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

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.

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

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.

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!
