Agnes' Story

We are now ready to try and conceive. I know that this would not be happening without your intervention. Thank you so much for all you did. Please feel free to pass on my phone number to any prospective patients whom you believe may benefit from talking with me.

My husband and I would like to thank you so much for making a difficult operation into the best possible situation. My family was a little nervous about having 2 large intramural fibroids (6 and 8 cm) and a smaller one inside the cavity removed through laparoscopy instead of the traditional laparotomy. My husband and I were not because we had met with you. We were impressed by your confidence and track record and we were told by our RE that you were the best and only one he would recommend for such an operation.

Our insurance agreed that you were the only one who could do it too, and that is why they covered the operation fully even though you were out-of-network. My gynecologist was very impressed that you could do this bloodlessly with the use of a tourniquet (which he had never heard used in that context). I was a little worried about blood loss, as I was borderline anemic, but I ended up losing not one drop of blood!

The day of the surgery, I remember feeling safe and comfortable prior to the operation and regaining my faculties about an hour after I came out of the 2.5 hour operation. Although it was a little difficult making the effort to go home the same day, I am thankful that I could have this operation as an outpatient as I would much rather recover at home. My husband has told me that you also were very helpful to him after the operation in getting my prescription for the pain medications filled. Overall, I realize there must have been pain that same day of surgery, but somehow I can't remember it.

You saw me for the first time post-operative 5 days after the operation, and I was healing well. Maria was of great comfort and help throughout the whole process, so please also thank her for us. I now have the tiniest scar (0.25") on my stomach and the other ones are not visible. I can't even believe you were able to do what you did with 3 such little incisions! From the sonogram you did at our last visit, I can now know what a normal uterus shape looks like!

We are now ready to try and conceive. I know that this would not be happening without your intervention. Thank you so much for all you did. Please feel free to pass on my phone number to any prospective patients whom you believe may benefit from talking with me.

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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,…

  • Lauren Rodriguez

    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…

  • Kellya Vespa

    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.

  • Meg Connolly

    Dr. Seckin truly LOVES what he does and cares about his patients from the bottom of his heart. My life has already changed in 3 weeks and I couldn’t be more grateful. Should I ever need another operation for endometriosis, Dr. Seckin will be the one to do it. I recommend him to anyone I come across with similar problems…
