The doctor did excellent work. My vasectomy took no time and healed quickly (so long as you follow the directions provided). My only complaint is the post operation instructions regarding sperm testing and future office visits was a bit lacking. I ended up having to just call the office for further clarification. After that call, everything was answered. The Doctor's work is excellent and I would recommend any of my friends to him.
He injured me. The day after my scrotal surgery, while recovering, I developed a massive neck & spine area spasm. My surgery healed quickly but the spasm lasted for months and cost thousands. It was incredibly painful, with shooting pain in my left arm, neck and back. Sleep was difficult. I couldn't look at colleagues while conversing and I couldn't use my left arm to drive. Commuting to work and home was an ordeal. Long after my groin pain was healed I was taking massive doses of NSAIDs to relieve the pain. I spent thousands on physical therapy. My theory? After anesthetizing me Safir or his assistants were clumsy when they flipped me for my surgery. I think my intubated face and head were left in a very unnatural position for my hour's surgery. I don't know this for sure as I was out cold, but something that day injured me badly and it was on Safir's watch. I'd be a fool to see him again.
I ELECTED TO HAVE GREEN LIGHT SURGERY WITH DR SAFFER AND WAS GREETED BY A COMBINATION OF WARMTH AND EXPERTISE THAT WAS MORE THAN COMFORTING TO ME. HIS TREATMENT OF ME, AND ALL PATIENTS IS AS IF, ALL OF US ARE FAMILY TO HIM, AND HE REMOVES ALL APPREHENSION WITH HIS CONFIDENCE GAINED THROUGH YEARS OF VOLUMINOUS PRACTICE
