Hepatitis is a condition which causes inflammation of the liver and has a number of possible causes. You may develop hepatitis from drinking alcohol, a viral infection and autoimmune hepatitis. Other causes include a secondary result of medications, drug abuse and exposure to toxins in your environment. Understanding the cause of hepatitis is important, as hepatitis B (HBV) is transmitted through sex.

If you are diagnosed with hepatitis B, you should refrain from having unprotected sex, as both hepatitis B and C are transmittable through bodily fluids such as saliva, semen and vaginal fluids. It is highly unlikely that hepatitis B or C will spread through kissing or using an infected person’s utensils, however. In any case, you should seek treatment immediately if you are suffering from any of the symptoms associated with hepatitis.

Symptoms of Hepatitis

There are common symptoms of hepatitis you can look for if you believe you have become infected or contracted the condition through alcohol or drug abuse. Abdominal pain is one of the most common symptoms of gastroenterological conditions. If you are experiencing abdominal pain, you can consult with a gastroenterologist to determine the cause.

Signs that alone or combined may indicate hepatitis include dark colored urine, a fever, pain in the joints, lack of appetite, jaundice, nausea and vomiting. Gastroenterologists are specialists in diagnosing conditions of the digestive tract, including the liver. Dr. David Yamini provides access to two offices in California where patients may receive a consultation for a diagnosis of hepatitis.

You can contact us today to arrange an appointment in Beverly Hills or Santa Monica. Dr. Yamini and his team are eager to serve patients in California who are suffering from the pain and discomfort associated with hepatitis A, B or C.

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.
