How to Choose a Urologist to Perform Your Vasectomy


Having a vasectomy is a big decision you can’t take lightly. But if you have made that decision with your partner and are ready to move forward, it is important to find a specialist you trust to do the procedure.

If anyone you know has had a vasectomy, ask for a referral -- personal testimonials will give you more confidence in your decision.

Here are some questions to ask and things to look into as you are making a decision.

  • If you know anyone who has had a vasectomy, ask for a referral. If they had a good experience, they will be happy to pass on the name of the urologist who performed their vasectomy.
  • Look at testimonials and reviews on the Internet. Most practitioners will have testimonials from previous patients on their webpage. You may also find other reviews online, like on Yelp.com. Sometimes this may give you a more objective view, but beware of Internet trolls that just like to complain about everything they can on the Internet.
  • Ask your primary care doctor for a referral. They probably get asked for vasectomy referrals all the time and have doctors they trust and recommend.
