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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Minsky

from Ed in LA March 14, 2020 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

Dr. Minsky considers the past, present and future health goals. His experience allows for good judgement about whether to call something into the pharmacy or have you come into the office. He has encouraged proactive management for maintaining healthy lifestyle and health goals.

from Cynthia in LA March 12, 2020 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

Dr. Minsky became my primary care doctor quite by accident. When he was rotating and looking for a home at the clinic I went to I was asked if I minded if he sat in on my appt with my then physician. I said I didn't not and from then on, he has been my doctor from my primary care physician to mine and my husband's MDVIP Physician. He treated all 3 of my children as well as my husband and… See more

from Christine in LA March 11, 2020 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

The multiple issues I have does not deter Dr Minsky from always coordinating my care. He is easy to reach night or day. When I have to go to another Dr, a specialist, it’s frustrating waiting a month to get an appt.
I really appreciate that Dr Minsky is willing to communicate with my two sons

from Howard in LA March 10, 2020 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

Having known Dr. Minsky, both professionally and personally, for over 20+ years I have come to hold him in very high regard.
He continues to amaze me with his dedication, professionalism, and humility.
Thank you Dr. Minsky.

from Gail in LA February 29, 2020 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

What peace of mind we have with you as our primary care doctor! You are easy to contact, listen to what we have to say, answer our questions completely and follow through so thoroughly. We hope you don't even think about retiring while either of us is still alive! Thanks you so much for being an exemplary physician. It's comforting to know you are holding our hands as we journey through… See more

from David in LA February 28, 2020 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

Dr. Minsky obviously has a passion for medicine and the care of his patients. He has an amazing bedside manner and is so keenly interested in you as a person and as a patient. Of course he talks about your health but he also discusses the latest trends in medicine, nutrition and exercise. He sights medical studies every time I see him (he must do a ton of reading!). His diagnostic skills are… See more

I already knew Dr. Minsky a little before I joined his MDVIP practice from serving on the hospital board where he practices. So, I knew his calm, steady and studied approach. What I was not prepared for was his incredible medical knowledge and complete dedication to his patients. Rarely have I met anyone as knowledgeable as Dr. Minsky. We also travel a lot and are rarely home in Baton… See more

from Andrea in LA March 18, 2018 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

I have always enjoyed, and know that I will continue to enjoy, my visits with Dr. Minsky. I have been a returning patient for years, and there has never been a day where I felt Dr. Minsky was not providing me with the best care and recommendations on how to improve my health. He and his staff are always personable, professional, and proficient. I cannot begin to express the depth of… See more

Louis, you Are the best! Especially on weekends and when I am out of the country and get sick, which lately has been often! Thanks for being there.
