What Our Patients Are Saying

Dr. Efe is the best. Courteous, capable, responsive. This was our first experience with Direct Primary Care (DPC) and I couldn't be more pleased. Unfettered access, transparent pricing, same or next day appointments, excellent coordination of care, more face time with the doctor - everything I hoped it would be. Birmingham people - do yourselves a favor - look in to Birmingham Direct Primary Care and Dr. Efe Sahinoglu. He keeps every promise, and I don't feel like just a name on a chart.

I was going to Dr Efe for 6 months while living in Birmingham, AL and he was a fantastic doctor. Very professional and personal. If you are looking for a doctor who will ask the right questions and not rush you out the door in order to get to the next patient, I highly Recommend scheduling your next dr visit with him.

All in one. I get treated like a patient not as a check. He takes his time to listen and doesn't rush. I can also get my medication before I leave the office. I would recommend BDPC Dr. Efe to anyone. Low monthly payments, ability to contact the Dr via text, email or phone is fantastic.

Great visit with Dr. Efe. I feel like he’s going to be a fantastic provider based of his attention to what I had to say, detailed questions and length of visit. I definitely didn’t feel like I was rushed like I do at every other doctor’s office.

Had to be seen AGAIN this morning bc my ear infection and sinus infections still havent cleared up. This was my first time seeing Dr. Sahinoglu (aka Dr. Efe) but it was a great experience! If you dont have any health insurance google direct primary care in your area. Its a monthly membership fee and no copays or extra money for office visits. You get unlimited visits and they have an inhouse pharmacy so the prescriptions are just a few dollars. They do wellness visits, sick visits, pap smears and all sorts of things. Plus if you have to have things done with an outside entity like blood draw labs its cheap. For example im going next week to get my sugar levels and thyroid tested and some other stuff and its less than $15. And my prescriptions he gave me today (Z pack, a nasal spray, and some steroid pills) were all just $9!!!! I spent $65 on meds last week that the urgent care gave me plus $175 to be seen. I could have saved $170!!!! The Direct Primary Care (DPC) concept is awesome and is designed to keep costs down for the patients and allows doctors to spend as much time with patients as they want to and not be dictated to about how they will treat patients.

I have been a member of Birmingham Direct Primary care for several months and I have been more than happy with their services. As a realtor, fairly priced health insurance is hard to come by. You pay month to month for a price of 79$. You cannot beat it. I have found this concierge style of health care to be a great option for me. Dr. Efe is always a text or call away and gets back with to me quickly. The staff, facility, and level of healthcare are quality and has an individual approach to it. I feel doc knows me personally. This is a practical way to see a doctor, which is really appealing to me as a self employed guy. I highly recommend Dr. Efe and his practice, as they have much to offer! If you struggle with insurance, or need a general doctor , these are your guys

Dr. Efe Sahinoglu has been a great help to me over the last few months. I had a cardiac issue and wound up going to him first before his referring me to a cardiologist, and he really helped me understand what was going on. And being able to contact him by email or text has been wonderful in the weeks following a procedure to correct the cardiac issue. I highly recommend him - a compassionate AND skilled doctor.
