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 Chris in LA April 3, 2024 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

Since starting MDVIP care in Baton Rouge with Louis Minsky, I'm in much better health than prior to that. My family members have been fairly short-lived, but I feel absolutely able to do great things for a long time to come. However, I am most impressed with the improvements of quality of life that have occurred to my brother in law. He was one who made his own diagnoses,health care… See more

from Alice in LA March 24, 2024 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

On a Friday morning, I woke with pain in my right hip area (which I had a replacement about 2 years earlier) and across my back waist area making it very uncomfortable to walk. It being a Friday and most doctor offices are closed at noon, to get an appoint with my hip surgeon would be almost not happening. I contacted Dr. Minsky, shared my concern of not getting an appointment with my surgeon… See more

from John in LA March 14, 2024 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

Dr. Louis Minsky has been my PCP for ~10-12 years, even before he began his MDVIP practice. He has always, without exception provided world class exceptional, professional care balanced perfectly with extraordinary compassion, understanding and listening. MDVIP has allowed him to shine in ways he was unable in his previous practice. I recently experienced a life threatening hospitalization… See more

from Carolyn and Jim in LA March 10, 2024 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

We have known Dr Minskey since he first moved to Baton Rouge many years ago. When he told us of his association with MDVIP we decided to move with him. He has always been attentive to our needs and addresses them quickly. Sometimes he knows our needs better than we do! He listens, but knows us well enough after all these years to see what the real issues are. My husband Jim has been ill… See more

from Sandra in LA March 9, 2024 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

There is not enough room or time to mention all Louis
Minsky has done for my family and for me. He is like part of our family and has been with us through the good times and
the tougher times. He is only a phone call away and has even come to our house on several occasions. We all feel protected and blessed. Thank you Dr. Minsky.

Since signing up with Louis Minsky and MDVIP over 8 years ago, I ‘ve grown to know and respect Louis as a physician, as a fraternity brother, and as a fellow Tiger. We share outdoor interests and a love for LSU. We both volunteer for the LSU Alumni Association, where Louis was named 2022 Alumnus of the Year. As Chief Medical Officer, he guided Baton Rouge General and my family through COVID… See more

from Olivia in LA February 12, 2024 for Louis R. Minsky, MD

Doctor Louis Minsky is one of a kind. He always responds almost immediately when contacted, even when out of town for a funeral and his dad’s birthday. He truly cares deeply about his patients. I was so touched when he called the day of my daughter’s funeral to tell me why he wasn’t there. I consider him a dear friend and would recommend him highly!

He is dedicated to his profession of healing and the fact… See more

We have known Dr. Minsky for over 25 years. I followed Louis from his private practice to MDVIP. My wife Beverly joined me about 5 years ago with Louis and MDVIP. We feel Dr. Minsky is our personal, private physician. Over the years he has responded to our various medical needs from hunting trips in Canada to the beaches of the Caribbean. He always follows up on surgeries and illnesses. He was… See more
