I had high hopes for Dr. Meckstroth based on the reviews I read. Unfortunately, my experience with him was the worst experience with a doctor I have ever had. It seemed that he had decided what my cause of issues were based on one test before even letting me explain my symptoms. After TELLING me what I feeling he proceeded to pick me apart personally. This is a very closed minded and discriminatory doctor, do right by yourself and do not waste your time or self respect.

When my wife and I relocated full time in the Fall of 2019 I was in need of establishing care with a gastroenterologist. Dr. Meckstroth was recommended to me be my former oncologist. I have found with my contacts that his care is excellent. He is effectively treated my autoimmune disorder and his doctor/patient communication is excellent. His nurse Carol has been great. She is very responsive and attentive to my needs. Her communication. In hindsight, I could not have made a better choice of a doctor and nurse!

Horrible and horrible experience with office staff. I had a routine colonoscopy. During the visit I told the Dr. I had stomach issues and getting my gallbladder removed. He billed my insurance as though I was seeing him for stomach issues. His office refused to recode the visit and sent me to collections. The nurse said "you can take us to court to resolve this issue". Horrible experience, stay far away from Gastroenterology Specialists and this quack PA. I saw a lot seniors in this waiting room and I have to wonder how many give up and just pay their erroneous bills.

I have a HORRIFIC GI history (start with C.diff 4 times). I was really scared when I moved to Naples 5 years ago. Dr Meckstroth and his Nurse Practictioner, Karina have saved my life several times while avoiding surgery or a bag. When I see Karina, who is amazing (yes, emails, texts and calls on the weekend), Dr Meckstroth is aware of everything. If I have ever sat for an hour waiting, I would not care because 1. They are the best 2. They are late because they took EXTRA time with someone, like they will with you. To me, it makes no difference HOW their office works, I am not a Dr. All I care about is what kind of actual medical care I get and here you will get the best!

While having a colonoscopy is not something one looks forward to, Dr Meckstroth and staff made this as good an experience as one could have. Everyone I dealt with that day was so kind, professional, and caring. It was truly a great experience and I highly recommend this wonderful staff. My husband will be going soon and I expect another smooth and positive experience for him.

I am very thankful to have met Dr. Steven Meckstrath. His office and PA very helpful, the procedure center excellent in every way, and Dr. Meckstroth called me personally with the lab reports. I was given very helpful educational sheets on 3 GI issues with symptoms, risk factors and treatment. I have never had this information from 2 groups in Ohio--I give him a 5 and would not to hesitate to recomend him to friends.

Horrible experience, he refused to refund my consultation fee for a colonoscopy that he would not provide to me. The worst experience I have ever had, he is a disgrace to the medical profession.

Dr. Meckstroth has an excellent bed-side manner, an excellent staff and is a very caring doctor. I have gone to him for over 15 years and have had numerous colonoscopies and have been very satisfied with all. Notice I said "satisfied" but that is as positive a comment that I can use for a colonoscopy. :-) Seriously, the colonoscopy procedures have been very easy, it's the prep that I don't look forward to. Dr. Meckstroth is very comforting in this otherwise very uncomfortable procedure.

I think Dr Meckstroth is an excellent gastroenterologist and a very nice person. He is an extremely busy Dr and spends most of his time doing procedures however he has an excellent Physicians Assistant who sees a lot of his patients . He has a well run office and the staff is very nice and efficient.

Dr. Meckstroth really cares about patients. He offers a reduced rate for patients without insurance or high deductible plans. He provides the best price on endoscopies that I have found in either Lee or Collier County. As a primary care physician, I recommend him to my patients.

What experience? I had been to his office 5-6 times in the past year or so and never met him. I recently had a colonoscopy and I met him (are you ready to go?) for 10 seconds before being "put under". After the surgery, he was supposed to come out and talk about the results. I waited over a half hour sitting in a chair and he never came. Finally, I got up and left. Not a good experience, although his staff is very efficient. You have to leave a message to make an office appt.
