I had been going through IVF for a little bit over a year when I decided to switch doctors. Friends of mine had recommended a terrific doctor on the East Side in Midtown, and on my very first visit he was able to identify one of the issues why I was not getting pregnant. I had started to get fibroids a couple of years earlier but as far as I knew they were growing very slowly and my last fertility doctor didn’t think they were an issue. My new doctor did. He detected that one of them was large enough and it was literally in the center of my uterus. He reffered me to Dr. Seckin. He mentioned his wife had had a very successful laparoscopic hysterectomy with Dr. Seckin and he was recommending that I consider removing my fibroids laparoscopically before moving forward with IVF treatments

My very first visit with Dr. Seckin was very eye opening. He took time to sit with me and discuss the different types of fibroids and how he was able to go in laparoscopically to remove them. I really appreciated the amount of time he took with me because I remembered coming out of the office and more than 45 minutes had passed, so right away I knew he was the right doctor.

The entire process up to and including surgery was the same way. Dr. Seckin patiently explained what the surgery entailed and even suggested some YouTube website so I could watch actual laparoscopic myomectomy being performed, which believe it or not was a big help.

The day of surgery I was extremely nervous waiting for my turn. Right before I was wheeled into surgery, Dr. Seckin assured me that everything would be fine, and it was. The surgery went very well. And what was even more amazing was that my incisions healed extremely well. I couldn’t believe it. The very next day after surgery I was in some pain of course, but I was up and walking around and within a couple of weeks my incisions were pretty much healed. One of the incisions was through my belly button and I was nervous about Dr. Seckin having to reconstruct it but it looks the same as it did before.

I’m still going through IVF treatments. It turns out I have other issues besides my fibroids but at least my fibroids are one less thing for me to worry about, thanks to Dr. Seckin.

    I was in pain for 2 years. I was getting no answers, and because dr Goldstein and dr seckins were willing to see and treat me I'm finally feeling almost back to normal. They were very down to earth and helpful in my time of need. Dr Goldstein was easy to talk to and caring, she took care of me…

    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…

  • Nicholette Sadé

    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.
