We are not your cleaning ladies!
When I was a little girl, the cleaning ladies came every other Friday to clean the house. This led to the inevitable mad scramble on Thursday evenings, in which my mother would repeatedly exhort me to clean up my room, my bathroom, the living room, the family room, etc., because “the cleaning ladies are coming tomorrow!”. Because, truthfully, how can they clean the house if they spend all their time cleaning up instead of cleaning?
So, recently we were evaluating the success of certain programs, and what we saw was that there is a recurring, and entirely human theme that we notice.
It is, admittedly, difficult to try something new.
And it is even more difficult to try something new and not be successful on the first try/pass/week. And then to have to go and tell your health care provider that you were unsuccessful is, for most of us, difficult, if not impossible. And many times, you don’t come back for your visit, not wanting to disappoint your provider.
We are not your cleaning ladies!
Not only don’t you need to be perfect to see us, but we don’t believe that success is the entry ticket. Nor will we be disappointed in you, yell at you, be mad at you, or any of the other things you are worried about.
So what’s my point?
My point is that you don’t need to get your house in order prior to seeing us! THIS IS WHAT WE DO! And we have tons of services to support you! So please, regardless of where you are in your healing process, let us guide you.
Because we really don’t care if your “house” is “messy”. What we care about is supporting you in the game of health.Tags: admitting, defeat, failure, fear, success, support
About Wendie Trubow, MD, MBA
At Visions, Wendie has found a place that allows her to create, to fully express herself, and to make a true difference. In 2000, Wendie received joint degrees: an MD through Tufts Medical School, and an MBA through Tufts, Brandeis, and Northeastern Universities. Amazingly driven and never one to shy away from challenges, Wendie was one of only two women in the second graduating class of this MBA program and has held space and thrived in a male-dominated field ever since. As a board-certified physician in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Wendie truly loves being able to make a difference for women and helping her patients better their lives. Having always wanted to be a part of something that contributes profoundly to people's lives, Wendie feels that Visions is the place for which she has searched. Visions inspires her because she consistently sees that people actually heal through the practitioners’ care.
Just as Wendie cares for her patients and wants them to achieve the best health and quality of life as possible, she creates that same standard for her children by providing an upbringing that supports their own strengths and honors who they are as full, grounded, and complete individuals. Wendie sees being present in the moment as the most important part of being a mother, which for her means experiencing the world with the same sense of wonder as her children. She truly values focusing on the moment as well as the journey. In addition to being concerned with catching a ball, Wendie also finds it important for her children to be able to slow it down enough to notice every small detail about the ball itself. As both a loving mother and talented physician, Wendie balances both the journey and the end goal in a way that allows her children, her patients, and herself to reach the best possible results.
Very nurturing in a very strong sort of way. I see that she’s open to growing. She’s constantly trying to help people better themselves and you can see she’s doing that for herself too. She’s so receptive; a practitioner and person who knows what she thinks and how she feels, but it doesn’t limit her from being very open to things she’s unfamiliar with.
Someone who every time I see her I think about my mom. She’s such a warm person, and she really cares about this place and about her patients. I’ve only heard wonderful things about her from her patients, which really endears her to me.
Wendie has brought me to tears, just the way she is with patients. The caring and compassion that comes out of her - she’s amazing. She cares, and she wants to make a difference. I’m amazed and inspired by her.
She has a drive and she has a presence and a vision as well. What I love is really her drive, her commitment - it’s her ability to really work with people, and in a very positive way.
