Eosinophilic Esophagitis Treatment

Eosinophilic esophagitis is a chronic allergic/immune condition. The condition requires treatment from a gastroenterologist or allergist with an understanding of the methodology involved in providing relief from symptoms. The disorder is complex, so it helps to work with someone like Dr. Yamini, who specializes in treating gastroenterology conditions including allergies such as eosinophilic esophagitis.

Food testing directed diets involves eliminating specific foods from your diet that are potentially aggravating the symptoms of EoE. The next step is eliminating major food allergens if chronic symptoms persist. If Dr. Yamini recommends an elemental diet, the patient is instructed to refrain from consuming any food or drink that contains protein.

There are also medicines that have been shown to help reduce the symptoms of EoE, although there are no FDA-approved medications currently approved for the specific purpose of treating the condition. Dr. Yamini will discuss medicines with you as part of a comprehensive consultation at his California offices.

What are the Symptoms of Eosinophilic Esophagitis?

The only way to diagnose eosinophilic esophagitis is through an endoscopy and biopsy of the esophagus. There are also very specific steps that a gastroenterologist must follow when EoE is the suspected cause of symptoms. If you are suffering from EoE, you may experience symptoms including difficulty swallowing, food becoming stuck in the esophagus, chest and abdomen pain and vomiting. Diagnosis involves allergy prick skin testing carried out by an allergist or gastroenterologist.

Food impacting (sticking) in the esophagus is a medical emergency, making undiagnosed eosinophilic esophagitis a potentially life-threatening condition. Treatment will greatly reduce the severe symptoms and risks of EoE and is available under the care of Dr. David Yamini.

If you have difficulty swallowing or food gets stuck when you do, reach out to the offices of Dr. David Yamini today to arrange immediate diagnosis and treatment.

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.
