Cerritos CA Allergy Testing, Immunologist & Sinus Doctor

GERIATRICS & GERONTOLOGY CERRITOS CA

Dr. Rafi and his team at the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Institute specialize in the care of elderly patients. Dr. Rafi completed a one-year fellowship in geriatrics and gerontology at UCLA, along with a specialized program in advanced geriatric medicine. His primary focus revolved around enhancing immune function and addressing academic non-cosmetic anti-aging.

Our elderly patients are typically aged 65 and above, but it’s essential to understand that age alone does not define geriatric status. For instance, you might be 70 years old, maintaining a full workweek, in excellent health, and not be considered geriatric. Conversely, you could be 60 years old, dealing with multiple comorbidities, taking 30 medications, and still fall into the geriatric category. We assess your functional capacity at home and beyond, evaluate your existing health conditions, and examine the complexity of your medical history.

With every new patient, we start from the beginning. Our initial steps involve a comprehensive review of medications and a thorough analysis of recent lab results. We then proceed to order additional tests as necessary.

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.
