My name is Georgina I am an endometriosis patient of Dr. Seckin. Back in 2011, I began having abdominal and back pain, trouble with bowel movements and was unable to eat more than a couple of bites of food at any one time. I went to my OB/GYN doctor who believed my symptoms were caused by adhesions that formed after having a c-section with my second son. I had laparoscopic surgery performed in August of 2011 after which the doctor stated I had several adhesions but also stated I had endometriosis.

For several months after the surgery everything felt fine, however as time passed, the symptoms returned this time more severe. Not only had the pain returned and my appetite diminished but I had to start taking laxatives in order to perform a bowel movement. My husband and I began researching what endometriosis was and the effects it had on women. As we educated ourselves on the disease it became clear that endometriosis is a life-altering disease if not treated properly.
While conducting our research on the internet we came across a list of the top rated endometriosis specialist in the US with only two listed for New York. With my condition worsening and little known knowledge of who's who in this specific field, my husband called the first office listed on the website "The Endometriosis & Fertility Center in New York City." While speaking with someone from the center we were first and foremost told they do not accept our insurance. Their representative went on to say all money owed would need to be paid in full after services were rendered.


My husband and I are from upstate New York approximately two hours from NYC, we are a middle-class family with two children so paying such a fee up front out of pocket was not realistic to us. After our conversation with the center, my husband and I researched Dr. Tamer Seckin who is the founder of "The Endometriosis Foundation of America." Being skeptical that our conversation would be any different than the first, we were pleasantly surprised that Dr. Seckin was willing to work with our insurance and my family's financial status. From the first visit with Dr. Seckin to the last visit, he made my husband and I feel as if we were members of his family. Speaking with Dr. Seckin you could sense the dedication and compassion that encompasses him for the services he performs, but most of all for his caring nature for his patients.
Whether you are wealthy, famous, or just someone from upstate N.Y. Dr. Seckin does not place a price tag on your health. My husband and I could truly tell the sincerity of Dr. Seckin's words when he said he understands how difficult it is for the hard-working, middle-class family today.
With all this said, it is no wonder Dr. Seckin is so highly recognized, honored, and sought after. Dr. Seckin is not only an excellent doctor but a great humanitarian as well.

    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,…

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!

    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.

    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…

    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…
