Maywood CA Allergy Testing, Immunologist & Sinus Doctor


Dr. Rafi and his dedicated team at the Allergy, Asthma and Sinus Institute specialize in providing top-tier care for geriatric patients. Dr. Rafi’s extensive qualifications include a one-year fellowship in geriatrics and gerontology at UCLA, as well as a specialized fellowship in advanced geriatrics. His expertise is centered around enhancing immune function, academic non-cosmetic anti-aging, and delivering comprehensive geriatric care.

While our geriatric patients are typically aged 65 and older, it’s crucial to emphasize that being considered geriatric isn’t solely defined by age. Age alone doesn’t determine one’s geriatric status. For instance, a 70-year-old individual who works full-time, maintains excellent health, and remains highly functional both at home and outside may not be classified as geriatric. Conversely, a 60-year-old with multiple comorbidities, reliant on 30 medications, may indeed be a geriatric patient.

Our approach to evaluating geriatric patients goes beyond their age. We assess their functional capabilities, both within the home and in broader settings, considering their comorbidities and the complexity of their medical profile. For every new patient, we initiate the assessment process from scratch. Typically, this begins with a thorough review of their current medications and an examination of recent laboratory results. As part of our patient-centered approach, we also order additional tests and evaluations as necessary to gain a comprehensive understanding of their unique medical needs. If you or a loved one requires specialized geriatric care, we are here to support your journey towards improved health and an enhanced quality of life.

Geriatrics & Gerontology


At the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Institute, we specialize in delivering highly effective, cutting-edge treatments for various medical conditions in the fields of Allergy, Immunology, Respiratory, and Skin Disorders. Allergies, for instance, occur when the immune system responds to typically harmless allergens like dust mites, resulting in troublesome symptoms such as sneezing, rashes, itching, or shortness of breath.

Our treatment approach is comprehensive, tailored to provide the best possible results for each individual. We offer state-of-the-art diagnostic testing and employ a thorough method to address the specific needs of every patient. Our commitment to quality care extends to patients of all ages, from infants and children to adults and older adults.
