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 Craig in MD March 11, 2020 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

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. After becoming his patient, in January 2019 I asked Dr. Lou if a Type 1 diabetic could go on a ketogenic diet and he was not sure. We both reached out to diabetes and metabolic experts across the country for advice. On February 25, 2019… See more

from Lisa October 24, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

Our family has been seeing Dr. Malinow for many years. When Dr. Malinow told us that he was joining the MDVIP network we did not hesitate. We knew that Lou was a fantastic doctor who cared about his patients so we trusted his decision.

It did not take long for us to experience the MDVIP difference when our daughter discovered a lump in her neck. We went in to see Lou and he examined her… See more

from Jerome October 16, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

Dr. Lou Malinow has been my doctor for many years. He has always been available to answer my calls or he will call me back in a reasonable amount of time. I feel comfortable in speaking with him on any issue...he's almost like a friend! In our busy lives, it's great to know that my doctor takes time and is concerned about my good health!

from Jodi May 24, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Lou for probably close to 30 years and he has always been a wonderful doctor. The difference today Is he has more time to spend with us and is always researching the newest and lastest research studies to keep us as healthy as we can be! He doesnt like surprises!!! On a scale of 1-10... he gets 11!

from IRVIN May 19, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

I am presently being treated for cancer that Lou identified thru MRI's and ERAYS. He then proceeded to put together a team of specialist that have drawn on their expertise and have added colleagues they hold in high regard to insure that I have the best possible chance of curing me of cancer.

Lou is in constant contact with the team and keeps me well informed.

from Howard in MD March 7, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

Dr. Malinow has had a tremendous impact on my lifestyle, primarily my eating habits. I was going from bad to worse concerning the big three; high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol. After reading me the riot act numerous times, and being mostly patient with me (impatiently) it finally sank in. I went on the diet he recommended, high protein, high fat and low carbs together… See more

from Jack in MD March 6, 2018 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

I have had a few doctors in my life, but no one quite like Dr. Mallinow. He is amazing in properly analyzing my problems that I brought to him. I doubt if I would as healthy as I am without him always giving me proper advice and keeping my almost 86 year old body going. He is always available at all hours of the day, returns my phone calls and I truly could not ask for more. His staff is… See more
