Very compassionate doctor. Had a great experience with my vasectomy and it went just as he told me it would.

Got pregnant weekend AFTER being cleared! Doctor asked me if my wife cheated on me because it was unlikely I could have gotten her pregnant right after. I had them recheck, and they said it was like I never had one. Ended up having to have two vasectomies bc they thought they cut the wrong thing!?!...more
