Prior Vasectomy No Obstacle for One Couple Trying to Conceive Thanks to Dr. David Fenig and a Vasectomy Reversal
After being married for eight years, Asif and Jodi decided it was time to have a child of their own. Asif already had a son from a previous marriage and had a vasectomy shortly after he was born. The couple’s journey to have a child began by exploring IVF. The facility they were going to recommended a specialist in drawing out the sperm for the IVF procedure. After a very long drive to get to the specialist and a very lengthy wait, the couple walked out and headed back home unseen by the doctor. A recommendation from the same clinic then led them to Dr. David Fenig for a consultation on a vasectomy reversal.
Couple Conceives Thanks to Dr. David Fenig
Sarah and Lawrence Williams' Story:
Lawrence Williams had a vasectomy reversal in January 2014, the couple conceived in September 2014 and their son was born in June 2015. Sarah Williams said:
“We had a consultation with Dr. Fenig two years after my husband’s vasectomy. From the start, Dr. Fenig made us feel comfortable and explained everything about the procedure and what to expect in regular terms, like he was a friend. We knew we could trust him from the start. My husband had the vasectomy reversal done in January 2014 and I was pregnant by September of that same year.
One of the best things about Dr. Fenig is his bedside manner; I’ve never seen anything like it in another doctor! He makes sure you are comfortable in your decision and after the procedure, he followed up with us every month, calling to see how we were doing and to follow up on lab results. He really cared. It was the most pleasant experience. Dr. Fenig was amazing.”

From Vasectomy Reversal Patient to Cancer Survivor - One Patient's Heartwarming Story
"I want to express my sincere gratitude for Dr. Fenig and his professionalism, expertise and high level of patient care. My wife and I met Dr. Fenig in the summer of 2013 when we decided to have children and I needed a vasectomy reversal.
After researching the many doctors in the area to find the right doctor, we decided on Dr. Fenig and scheduled the surgery for September 2013. Dr. Fenig's expertise and care made the surgery a success. The surgery went perfectly and there was very little pain and discomfort. But the story doesn't end there.
It was Feb. 2014, just 5 months after my reversal, I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. We called Dr. Fenig for his counsel, which he readily provided. It is difficult sometimes to tell by phone if someone really cares and is engaged in the conversation; however, it was evident that Dr. Fenig truly cared and was concerned by his tone and reaction. His counsel was taken, which was ensuring that we froze sperm prior to surgery, as well ensuring we were receiving the proper care for treatment. He provided all the information necessary to get this done.
We fast forward just over two years and my bride and I are expecting a beautiful baby due December 2016, and I am a cancer survivor. I have had many medical professionals assist me with my care over the years. Dr. Fenig's level of care is by far the best. He calls to check in to make sure all is well. He speaks to you as a person not a patient and in a manner that is easily understood. He is compassionate. I believe whole heartedly in customer care and Dr. Fenig exemplifies this."

Outstanding Bedside Manner Makes Difference
“Dr. Fenig is a very thorough and highly-qualified doctor who has an outstanding bedside manner. He treats his patients with respect and sincerity. His practices are patient driven and he’s very caring.
As an example, during my scheduled surgery, the procedure was delayed by two and a half hours. While I was in the prep area waiting, Dr. Fenig came to see me and sat with me, talked to me and asked me if I wished to come back so I didn’t have to be kept waiting any longer. While it was nice that he gave me that option, I decided to stay for the surgery and he stayed well after hours to perform my procedure, which demonstrates his dedication to his patients.
Follow ups with Dr. Fenig are always exceptional as well. He calls me after each visit to provide me with results of tests and feedback. But what strikes me is that Dr. Fenig calls me personally; he doesn’t have his nurse or assistant call me. It’s always him on the phone, even if it’s at night after hours, which is uncommon for most doctors. My experience with Dr. Fenig has been excellent.”

At Wit’s End, One Patient Finally Finds Relief for Chronic Testicular Pain
Chris Miller almost lost hope that he’d ever be free of chronic testicular pain by the time he found his way to Chesapeake Urology Associates. He’d been in agony for close to one year following colon surgery. Although the surgery was a success, he was left with pain that doctors had not even come close to accurately diagnosing and treating.
“I was extremely desperate,” described Chris, who suspected his problem stemmed from the pain of the catheter inserted during the operation, which had been done at a world-famous academic medical center.

Radio Campaign Leads Patient to Cure for Chronic Testicular Pain
Chris D., age 39, credits Chesapeake Urology’s radio ad campaign for leading him to the right physicians to cure the chronic testicular pain that he suffered for nine months. “I have a high tolerance for pain, but this felt like I was being crushed or squeezed most of the time,” describes Chris.
The pain was intolerable and came on suddenly one day in October 2011. He was startled and puzzled. There was no injury or incident that had caused the pain. His general physician recommended he see a urologist and suggested a couple of physicians. Chris chose a urologist at Chesapeake Urology because he was impressed with what he’d heard on Chesapeake Urology’s radio ads.

Patient Leonard Harper Says Dr. Fenig Changed his Life, Relieved Symptoms of Enlarged Prostate
"Dr. Fenig has changed my whole outlook on life, and I’m 70 years old!"
"I was diagnosed with an enlarged prostate by Dr. Fenig. For years I had been on different medications that would help my urine flow but it got to a point that without the medication, I couldn’t urinate. It was pretty miserable. I was up five or six times a night to go to the bathroom and then had trouble falling back to sleep. When you don’t get the proper amount of sleep it takes its toll on you. I was tired all the time, had no energy to get up and go and my sexual desire was at an all-time low. I’m an semi pro golfer as well so I travel for tournaments and it got to the point where I was too lethargic to enjoy golf, to work and do the things I’ve always enjoyed doing.
When I went to see Dr. Fenig, he talked to me about my symptoms, took tests and told me about the Greenlight Laser surgery, a procedure that could change things for me and be effective for treating my enlarged prostate. I soon decided to have the surgery, which went well. A few months after the surgery, I was feeling so good! Now, I only get up once or twice a night to go to the bathroom and have no trouble urinating. I get a full night’s sleep and now have a lot of energy to do the things I love. And, my sexual drive is back. This surgery has given me a positive outlook on life.
From day one, I knew Dr. Fenig was there to help me. He’s a very caring doctor who is very concerned about his patients. He knows what he’s doing and what to do to help his patients. In fact, he has changed my life!"

Incontinence a Thing of the Past Thanks to the Male Urethral Sling
When Edwin Hernandez had the Greenlight Laser procedure performed by another doctor, he developed stress incontinence and had to wear absorbent pads because of urine leakage that was bothersome. In 2013, Mr. Hernandez saw Dr. Fenig who recommended the placement of a male urethral sling to remedy his urinary incontinence. Today, Mr. Hernandez no longer lives with urinary incontinence and is leak-free. Mr. Hernandez states, “Before I saw Dr. Fenig, I used to have urine leakage. But since seeing Dr. Fenig and having the urethral sling placed, my leakage has stopped. Dr. Fenig is wonderful. He explained everything to me very thoroughly and I’ve been very happy with him as my doctor.”
