Where We're Located:

Our office is located on 5th Ave and 68th Street in New York City. We will first meet here for to discuss your symptoms and conduct a pelvic examination, which will include an in-house endovaginal sonography exam. Once you become a patient with the Seckin Endometriosis Center, your surgical procedures are performed at Lenox Hill Hospital, North Shore LIJ’s Manhattan flagship.

What To Bring:

For your first visit, we ask that you bring your records from your previous OB/GYN and from any specialists that you have seen for your endometriosis. This includes any lab work, ultrasound results, MRIs, CTs, etc., from your other physicians. We request that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment to complete your paperwork. If you want to download our registration forms and email them to us click here.

Below is a checklist:

  • Gather documents to bring to your doctor’s visit:
  • Copies of any tests, x-rays, or medical histories relating to your medical problem.
  • Completed medical history questionnaire (See “review my case”).
  • A list of all current medications taken on a regular basis, including over-the-counter and herbal medications.
  • Review any special directions from your doctor about diet or medication restrictions before your appointment.
  • Ask friends or relatives to accompany you if you wish. Depending on the type of appointment you have, you may need someone to take you home.
endovaginal sonogram
This is our in-office bed and ultrasound\ set up. During your physical exam, you will receive an endovaginal sonogram here.

What To Expect:

In your first visit to the office, we will review your medical history in detail, discuss your symptoms, and do a complete physical examination that will include a pelvic exam, which includes intravaginal sonography. We then will discuss possible presumptive diagnoses with you and recommend the testing and/or procedures that he will need to be performed in order to confirm this diagnosis. This whole process will take about an hour, and conclude with scheduling laparoscopy if needed, which is the most definitive way we can make an accurate diagnosis. This will be done at Lenox Hill Hospital in the operating room and can be scheduled anywhere from weeks to months away from your first visit. Depending on what is found upon laparoscopy, your surgery can last anywhere from an hour to several.

Other Possible Tests:

The use of ultrasounds, magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs), computerized tomography (CT scan), and certain endometrial biopsy samples may be used as part of a diagnostic workup, but to date, anything less than surgical confirmation of endometriosis is considered uncertain. We will be evaluating your symptoms first, and thus it is possible for a number of different tests to be ordered. These tests will be individualized for each patient and be related to the symptoms present.

Emotional Support:

Endometriosis is a very personal disease whose symptoms manifest themselves in a variety of ways, often including intimacy between the woman and her spouse. For these reasons, we strongly encourage you to bring your husband, wife or significant other to your first office meeting. 

Our office is located on 872 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10065.

    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 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.

    I have struggled with endometriosis and adenomyosis since first starting my period at 13. I was diagnosed at 21 and what followed was a series of unsuccessful surgeries and treatments.

    Like so many women who have tirelessly sought a correct diagnosis and proper, thorough medical treatment for endometriosis, I found myself 26 years into this unwanted journey without clear answers or help from four previous gynecological doctors and two emergency laparoscopic surgeries. I desperately wanted to avoid the ER again; a CT scan for appendicitis also revealed a likely endometrioma…
