You are not stuck. You have options. No matter what it feels like right now, you are not easily replaceable. Once Dr. Karen Wolowick realized the truth of these words, her entire life changed. Listen as she shares her burnout story and why she’s so happy she conquered her fears so she could do life and gynecology practice her way.
When Dr. Wolowick started in practice after medical school, everything seemed fine. But it wasn’t too much later that she realized that was not the case. She loved what she did, but she hated the way in which she was doing it.
She was working in practice at a large facility constantly on the go and feeling like she never had enough time to really sit down with and address her patient’s concerns. After talking with her partner, she knew she had to find another path.
So she quit, and spent some time healing and figuring out what it was she wanted to do. It was during that time that she recognized that she’s a damn good doctor and that’s what she’s meant to be doing… but her way.
She learned how to start her own practice and did the damn thing. Now she owns her time, she owns her schedule, and she owns the way in which she’s able to show up and serve her patients.
Dr. Wolowick is truly inspirational and it’s amazing how much her story and mine feel and seem the same. Listen in to hear it all and learn why you really do have options!
