Acid reflux is a common gastroenterology condition that makes eating and drinking even the most innocent foods and drinks a gamble. Usually after eating, acidic stomach contents travel back into the esophagus and cause what is commonly referred to as acid indigestion. People who suffer from acid reflux find it harder to enjoy normal mealtimes, as well as social situations such as going out to bars or restaurants.

You should not suffer in silence if you have frequent episodes of acid reflux after eating or drinking. Dr. Yamini is a gastroenterologist who practices out of two offices in California, which are located in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills for patient convenience. The condition is treatable, so it is important to consult with Dr. Yamini for an official diagnosis and treatment options at his offices.

What are the Symptoms and Causes of Acid Reflux?

The symptoms of acid reflux may include bloating, the sensation of food stuck in the throat or pains in the lower part of the chest after eating or drinking. The condition may arise from a stomach abnormality such as a hiatal hernia. Obesity or certain foods and drinks may also trigger the condition. Acid reflux has similar symptoms to other gastrointestinal conditions, so it is important to pursue a diagnosis in any case.

Treatment options will depend on the severity of your acid reflux and the underlying causes. In many instances, a secondary condition is diagnosed and treated, with the result of reducing or eliminating the symptoms of acid reflux.

Dr. Yamini is well positioned in California to provide diagnosis, prevention and treatment of acid reflux and related conditions. If you are experiencing the symptoms of acid indigestion and want to find relief from pain and discomfort after eating, reach out to the offices of Dr. Yamini today.

Scheduling was extremely easy with Dr. Yamini's staff, I scheduled my Tuesday appointment on Monday afternoon. The staff and Dr. Yamini were courteous and straightforward - even with new patient paperwork I was out the door within an hour!

Dr. Yamini definitely is a great doctor who is very thorough and detail oriented with his diagnosis. He is very passionate about what he does and was able to answer any question or concern. He took his time before my appointment to look through all the documentation to know exactly what was going on. He definitely was able to put me at ease even though I was very worried. I am very satisfied with his services. Thanks!

Mario O.

He was very gentle about my situation yet did not fail to emphasize about the seriousness that could arise from gastrointestinal problems. Few and far between are as professional and caring as Dr. Yamini and his staff. I was 20 minutes late on Friday evening & they still had me in a room in 5 minutes as a new patient.

I can’t say enough great things about my first impression of this doctor and his amazing staff! They got me right in and set me up for everything needed. I’ve been looking for the right GI doctor for years having had a very negative experience with another doctor years ago. Dr. Yamini is not only professional, knowledgeable, respectful, and experienced... this guy is “cool” and nice too! His front desk person, Toni was amazing! She was kind, bright, efficient, patient, and positive! ??

Makes talking about uncomfortable subjects a breeze. Competent and honest: doesn't sell vitamin cleanses and his own probiotics or anything like that. Makes sure your symptoms aren't half-fixed but fully fixed. Gets to the heart of the issue quickly. Good listener. Very sweet receptionist. I hate receiving many phone calls, and she's persistent about making sure you set up an appointment; it was stressing me out. I found the her much easier to connect with once she gave me her cell and said to text.

Thank you Dr. Yamini and Tony. When it comes to patient care and professionalism, I have never received this much care and attention from a physician and the staff. I was able to talk to Dr. Yamini for good period of time allowing me to ask all my questions. Tony you are so cute thank you for scheduling me in last minute.

Kyle K.

I highly recommend Dr. Yamini. He's very personable and actually listens to your issues and concerns, then recommends a reasonable course of action. He was able to properly diagnose my symptoms and get me healthy again. Also his admin Toni is great too, she will help select a facility and verify that your insurance will fully cover. She's really nice and trustworthy as well!

Eric W.

Thorough doctor who cares about his patients, and very meticulous about the details of your ailment. Clearly very knowledgeable and skilled. No wait time for appointments, and the nurse (Toni) is very friendly and follows up appropriately. One of the best doctor experiences I've had and I'd recommend it to anyone.
