    review rating 5  Let me say, I was completely nervous walking in especially reading all the reviews on some places. I thought these reviews were fixed, they are absolutely not! Dr. H was awesome, explained the whole process to me and let me know exactly what was going on. And kept my mind occupied with good conversations. He was most definitely the right choice!

  • review rating 5  Was very nervous about having the vasectomy procedure done. It was a very good experience I had no problems and Dr. H was very nice and talked to me the whole time to keep my mind off of what was going on. No worries here they will take good care of you.

    thumb Mike Hardican

    review rating 5  Dr. H and staff are awesome. Procedure had very minimal discomfort if any and he keeps you at ease the whole time. We talked football and it was over in about 15 minutes. He thoroughly explains everything and walks you through expectations. For something I wasn’t really looking forward to it was actually a great experience. Highly recommend him. Can’t imagine there is anyone better. Week out and wouldn’t even know I had anything done.

  • review rating 5  I just left there. Great place! This has to be the best Vasectomy clinic in Charlotte, you are in and out in one visit. And there is almost no pain, they talk you thru the whole thing. It was done and I was like “that’s it” I can see why people travel from other states just to come to this place. Dr. H and his staff are great. So I don’t know if the have an award for best Vasectomy clinic in Charlotte but this place gets it.
