C. Difficile Infection ,

Difficile Infection Treatment

The treatment of difficile infection will depend on the specific needs of the patient. The first action that Dr. Yamini will recommend is discontinuing the use of the antibiotic that resulted in the infection. He will then recommend another antibiotic that prevents the c. difficile from growing. The desired result of the new course of antibiotics is to also address diarrhea or other related conditions that the patient may experience. Vancomycin has been shown to help with severe cases of difficile infection.

In some cases, a patient may experience complications including severe pain, toxic megacolon, inflammation and organ failure as a result of difficile infection. Dr. Yamini may recommend surgery in severe cases where there is a risk to the patient’s life or surgery is the only option. This involves removing the area of the colon that is diseased. In all cases, Dr. Yamini has the specialist knowledge and experience to provide a comprehensive diagnosis in order to recommend the most appropriate treatment options for the patient.

C. Difficile Symptoms & Difficile Diagnosis

C. Difficile symptoms may include abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and other complications. Dr. David Yamini will check your medical history and if you are currently taking antibiotics, he may suspect the presence of c. difficile infection. A number of additional examinations and laboratory tests are also carried out in order to confirm the diagnosis. There is also a risk of recurrent infection for people who have suffered from c. difficile. Dr. David Yamini will again look to medical history to determine if the patient is suffering from a recurrence of c. difficile or has taken antibiotics in the past.

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.
