Jessica's Testimonial

I will always hold Dr. Seckin in my heart for he is the one that I did not give up on me and gave me an equal opportunity that his paying patients would get. Thank you so much.

Dear EFA, 

I would like to thank the EFA and Dr. Seckin for all your help. For years now, I have been tossed back and forth between numerous doctors that have either misdiagnosed me or have completely given up on my health. I have straggled with pain that has been unbearable due to endometriosis and other GYN issues that have affected my work performance e school, social life, have damaged my relationships with boyfriends. For some time now I have had extreme pain during and without my menstrual eyeless pain during intercourse, pain with bowel movements and sometime with urination. I have had three surgeries to repair any problems that I had with the vaginal and pelvic area.

After being fed up with hormone treatments such as Lupron and birth control which did not help, and two laparoscopies that were six months apart I started to give up on hope and figured that I would have to deal with pain for the rest of my life and would result in me never having children I was told a year ago by my OB/GYN "have a child and then we will remove everything to prevent it from ever occurring again." After trying to conceive for a year and preparing myself to throw away my dreams of finishing my college education I started to do my research. I found Dr. Tamer Seckin off of the internet I prayed that he would be the answer to all my problems. I realized that he was not covered under my insurance and worried about how I was going to go about my treatment with him.

Before I began to get sick to the point that I could not carry three jobs under my belt one as a nursing assistant at NSLIJ Huntington Hospital as a nursing assistant (I still work with) and two private cases I worked as a hospice aide I had enough to pay for school and maintain payments for my health care providers. So as you can see I have spent most of my young adulthood taking care of people and I very much love my profession. I always take care of people no matter the cost and I would put myself last. When I came to the conclusion that I was not going to be able to afford to go through with the surgery that needed to be done by Dr. Seckin I had went back to my regular OB/GYN immediately and discussed the pros and cons of the operation that was going to do but I would go through the same issues six months later and needless to say I was not happy to hear that. I gave Dr. Seckin another call to see if he could work with me then his wonderful secretary Kim had said "Dr. Seckin is going to waive the cost of your surgery. He really wants to help you and not see you go through the same issues six months from now." I was not expecting something like this to happen to me. I’m used to being jerked around and unfortunately, I don’t have people in my life to help me financially.

From the moment that I stepped foot into Dr. Seckin’s office, I will admit I did feel a bit out of place but that two lovely females of his office Kim and Lucy made me feel at ease. Dr. Seckin welcomed me with open arms and got right to the point and did not beat around the bush. My laparoscopy took place Friday October 7th I am very GRATEFUL and I APPRECIATE all of his help along with the staff of his office and the staff of Lenox Hill Hospital. I hope for a speedy recovery so I can return back to school to further my education in nursing and return to work November 1st.

I will always hold Dr. Seckin in my heart for he is the one that I did not give up on me and gave me an equal opportunity that his paying patients would get. I have also made a Youtube video thanking the EFA and Dr. Seckin for all of your help. Once again thank you so much.

Sincerely,
Jessica

    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 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.

    Dr. Seckin is one of the best endometriosis surgeon. Every time I go to the office, he really listens to me and is always concerned about my issues.

  • Rebecca Black

    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…

  • 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…
