El Monte CA Allergy Testing, Immunologist & Sinus Doctor

GERIATRICS & GERONTOLOGY EL MONTE CA

Dr. Rafi and his team at the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Institute specialize in the care of older adults. Dr. Rafi completed a one-year geriatrics and gerontology fellowship at UCLA, along with a specialized program in advanced geriatrics. His expertise centers on enhancing immune function and academic anti-aging that’s not focused on cosmetics.

While most of our patients are typically aged 65 and above, it’s important to note that being considered “geriatric” isn’t solely defined by age. You could be 70, leading an active, healthy life, and not fall into this category. On the other hand, a 60-year-old with multiple health conditions and a list of medications could be considered geriatric.

We assess your functional abilities both at home and in your daily life, taking into account any comorbidities and the complexity of your medical history. When a new patient comes to us, we begin with a thorough review of their medications and recent lab results, and we may order additional tests as necessary.

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.
