Received a vasectomy from Dr. Kabongo. He was thorough with answering any questions or concerns that I had and was on time both visits. He's quite a funny guy and I appreciated his joking and humor during my procedure which lightened the mood quite a bit. Healed up with no issues at all. Would definitely recommend.
