Carson CA Allergy Testing, Immunologist & Sinus Doctor

GERIATRICS & GERONTOLOGY CARSON CA

Dr. Rafi and his team at the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Institute specialize in the care of elderly patients. Dr. Rafi completed an intensive one-year fellowship in geriatrics and gerontology at UCLA, followed by a specialized program in advanced geriatric care. His particular focus revolved around bolstering immune function and non-cosmetic anti-aging with an academic perspective.

Our elderly patients typically range from the age of 65 and above, but it’s important to note that being considered geriatric isn’t solely defined by age. For instance, you might be 70 years old, working a full workweek, enjoying excellent health, and not necessarily be classified as geriatric. Conversely, you could be 60 years old, dealing with multiple coexisting medical conditions, taking a multitude of medications, and fall under the geriatric category. What we evaluate is your overall functionality both at home and in the wider world, your existing health conditions, and the intricacy of your medical history.

For every new patient, we embark on a comprehensive assessment from the ground up. Our initial steps involve a thorough medication review and an analysis of recent laboratory results. Additional tests are recommended as deemed necessary for each individual case.

What you can expect on your first visit:

Your first visit to Dr. Rafi is very comprehensive. We take your history to learn all aspects of your condition and perform an initial examination. Most likely, we will perform skin testing during this visit. It might be skin testing for classic allergies or patch testing for allergic contact dermatitis. We also test for exhaled nitric oxide (called FeNO) to determine the level of allergic inflammation in your lungs. We offer spirometry for assessment of lung function. We can perform nasal endoscopy with a flexible fiber optic endoscopy to assess for nasalpolyps, deviated septum, and candidiasis.
