My 19 year old son had unusual symptoms and Dr. Yamini diagnosed it at the first visit. He took a very thorough history and all the time he needed. He scheduled the studies he needed to verify his diagnosis of a relatively esoteric, rare condition. And he was correct. Completely professional but still very real and friendly. Toni, his office manager, is superb as well. She makes everything so easy and her follow up is perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
