About Dr. Efe Sahinoglu, M.D.

Efe Sahinoglu, MD, is a full board certified family medicine and obesity medicine physician. He is from Montgomery, Alabama. He attended Auburn University (Auburn, Alabama), finished his bachelor’s in chemical engineering with honors, and worked as an engineer before attending medical school at the UAB School of Medicine in Birmingham, AL. Afterwards Dr. Sahinoglu completed his family medicine residency at University of Alabama Family Medicine Residency Program. 

Having spent the past 20 years in Alabama, Dr. Sahinoglu wanted to stay in Alabama and serve its residents. As he was introduced to the direct primary care model of practice in Fall 2017, he realized this model would allow him to provide quality primary care the way he always envisioned. He founded Birmingham Direct Primary Care in Birmingham, AL in Fall 2018. Since then Dr. Sahinoglu has been practicing the style of medicine that is most satisfying to his patients and himself. He gets to spend more time his patients, getting to know them and their concerns well. He is able to provide individualized care, whether that’s prevention or treatment, be available and accessible to his patients. Patients come to see him – in person or virtually via telemedicine – across Central Alabama.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Don't know where to start. I didn't actually see Dr. Efe, but my mom's friend was visiting and developed a weird swelling around her lips. I said she should go to the ER. No problem, she said she could text her doctor. TEXT him. Which she proceded to do. In about 20 minutes he texted back. Then they talked on the phone. THEN did a FaceTime so he could get a better look. He had her medication list in front of him and said he thought it was a reaction to her blood pressure medicines, and told her right there what to do over video chat. Her friend then introduced all of us to Dr. Efe, who was really cool about it. I think she saved a few hundred dollars in an ER visit right there. I said I wished I had a doctor that did that, and he texted my mom's friend a link to show similar practices in my area! for me!! The monthly fee for Dr. Efe isn't much more than it would cost me to see my own doctor WITH my insurance. I've already made an appointment to see another "DPC" doctor near me! Anyway I can't say enough about Dr. Efe, and my mom is even signing up with him

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

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.

There are simply not enough words to explain how wonderful Dr. Sahinoglu is. His practice has been a blessing and I highly recommend him. He is compassionate and knowledgeable and in this day in age when medical care and cost have become such a source of stress, he has relieved that stress during a difficult time. Dr. Sahinoglu provides quality and compassionate care that cannot be beat!

I HIGHLY recommend BDPC. Dr. Sahinoglu is extremely committed to the care and health of his patients and is great with kids! My daughter has never had a better experience with a doctor and asked to go back after we left 😂. I could not have asked for anything better in a physician. He really seems to care and is always available and I truly feel like my family and I are in great hands.

Dr. Efe Sahinoglu is the best! What a fantastic practice. Dr. Sahinoglu answers all of your questions without rushing, helps you to understand the process of figuring out what is wrong, and is just a super caring person. I wish I had found his practice years ago! Now I tell all my friends about him. How often do you find yourself bragging about your doctor? Yeah, he's really that good.

Dr. Efe is hands down the most kind, caring, compassionate, and skilled physician. My husband and I are thankful to be members of Birmingham DPC and are blessed to have Dr. Efe as our primary care physician. It puts our minds at ease to know he is a call or email away for all of our health care needs and concerns.

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.
