Common GI symptoms, such as bloating or gas, are often a sign of an undiagnosed condition or disorder related to the gastrointestinal tract. Symptoms may cause pain, discomfort or embarrassment for the sufferer, with little relief from over-the-counter medications. The issue, in most cases, is that the contributing condition is unknown, and these treatments are designed to address specific contributing factors which may not exist in the patient.

When you seek treatment from Dr. Yamini at his offices, you will undergo a thorough examination and consultation. Depending on the symptoms being experienced, patients may also require diagnosis through the use of medical imaging devices, such as capsule endoscopy, in order to identify underlying health conditions. It is of vital importance that you seek medical advice from a gastroenterologist if you are experiencing common GI symptoms in California.

IBS Symptoms and Causes

Although IBS is the most common condition diagnosed by gastroenterologists, it is believed that the vast majority of people suffering from IBS remain undiagnosed. Symptoms may include abdominal pain, cramps, diarrhea or constipation, bloating and irregular bowel movements. Living with IBS can become incredibly uncomfortable, as the symptoms of the condition are often unpredictable and vary in severity.

IBS as a condition is not fully understood, although abnormalities in how the bowel moves have been linked to symptoms such as diarrhea and constipation. Diagnosis is constantly improving and Dr. Yamini is an expert gastroenterologist who can provide consultation and treatment. It is also worth noting that the symptoms of IBS may be indicative of more serious conditions, so you should seek consultation for your own peace of mind.

If you would like a consultation with Dr. David Yamini or a member of his team, contact our offices today. We look forward to helping you find relief from common GI conditions such as IBS.

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.
