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 extremely 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!

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Malinow

from Ellen in MD March 1, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

Dear Dr. Lou, We feel blessed to have you in our lives. As a wonderful and so capable physician but as a caring friend. You are always available to us and you have no idea when you are dealing with a very serious illness how comforting it is to know that! Also when we want to share your opinions with our daughter you are always open to that and never make us feel that you are threatened.… See more

from Cheron in NC March 1, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

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! :)

from Sharyn in MD February 27, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

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.

from Sylvia in MD February 27, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

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

from Lotie in MD February 26, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

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

from Sylvia February 2, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

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

Olive oil health benefits

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

Are High Protein Diets Healthy?

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

What causes diabetes?

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.
