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.

    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.

    Dr. Seckin truly LOVES what he does and cares about his patients from the bottom of his heart. My life has already changed in 3 weeks and I couldn’t be more grateful. Should I ever need another operation for endometriosis, Dr. Seckin will be the one to do it. I recommend him to anyone I come across with similar problems…
