I can now travel and pursue my hobby of photography without fear and panic.

From the time I entered his office and throughout my recovery process, not only Dr. Seckin himself but his whole staff has been treating me with consideration, sympathy and respect.

I found myself in Dr. Seckin’s office very scared, desperate, and confused about what was happening to me. I had been having a lot of problems in emptying my bladder over the past two years, especially during my periods. The last cycle, however, was the worst.  I felt like my urinary track was completely blocked. I was literally pushing drops of urine out of myself. I couldn’t work or function in or outside of my house. Dr. Seckin not only diagnosed and treated my problem with a great deal of skill and professionalism; he did so with warmth, understanding, empathy, and compassion. Dr. Seckin gave me a new lease on life.

About three years ago, a large fibroid tumor, which was found in my uterus, was embolized during an outpatient procedure at the Lenox Hill Hospital. I am under regular care of my gynecologist who felt that while fibroid may have something to do with my problem, the connection between the fibroid tumor, which was shrinking in size, and my urinary track problem was not clear. Dr. Broderson, my urologist, suggested that to continue treating my problem as a urological one was not effective anymore and suggested that there may be a connection between urinary retention problem and the fibroid. He recommended Dr. Seckin as a highly regarded specialist in the field of laparoscopic surgery. Since I wasn’t fully convinced whether or not I wanted to go ahead with the surgery, I sought a second opinion of another specialist in the field at the North Shore LIJ Hospital. The doctor’s office was totally disorganized and his demeanor in suggesting diagnosis and possible options for treatment was far from reassuring.

Dr. Seckin was able to diagnose the root of my problem as the fibroid turning in the uterus and by doing so completely blocking the urinary track. He scheduled and performed hysterectomy on emergency basis. 15 minutes after I was brought to my room from the recovery room, going with a great deal of apprehension and nervousness, I made an attempt to urinate. To my great relief, I was able to so without any difficulties. I can now travel and pursue my hobby of photography without fear and panic.

From the time I entered his office and throughout my recovery process, not only Dr. Seckin himself but his whole staff has been treating me with consideration, sympathy and respect.
I highly recommend Dr. Seckin.

    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…

  • Kristin Sands

    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…

    I am so grateful to Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein. My experience was nothing short of amazing. I was misdiagnosed with the location of my fibroids and have had a history of endometriosis. Dr. Seckin was the one who accurately diagnosed me. Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein really care about their patients and it shows. They listened to my concerns,…

    Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein radically changed my quality of life. They treat their patients with dignity & respect that I've personally never seen in the literally 25+ doctors I've seen for endometriosis. This summer, I had a surgery with Dr. Seckin & Goldstein. It was my first with them, but my 5th endo surgery. I couldn't believe the difference,…

    I was in pain for 2 years. I was getting no answers, and because dr Goldstein and dr seckins were willing to see and treat me I'm finally feeling almost back to normal.

    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'll never stop praising Dr. Seckin and his team. He literally gave me back my life.

  • Erin Brehm

    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…

  • Nicholette Sadé

    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…
