I had a vasectomy done by Dr Zafar. The check in procedure was smooth. Nurses were very helpful. He spent 15 minutes explaining the whole procedure. The vasectomy itself was a breeze. I spent the whole time in conversation and before I knew it the procedure had finished. I had no pain and after the procedure have done well. No hesitation in recommending him or his staff!
