Why Choose Us


As the premier gastroenterology and hepatology practice in North Naples we would like to welcome you to Gastroenterology Specialists of Southwest Florida, PA. , the offices of Steven Meckstroth, MD,  Manuel Bustamante, MD,  William Gonzalez, PA-C, and Karina Sejas, PA-C. We specialize in the treatment of diseases of the digestive system. Our dedicated team of health professionals performs diagnostic testing in gastroenterology, such as colonoscopy and upper endoscopy. We employ many modern techniques to diagnose and treat such conditions as celiac disease, colon cancer, hepatitis, heartburn or GERD, peptic ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. We are dedicated to preserving your digestive health and providing the advanced care every patient deserves. 


Our practice was established in 1998 and has grown to 4 gastroenterology providers in the ensuing years.  For our patients requiring hospitalization, we are on staff at Naples Community Hospital, both NCH downtown and North Collier, as well as the HMA hospitals, Physicians Regional Pine Ridge and Collier Regional. 


We also have privileges at Premier Endoscopy Center, the only outpatient facility that offers High Definition Scopes for use in your procedure.  High Definition scopes afford the endoscopist the ability to visualize small or flat polyps that many times cannot be seen with a regular scope.  This greater screening ability gives the patient the assurance that polyps which potentially could cause cancer are being caught at an earlier stage.


At Gastroenterology Specialists, we are committed to providing our patients with the most appropriate and cost-effective healthcare available in a comfortable and compassionate setting. Our staff is specially trained to coordinate patient care and ensure that all medical needs are met, making our practice the right choice for those with digestive problems.


Our doctors are Board Certified in Gastroenterology by the American Board of Internal Medicine, ensuring that they have met the rigorous training, testing and continuing education required by this organization.

Our office has bi-lingual providers and staff.  All of our forms are available in both English and Spanish to accommodate our patient’s needs.


Many of our patients come to us by referral from our local community of physicians; many of those physicians also refer their family members, as well as seeing us themselves for their own gastroenterology needs.  This is one of the highest recommendations a practice can receive.  We will strive to meet your expectations and deliver highly personalized medical care so that you too will want to refer patients to our practice.


Thank you for choosing Gastroenterology Specialists for your gastroenterology services and for placing your trust in our team of health professionals. Please feel free to contact our office staff at 239-593-6201 if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
