West Covina CA Allergy Testing, Immunologist & Sinus Doctor

GERIATRICS & GERONTOLOGY WEST COVINA CA

Dr. Rafi and his proficient team at the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Institute specialize in the care of geriatric patients. Dr. Rafi’s qualifications include the completion of a one-year geriatrics and gerontology fellowship at UCLA, alongside a specialized advanced geriatrics fellowship. His primary research focus centers on enhancing immune function and academic non-cosmetic anti-aging strategies.

While our geriatric patients typically fall within the age bracket of 65 and above, it’s essential to understand that geriatric status transcends mere age. For instance, a 70-year-old individual who maintains a rigorous work schedule, enjoys excellent health, and leads an active lifestyle may not be classified as geriatric. Conversely, a 60-year-old with numerous comorbidities and dependence on 30 medications fits the geriatric patient profile.

To tailor our care to your unique needs, we evaluate your functional capacity both within and beyond your home and delve into your medical history, including comorbidities, to understand the intricacies of your health profile.

With each new patient, we commence with a fresh perspective. Typically, our approach begins with a comprehensive medication review and a thorough examination of recent lab results. Additional testing is ordered as necessary, ensuring a personalized and thorough approach to your healthcare.
