BEST THING I'VE EVER DONE and I got my life back.

That's when I got the reference to see Dr. Seckin from my family friend who works at a hospital on Long Island. BEST THING I'VE EVER DONE.I got my life back. I came into see him and he gave me a bit of hope. Hope is a hard thing to have when you have Endometriosis until you have results. Then…

I'm Kelly Hope T. and I'm 22 and have been struggling with bad periods since I was about in 6 grade. My mother was diagnosed with Endometriosis when she was a teen, even had an ovary removed but managed to have 3 beautiful children. I on the other hand started out with periods that would last a week and were so heavy I would faint and vomit. Until, my doctor put me on birth control which managed everything but the pain & what I didn't know at the time ovarian cysts. Things didn't get really bad until about senior year of high school when I was getting UTI's for months and pain constantly. I went to doctors and no answers. I kept managing my symptoms thinking the doctors had to be right; There was nothing wrong with me. I guess the hardest thing was that I appeared to look healthy most days but inside MY body that only can feel was clearly sending me panic signals.

Then my second year at college, I got the worst/biggest ovarian cyst of my life burst causing me to have to drop out of school. Still my OBGYN told me a month after I was fine and 'making up excuses' and to go home. I was furious but utterly tired and defeated. I eventually felt like I could go back to a 'normal' life managing the endometriosis on my own. Then this is where the big red Endo flags started to pop up. I began to start fainting randomly which as you can imagine is quite unsettling & unsafe. Then I basically became allergic to all foods – my sister likes to say I became involuntarily bulimic. Everything made me sick. I was losing weight rapidly; Before my surgery I believe it was 20-25 pounds. I had no strength, no muscle, and no energy.

That's when I got the reference to see Dr. Seckin from my family friend who works at a hospital on Long Island. BEST THING I'VE EVER DONE. I got my life back. I came into see him and he gave me a bit of hope. Hope is a hard thing to have when you have Endometriosis until you have results. Then the surgery came.

As someone who has been to the hospital a lot this was a walk in the park but when it was time to really go my stomach dropped and I didn't know what to do. I walked into the room, so nervous and I was suddenly in a movie but then I saw those memorable glass & heard his accent. Dr. Seckin said, "You watch way too much Grey’s Anatomy.” Smiled. “Now are we ready to do this?" and I swear seeing him with those blue glasses that separate in the middle was probably the most relieving sight of my entire life. I know this is cheesy but when I woke up I started to cry. I think it’s because I knew it was going to be the start of something so amazingly new: Living a regular healthy life.

I have pictures of Dr. Seckin talking to my family explaining how he laparoscopically removed all the endometriosis laughing and telling jokes to keep their spirits high in the waiting room. When I went to the check up a week or so later I was so excited because the recovery was not so bad. He showed me pictures and even told me he they laparoscopically took out my appendix too! I was free from the chains of Endometriosis. I was about to started to get emotional. As a person with this disease I think hope is something that you just put on the back burner for so long, until you meet your miracle worker. Until you meet people who take your hand and say: it’s okay, please have trust in me, & I am here for you. For me it is and always will be Dr. Seckin and everyone on his staff.

    Fast forward 5 years to find out incidentally I had a failing kidney. My left kidney was only functioning at 18%. During this time, I was preparing all my documents to send to Dr. Seckin to review. However, with this new information I put everything on hold and went to a urologist. After a few months, no one could figure…

  • Erin Brehm

    I had a wonderful experience working with Dr. Seckin and his team before, during and after my surgery. I came to Dr. Seckin having already had laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis 5 years prior, with a different surgeon. My symptoms and pain had returned, making my life truly challenging and my menstrual cycle unbearable. Dr. Seckin was quick to validate my…

    I came to Dr. Seckin after years of dealing with endometriosis and doctors who didn't fully understand the disease. He quickly ascertained what needed to be done, laid out the options along with his recommendation and gave me the time to make the right decision for me. My surgery went without a hitch and I'm healing very well. He and…

    Dr. Seckin brought me back to life! I am now 3 weeks into my recovery after my laparoscopy surgery, and I feel like a new and improved woman! Being diagnosed with Endometriosis, then 25yrs old in 2015, and discovering the severity of my case being stage 4, made me devastated. Dr. Seckin's vast knowledge of the disease, sincere empathy, and…

    My wife had her laparoscopic excision surgery to remove endometriosis with Dr. Seckin on Jan 30, 2014. She doesn't write online reviews so I'm writing this on her behalf. I accompanied her with each office visit she had. The staff--Lucy and Kim, are very friendly, warm and professional. Dr. Seckin was excellent in every capacity. He spent a lot of…

  • Karen N

    I was diagnosed with Endometriosis at 19. I saw several Endometriosis "Specialists" since then, had a few laproscopic surgeries to "remove" the endometriosis and continued to be in pain. I had a hysterectomy in 2012 and was told this would stop the pain once and for all. No such luck! Tired of spending days in bed with a heating pad,…

    I researched and found Dr. Seckin after dealing with years of doctors who couldn't help me or refused to go the extra mile for their patients. I have to say I am truly blessed to have found such a compassionate and talented doctor. He is exquisite with everything he does, and both his team at the office and surgical team…

    Dr. Seckin is a very skilled surgeon. There are not many doctors like him that truly understand the effects of endometriosis. I am lucky to have found him. The staff is wonderful too.

    Dr. Seckin truly LOVES what he does and cares about his patients from the bottom of his heart. My life has already changed in 3 weeks and I couldn’t be more grateful. Should I ever need another operation for endometriosis, Dr. Seckin will be the one to do it. I recommend him to anyone I come across with similar problems…
