Thank you Dr. Seckin, you are an amazing, amazing physician.

I met Dr. Seckin on referral from my reproductive endocrinologist back in the fall of 2009. I had been going for IVF, four times unsuccessfully. The doctors had given me a litany of reasons why I was not getting pregnant. The egg quality was fine, everything looked good, however, they suspected it was an autoimmune problem. Then they thought that my fiancé and I were genetically incompatible, we had testing for that as well. Finally, after the fourth unsuccessful IVF the doctor, when I was meeting with him afterwards as a recap, had said, “Well, you know, you might have endometriosis and maybe the fibroids are problematic." I had asked about this previously and they always said that no, no, no, you should be fine. It really doesn’t seem like your case will be problematic for fertility because of these reasons."

“Well, we don’t want to leave any stones unturned,"so he gave me Dr. Seckin’s card. I immediately called Dr. Seckin because I figured nothing else was working. I had already dumped $80k into IVF – yeah - still paying off those bills. I figured, well, you know, I have to see if this will net any results. So I met with Dr. Seckin. After going through my medical history, he immediately felt that yes, that both the fibroids and endometriosis were probably very problematic and causative of the infertility. He recommended surgery. I’m an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist so surgery is not the first place I really would like to start but at this point I was so frustrated and really felt like I had no other alternatives. After meeting Dr. Seckin, who I think is an incredible doctor, I felt very reassured. I decided that, you know what, this is… if I don’t do this now, I will never know. What I have been trying has not worked consistently and let’s have some trust in Dr. Seckin and see how it turns out."

He had told me to not try to conceive for about three months post-surgery. I figured okay I won’t be starting until March or so this year and to my great surprise I became pregnant in February. I had no idea because I really thought I was being careful. After two and a half years of infertility treatment you kind of take a little bit of risk because you figure at that point nothing is working. So, why now? Had I realized that surgery would have cured my problem immediately I could have saved myself two years of time and effort, $80,000 in IVF treatments, not to mention all of the medication that I have taken. You just don’t know, really, what the long-term effects are. It is just so exciting for me that at 41-years-old to get pregnant after so much effort when I wasn’t even trying. I mean… I was so caught off guard in a very, very happy and pleasant way that I hadn’t even checked for a week after my period was due because I really did not think it was possible that I could actually be pregnant without IVF.

Thank you Dr. Seckin, you are an amazing, amazing physician.

    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…

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,…
