Santa Fe Springs CA Allergy Testing, Immunologist & Sinus Doctor

GERIATRICS & GERONTOLOGY SANTA FE SPRINGS CA

Dr. Rafi and his dedicated team at the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Institute specialize in providing exceptional care to geriatric patients. Dr. Rafi’s impressive credentials include completing a one-year fellowship in geriatrics and gerontology at UCLA, along with a specialized fellowship in advanced geriatrics. His research and expertise focus on immune function enhancement, academic non-cosmetic anti-aging, and related fields.

While many of our geriatric patients are typically aged over 65, it’s essential to understand that being considered geriatric is not solely defined by age. For instance, a 70-year-old individual who remains actively employed five days a week and enjoys excellent health may not fit the geriatric classification. Conversely, a 60-year-old with multiple comorbidities, reliant on 30 medications, would indeed be classified as a geriatric patient.

To ensure the highest quality of personalized care, we evaluate your functional status both within your home environment and outside of it. We delve into your medical history, considering any comorbidities you may have, and take a closer look at the complexity of your medical profile.

With each new patient, we take a comprehensive approach, starting from square one. Our typical process begins with a thorough medication review and a detailed analysis of recent lab results. Additional tests are ordered as needed to provide you with the most tailored and effective care.
