Dr. Steven Ikenberry will celebrate his 20th anniversary with RGA next year. He joined the practice in 2000 and trained at the internationally recognized GI department at Indiana University.
At RGA, he has developed a subspeciality of treating patients with IBD, including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and he's passionate about colon cancer screening and prevention: "The ultimate goal and the beautiful thing is when we do our job right, there is less colon cancer in the world. That means someone doesn't have to go through the heartache of a diagnosis or treatment such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiation."

Congratulations to you Dr Ikenberry !!!!
Dr. Ike berry is my doctor I just love him.
I worked with RGA for 20 years. Dr Ikenberry, as well as all the physicians were a nurses dream come true. As nurses we did not work for the doctors but with the doctors. It was a collaborative effort. They all have the utmost respect from me.
Sorry I don't share in every else's opinion. I ended up at UW MADISON because I was told to take antidepressants. I had poor bloodwork and nobody told me for three weeks. Ended up with very bad gut infection and needed iron infusions.
Very good dr
Very good doctors are at this clinic.
Congratulations Dr. Ikenberry on your twenty years with RGA. You were always great to work with in the ICU at Swedes.
