We have Dr Mark X Lowney with us who is a renowned Gynecologist. He’s considered the prodigy when we talk about Cosmetic surgeons. Let’s see how he became a perfectionist. In this conversation, we have extracted his top secrets to achieve the top position anywhere. So, let’s jump right into it,
Q: – Where were you born and who compelled you to become a doctor?
A: – Born in 1963 in Bainbridge & later moved to Lebanon. I graduated from Boston College in 1985 having a bachelor in biology. Later, received Doctor of Medicine at the University of Connecticut School Of Medicine.
As such, none compelled me to choose Medicine and I was given free-hand by my father to opt whatever I like, I went for it on my own.
Q: – Let’s admit that you won’t notice too many “Male” gynaecologists in the field, why particularly this field?
A: – In a male-dominated society, I was cognizant of the problems women face. I’m not talking about developing countries but even in developed countries, the situation isn’t that good. I wanted to make a change but I always thought how a tiny creature like me could make any difference to this world. But as it’s said “Where there is a will, there is a way“, it suits me, I believe this line is written for me. I kept searching how could a doctor help women, then an idea struck and I thought I would be a gynaecologist who would help women with their deliveries and as I grew more in this field, I took a step further and studied more and became able to deal with men/women age management issues as well.
Q: – If a young guy is reading this, what would you suggest to him?
A: – I would highly recommend him to accept that right now in his life that life isn’t a bed of roses. You step in your professional life and there’re challenges out there already waiting for you. I would strongly recommend you to stay mentally prepared for this.
I’m not saying, you would fail but there’re a couple of things which you must start practising right now. After humility, one trait that helped me to get that far was self-discipline. This term doesn’t sound like anything to you now, but later you’d thank me for telling you to be prepared.
Q: – Let’s be real and admit that there’s always a point in your career when you fail, how do you cope up with such a situation?
A: – Since 8, I built up the taste of reading books, I’ve got a huge collection of self-help books. Whenever I lost track and experienced something which devastated me, I read such literature which helped me to soothe my mind.
Q: – Our researchers told us about your nick- Dr. FeelGood in the hospital, why is it so?
A: – Wow! You’ve done a great job getting that name out!
To be honest, I’ve nothing to say. I… ehm! I don’t know? Yes, I don’t know..
Q: – 10 years from now, where do you see yourself?
A: – Thanks for asking that question, I always deliberate on this. No matter what, I always look for new ways to challenge myself. I think it’s the only way for anyone to grow. I want the circumference of my comfort zone to extend, till I die. For this, I’ve planned to introduce clinics throughout South Florida and even across New England.
When doing Medicine, I have been away from my family which I have missed a great deal. I look forward to spending more time with my family in the coming times. I’ve kids and I want to be their little horse on that carpeted floor, I want to escort them in their lives with complete support from my side in anything they would like to do.
