A while ago (pre-covid) i was on vacation in California with my wife and i had a cold and a bad cough.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Malinow
My husband battled complication after complication such as diabetes, heart, kidney & eventually lung cancer. Dr. Lou referred him to wonderful specialists, as well as keeping up-to-date on his numerous medications. Dr. Lou also made sure to examine him after every discharge from the hospital.

First of all congratulations to Dr Lou!! Well deserved. Almost 13 years ago I was exercising 6 days a week and in perfect shape. I was going to another doctor at the time and she prescribed medicine which didn't help so I called her office, but they wouldn't see me. I was getting sicker and sicker and my daughter was working for Dr Lou at this time and she got me in his office.… See more
I am a 53 year-old physician who has lived with type 1 diabetes for 34 years. I have followed Dr. Lou's Facebook postings about low carb diets for years.

We both reached out to diabetes and metabolic experts across the country for advice. On February 25, 2019… 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
