My entire family sends their thanks to Dr. Seckin for the wonderful job he has done

My praise and thanks to Dr. Seckin. I would and have recommended anyone who suffers from this disease to see this amazing specialist and surgeon.

I am glowing with joy as I write this testimony because today I have a life without pain. Endometriosis has been the most agonizing part of my life, which I have endured for more than 25 years. At the beginning of my fist menstrual cycle, the pain was so severe that I continually fainted. This was unusual since neither my mother nor my sister had ever experienced the types of symptoms such as continuous bleeding, extreme pain, throbbing and numbness down the legs, heavy bleeding, and a host of other symptoms. My mother took me to the gynecologist who after the first surgery, I was diagnosed with endometriosis and fibroids. I have had several surgeries for these conditions.

Meanwhile, my gynecologist tried all she knew to try to alleviate the pain, by prescribing medications to treat the symptoms, but to no avail. The endometriosis was getting worse, since every minute of my life was consumed with pain and unusual physical indicators; it was taking a toll on my job. I could not focus on anything, I did not feel like myself, and all I wanted to do was sleep.

My mother’s prayers were answered because she kept calling the gynecologist, telling her that there must be something that can be done. At one stage, when the pain got the better of me, I asked the gynecologist to have a hysterectomy, which I was against at all times as this is not a known “cure” for the endometriosis.

After the constant complaint by my mother to the gynecologist, it was suggested that I attend the 2011 Endometriosis Foundation of America’s conference as Dr. Seckin, the world’s best endometriosis specialist would be in attendance. I did as I was advised and made contact with Dr. Seckin.

After the symposium, I made an appointment with Dr. Seckin. I still remember one of the first questions that I was asked by him, “Do you want to have a baby or do you want to be out of pain?” Without hesitation, I said “I wanted to be out of pain”. Dr. Seckin then stated something I respect tremendously, “I cannot promise you anything until I see what is inside.”

Upon completion of a thorough examination by the doctor, with the assistance of his wonderful staff, and my faith in his capabilities, I was ready to have the surgery.

On June 18, 2011, I had my endometriosis surgery accomplished in a detailed manner and without fear. When I awoke, I knew I made the right decision because I was not in pain and it was as though, my brain returned to normal. I remember stating to the Dr. Seckin, “I was not crazy." He said, “No, you had extremely deep endometriosis”.

My praise and thanks to Dr. Seckin. I would and have recommended anyone who suffers from this disease to see this amazing specialist and surgeon.

Being free of pain has given me a new lease in life, all due to the great work of Dr. Seckin and his team.

My entire family sends their thanks to Dr. Seckin for the wonderful job he has done. He is not only the greatest, but most of all, he has become a part of my family. There is hope for me to possibly have a child, but my greatest delight is that I am not in pain.

Warmest regards,

Golda T.

    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…

    Dr. Seckin brought me back to life! I am now 3 weeks into my recovery after my laparoscopy surgery, and I feel like a new and improved woman! Being diagnosed with Endometriosis, then 25yrs old in 2015, and discovering the severity of my case being stage 4, made me devastated. Dr. Seckin's vast knowledge of the disease, sincere empathy, and…

    My wife had her laparoscopic excision surgery to remove endometriosis with Dr. Seckin on Jan 30, 2014. She doesn't write online reviews so I'm writing this on her behalf. I accompanied her with each office visit she had. The staff--Lucy and Kim, are very friendly, warm and professional. Dr. Seckin was excellent in every capacity. He spent a lot of…

  • Karen N

    I was diagnosed with Endometriosis at 19. I saw several Endometriosis "Specialists" since then, had a few laproscopic surgeries to "remove" the endometriosis and continued to be in pain. I had a hysterectomy in 2012 and was told this would stop the pain once and for all. No such luck! Tired of spending days in bed with a heating pad,…

    I researched and found Dr. Seckin after dealing with years of doctors who couldn't help me or refused to go the extra mile for their patients. I have to say I am truly blessed to have found such a compassionate and talented doctor. He is exquisite with everything he does, and both his team at the office and surgical team…

    Dr. Seckin is a very skilled surgeon. There are not many doctors like him that truly understand the effects of endometriosis. I am lucky to have found him. The staff is wonderful too.
