Crohn’s Remission ,

Crohn’s is a disease of the intestines that causes severe symptoms of pain, diarrhea, and fatigue. While there is no cure for Crohn’s, many people experience periods of remission. These times in a Crohn’s sufferer’s life are truly what they live for, and it is the goal of all medical treatments for this disease.

Crohn’s remission is a stage in which the disease is not active. Inflammation in the intestines stops causing painful damage to the bowel and colon because the immune system is working correctly. There is no “rhyme or reason” as to when or why Crohn’s remission occurs, but when it does, sufferers can experience a whole new life.

When Crohn’s is in remission, you will likely notice these signs:

  • Diarrhea, pain, and fatigue will diminish.
  • Blood tests will show normal inflammation levels.
  • Lesions in the bowel or colon begin to heal.
  • The Crohn’s disease activity index (CDAI) score may be below 150
  • Your entire quality of life will improve.

Remission of Crohn’s disease is not a cure. Most people with this disease will experience times of remission and relapses. Remission is what sufferers of Crohn’s live for every day – the hope of feeling well, if only for a few weeks at a time.

There is not a particular pattern for remission and relapse. Flare-ups can last for weeks or months at a time, followed by a period of remission for any length of time. About 15% of patients have long-term remission after the first flare-up, while the other 85% experience shorter remission time spans.

Once in remission, patients need to continue following their treatment plan. Medications should only be stopped during this remission time if your doctor allows it. Each patient’s treatment plan is based upon what type of damage is in the intestines, where the damage is located, and what symptoms the patient has. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for Crohn’s, and you must work with your doctor throughout all phases of this disease.

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!

Bill C.

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.

Lisa P.

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.

Babak E.

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.
