Treatment for Embarrassing Gas ,
Embarrassing Gas Santa Monica, CA

Few things are more embarrassing than passing gas in public. Belching or flatulating at the workplace, on a date, or out with friends can be humiliating. While the body was designed to expel gas as a normal bodily function, excessive gas can indicate an underlying health condition that can worsen over time.

Certain dietary choices are known for causing gas. Remember the old saying, “Beans, beans are good for your heart; the more you eat, the more you….” So, knowing that certain foods can cause you to experience more gas than normal may help you avoid certain embarrassing situations. High fiber foods (beans, broccoli, raisins, prunes, apples, and raw vegetables) can take a longer time to digest, which leads to unpleasant smells associated with flatulence. If you notice that your gas increases after eating some of these specific foods, avoiding them will be your best solution.

However, if diet is not the specific cause of your problem, potential conditions may be a factor:

  • Celiac disease
  • Constipation
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Diabetes
  • Food intolerances
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Peptic ulcers
  • Ulcerative colitis

If you are experiencing embarrassing, excessive gas, you can find peace of mind and options for treatment to relieve your symptoms. Dr. David Yamini and his team have provided relief for countless patients in the state of California for a wide range of gastroenterological conditions.

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!

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.
