Severe or chronic nausea and vomiting is not normal behavior for the human body. If you have been suffering from nausea or vomiting for two weeks or more, it may indicate that you are suffering from more than a passing sickness. Gastroenterologists consider two weeks as a benchmark for when a condition becomes persistent. Once the situation persists beyond four weeks, it is considered a chronic condition.

Dr. David Yamini recommends seeking a diagnosis as early as possible in order to establish the cause of your nausea and sickness. The digestive tract is a complicated system that is prone to a large number of health conditions, many of which express the same or similar symptoms. Nausea and vomiting may indicate acid reflux, hepatitis, Crohn’s disease and many types of cancer.

Seek Diagnosis

Nausea and vomiting are symptoms rather than a cause, which means seeking a diagnosis is as important as receiving treatment. You can treat the symptoms using over-the-counter medications. However, that is not addressing the root cause of the issue. More problematic still, the underlying condition may be serious and could result in long lasting health issues.

A gastroenterologist can use diagnostic medical tools to establish the cause of nausea and vomiting, which will allow you to receive treatment for the conditions that are affecting your gastrointestinal health. Recovering from many of these conditions relies on receiving fast and effective treatment from a specialist. That means trusting your care to a professional like Dr. Yamini and his team.

For a consultation to help us diagnose the cause of your nausea and vomiting, arrange an appointment today in Santa Monica or Beverly Hills. Dr. Yamini and his team will provide you with expert care throughout every stage of your treatment and aftercare.

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!

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.
