Indigestion (Dyspepsia) ,

Indigestion is a gastroenterology condition which can seriously impact the life of the sufferer. You will find it difficult to eat certain foods without tasting them again hours later. There are ways to avoid indigestion and treat the condition when it is frequent and reoccurring. In most cases, simply avoiding the foods that trigger indigestion is enough to avoid episodes. However, in other cases, a combination of approaches is necessary in order to find relief.

Dr. Yamini may recommend changes to your diet, including eating a few small meals throughout the day rather than the three traditional meals. Alcohol and caffeine can trigger indigestion, so reducing your intake of those substances may help. If you take medications such as naproxen, ibuprofen or aspirin, Dr. Yamini can discuss alternatives that are not linked to indigestion.

What are the Symptoms of Dyspepsia?

Dyspepsia is another name for indigestion and can present with a number of common symptoms. Each symptom alone can make life miserable for patients who suffer from severe dyspepsia. Combined, symptoms are often impossible for the patient to tolerate, and it’s at this point that they typically seek consultation with a specialist such as Dr. Yamini.

Early fullness is one of the symptoms of dyspepsia that often goes unnoticed. If you struggle to finish a meal when you have only taken a few mouthfuls or bites, you may be experiencing indigestion. You may also experience a similar symptom of uncomfortable fullness after a meal. Burning and bloating in the upper abdomen are symptoms that are usually experienced in combination, although either is a potential sign of indigestion. Nausea is another common symptom of indigestion that results in feeling the need to vomit.

Dr. Yamini can help you manage the symptoms of indigestion as well as investigating any potential underlying cause. Contact our practice today to book a consultation.

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.
