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 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…
