My husband had a vasectomy with Dr. Fossumand had to go back days later to hear he had a pierced artery. He could barely walk and then did not improve and had to return 3 weeks later to hear he had a blood clot from the procedure. Now 6 months later he still is not 100%. This was a nightmare and he was out of work for a month. I called to see if our bill could be lowered due to complications from the surgery and staff was rude and Dr. Fossum would not even talk with me. It was horrible.
