Out of Area and Out of State New Patient Instructions:

At Seckin Endometriosis Center, we have a proven track record of dealing with the types of medical problems you are facing. We understand that traveling a long distance to have surgery, especially one with a doctor you may have never met in-person, can be a daunting decision. This is why we welcome your questions and concerns and are ready to help you do what is right for you. 

This section outlines the steps out-of-area patients traveling to New York City need to take to receive treatment from Seckin Endometriosis Center. If you are interested in exploring this possibility further, please follow the steps outlined below.

To get started, please provide us with a copy of your previous medical records, especially a copy of all previous operative reports, including blood work or lab tests done within the last six months and, if available, color copies of any pictures taken during the procedures. With your records in-hand, we can begin the process needed to put you back on the path to good health.

If you are not in possession of your records, please have your doctor send us a copy, especially copies of your previous operative reports, and color copies of any photos from any surgeries performed. Government regulations require your doctors to have  completed and signed a Medical Release Form before sending us your medical records. Download the Medical Release Form PDF, fill it out, sign it and send it. Your doctors will then send a copy of your medical records directly to us.

If at any time you experience difficulties with the process, please call the office at 646-960-3040.

Once your records are received, our coordinator will contact you to schedule a date and time for you to call the office and speak directly with your surgeon, Dr. Seckin, about your case. The initial phone consult will help us better understand your particular medical situation and what treatment options we can offer you. If you decide to proceed, we will arrange for you to speak with our Surgical Scheduler, who will then discuss logistics of having surgery with Dr. Seckin as well as potential surgery dates, insurance coverage, hospitals, hotels, your anticipated length of stay. Please note that out of state patients undergoing surgery usually stay for approximately nine days.

If you are flying in to see us, JFK is the closest airport (just 30 minutes away). La Guardia (LGA) and Newark (EWR)‎ airports are other options. You can coordinate with a travel agent or find low-cost fares online. We strongly suggest you make hotel arrangements ahead of time. If you need to make arrangements for a rental car, this can be done through any of the major car rental companies.

If your surgery is on a Thursday, you should plan on the following schedule:

Fly to NYC on the prior Sunday
First pre-op appointment: Monday (usually lasts two hours)
If additional tests are needed, these will be scheduled on Tuesday
Second pre-op office appointment: Wednesday (allow two hours)
Surgery day: Thursday
Post-op appointment: Monday

If your surgery date is on a day other than Thursday, you will still follow the same schedule of appointments (although the actual days of the week will be different).

Depending upon the type of surgery performed, patients usually need a day to a week of post-operative recovery before they are ready to fly home.

    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.

  • Angela Aro

    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. My case was very aggressive and involved my urinary tract system and my intestines. After exhausting all of my local doctors I was lucky enough to find Dr. Seckin. We…

    Seckin and Dr. Goldstein changed my life!

  • Kristin Sands

    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…

  • Wilfredo Reyes

    Dr. Seckin literally gave my wife her life back. I am eternally grateful to him for his generous, determined spirit to see that Melanie finally live free from the prison bonds of Endometriosis.

  • Carla

    I am so grateful to Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein. My experience was nothing short of amazing. I was misdiagnosed with the location of my fibroids and have had a history of endometriosis. Dr. Seckin was the one who accurately diagnosed me. Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein really care about their patients and it shows. They listened to my concerns,…

    When I think of Dr. Seckin these are the words that come to mind. Gratitude, grateful, life-changing, a heart of gold. I feel compelled to give you a bit of background so you can understand the significance of this surgery for me. I am passionate about Endometriosis because it has affected me most of my life and I have a…

  • Jaclyn Harte

    Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein radically changed my quality of life. They treat their patients with dignity & respect that I've personally never seen in the literally 25+ doctors I've seen for endometriosis. This summer, I had a surgery with Dr. Seckin & Goldstein. It was my first with them, but my 5th endo surgery. I couldn't believe the difference,…

  • Megan Rafael Moreno

    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…

  • Nancy Costa

    Dr. Seckin is one of the best endometriosis surgeon. Every time I go to the office, he really listens to me and is always concerned about my issues. Dr Seckin's office staff are a delight and they always work with me. I feel I can leave everything to them and they will take care of it. Thank you to the…

  • Rebecca Black

    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…

  • Monique Roberts

    I'll never stop praising Dr. Seckin and his team. He literally gave me back my life.

  • 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…

  • Anita Schillhorn

    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…
