My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The doctor-patient relationship is perhaps the most important facet of health care and wellness. Knowing that your physician is going to hear what you have to say is just as important as knowing that he or she will make the correct diagnosis and administer the proper treatment. Having the time and willingness to develop this relationship allows my practice to better serve your healthcare needs both physically and emotionally. We care and are excited that you care also.

from Gail in LA March 5, 2018 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

I am so happy you are my doctor, Louis! My biggest worry in moving to Baton Rouge was finding a doctor that I had easy access to when something popped up. Getting in touch with you is so easy I wonder why I ever worried about it. Thank you more than you know.

Happy Doctors' Day! I appreciate greatly the fact that you will respond promptly to any request for advice, even if the request is made on a weekend. Additionally, I am comforted by the fact that you have been so thorough in evaluating each and every complaint I have had.

Thank you for being available to Gail and me whenever you are needed.

from Billie in LA March 4, 2018 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

Dr. Minsky is second to none, in my humble opinion. He has always been there for me personally and when my husband was dying with lung cancer anytime I needed him during regular hours or after hours.

I would--and do--recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent doctor who treats the whole person, not just his physical ailments. He is the best!

from Thomas in LA March 1, 2018 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

Our MDVIP association with Dr. Louis Minsky is and always has been wonderful. This story is about the support, care, professionalism, peace of mind, wisdom and all around general greatness we (my wife & I) experienced when she was diagnosed with Colon Cancer, during a routine colonoscopy. Dr. Minsky took over everything from admission to the hospital, vetting the surgeon, nursing care,… See more
