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

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.

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!

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.

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.

Dr. Efe is a great physician with a lovely facility that is bright, warm, and inviting. He is so patient with me and offers so much knowledge. His availability and attention to detail make me feel safe in his practice. Birmingham Direct Primary Care is a must have for people who want individualized care and don’t want to feel rushed.

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!
