Hidden Hills CA Allergy Testing, Immunologist & Sinus Doctor

GERIATRICS & GERONTOLOGY HIDDEN HILLS CA

Dr. Rafi and his team at the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Institute specialize in the care of older patients. Dr. Rafi completed a one-year fellowship in geriatrics and gerontology at UCLA and a special advanced geriatrics fellowship. His expertise focuses on enhancing immune function, and academic anti-aging (excluding cosmetic procedures).

Our older patients are typically over 65, but geriatric status isn’t solely defined by age. A 70-year-old who works full-time and enjoys excellent health may not be classified as geriatric. Conversely, a 60-year-old with multiple comorbidities and a complex medical profile, including 30 medications, might be considered a geriatric patient. We assess your functionality at home and outside, inquire about your comorbidities, and evaluate your medical profile.

With each new patient, we take a comprehensive approach. We initiate the process with a thorough medication review and an examination of recent lab results. Additional testing is ordered as required, ensuring a personalized approach without exaggeration.

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.
