Dr. Rafi and his team at the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Institute specialize in caring for elderly patients. Dr. Rafi completed a one-year fellowship in geriatrics and gerontology at UCLA, with a special focus on immune function and academic non-cosmetic anti-aging.
Our elderly patients are typically over 65, but age doesn’t solely define being elderly. For example, you could be 70, working full-time and in great health, and not be considered elderly. On the other hand, you could be 60, dealing with multiple health issues and taking several medications, and fall into the elderly category.
We evaluate your daily functionality, health conditions, and medical history complexity. With each new patient, we start with a medication review and an assessment of their recent lab results, followed by additional testing if necessary.
