Meet Marc I. Lavin, MD, FACP


With over 25 years practicing as a primary care physician in the San Fernando Valley, California, and surrounding areas, my goal as a private internal medicine doctor is to provide more personalized, proactive care to my patients. I aim to treat everyone as if they are my family members. I have more time and tools to help you pursue your wellness goals, and together, we can work towards a happier, healthier future more of a reality. 

Having a small, personalized healthcare practice allows for longer appointments that are typically not rushed, little to no waiting time and the ability for patients to contact me after hours for more urgent needs on my cell phone. And my MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medicine practice, offers conveniences like same- or next-day appointments.

I believe that healthcare is one of the most important aspects of your life and that it is essential to have a primary care physician in the right setting to help deliver the care and attention that most patients seek. To me, the partnership between doctor and patient is critical to developing more personalized approaches to your needs and preferences. I can work more closely with you to help guide you on a path to better health as you make choices about your lifestyle habits and behaviors. As a board-certified internal medicine specialist, I can discuss acute and chronic health concerns, as well as emphasize prevention and education, with more time to coach and support you. I have special interest in chronic disease, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia and diabetes.  

Having served as the previous chief of staff of West Hills Hospital, I have relationships with specialists to help you with your unique needs as needed. My practice is in West Hills and serves patients in Canoga Park, Chatsworth, Northridge, Calabasas, Agoura, Westlake Village, Hidden Hills, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Tarzana, Reseda, Encino, Sherman Oaks and Studio City. I am affiliated with West Hills Hospital and Medical Center.

Frequently Asked Questions

Doctors who operate in the MDVIP models typically see far fewer patients than traditional primary care doctors. That gives them more time to develop deeper doctor-patient relationships that can lead to better outcomes. They can also offer conveniences that most primary care doctors can’t, including same- and next-day appointments. They’re available after hours for urgent matters. And they have time to focus on prevention. That focus begins with the MDVIP Wellness Program, which patients pay for with their annual membership fee.

Most MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices accept insurance (your physician can tell you whether they accept your specific insurance plan). Your annual fee pays for preventive care medical services that insurance usually doesn’t cover (e.g., advanced diagnostic testing and screenings). Your MDVIP-affiliated physician will continue to bill your insurance and charge copays, co-insurances and deductibles as he or she currently does for other medical services like sick visits.

MDVIP makes wellness and prevention easier by providing your physician with innovative tools and technology. MDVIP supports your physician’s practice and seeks to eliminate barriers to a positive healthcare experience. Your doctor will determine whether and how to incorporate these tools at his/her discretion.

Testimonials from patients of Marc I. Lavin, MD, FACP

Dr. Lavin is the best

from Evann Meg in CA • February 10, 2024
I'm terrified of blood tests. Dr. Lavin takes the time to sit with me while my blood tests are done. He understands my fears and does everything in his power to make me feel comfortable and at ease. He's always available for questions. He reminds me of what doctor patient relationships used to be. I'm grateful for Dr. Lavin.

Marc Lavin: I'm a practicing surgeon, and Dr Lavin is my Doctor by choice!.

Dr Lavin is a superior physician, and I should know, I am an MD as well. I have been in General Surgery practice in the West Hills area for 33 years, and I chose Dr Lavin as my internist. He is intelligent, caring and does the right thing- without excess. He practices the Art of Medicine, not "cookbook" care- and will do what's proper, at all times. Unfortunately, we are seeing Read more...

from Kathie in CA • February 28, 2018
Dr. Lavin,
Bob and I became patients of yours well over 15 years ago, right ?
We followed you into the MDVIP program because we were getting older and we valued the personal and attentive care you provided us. Bob, who never really liked going to a doctor, not only felt comfortable with you but enjoyed his visits with you. He felt like you cared about us, not just as patients, but as Read more...
