Celiac disease is one of those conditions which are largely misunderstood but have very real implications for the sufferer. If you are one of the many Californians who have had their condition dismissed by friends or family, Dr. Yamini is here to affirm that you are not alone. In fact, not only is celiac disease a genuine condition that affects both adults and children, there are additional complications other than being sensitive to gluten.

Children suffering from celiac disease may experience nutritional, growth and developmental issues. These additional impacts are directly related to what is known as malabsorption, which occurs when the body is not able to correctly absorb the nutrients that it needs. In the case of celiac disease, malabsorption usually occurs as a result of damage to the lining of the small intestine.

What are the Symptoms and Causes of Celiac Disease?

Celiac disease can present a large number of symptoms. The most common symptoms of celiac disease are fatigue, weight loss and vomiting. It is important to note that many symptoms are not directly related to the digestive system and may include anemia, loss of bone density and loss of dental enamel. There is no cure for celiac disease. However, the condition can be controlled and treated by a gastroenterologist such as Dr. David Yamini.

Dr. Yamini can provide you with an expert consultation on controlling your celiac disease through improved diet. He can also provide treatment for related conditions that affect the gastrointestinal tract. It is important to manage celiac disease in children, especially, as there are many potential implications for overall health and wellness.

If you suspect that you or your child may have celiac disease, reach out to the team of Dr. David Yamini in California 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.
