Meet Catalin Marinescu of OBGYN Care

Today we’d like to introduce you to Catalin Marinescu.

Catalin, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
OBGYN CARE was founded in 2013 on the idea of high quality personalized care.

The concept is basic, just like people eating from “Whole foods” or driving electric nonpolluting cars. It is more than medication in medicine, it is the human touch, the warmth, the empathy, the understanding. Of course, we benefit from extraordinary knowledge and expertise but is the way we interact with our patients that makes our clinic “organic”. In return, we take great responsibility to deliver as promised. What I am trying to say is that most people don’t know what they need in terms of treatment, may or may not understand or even care, it is the doctor that can or cannot make or keep them healthy. The doctor-patient relationship is the sole foundation on which you could build up exceptional healthcare.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I discovered in the human nature, including mine probably, the tendency to dwell into things that haven’t worked the way we wanted at some point and assign them a bad implication. However other things may change as consequence of a “bad” event and later on we may find satisfaction in a different form. We always forget to go back in time to re-categorize the initial “bad” event into a good one since otherwise the alternative favorable outcome wouldn’t have happen at all. And if you picture that any great outcome in life closes a journey of struggles, for each positive memory, our mind accumulates a significant number of negatives. It is in our power to control our minds into seeing the big picture not just the details. I had times of struggle and times of smooth sailing as in any business but today I like to think of the rewarding times mainly, our Center of Excellence Award for example. I believe the past struggles are irrelevant since I am still being around, but only with them we learn, move forward and remember the lessons, above all staying positive.

OBGYN Care – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
OBGYN CARE specializes in women health. Although maternal care is a very important part of our profession, what truly sets us apart is the gynecologic surgical performance. It takes a long learning curve, lots of experience, training and dedication to follow each outcome and to try to improve constantly. We live in the era of robotic surgery and we are proud to be among the best, whether a woman comes with fibroids, endometriosis, prolapse or any surgical complaint. Along with our high-risk pregnancy profile, that makes us complete comparing with our competition.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
First of all, for any business to even exist, the success has to be material. A business cannot survive struggling with bills from one month to another. That is the sole reason why companies in general tend to come together in larger and larger entities to try to maximize the cost efficiency. A small business has a large overhead per provider. Second the success means reputation and results. Now this is where the vicious circle closes. Being a smaller company, the reputation reflects the performance accurately without the good or bad being diluted into untraceable statistic. That is an advantage when anyone can “google” anyone else. However, I think younger generations are less educated to recognize value. Unfortunately, we live in the era of cost.

Summarizing, I see success in a fluid state, it changes depending on the momentary goals. I tend to avoid getting stuck into an enterprise or into a sedentary pattern of judgement because the failure is imminent when you become outdated.
