Small bowel bleeding is often difficult to detect using traditional endoscopy procedures. If small bowel bleeding is suspected by a gastroenterologist such as Dr. Yamini, the use of capsule endoscopy may be recommended in order to get a clearer picture of what is going on in the small intestine. In the past, effective imaging of small bowel bleeding was not possible.

Dr. Yamini evaluates each patient on a case-by-case basis and will discuss the use of capsule endoscopy where appropriate. If you are experiencing intestinal problems, it is important to get to the root of the issue so that treatment is provided quickly and effectively. You can rely on excellence in gastrointestinal healthcare that is provided by Dr. Yamini and his team in California. We have offices in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills, making access to essential treatment for patients convenient and affordable.

What is a Capsule Endoscopy?

Capsule endoscopy involves the use of a medical imaging device which is swallowed by the patient. The capsule is designed to travel along the gastrointestinal tract. This is while taking wireless images and sending them back to an array of receivers. With capsule endoscopy, Dr. Yamini will receive a number of images per second which he can use in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as small bowel bleeding. If you have unexplained abdominal pain with no readily detectable cause, Dr. Yamini can use capsule endoscopy to take a deeper look at the small intestine and other areas of the gastrointestinal tract that are difficult to access.

If you are a patient suffering from abdominal pain, reach out to the team of Dr. Yamini in California today. We are happy to provide expert consultation, diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal tract conditions in our offices. Do not suffer in silence, call to arrange your first appointment 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.
