Marc I. Lavin, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal is to provide the best possible care to all my patients. I treat everyone as if they are my family members. The partnership between doctor and patient is critical to developing unique approaches customized to your needs and preferences. I will work closely with you to guide you on the path to better health as you make choices about your lifestyle habits and behaviors. As a board-certified internal medicine specialist, I will diagnose and treat, as well as emphasize prevention and education with plenty of time to coach and support you. My expertise is in the treatment of chronic disease, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia and diabetes

Having a small personalized healthcare practice allows for longer appointments that are never rushed, same-day visits without waiting time and the ability to reach me after hours on my personal cell phone. Healthcare is one of the most important aspects of your life. It is essential to have the right primary care physician in the right setting to deliver the care and attention you deserve.

My practice is located in West Hills, California and serves patients in Canoga Park, Chatsworth, Northridge, Calabasas, Agoura, Westlake Village, Hidden Hills, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Tarzana, Reseda, Encino, Sherman Oaks and Studio City. I am affiliated with West Hills Hospital and Medical Center.
