I came to see Dr. Seckin on the recommendation of a fertility specialist, who I contacted after trying to conceive for over a year. It was suspected immediately that I had endometriosis, even though the usual symptoms of pain were very minimal in my case. While I'd had very painful periods when I was younger, after being on the pill for many years I had hardly any period, much less painful ones. Within a month of my first meeting with Dr. Seckin, I was scheduled for surgery. I had very little time to really prepare myself for what I was about to go through. Even though I'd done a lot of research about endometriosis and felt that I understood it pretty well, I was completely petrified on the morning of the surgery. The last thing I remember before the anesthesia kicked in was Dr. Seckin holding my hand. My case was much more extensive than we thought and it took a lot longer to recover than I thought it would. During my visits to see Dr. Seckin, he was always really human and present and paid a lot of attention to my care and answered all the questions that my husband and I had. Dr. Seckin actually showed us a video of my surgery, and after reviewing the surgical report and pathology results, I realized how lucky I was to have had such precise care. Dr. Seckin really is the preeminent specialist in the field of endometriosis care and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. He is a rare mix of top-quality science and medicine with compassion and heart.
