Treatment and Diagnosis of Foodborne Illnesses

Foodborne illnesses, commonly known as food poisoning, are the result of consuming a contaminated food product or drink. Diagnosis typically involves a detailed history of the length of sickness and a list of any foods consumed leading up to the onset of sickness. Dr. Yamini will also carry out a physical exam, which will include determining whether you are suffering from dehydration. Other diagnostic tools may include blood tests, stool culture and examination for parasites.

You may not need treatment for food poisoning. For severe cases of food poisoning, replacement of fluids and electrolytes may help you get over the illness. In more severe cases, patients require hospitalization to prevent complications arising from dehydration. Bacterial foodborne illnesses can be treated with antibiotics either orally or intravenously, depending on the foodborne illness. It is important to consult with an experienced gastroenterologist such as Dr. Yamini to ensure you receive appropriate and effective treatment.

What are the Symptoms of Foodborne Illnesses?

Most people suspect food poisoning when they have recently eaten and begin to experience the onset of certain symptoms. These symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, watery diarrhea (bloody stools), abdominal pain, cramps and a fever. These are common symptoms that may indicate a number of gastrointestinal illnesses, so it is important to seek medical attention if such symptoms persist.

Foodborne illnesses can result in an unpleasant time for patients. Severe abdominal pain, vomiting and frequent diarrhea are common symptoms. You do not have to allow the symptoms of a foodborne illness to cause significant disruption to your life. Dr. Yamini can provide effective treatment at his California offices.

Contact the offices of Dr. David Yamini today if you have been experiencing the symptoms of food poisoning for more than a week. We provide expert consultation and can provide the treatment that you need.

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.

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.
