Dear Dr. Seckin:

Please consider this as the most heartfelt and appreciative letter that I have ever written.

When my daughter, son and I first came to your office one year ago in December of 2009, I was at my wits end. My daughter, Pam was diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis 15 years before, had, subsequently, undergone four surgeries, and was in constant pain. Her life was miserable and, watching her struggle to do the mundane things broke my heart. Actually, I could easily write a book about all of the trials and tribulations that occured during those years.  We listened and pursued all suggestions and avenues to make Pam's life bearable. We went to many doctors hoping that someone could help her permanently. Pam did get temporary relief after her various surgeries, but she was always on birth control pills and suffered from their side effects in addition to the symptoms of the endometriosis. Life was difficult, at best.

During our first visit to your well-run office, it was obious how much you understood what was happening in Pam's body and in her life. You mapped out a plan for how to approach her condition, while I hoped and prayed that you would really be able to help her. In the back of my mind, I knew that, if you were unable to help Pam, I absolutely didn't know what I was going to do - pretty frightening! At the end of our visit, while Pam was scheduling testing and surgery in the front office, you came over to me, took my hand in yours, and told me you would do your best to help my daughter. What an incredible feeling came over me! As well as being a highly-acclaimed specialist, you were a kind, caring individual. I felt, at that moment, that Pam was in the best hands and that you were going to do everything humanly possible to help her.

It was a rough surgery and a tougher recuperation for Pam. However, with time, she has recovered beautifully. Now, one year later, she has her life back. She is the wife her husband needs a wonderful, HEALTHY, energetic Mommy to her two adopted children (ages 7 and 5). She is a class-mother, a Daisy (Girl Scout) leader, a Sunday School teacher, etc. I, as her Mom, am thrilled. I give thanks to you everyday for bringing us all to this point. We have ALL been blessed by your expertise and your caring, and WE WILL BE ETERNALLY GRATEFUL.

With sincerity and love,

Pat K.

    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…
