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.

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.

Imagine having a Doctor that when you show up for your appointment he is waiting at the door for you. He walks you into the exam room and spends 2-hours with you. The realize you can do that as many times a month as you would like and it only cost you $75 a month. This is exactly what you'll find at Birmingham Direct Primary Care. Add to that the fact that Dr Efe Sahinoglu is a gifted caring doctor and as far as I am concerned there is not a better option in Birmingham for a personal/family practitioner. I honestly could go on and on with this concierge Doctor business model because it just makes sense. I invite you to reach out to me through the comments and I would be more than happy to share more about my experience with this incredible Dr and his wonderful practice. UPDATE: After being with Dr Efe a little lover 3-months I've gone from Diabetic to Pre-diabetic (heading to diabetes free) Lost nearly 25 pounds, tightened my belt by 5 holes (Only one left). Blood work across the board is better and I no longer dread going to the Doctor. Not to mention the fact that it doesn't cost me an entire day and I actually get to spend more time with my Doctor than I have in my entire life. Things are changing!!! Thank you Dr. Efe.

Amazing Doctor and better human being! My son and I were traveling for baseball, and he rearranged his schedule to help us with his ear. So gracious with his time and personal approach. I applaud Doc for being a pioneer in Direct Primary Care and reminding us how comforting it is to have a personal doctor truly caring for your health.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
