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!

Bill C.

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.

Jennifer G.

He's an excellent doctor. He makes sure to find the right diagnosis. I will keep him as my doctor.

Dan M.

Dr Yamini is great! I appreciate that he replies to his emails himself.

Harry O.

Good visit. Dr. was very professional and explained things to our satisfaction.

Mary D.

Doris C.

Dr. Yamini provided a thorough evaluation of my condition. He is a compassionate and caring doctor. Staff if friendly and responsive.

Eva P.

Dr. Y is great. Thank you.

Devin L.

Super helpful even though there were some initial paperwork issues and was eager to see me and not make me wait. Very humble guy and extremely friendly!

Matthew T.

Dr. Yamini was wonderful, highly recommend seeing him for any gastro needs. After my first visit he identified a possible issue and made some recommendations. They led to a minor procedure (endoscopy) and he helped identify what I needed to do. His assessment helped make a minor adjustment to my everyday life that have a had a major impact.

Doris C.

Dr. Yamini is a really great doctor. He took time to explain the procedure I would need and answered all of my questions. I felt like he cared about my welfare and was reassured by his calm demeanor. His office staff was very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Yamini.

John D.

I have seen numerous gastroenterologists over the years and Dr. Yamini is by far the best. He takes time to really listen to your issues and then does the investigation necessary to truly diagnose your condition. He is easy to talk to and explains things in terms you can understand. The office staff is wonderful, appointments are easy to make, and the service is very personal. When you are in pain, your medical provider should not be one. You are in good hands with Dr. Yamini!

Brooke S.

After two months and countless GI specialists and doctors in Colorado we found Dr. Yamini in California. He was absolutely amazing and never disappointed. He listened to my mother's struggle with genuine concern and took immediate action. We wish he were in Colorado, nonetheless we would fly back in a heartbeat just to see him.

Robert M.

I can only say five stars for Dr. Yamini. I went to the ER four times over five days and was misdiagnosed each time. Getting only sicker I reached out to find a doctor that could be seen for a GI condition and Doctor Yamini was that person. Within 48 hours he had me back on track to feeling human again. I can't thank him enough as I had been suffering immensely for just over a week before he helped. He is professional, caring and most importantly to be extremely knowledgeable. His office environment is modern and clean with a great support staff. I would absolutely recommend him to any of my friends and family for any issue related to Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

Dave R.

I recently moved from Florida to California and was in need of a new GI doctor. I'm so glad I found Dr. Yamini! He is a great doctor who takes his time with each patient. I was very satisfied with the advice and service he provided me. His staff especially Toni are so wonderful and accomodating. They treat their patients like family. I would highly recommend this doctor to anyone looking for a gastroenterologist.

John N Alli K.

Wanted to take the time to leave a review for Dr. Yamini and his great staff. Nice to see a doctor who really cares and takes the time he needs to get someone the care they need. I never felt rushed or glossed over and am now doing SO much better, where other doctors seemed happy to let me suffer on. Thank you Dr. Yamini!

Chris W.

The dreaded colonoscopy (shhhhhh! you always whisper about these types of procedures) Quite the opposite as I write this review about Dr. Yamini. I want to tell anyone who is looking for a GI expert, he is the one! What a delightful, thoughtful, professional doctor. Any GI issue is not only uncomfortable, but can be embarrassing, which is why we can put off going to get the treatment we need. I want to thank Dr. Yamini for his bedside manner, his concerns and for treating me with dignity through my procedures. The whole office experience was top notch. Toni is fantastic. Friendly and extremely efficient, not to mention she also has a great sense of humor. Since the colonoscopy, we discovered a few other issues that I thought were happening just "because". Perhaps age, eating too late, etc.. He was able to diagnose other problems, suggest treatment, and within a few months, I am feeling better than I have in years. Thank you, Dr. Yamini!!!!!

Chaana R.

Dr. Yamini is a thorough physician with a calming demeanor. He takes his time explaining a diagnosis or procedure even to the point of drawing pictures. His incredible front office staff ,Toni, treats you like family. She is also very thoughtful in calling you if Dr. Yamini has been held up in the ER when he is on call, and also manages to squeeze you in on an already full schedule. I am very grateful to Dr. Yamini and Toni and can recommend them full heartedly.

Parham R.

This review is for when I accompanied my grandmother to her visit with dr Yamini. the office is clean and all the equipment looks very modern. The staff and the dr are all very nice and courteous. We felt very welcome from the beginning to the end of the appointment. Everything was explained to me in detail by the Dr and the staff. This is important because it keeps the patient in the know and you feel more comfortable knowing what's coming next. Very satisfied with the visit.

Wanda W.

Dr Yamini is very thorough and takes time to listen. He is very approachable, as well. The 3 or 4 appointments that I have had with him thus far all stared on time.

Rachel D.

I would highly recommend & refer anyone I know to Dr. Yamini and I'm someone who typically avoids / dreads seeing a doctor. He's extremely professional, attentive and thorough - makes even the most uncomfortable situations comfortable. Resolved long standing issues quickly with efficient treatment. Always took time to make sure everything was being taken care of, would call to follow up after appointments and was willing to help in any way possible. Toni from his office is an angel and incredibly helpful as well, they make a great team. Grateful for both of them and their care! If you're in the LA area, this is literally the only GI doc you should be visiting if you want the best experience and ease in resolution / treatment.

Carrie C.

I saw Dr. Yamini because I had really bad heartburn while pregnant. My ob-gyn referred me to him and I'm so glad he did. Dr. Yamini squeezed me in the same day and was really helpful. He was able to fix the issue and provide me with some much appreciate relief. He was really easy to talk to and took the time to get a full work up on me. I didn't feel rushed even though I was inconveniencing his schedule. He's got a great demeanor with patients. I would definitely recommend him.

Kristin T.

I was rushing to see a GI specialist and called on a Friday at noon and got to see him that day! Dr. Yamini was very thorough and provided great information from the initial appointment. A week later I had an endoscopy that was very successful. His office followed up and made sure I was doing well the day of the procedure and the days following. I recommend him for anyone looking for a professional and great doctor. Thank you, Dr. Yamini!

Kian K.

Dr. Yamini is as good as it gets. I had to have a procedure recently and Dr. Yamini and his staff made it very seamless and easy. He followed up with me after the procedure and made me very comfortably throughout the whole process as I was a little nervous about being put under sedation. Being a physician myself, I was very happy to have a wonderful experience with another doctor as we tend to be the worst patients. I would send my patients, friends, and family to Dr. Yamini in a heartbeat.

Shirley G.

As much as a colonoscopy isn't a barrel of laughs, Dr Yamini made it as easy as it could be. He has a great demeanor and was very thorough going over the before and the after. Many, many thanks to Tony for all the help and numerous phone calls she made and endured while sorting out my insurance! A big 'Purple' heart to you!

ArlinNSaro B.

First time at Dr.Yamini's office due to a new job which is located here in Santa Monica. I must say if your'e looking for a doctor who is thorough, patient and ask questions to know your medical history.. He is the man... Don't let the age fool you guys...Gave blood tests and next day, I received a call from the doctor himself, left me a message, also his Admin Asst Sharon, so sweet and nice.. So if your'e looking for a great doctor who is patient and also very attentive to your needs.. Dr. Yamini is your guy...

Cynthia R.

Dr Yamini helped me solve some very unpleasant problems I had for a long time. All my other MD's glossed over these problems. Dr Yamini was the first to take my complaints seriously and give me help and knowledge what to do. I recommend his care highly.

Violet N.

I cannot thank Dr Yamini enough! Wow! My wife and I traveled to South America and upon returning my wife got a horrendous bug. The doctors could not figure what it was or how to fix. Dr Yamini to the rescue: he diagnosed her and offered her medicine that was specific to her issue. She was fine a few days later. I do not know what we would have done without him. His bed side manner so calming and he was very thorough in his description of her issues. Highly recommend him.

Karen S.

Simply put, Dr. Yamini is a great GI specialist. I had been having the worst heartburn and bloating for a number of months and I decided to have it checked out. Initially, I visited another gastroenterologist in the area and I did not feel good about the way my diagnosis was made. He was eager to get me in and out quickly and hated that feeling. Dr. Yamini was an entirely different story. He spent time listening to my concerns and fears and gave me a detailed explanation of where the heartburn was coming from and the specific steps I needed to take to make it better. His bedside manner was warm and I felt like he really knew his stuff. What really sealed the deal for me in the end was that he personally called me a few days later to see how I was feeling and to answer any lingering questions I may have had. Not many doctors do that these days. I highly recommend Dr. David Yamini! I have no reservations going back to him for other GI issues that I may have and I would recommend him to my own family and friends without hesitation.

Dalia D.

I saw Dr. Yamini for a GI problem. His assessment and diagnosis was quick and accurate and with his treatment, the problem was solved. His office was efficient and professional. I got in the examining room exactly at the time of appointment. Overall excellent care. Thank you Dr. Yamini.

Lauren N.

I was experiencing some nasty symptoms for about a week before I couldn't take the stomach pain anymore and did a quick search of GI Drs in my area. Dr. Yamini came up in the search and the office staff was so helpful they got me in that day!!!! He was very helpful and very educated on what was going on. He called the next day just to see how I was feeling. If you need to see GI, I definitely recommend him.

Linda K.

I had a colonoscopy with Dr. Yamini at the end of June 2016 and was quite pleased with the professionalism of Dr. Yamini and his entire staff. The surgery center that he used was also very good as all the personnel were very helpful and kind. There was no pain whatsoever througout the entire procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Yamini for all of your gastroenterolgist needs. Linda

Gigi G.

I have to say that Dr. Yamini and his staff are super accommodating and informative and the doctor explained to me everything that was going to be performed and at the last minute I asked him if I could get an upper G.I. Endoscopy at the same time I was having my colonoscopy and he got it cleared and was able to perform both procedures in one visit. The doctor has excellent bedside manner's and I would refer him to anybody.

Olga D.

This was my first time at this office and I've had a very good experience with Dr.Yamini. Dr is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He took time to help me and answer my questions. I didn't feel rushed. He was great and made me feel comfortable. Very nice staff. Great service. Definitely recommend going here.

Alec A.

I have been having trouble swallowing certain foods for almost 2 years and was looking for a gi to meet with since moving to Los Angeles. I came across Dr. Yamini's office and scheduled an appointment easily. Dr. Yamini listened to my concerns and was very easy to talk with and knowledgeable. I had an endoscopy and Dr. Yamini walked me through what he was going to do during the surgery and afterwards he personally called me. I highly recommend Dr. Yamini. He cares for his patients.

Amber A.

Dr Yamini was a good experience overall. He called and followed up with me and my surgery was seamless. Highly recommend.

Meep A.

Such a great doctor and practice! Truly attentive and gets down to the bottom of your symptoms. After having an endoscopy done I was finally out of the dark. His office is great and they are fast and really take care of their patients.

Ellis S.

Dr. Yamini was great. I went to two other doctors who couldn't figure out why I was having problems. He was able to diagnose me right away. I'm a pretty neurotic guy, so it was really nice that I was able to ask him a bunch of questions and call him at a whim to make sure my body was recuperating on track. Most importantly really comfortable bedside manner.

David K.

Dr. Yamini is truly one of the most professional, caring, attentive doctors I've been to. He is great at solving the problem and genuinely cares for his patients. I never have to wait long when I visit him and if there is ever any question with follow up, he is extremely prompt to respond. He genuinely cares to give you the very best service and attend to you in the best way possible. I highly recommend him to all my family and friends!

Joshua G.

Dr. Yamini is an awesome doctor. I've seen a lot of GI specialists over the past few years and he stands out far ahead of everyone else. He's attentive, practical and responsive. There's no doubt in my mind I found a great GI doc. You should never have to call the doctor to follow-up on lab results. A great doctor will always call you immediately once they have your results and Dr. Yamini is no different. I always know i'm in good hands with him. I highly highly recommend anyone who needs a GI doctor to go see Dr. Yamini.

Anita B.

Dr. Yamini is a very knowledgable GI specialist. He is very professional and takes the time to clearly explain what is going on in your body. The office was very accommodating to my needs. I highly recommend Dr. Yamini; it is very apparent that he genuinely cares for his Patients.

Arash K.

I was very impressed with Dr.Yamini's professionalism and knowledge of G.I. He advised me what he thought the issue was, and after a blood test to confirm, he was right on the money. I found him to be knowledgeable, professional, and timely in getting back to me on any follow up questions I had. It was very simple working with him and my insurance carrier on the financial side, and He also connected me with a nearby specialty pharmacy and followed up with me to insure I received the correct medication. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Ruby L.

Dr. Yamini and his staff are exceptional! Dr. Yamini has an excellent bedside manner. He was very patient and kind with my grandmother. He was very thorough and answered all of our questions. He wasn't just in and out of the room like some physicians, and he is very timely as we did not have to wait to be seen. He genuinely cares for his patients. I would highly recommend him. The medical field can be intimidating but Dr. Yamini and his staff made everything very comfortable and easy. Toni was a great help, great customer service, very enthusiastic and efficient. Highly recommend their office, their expertise and professionalism is indisputable.

David M.

Dr. Yamini is really an amazing doctor. I went to him for reflux that wouldn't go away. He spent more than enough time with me, and told my why (certain lifestyle decisions) that were causing my horrible reflux. He's one of the smartest and caring doctors I have seen. I recommend him without reservation.

Jennifer S.

After making so many appointments with different doctors and jumping from office to office trying to figure out the GI issues I've been having, I knew Dr. Yamini was the solution to all my problems from the minute I sat down with him at my appointment. If you're looking for someone who is honest and patient, he is your go to. I've never been to a doctor before who actually cared to sit down with me and have a conversation. He was so knowledgable and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment. Besides his wonderful bedside manner, his treatment plan for me has improved my life and I couldn't be more thankful. If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic, treats the whole person, and takes the time to be caring even while maintaing a very efficient office, then Dr. Yamini is someone you should consider visiting. I can't thank you enough Dr. Yamini!!!!!!!!!

Vanessa B.

For over a year I suffered from recurring painful bloating, stomach pain, nausea and other symptoms. I saw many doctors including gastrointerologists, OBGYNs, Urologists, etc. From the moment I called Dr. Yamini's office I was treated with superb service. Toni was beyond sweet and helpful, and was able to book me in right away. During my first visit Dr. Yamini, as expected, didn't have a diagnosis for me. However, he was willing to order whatever tests were necessary to help diagnose and treat my condition. Sure enough, he delivered. Compassion and diligence are some of the attributes I would use to describe him. If you are looking for a GI doctor I would highly recommend Dr. Yamini.

Chantal S.

I had been having serious stomach aches for some time and I realized that I needed to see a specialist. I had actually never seen a GI doctor before and I came across Dr David Yamini through the internet. I was so lucky to have found him. He is a knowledgeable doctor who cared about me as a person before me as a patient. He explained his diagnosis clearly and thoroughly and I felt so comfortable in his care. His bedside manner is the best I have seen from any doctor in general and he just knows his stuff. His staff is welcoming and kind and they helped with my insurance/payment questions very willingly. I would recommend him strongly to anyone.

Babak E.

After seeing 2 other doctors I decided to try someone out of network. As soon I walked in I was greeted with friendly staff and was seen within minutes. I have to say Dr. Yamini's mannerism is very profesional and friendly. He asked questions my prior doctors didn't ask and gave me the time to ask my own questions. I had to pay a small amount because he was out of network, but the front staff helped me bill my insurance and it was well worth it.

Brooke S.

After seeing countless doctors in Colorado with no results for two months we found Dr. Yamini in California. What a God send he has been. He didn't hesitate one second in the care of my mother and listened to her struggle with genuine concern. He was the help she desperately needed. Amazing!

Brendan R.

Dr. Yamini is very thorough and the procedure I had worked great. He is a great communicator (i.e. listens intently) as well, which is probably one of the most important traits for a successful doctor outside of expertise.
