Although anyone with a medical degree can "legally" perform a vasectomy, only Urologists are certified by The American Board of Medical Specialties and The American Board of Urology. Dr. Weissman is a diplomat of the American Board of Urology and completed over six years of specialty training after graduating from medical school. He and his associates have had the advanced training necessary to deal with the occasional difficult vasectomy or complication.
Please ask your doctor if he or she is certified by The American Board of Urology.
The relationship between doctors and patients is changing. Several things are happening at once. Patients now have access, via the Internet, to more and better information about health care than ever before. Informed patients are focusing upon trustworthy, credible sources of healthcare information. One such source is The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), a not-for-profit organization which assists 24 approved medical specialties in evaluation and certification of physicians. One such specialty is Urology. The ABMS is recognized as the "gold standard" in physician certification which means better care for patients.
