When the liver becomes scarred, it can result in abnormal liver function or chronic damage. Cirrhosis of the liver impacts the lives of around two percent of the United States population and is the seventh leading cause of death in adults between the ages of 25 and 64. As one of the most vital organs in the body, it is important to seek treatment for any condition which may affect the liver.

Dr. Yamini is a leading gastroenterologist in California, with offices in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. He can provide diagnosis and treatment for cirrhosis of the liver and related gastrointestinal tract conditions. If you are experiencing symptoms associated with cirrhosis of the liver, it is vital that you seek a diagnosis immediately in order to increase the chances of a best-case-scenario outcome from treatment.

Symptoms and Causes of Cirrhosis of the Liver

Symptoms of cirrhosis of the liver may include jaundice, digestive tract bleeding, fatigue and hepatic encephalopathy. Other symptoms include swelling around the liver or a feeling of pressure that isn’t always accompanied by pain or discomfort. Identifying cirrhosis of the liver early plays a crucial part in effective treatment.

Cirrhosis of the liver may result from drinking alcohol, inherited disorders, toxin exposure or viruses. An experienced and reliable gastroenterologist will provide diagnosis and explore potential treatments on a case-by-case basis. As well as receiving treatment, you may need to eliminate social and environmental factors that contributed to your development of cirrhosis of the liver.

Once the liver is scarred the impacts may be permanent, so it is critical to consult with a gastroenterologist if you have experienced any of the symptoms. Dr. David Yamini is here to help. Contact our offices in Santa Monica or Beverly Hills if you need advice or to book an appointment.

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.
