GERIATRICS & GERONTOLOGY COMMERCE CA

Dr. Rafi and his dedicated team at the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Institute are specialists in caring for elderly patients. Dr. Rafi holds a one-year fellowship in geriatrics and gerontology from UCLA, along with a unique advanced geriatrics fellowship. His focus area revolves around enhancing immune function and delving into the realm of non-cosmetic anti-aging practices.

Our elderly patients typically fall into the age group of 65 and above. However, it’s essential to note that being classified as geriatric isn’t solely determined by age. A 70-year-old individual, who’s actively working five days a week and enjoying robust health, may not be considered geriatric. Conversely, a 60-year-old with multiple comorbidities, reliant on 30 medications, would indeed fit the geriatric profile. What’s crucial is your functional ability within and outside your home, the presence of comorbidities, and the complexity of your medical history.

With every new patient we welcome, our approach starts from scratch. We typically commence by conducting a thorough review of their medications and a meticulous examination of their recent lab results. Subsequently, we order any necessary additional tests to ensure the most comprehensive care.

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.
