Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a gastrointestinal disorder which impacts the muscles between the esophagus and stomach. This group of muscles is called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and is largely responsible for preventing food and acid from traveling out of the stomach and back into the esophagus. The result is acid reflux which can cause discomfort and pain in the chest, as well as potentially leading to a complication known as Barrett’s esophagus that may lead to the development of cancerous cells.

Certain types of food may exacerbate the condition and pregnant women are especially prone to suffering from GERD. The good news is, Dr. David Yamini and his team can provide diagnosis and specialist treatment for GERD and acid reflux at his offices in California. Patients can choose to visit either our Beverly Hills or Santa Monica offices for their convenience.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of GERD?

The signs and symptoms of GERD typically present after eating or drinking certain foods. However, sufferers may experience symptoms with no warning. The feeling of food traveling back into the esophagus, a sour taste in the mouth and throat or a burning sensation in the chest or throat are some of the most common symptoms of GERD.

Dr. Yamini will provide a comprehensive examination of the esophagus and stomach to determine if GERD is the cause of your symptoms. You can freely discuss your treatment options and any concerns with Dr. Yamini or a member of his team during your consultation.

To arrange a consultation with Dr. Yamini’s team at one of our comfortable and relaxing California offices, contact us online or call and speak to a friendly team member at your earliest convenience. Address your symptoms early to avoid ill health from additional complications which can arise from GERD.

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.

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.
