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 extrememly 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!

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

Dr. Louis Malinow is a very caring doctor. For me, I believe he has saved my life.
He takes wonderful care of my husband, never in a hurry to rush you
out of his office or on the phone.

from Marsha October 17, 2017 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

It is a true partnership that my husband and I have with Dr. Lou. He is compassionate and takes time to listen. We live in Frederick, MD now and have thought about looking into a doctor locally but we just can't justify what Lou has to offer. We have been going to Lou for a long time and can't imagine going to any other internist, We would like to congratulate him...he deserves this… See more

Dr. Lou, as he frequently refers to himself, through his diagnostic capabilities and interest in his patients, has saved the life of my husband, myself, and most recently, my sister. What more could be said?

from Cheron March 21, 2017 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

I truly have the greatest Dr! I've been with Dr. Malinow for about 20 years and I appreciate that I have always received the same level of care and service since we began. I hear so many horror stories of uncaring doctors and I'm grateful and blessed to know that is not my experience. Good healthcare is a blessing, a great doctor is an angel. I'm a pretty blessed!

from steve in MD October 26, 2016 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

LOU MALINOW CARES ABOUT ME. Him, and his staff are #1. He always has time to answer any questions I may have. I can email him. I can call him on his office or cell phone. Just knowing that makes me appreciate what he does. I consider Lou a friend, as well as my Doctor. MDVIP is lucky to have him on board.

from Sylvia in MD October 26, 2016 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

I feel I do have a close relationship with Dr Lou Malinow because he makes you feel very comfortable when you are in his office discussing something medical or even exercise. If you call to discuss a problem it's amazing how he can diagnose the problem right over the phone which means his is listening to what his patients have to say. He is one remarkable doctor and I am not surprised… See more

from Sharon October 26, 2016 for Louis B. Malinow, MD

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
