I realized that I should absolutely put myself in his very capable hands

I had known Dr. Seckin for years before I became his patient, some of my friends have been dealing with severe endometriosis for years, and it's because of them that I became a supporter of the EFA.  In August 2011, after having a period that lasted for six weeks I was diagnosed with a uterine fibroid and it was recommended that I have surgery.  It was then that a friend urged me to see Dr. Seckin and have him do the surgery.  While I initially felt like my condition wasn't "severe" enough for someone of Dr. Seckin's expertise, I realized that I should absolutely put myself in his very capable hands.  
I can't say enough good things about my experience. My surgery took place in November, 2011 and Dr. Seckin and his staff were wonderful throughout the entire thing. Plus during my surgery Dr. Seckin found that I, too, had endometriosis, something that I doubt many other doctors without his level of experience could have detected. This made me realize that, while my suffering paled in comparison to that of my friends, I did have "killer cramps" and some of the other symptoms that I know are signs of endometriosis. My experience has served to strengthen my support of the EFA even further, so that other women can have awareness and get the treatment they need!

    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,…

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. 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.
