Colorectal cancer does not typically present symptoms until it has reached the advanced stage, by which time treatment options become limited. Dr. David Yamini therefore advises patients at his Beverly Hills and Santa Monica offices to undergo regular colorectal cancer screenings as a precaution. This type of cancer develops from polyps in the colon which go undetected, except in the rare cases where the patient experiences bloody stools or irregular bowel movements.

Even when patients do experience symptoms of colorectal cancer, he or she may not think there is a need to consult with a gastroenterologist. It only takes a short appointment and a minimally invasive examination for Dr. Yamini to determine whether polyps are present in the colon.

Dr. Yamini understands the risks of colorectal cancer, which is why providing a screening is an important part of the services he offers. We do not believe that our patients should have to go through the trauma of cancer treatment when a simple procedure may prevent the disease from developing in the colon.

Non-Cancerous Polyps

If polyps are found in the colon, it is important to have them removed before cancer has the opportunity to develop. This procedure is part of preventive medicine and is carried out with the patient’s overall digestive health in mind. You will not find a more dedicated team of gastroenterology professionals than those who work under the leadership of Dr. Yamini. To ensure you receive the treatment you need, colorectal cancer scanning should become a part of your regular appointments at Dr. Yamini’s offices.

Contact us today if you would like to arrange a colorectal cancer screening. If you are not sure what is involved in the procedure, feel free to ask further questions when you speak to one of Dr. Yamini’s friendly staff.

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.
