Response to Dr. Drew

Response to Dr. Drew

I’m Dr Seckin, founder of the Endometriosis Foundation of America. You are all aware of the unfortunate comments made by Dr. Drew regarding women who suffer with the disease of endometriosis.

I believe it is my responsibility to make sure colleagues like Dr. Drew don't set the medical treatment of women back to the times of Sigmund Freud when doctors believed that monthly PELVIC PAIN was a form hysteria – mental illness. These women were put into mental institutions, straight-jacketed and given hysterectomies!

Today, this culture of blaming the victim has to STOP!



Treatment and improved quality of life is out there for all millions of women who suffer from this debilitating illness!

Doctors must be aware of how to diagnose and treat endometriosis early to prevent unnecessary suffering, infertility and even cancer. 

They must update their knowledge and have an exchange of information with those of us who ARE knowledgeable about this disease and who dedicate our lives to treating this devastating illness.

I am sure Dr. Drew would agree that we should use this platform to exchange information, for learning, and -- most importantly -- to help our loved ones, friends, wives, our mothers, and our daughters.

    I am a physician who suffered from deep infiltrative endometriosis. I needed laparoscopic surgery, so I went to see my former gynaecologist and he performed the procedure (a surgery which he supposedly does hundreds of times a year) last November. I had severe pain again when I had my period in January and was advised to go on taking a…

    After years of excessively painful periods, a serious loss of quality of life, and a series of uninformed and uninterested doctors, Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein turned my life around. I was told I woke up from my surgery almost a year ago with a smile on my face, and I haven't stopped since. Before I heard of Dr. Seckin,…

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…

    Dr. Seckin and his staff spared me from years and years of heavy periods and unbearable endometriosis pain. After having surgery with him (my first) I can now function like a regular human. No more eating NSAIDs like candy and calling out sick from work. Thank you, Dr. Seckin!

    I underwent surgery with Dr. Seckin in 2017 and have felt like a new woman ever since. If you have, or suspect you have endometriosis, Dr. Seckin and his compassionate team of surgeons and staff are a must-see.
