Diverticulosis concerns the development of sacs in the wall of the GI tract. These sacs are referred to as diverticula and may appear anywhere in the intestines. In most cases, however, diverticula are discovered in the large intestine along the left side. This area is named the descending and sigmoid colon. Although you may have never heard of diverticulosis, it is a common GI condition that is found especially in patients over the age of 60.

If you wish to seek a diagnosis of diverticulosis in California, Dr. Yamini and his team are here to help. You can arrange a consultation at one of two offices, either in Santa Monica or Beverly Hills. All patients are treated with the greatest respect, and care under Dr. Yamini’s leadership is second to none.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Diverticulitis?

You may experience chronic pain or discomfort in the abdomen when suffering from diverticulitis. However, many patients do not experience any symptoms and may not receive a diagnosis unless receiving an endoscopic or radiographic exam from a qualified gastroenterologist. The causes of the condition are also unknown, although it has been linked to abnormal blood pressure that is localized to the colon.

Perhaps the greatest concern for patients suffering from diverticulitis is the potential complications which may arise. Narrowing of the colon, abscesses, the development of fistula and perforation of the colon are some of the common complications associated with diverticulitis. Dr. Yamini provides regular screenings for patients who are concerned about the development of diverticulitis and a range of similar gastroenterology conditions.

Are you experiencing symptoms of diverticulitis? Seek diagnosis and treatment from an accomplished gastroenterologist in Dr. David Yamini at his California offices. Contact us today to book a comprehensive consultation to explore your options with a friendly member of our 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.

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.
