San Marino 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 holds a distinguished one-year fellowship in geriatrics and gerontology from UCLA, further complemented by a special fellowship in advanced geriatrics. His expertise is centered on enhancing immune function, academic non-cosmetic anti-aging, and promoting overall well-being in the geriatric population.

While our typical geriatric patients are aged over 65, it’s essential to clarify that being considered geriatric isn’t solely determined by age. You might be a vigorous 70-year-old, actively working five days a week, in excellent health, and not fitting the geriatric label. Conversely, a 60-year-old individual with multiple comorbidities, reliant on 30 medications, could indeed be categorized as a geriatric patient. What truly matters is your functional capacity both within and outside your home, the specific comorbidities you contend with, and the complexity of your medical profile.

At our institute, each new patient embarks on a journey with us, commencing from square one. Our approach typically initiates with a comprehensive medication review and a thorough evaluation of recent laboratory results. Based on the individual’s unique needs, we may recommend additional testing to ensure the most accurate and personalized care. Our commitment is to enhance your quality of life and well-being as we navigate this path together.
