Anabela C.'s Story

I believe Dr. Seckin works wonders because he has all the qualities that make a wonder doctor and even more successful surgeon -- he listens and communicates with his patients for the best treatment plan and also is a true patient advocate. Thank you Dr. Seckin for helping me get my my life back!

I am 34 and when I was 21, I was told I had endometriosis. After 12 years of being treated by the same doctor and him performing unnecessary and countless laparoscopic surgeries to my body, I was told by him that there was nothing further he could do for me and he was running out of options. After the 6th or 7th laparoscopy to "rectify and fix the problem" he finally said that I needed to be seen by a specialist because he could no longer be of service or of any help to me.

After that he referred me to a specialist at Columbia Hospital which was absouletly unresponsive to my needs, my patient history (especially with seizures) but wanted to put me on a medication that would worsen the situation and possibly be detrimental to my health overall.

I was extremely distraut and disappointed at how dismissive how these doctors were to me and my case, which happens to be MY LIFE. That is when I took matters into my own hands and connected with Dr. Seckin, which I recalled reading online about his signigicant success rate with women who have difficult gynocological issues, mainly relating to endometriosis. So, I made an appointment for a consult and I was completely shocked at how super attentive he is with his patients and their needs and also at the fact that he took the time to listen to what the patient's concerns are and what was pertinent for a diagnostic treatment and/or solution.

This was something new to me because I always felt like I was "inconveniencing" my previous doctor and his staff. Dr. Seckin's staff could not have been more supportive, attentive and professional, and that was another thing that I had not actually experienced with my prior doctor. I always felt like I was inconveniencing them.

So after weighing in my options, I decided that the excision surgery was my best option. My surgery was Nov. 5, 2010 and to be completely honest, it was the best decision I ever made because I have never felt better than I do now. I am attempting to this testimony that the symptoms are barely there if any at all on some days. Every so often I'll get a sharp pain for a second or two but that does not even remotely compare to the dehabilitating pain I used to experience before which was so unbearable that it used to land me in a hospital ER. 

I believe Dr. Seckin works wonders because he has all the qualities that makes a wonder doctor and even more successful surgeon, he listens and communicates with his patients for the best treatment plan and also is a true patient advocate. Thank you Dr. Seckin for helping me get my my life back!

Sincerely,

Anabela C.

    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…
