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!

    I’ve seen many obgyns over the years explaining my monthly symptoms during my period...but eventually it became a daily struggle with these pain. It feels like a poke here and there near my right pelvic region. I was given birth control pills for the past ten years but honestly, it didn’t help at all. I was in bed whenever I…

    Dr.Seckin is so much more than a surgeon. His passion for helping endometriosis sufferers and determination to improve the quality of life in all of his patients is undeniable. I remember when my gynecologist first told me I needed a laparoscopy. Her exact words were "I can do the surgery, but if you were MY daughter- I'd send you to…

    I am a physician who suffered from deep infiltrative endometriosis. I needed laparoscopic surgery, so I went to see my former gynaecologist and he performed the procedure (a surgery which he supposedly does hundreds of times a year) last November. I had severe pain again when I had my period in January and was advised to go on taking a…

    After years of excessively painful periods, a serious loss of quality of life, and a series of uninformed and uninterested doctors, Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein turned my life around. I was told I woke up from my surgery almost a year ago with a smile on my face, and I haven't stopped since. Before I heard of Dr. Seckin,…

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…

    Dr. Seckin and his staff spared me from years and years of heavy periods and unbearable endometriosis pain. After having surgery with him (my first) I can now function like a regular human. No more eating NSAIDs like candy and calling out sick from work. Thank you, Dr. Seckin!
