weight off in a proper healthy way. They have MANY different routes they will take to figure out what the issue is. Things take time.
I had an E.S.G. procedure in Jan. 2022, and it was the best decision I could have made. Dr. Ibegbu & his team was/is caring, polite, thoughtful & always available to help after the E.S.G. I knew I couldn’t have gastric sleeve surgery but the E.S.G. is a great choice. It’s a gastric sleeve without the full surgery. As of this date, I’ve lost 44 pounds. I’m healthier, happier & since I’m disabled, the weight loss is enabling me to move easier and with much less pain. Additionally, I found my gastric reflex has stopped. Before the E.S.G., even with medication, I had severe GERD. Since Jan. 2022, I’ve not had a single episode. Dr. Ibegbu is a kind, caring man who is dedicated to the health of his patients.
