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.

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!

    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…
