Esophageal Cancer ,

If you are experiencing symptoms that are consistent with esophagus cancer, Dr. David Yamini will use an endoscope and order testing of tissue taken from the suspicious area of the esophagus. It is important that any type of cancer is diagnosed quickly in order to help assure the best-case treatment options for the patient. Dr. Yamini will provide patients with a comprehensive consultation prior to carrying out an endoscopy and biopsy to determine if there is any cancer present. As a follow-up precaution to diagnosing esophagus cancer, Dr. Yamini may perform further testing to establish whether the cancer has spread.

Treatment of esophagus cancer depends on how much of the area has been impacted by cancerous tissue. Surgery to remove small tumors is the primary option for patients who have been diagnosed early. However, if the cancer has spread significantly, patients will require surgery to remove portions of the esophagus and stomach. Dr. Yamini will discuss all treatment options as part of a one-on-one consultation.

Esophagus Cancer Symptoms

Esophagus cancer symptoms may include difficulty swallowing, unintended weight loss, chest pain, severe indigestion, coughing and hoarseness. If you experience any of these symptoms or are concerned about other conditions related to the esophagus, it is important to seek a consultation with Dr. Yamini right away. There are multiple conditions that affect the esophagus, which have potentially life-changing implications. Many of these conditions will worsen with time, which is why early intervention is always the most appropriate approach to treatment.

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.
