When Your Stomach Hurts All The Time ,

We’ve all experienced a stomach ache at some point and know how miserable it can be until it passes. While the occasional stomach ache is normal and typically caused by either a virus or eating something that didn’t agree with us, some people experience chronic stomach aches that become a normal part of life.

When stomach aches become something that you “just live with,” it is time to see a specialist. The human body is a complex machine with thousands of moving parts that all work together for the body to function properly. Many times, a small system in the body is out of whack thus causing progressive symptoms to occur in larger bodily systems. An appointment with a highly trained, experienced, and knowledgeable specialist can help you on the road to feeling better.

David P. Yamini, MD, is a double Board Certified doctor who specializes in medical disorders of the digestive and gastroenterology systems. There are many working parts in the digestive system, which means that a stomach ache is oftentimes more than just tummy trouble. The stomach, esophagus, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, small intestine, large intestine, and colon all make up the complete digestive tract. An issue in just one area can disrupt the whole system.

Symptoms of chronic “stomach aches,” need to be discussed with your doctor. These symptoms include:

  • Persistent aching or cramping
  • Severe, acute abdominal pain
  • Bloody stools
  • Persistent nausea, with or without vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Tenderness when touching the abdominal area
  • Swelling or bloating

David P Yamini, MD, understands that when your stomach hurts all of the time that it can negatively affect your life. If you are experiencing chronic stomach issues, contact our Santa Monica office or our Beverly Hills office today to schedule an appointment. Dr. Yamini will meet with you for a thorough consultation and discuss how to move forward so that you can find the answers to help you live your best life.

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.
