Louis B. Malinow, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

MDVIP has enabled me to practice medicine in the manner patients deserve. The time I have available allows me to form very close bonds with my patients to help to facilitate a level of trust and comfort that is difficult to find in a traditional practice. As a cholesterol and blood pressure specialist, I tend to take a very aggressive preventive approach to medicine, which I believe will be extrememly beneficial decades down the road. My patients appreciate my emphasis on wellness and my dedication to remaining on top of current medical information. The ability to positively impact so many lives is such a privilege; I really can't wait to get to work every day!
