Due to the nature of this procedure, I was a hesitant and nervous but Dr. Shaw's team helped clarify a lot of the misconceptions and misunderstandings I had. Dr. Shaw himself is an outstanding professional. Informative, sincere, thouroughland also a "member", having personal experience with the procedure, helped solidify my decision to continue and move forward. Professionalism at its best backed by a knowledgeable team.

Set up my vasectomy for a Friday and had no issues at all after the procedure. I'm a huge wimp but didn't have any pain or issues during or after the procedure. Trust in the process, follow the directions pre andpost procedure and you'll do fine. Takes 15 min or less from start to finish, including prep time, etc. Highly recommended.

I thought he was great. Well trained, fast, efficient. The only negative I have to say was that I wasn't aware of the discomfort the procedure caused. I went in thinking there was a shot given to numb the area, don'tbelieve that happened, but I didn't see what was going on. Still very pleased with the professionalism and work done...thus far.

Went so quick and smooth for a vasectomy, way better than I anticipated. I scheduled everything online with ease. The staff were quick with answers online, over the phone and in person, very friendly atmosphere. Was able to pick up theprescriptions ahead of the appointment which makes it that much easier. Dr. Shaw was professional, quick and it was pain free. Total experience I'd give two thumbs up. Very minimal pain afterwards, just taking it easy, only have the usual discomfort for the most part.
