Canadian Patients Seeking U.S. Colonoscopy ,

At the offices of David P. Yamini, MD, we understand the urgency of having a colonoscopy when you are facing the prospect of a daunting diagnosis or the worsening of a current condition. Unfortunately, waiting times for patients in Canada can be six to eight months—or longer in some cases. Trusting a doctor to provide sound recommendations when it comes to testing for potentially serious gastroenterological conditions is also a gamble that some patients are not prepared to take.

If you are seeking to cut through the waiting time for a colonoscopy, Dr. Yamini is able to provide affordable cash pricing, putting you on a faster path to the right treatment options. We welcome international patients—especially those traveling from Canada to seek testing from a highly qualified doctor in the United States.

Dr. Yamini has offices in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica, giving Canadian patients a choice of where they can schedule a colonoscopy. This is your opportunity to get to the bottom of any gastroenterological health problems you have been experiencing. Symptoms that impact the gastroenterology system can point to a large number of conditions, some of which may pose a significant risk to health and well-being.

If you have been told that a colonoscopy will take months where you live in Canada, paying for testing may be the best investment you ever make in your health. Dr. Yamini offers affordable testing through cash payment. As a double board-certified practitioner in gastroenterology and internal medicine, you are always in good hands when you trust Dr. David P. Yamini in Santa Monica or Beverly Hills.

Fast-Track your Colonoscopy

The gastroenterology system is a complex network of organs which, collectively, perform an incredible number of functions in the body. When you experience pain or discomfort that may stem from colon polyps, tumors, inflammation or ulcers, a colonoscopy allows a gastroenterologist to examine the lining of the large intestine, rectum and colon. The test involves looking at the colon using a flexible tube with a camera attached, at which time samples are sometimes collected for further testing. Dr. Yamini may also remove certain abnormal growths during the procedure.

Dr. Yamini is a caring and conscientious gastroenterologist who treats all his Canadian patients with compassion. He understands that patients traveling from Canada may feel distressed being so far away from home. You can rest assured that your colonoscopy will take place in comfortable and sterile offices regardless of whether you decide to schedule your appointment in Beverly Hills or Santa Monica.

Whenever you travel from Canada to the offices of Dr. Yamini for a colonoscopy, we recommend that you do not plan on driving back the same day on your own. The medications that are used as a sedative may cause sleepiness for a number of hours after the procedure. However, the same would apply regardless of where you have a colonoscopy.

Colonoscopy Results

The results provided by Dr. Yamini can be passed to your primary physician in Canada so that a treatment plan can be created once you are home, or you can choose to receive fast and effective treatment from Dr. Yamini at his offices.

As part of the examination, Dr. Yamini will look for the cause of your pain, which may include carrying out a biopsy of suspicious tissue. In these cases, the sample is sent to a lab to determine if pre-cancerous or cancerous cells are present. Dr. Yamini’s office will keep Canadian patients informed and up-to-date on any test results, with details of any findings often explained after the initial appointment.

If you are in Canada and need a colonoscopy with no waiting time, Dr. Yamini welcomes you pick up the phone and arrange an appointment at either of his offices today. Contact us today!

Nicole R.

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!

Bill C.

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.

Lisa P.

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! ??

Kendall S.

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.

Babak E.

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.
