Scheduling Your First Office Visit
You can schedule an office visit with Dr. Seckin online or by calling the office. We recommend that you schedule your visit during your menstrual cycle or right before or after. Once you become a patient with Dr. Seckin your surgical procedures are performed at Lenox Hill Hospital, North Shore LIJ’s Manhattan flagship.
For this visit we ask that you bring your records from your previous OBGYN 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 prior to your appointment to complete your paperwork.

What To Expect On Your First Visit
Your first visit will take about an hour and Dr. Seckin will review your medical history in detail with you, discuss your symptoms, and do a complete physical examination that will include a pelvic exam. He will discuss possible diagnosis with you and recommend the testing and/or procedures that he will need to perform to ascertain a diagnosis. This will include scheduling laparoscopy – the most definitive way for Dr. Seckin to make an accurate diagnosis. 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.
Dr. Seckin will be evaluating your symptoms and so he may order a number of different tests. These tests will be individualized for each patient and be related to the symptoms presenting.
What To Bring
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.
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 prior to 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.
