Online Vasectomy Registration for Donald P Snyder MD LLC


Advantages

  1. Saves time - This is precisely the information that we have always asked each patient to provide on the day of his first visit. By registering online before your first visit, you will not have to fill out a similar form on the day of your consultation and/or vasectomy, unless your vasectomy is performed at a facility other than the doctor's office, in which case they may require that you complete a few of their forms.
  2. Accuracy of information - By registering in the privacy of your own home or office, you will not be distracted by other activity within our office on the day of your visit. You may also have access to medical information (prior surgeries, medications, names of doctors) that you may not recall on the day of your visit. Plus we can read it ... on the handwritten info sheets completed in our office, you'd be surprised how many 4's look like 9's and 9's look like 7's! This site is secure and your information is kept confidential.
  3. Peace of mind that there will be no surprises on the day of your visit because you are completely informed and prepared. In fact, so much is learned online that a preliminary consultation visit is not required.
  4. Safety - Pre-registration gives your doctor and his or her staff the opportunity to review your history before you arrive and to call you if there are any medical or social concerns, especially important for those patients who choose to have their consultation and procedure on the same day.

Instructions

  1. READ: To become more acquainted with vasectomy, please read the No Needle No Scalpel Vasectomy Page on Dr. Snyder's website. This page contains a complete description of the procedure and links to PDF forms that describe before and after care instructions. As the information explains, you should be sedentary for the rest of the day after your vasectomy and avoid strenuous activity the first day after (no yard work, sports, or lifting over 20 pounds). On the second day after, you may return to work if your job is not strenuous. Wait another day or two after that to engage in more strenuous activity.
  2. WATCH: We will also ask you to view this counseling video before your procedure. It is available here online as a small streaming video. We may ask you to watch the video at the office if you do not access and watch it here.
  3. SCHEDULING information: Dr. Snyder performs vasectomies on Wednesdays and Fridays only at his Indianapolis office. You can usually have the procedure done within 2 or 3 weeks of your registration, and sometimes even sooner.
