Testimonials from patients of Dr. Malinow
He's been my Doctor for over 20 years! We have grown up together and he is the absolute best. He keeps me healthy, he keeps me motivated and he stays on the cutting edge of health science. I can't imagine ever going to another Doctor...and I have moved 6 hours away. Nope not gonna give up my Dr. Malinow! Love him better than cooked food! :)
By having Dr. Lou as my MDVIP doctor, I am confident that I am receiving the care needed for my health to be as good as possible. My concerns are answered and I get the attention needed. The office staff is GREAT and very helpful.
I am 70 years young and Dr. Malinow is my cheerleader. He is determined to watch over me and educate me on a healthy lifestyle so I can enjoy another 30 years. I am so grateful for his knowledge, attention, availability and friendship.
I truly feel blessed to have him as my doctor.
I am very grateful to Dr Lou Malinow in many ways. First of all he saved my life almost 10 years ago. I know for a fact that he does a lot of research as far as the latest meds for certain conditions and he will send his patients to the best specialists if there is any doubt in his mind after looking over blood work. He is into eating healthy and exercise which he is a perfect example when… See more
Dr. Malinow takes the time to listen and understand what his patients medical concerns are and thoughtfully gives feedback and solutions to all issues, large and small. I also am constantly impressed and thrilled by his nutritional knowledge which I have found to be a rare find amongst General Practitioners.
I have been with Dr. Louis Malinow before he was an MDVIP doc. I would never have thought of leaving his practice because he was/is the best. He has helped me get healthier than I could ever imagined. His attention to detail and the care he gives is incomparably to any other. My fiance' also has an MDVIP physician but his physician can't compare to Dr. Malinow. I suppose some… See more
I have a great relationship with Dr Lou Malinow. I have known him for over 20 years now so I consider a friend and an amazing doctor. I had a bad experience with my previous doctor that I was going to almost 10 years ago and my kids made an appointment with Lou and he actually saved my life. I was in the hospital for 10 days and if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be here to take this… See more
The best, smart, able to trust his diagnosis, and a very nice doctor to talk Also patient for his patients.

I encourage my patients to increase healthy fat intake. Along with fish, certain nuts and seeds, avocado, and even a few saturated fats like coconut oil, I strongly advocate for daily intake of extra virgin olive oil. Most patients know that olive oil is healthy, but are confused about how to… See more
In 2003 a new weight loss fad began emerging—high protein diets. For a while, these high-protein, low-carb diets seemed like the Holy Grail of weight loss.
Over time, many people found these diets difficult to sustain and associated with some health issues. The diets fell out of favor as… See more
Although pre diabetes and diabetes may sound like different conditions, the reality is, they are actually the same disease with the same risks. Yet, many people don’t take controlling their blood sugar seriously until they are actually diagnosed with diabetes.
