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.

What Our Patients Are Saying

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.

Birmingham Direct Primary Care, led by physician extraordinaire, Dr. Efe Sahinoglu, is a terrific organization that delivers outstanding care with a personal touch. The employees at my company love the fact that they can easily get in touch with Dr. Efe in person, by text or email. Participation in the Birmingham Direct Primary Care plan is a much appreciated, but low cost benefit that we offer our employees. It is comforting for them to know that their basic healthcare needs can get addressed quickly and seamlessly. I highly recommend Dr. Efe and his organization!

What a great experience! Completely different from a traditional doctor visit where you wait forever to get sent to an exam room, wait some more before seeing the doctor, and then spend less than 5 minutes with him / her! At Birmingham Direct Primary Care, it’s the polar opposite. No waiting...you’re back in the exam room and seen by Dr. Sahingolu immediately! That’s followed by a thorough exam by Dr. Sahingolu who asks questions and truly listens! And then you can get your prescriptions filled right there in his office at a fraction of the cost of going to the pharmacy saving you both time and money! What’s not to like!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
