You can try a google search or ask your doctor if there is someone in the area that they recommend. If they don't have recommendations, you could call local urologists to see if any of them can perform the procedure. Is there a specific reason you only are looking in your area? I'd highly recommend looking all over because some of the doctors that specialize in VRs offer specials from time to time, so you might get a better deal looking outside of your local area.

You can also read through the posts here to see which doctor others here have used. Good luck. (I wish I could give you a list, but I'm on the TR side of things.)

I did some quick research of the boards here to see which doctor the women here have had experience with. It seems like the most mentioned doctor's here are:

Dr. Wilson in Muskogee, OK for $1,700
Dr. Roeder in New Braunfels, TX for about $3,200 (depending on your exact situation)

Some others I have found are:

Dr. Gatewood in Bradenton, Florida for $7,000 - $7,850
Dr. Bastuba in San Diego, CA for $7,100
Dr. Werthman in Beverly Hills, CA for $6,500 - $7,500
Dr. Buch in Frisco, TX for $8,300 - $8,700

Here's a site that allows you to search for doctor's by state so you can get a better idea of what's in your area: http://www.vasectomy.com/DoctorSearch.asp?siteid=R

I hope this helps some ladies!
