Well it was finally time to get it done and after a lot of research I decided to move forward with a no scalpel vasectomy. Dr. Bellman showed up at the top of the Yelp list with a ton of great reviews so I scheduled a consultation. The office staff was attentive and responded to my emails promptly which is always a good sign. During the actual consultation Dr. Bellman explained the process thoroughly and answered all my concerns and I never felt rushed. I decided to go for the in office procedure since they are available on Fridays and it gives you a full two days before having to go back to work. Like others mentioned you are able function decently after 24 hours but I found the extra day helpful and work on Monday wasn't an issue at all. On the day of procedure Dr. Bellman and the nurse were consummate pros and you can tell they have done this many times. For the procedure itself I wore headphones and played games on my phone. I felt slight discomfort at times but really no pain. If you get past the mental aspect the procedure isn't bad at all. The recovery itself was as expected mainly the blue balls feeling and taking care of two small incisions for a few days. Frozen peas and tight underwear were great for relief and just plain rest. I was back exercising a week later and within a couple weeks it was like nothing really happened. After the procedure Dr. Bellman periodically checked up on me via email and made sure I doing well. I really appreciated this and after two samples given to a nearby clinic he gave me the all clear. I am happy with my decision and definitely recommend Dr. Bellman for the no scalpel vasectomy procedure.
My primary care physician called him on a Friday afternoon. I had a abscess in my perineum that was getting progressively worse. My scrotum was enormous and I was very uncomfortable. My primary care physician called him and told him I needed to be seen right away. My primary care physician then passed his cell phone to me to schedule an appointment. Dr. Bellman then told me to call his office and set something up. I called only to find out he was closed on Friday afternoon and that I could see him on Monday. I called his emergency number and he called and said I should let the antibiotics work. I believed him because he was recommended by my primary doctor, but my infection continued to get worse over the weekend. When I finally saw him on Monday he was "very concerned" about my infection. He performed a very painful procedure to drain the abscess and pack it. Perhaps it had to hurt to fix it, and Dr. Bellman's procedure was the primary reason I got better, but I shouldn't have had to wait the whole weekend. I think a good doctor would have either seen me or sent me to urgent care of the ER. My experience with Dr. Bellman was not good. If you really need a doctor for a serious situation, I would look for a different doctor.
