Revealed moderate endometriosis

Dr. Seckin promised to help us and scheduled the surgery quickly. Three hours later, Dr. Seckin emerged from the operating room to give me a full report. The endometriosis was quite extensive and even affected my wife's appendix. Dr. Seckin also had a colo-rectal surgeon present during the operation.

Words cannot describe our gratitude and respect for Dr. Seckin. My wife and I struggled with infertility for five years. After multiple rounds of failed IVF, we decided to switch fertility specialists. Our new reproductive physician had suspicions of endometriosis (even though my wife was asymptomatic) and referred us to an ob-gyn surgeon who performed the laparoscopy which revealed moderate endometriosis.

Another year passed and the frustration continued. During a routine sonogram, a suspicious cyst was noticed. The decision to delay another IVF cycle and perform another surgery was not an easy one. After thorough research and recommendations, we were lead to Dr. Tamer Seckin. Our first visit with Dr. Seckin was quite memorable. After a thorough history and physical examination, I handed him the operative report. A minute later, he took off his glasses, glanced up at us, and ripped up the paper. Dr. Seckin succinctly stated, "This report is rubbish. I do not burn, I cut." My wife was a bit surprised by his demeanor, however, I was not. Being a physician anesthesiologist myself, I interact with surgeons on a daily basis and I am used to their personalities. Dr. Seckin promised to help us and scheduled the surgery quickly. Three hours later, Dr. Seckin emerged from the operating room to give me a full report. The endometriosis was quite extensive and even affected my wife's appendix. Dr. Seckin also had a colo-rectal surgeon present during the operation. He gave us his cell phone number with specific postoperative instructions and to not hesitate to call with any questions.

One year later, my wife became pregnant, NATURALLY, and on April 12, 2016, our precious daughter, Gabrielle, was born. We recently took a visit to see Dr. Seckin's office to show him our bundle of joy. It was nice to hear him say that our visit made his day. May God bless Dr. Tamer Seckin and his skilled hands.

    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…

    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,…

    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,…

    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.

  • 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…

    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…

  • 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…
