Dr. Seckin, an extraordinary humanitarian and talented, passionate surgeon

In April 1999, I was diagnosed with IBS. Since then, I saw countless doctors about my stomach issues. Every diagnosis seemed to be wrong and every treatment produced no results. I was frustrated and resigned to living with this unknown malady. During my annual physical, my doctor recommended making an appointment with Dr. Seckin.

In April 1999, I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome ("IBS"). Since then, I saw countless doctors about my stomach issues. Every diagnosis seemed to be wrong and every treatment produced no results. I was frustrated and resigned to living with this unknown malady. During my annual physical, my doctor recommended making an appointment with Dr. Seckin.

That afternoon I called Dr. Seckin's office for an appointment expecting to hear the usual diagnosis of IBS or another gastrointestinal issue. But when I met Dr. Seckin, the whole process was different. I was shocked and amazed. Dr. Seckin is passionate about his work and it shows. He and his staff got to know me as a person, rather than just a chart. He explained to me that I had endometriosis and that unfortunately, it goes misdiagnosed for millions of women. I felt both validated and nervous. He thoroughly answered every question (with drawings included), and acted as more than a doctor; he also treated me as a friend. By the end of my appointment, I knew I was in great hands.

When I think of Dr. Seckin there is one particular moment that stands out in my mind. I was in the operating room, waiting for the surgery (my first one ever) to start, and felt a little anxious. Dr. Seckin leaned over to me, and said "sweet dreams." With those two words, my fears evaporated. I woke up in the recovery room a few hours later, with little pain and Dr. Seckin by my side. I was expecting to be bedridden for days. I walked out of the hospital (a little tender), amazing both my family and friends. After my surgery, Dr. Seckin and his staff continued to show how much they cared about my well-being by calling daily to see how I was feeling.

I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Seckin, an extraordinary humanitarian and talented, passionate surgeon, who truly changed my life. I realize there are millions of women out there suffering from the same frustration I felt. I hope they go to Dr. Seckin and experience the same happiness I have found.

    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…
