Colon cancer occurs when malignant cells develop around the rectum or inner lining of the colon. The large intestine consists of the colon and the rectum, which is the last part of the digestive system in the human body. This part of the gastrointestinal tract is responsible for absorbing liquid and producing the solid waste that is dispelled from the body as stools.

If you are having large bowel issues and need diagnosis or treatment, Dr. Yamini and his team are available for consultation at two offices in California. It is important to seek advice from a gastroenterologist who has the experience and training necessary to accurately diagnose conditions such as colon cancer, so you can receive fast and effective treatment. Our offices are located in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills for the convenience of patients.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Colon Cancer?

Although issues such as abdominal pain, blood in the stool or a change in bowel movement habits may indicate the presence of colon cancer, this typically means that the condition has reached the advanced stage. It is therefore important to have regular screening for colon cancer in order to receive the best prognosis should you receive bad news.

Colon cancer typically develops from polyps. However, the cause of this type of cancer is as yet unknown. Screening involves searching for polyps so they can be removed before colon cancer has the chance to develop. Dr. Yamini and his team can provide colon cancer screening upon request for all patients.

If you would like to pursue regular screening for colon cancer in California, contact the offices of Dr. David Yamini today. We are committed to helping our patients receive preventive treatment for colon cancer and related conditions.

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!

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.
