Redondo Beach CA Allergy Testing, Immunologist & Sinus Doctor


Dr. Rafi and his dedicated team at the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Institute specialize in providing comprehensive care for geriatric patients. Dr. Rafi’s expertise is the result of completing a one-year fellowship in geriatrics and gerontology at UCLA, along with a special fellowship in advanced geriatrics. His primary focus lies in immune function and enhancement, as well as academic non-cosmetic anti-aging.

It’s important to note that geriatric status is not solely determined by age. A person can be 70 years old, working actively five days a week, and in excellent health, yet not be considered geriatric. Conversely, a 60-year-old individual with multiple comorbidities and taking numerous medications may indeed fall under the category of a geriatric patient. The distinction hinges on factors such as your level of functionality within your home and in external environments, the presence of comorbidities, and the complexity of your medical profile.

When a new patient joins our practice, we initiate the assessment process from the beginning. This typically involves a comprehensive review of their medications and a thorough examination of their recent laboratory results. Additional testing may be ordered as necessary to gain a comprehensive understanding of their health status and develop a tailored care plan.

Our commitment is to provide specialized and effective care to our geriatric patients, ensuring their well-being and quality of life. If you or a loved one are seeking expert geriatric care, we are here to assist you on your healthcare journey.
