Treatment and Diagnosis of Gastroparesis

It is important to address the underlying condition when treating gastroparesis. Diabetes is one of the potential causes of gastroparesis, so it is important to explore the diagnosis or work with Dr. Yamini to manage gastroparesis if you have already been diagnosed with diabetes. You will also need to make changes to your diet if you suffer from gastroparesis.

Adequate nutrition plays a key role in managing gastroparesis. Dr. Yamini will recommend dietary changes to you when gastroparesis has been confirmed through diagnosis. There are a number of foods which exacerbate the condition, so you should expect to make major changes in what you eat and drink. These lifestyle adjustments are necessary and will provide you with relief from the symptoms of gastroparesis.

Another aspect of treatment involving diet involves how you eat. Dr. Yamini will advise you to eat smaller meals and more frequently, learn to chew food thoroughly, and eat well-cooked fruits and vegetables only. Recommended diet changes include avoiding fibrous fruits and vegetables while sticking to low-fat foods as much as you can.

Working with Dr. Yamini

Dr. Yamini understands the challenges of completely changing your diet – especially when it comes to cutting out the foods you love. As part of your treatment, Dr. Yamini will work closely with you to ensure that dietary changes result in a balanced diet that is achievable. You can even continue to enjoy your favorite foods by adjusting portion sizes and frequency. The goal is to reduce the impact of symptoms while allowing you as much control over diet as possible.

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.
