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

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Malinow
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
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!
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!
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.
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
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

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
