Dr. Wachs was very personable and knowledgable. I was about to get a vasectomy in about 15 minutes with no pain. He went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and was conversing with me the whole time to help pass the time. I would strongly recommend Dr. Wachs to any man who is interested in getting a vasectomy.

Not the best bedside manner. Office was really busy, which I understand, but he could have took a breath and smiled before he walked in and not complain how busy he was. To be truthful, he was blatantly rude. But, he did diagnose my issue. Not that there was a follow up plan, but there was a diagnosis.

Dr. Wachs is an excellent specialist. He understood the variety of issues I have with the bladder, prostate and pelvic floor muscles. He took the information I had from a number of different doctors and came up with a clear and precise plan to treat the pain. His plan will save time and money. This was my first visit and I scheduled a follow-up a appointment.

First time took me more than an hour to get it, but everything else was great. I went to few doctors before they never knew what's wrong with me (difficulty urinating), Dr. Wachs performed one test and knew what's wrong. He wrote a report about for other doctors cause I told him I'm leaving the states in a week.
