I would like to welcome you to my practice, and tell you a little bit about our philosophy and about the vasectomy reversal experience with us.
The staff and I realize that the decision to have children and a vasectomy reversal, are big steps in a couple’s life and can lead to both excitement and stress. As a result, we strive to create a unique, relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the office that is unlike any physician’s office I have ever seen.
My office staff and I have have been together for more than 15 years, and we are dedicated to doing everything in our power to make this an easy and pleasant experience for you both. I will make sure that you receive the best in personal care: I personally perform all initial and follow up visits and can easily be reached after surgery, something that isn’t the case in many other clinics.
I believe that medicine and surgery should be practiced the “old-fashioned” way by giving personal, individualized attention to each couple. I make it a point to spend as much time with you as you need, to make sure that you as patients are fully educated about all of the possible options, procedures, alternatives and risks regarding a vasectomy reversal and other methods of conception.
Although we perform a high volume of vasectomy reversals every year, we do not “run a mill.” I only schedule one reversal in a day, so you can be sure that you will be my sole focus, and will get my complete attention. All my patients receive both my home and cellular phone numbers after surgery, so you can reach me anytime. I will personally call you and check on your recovery after the surgery.
I personally perform your surgery and place every suture myself. I have no interest in using your surgery to train resident physicians, junior partners, or in passing your care off to a less experienced associate because I am too busy.
This approach has worked very well for our patients and has resulted in our reputation as the premier place to have a vasectomy reversal.
As you perform research when you are thinking about getting a vasectomy reversal, you will find that you are able to access a tremendous amount of information; some honest and accurate but unfortunately much that is confusing and outright wrong. I hope that this website will provide you with a clear, complete resource that you can use as you search for the best surgeon to perform your surgery.
I’m extremely proud of the practice that we have built here, and of the friendly, experienced team that I have available to help me provide patients with world-class care. Almost 5% of our patients are physicians and we have acquired the reputation as the “doctor’s doctors”. People who can get their care anywhere in the world come from all over the globe to see us including: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Nigeria, South Africa, Samoa, Sweden, England, Scotland, Italy, Trinidad, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Egypt, Syria, Pakistan, Russia, Taiwan, Lebanon, Mexico, Morocco and Venezuela.
Patients trust us with their most personal and important problems because of the success we achieve and the atmosphere we create, combining skill, service, and compassion. I believe that the reason we are so successful is because we treat every patient the way we want to be treated: with great care, and at reasonable costs. We continuously earn our patient’s trust, and have grown our practice mostly through word of mouth from satisfied patients and their doctors.
I have consciously made an effort to keep the surgical fees reasonable (significantly lower than an In Vitro Fertilization cycle and many other clinics that advertise reversals), even though there are surgeons with much less experience and success charging more than twice as much for a vasectomy reversal. I understand that cost is a concern for most people and I want the opportunity of high-quality microsurgical vasectomy reversals to be affordable to most couples.
I hope that you find the presented information valuable. We look forward to meeting you, taking care of you and helping you fulfill your dreams of parenthood.
If you have any questions, wish to set up your initial consultation or to speak with me directly, please don’t hesitate to call.
