I was suffering from increasingly painful and heavy menstrual cycles.

Although the experience was emotionally hard, it was comforting to firmly believe in my medical care, and to know I was in the best possible professional surgical hands dedicated to precision, minimally invasive techniques, and to preserving my fertility.

In late 2010, I was suffering from increasingly painful and heavy menstrual cycles. Seeking help from my ob/gyn. I was unfortunately misdiagnosed as “okay” and sent home being told that a “woman’s cycle can change at any time for no apparent reason.” My next menstrual cycle was so immensely painful, long and heavy that I knew that I was not okay. I found Dr. Seckin through online research, and made an appointment. The office was very helpful in guiding me through the process. After explaining my symptoms, Dr. Seckin took a look via vaginal sonogram and diagnosed me with a fibroid within 10 seconds of looking at the scan. I was surprised and stunned, yet completely relieved at his prompt diagnosis and subsequent plan of action. He thoroughly explained the laparoscopic procedure for fibroid removal, including its benefits and expectations.

Between the diagnosis and the planned surgery, I did have an emergency due to the extended and heavy bleeding and Dr. Seckin was fantastic. He came into the hospital on an emergency call for me on Sunday and performed a minor surgery to stop the bleeding.

Although the experience was emotionally hard, it was comforting to firmly believe in my medical care, and to know I was in the best possible professional surgical hands dedicated to precision, minimally-invasive techniques, and to preserving my fertility. Post fibroid removal surgery, I was home within 2 days and I recovered in full within 2 weeks. About a year has passed since my surgery, and my menstrual cycles continue to be a breeze: pain-free and regular.

I recommend Dr. Tamer Seckin in a heartbeat for women suffering from painful, heavy periods or a fibroid diagnosis. He is full of knowledge, thorough, warm and lively. I would be happy to answer any questions, or to speak about my recommendation further. My email and phone is available through Dr. Seckin’s office.

    Prior to meeting Dr. Seckin and reading his book, “The Doctor Will See You Now”, I knew little to nothing about endometriosis. I was led to believe that endometriosis was not a serious condition. I was told that the pain could be managed by taking the “pill”. I was told that the cysts on my ovaries were harmless. I was…

    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…

    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…
