Dr. Ulteig was very informative upon my initial visit. I was . a little disappointed after my colonoscopy to hear I had Diverticulitis and wasn’t offered any information on how to manage it or how bad it was just “eat whatever diet you choose”. Not very helpful information.
My experience with this Doctor was amazing. She explained everything with me about the procedure.
My consult visit with Dr. Ulteig was very pleasant. The office staff is efficient and my wait was short.
Have had Dr Steinberg as my Gastroenterologist for years; great guy. Staff are always friendly and helpful. If there’s anything that needs work it’s their communication system, which I understand they are transitioning to a new system now. Very much recommend them!
Pleasant staff. Minimal wait time and Doctor was great.

A colonoscopy is the best way to detect and prevent cancer before it reaches critical stages. Our Wellington and Jupiter gastroenterologists perform colonoscopies that can identify over 95 percent of precancerous polyps. The polyps get removed during the procedure as part of the treatment. After the colonoscopy, the polyp tissue samples are sent to pathology to specify if cancerous cells are present. Colonoscopies are conclusive treatments that serve as a preventative measure to benefit your GI health by eliminating any problem polyps before they progress into a critical stage. This is why a colonoscopy is considered the gold standard for the detection and prevention of colorectal cancer.
The standard and most common types of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. These diseases affect around 1.6 million Americans, with many receiving a diagnosis before 35 years of age. IBD is a chronic condition. This means it can be maintained and treated but not cured. Every year around 70,000 new cases are identified in both children and adults.
