I was extremely hesitant at circumcision as I didn’t want my baby to feel any pain. On the day of the circumcision I was so nervous but Dr and his staff made me feel so at ease and the entire process was explained so thoroughly.

To my surprise my baby Ari didn’t even cry, felt no pain and had an amazing recovery. He shed more tears with his first vaccinations than he did with his circumcision.

I couldn’t recommend Dr Varjavandi and his team more highly.

Martine D., Bowral, March 2016

In the lead up, we felt a bit anxious – it was his first journey into the real world and it’s something you definitely want to get right the first time.

Before and on the day, Dr V. was very reassuring and took the time to explain everything to us. It was a super quick and successful procedure.

We were able to be with our son while the procedure happened, and Dr V. also accommodated a Rabbi and grandparents to be there for this auspicious occasion in his young life.

After the procedure, Dr Vincent would always answer our questions immediately whenever we had concerns – he was only ever a text away.

The end result is a fantastic cosmetic appearance!

We would recommend anyone who loves their precious baby boy to go see Dr V. for this once in a lifetime procedure.

Adam and Anna M., July 2016

We chose to have our son circumcised at 8 days to fulfill a religious obligation.

Dr Varjavandi’s attention, care and skill made this stressful experience for new parents completely manageable.

Dr Varjavandi was incredibly approachable, compassionate and calming. He made himself available for pre and post questions (no matter how small).

The outcome was amazing and our son healed quickly and easily.

Dr. Varjavandi really is the best. We can’t thank him enough and recommend him unreservedly.

Tarryn L., Darlinghurst, July 2017

As first time parents we were somewhat anxious about circumcision but after meeting with Dr Varjavandi we knew our baby boy was in safe hands.

Dr Varjavandi has a very calm, reassuring and caring manner and we found him to be a pleasure to deal with. He was generous with his time and took the time to explain the process to us from start to finish.

The procedure was completed in a very short period of time with minimal fuss and the outcome was fantastic. The procedure appeared to be pain free with our bub experiencing little discomfort during and after the procedure.

Our experience with Dr Varjavandi was excellent and I would highly recommend him to any parent considering having their baby boy circumcised.

Jon and Hayley S., Kensington, August 2017

My family’s experience with Dr Varjavandi was extremely positive and knew that we were in good hands from the moment we met him.

He performed a procedure on my son and took a lot of time to explain the procedure in detail and make sure that my husband and I were comfortable prior to the procedure taking place.

Afterwards, the healing process was fantastic and my husband and I both felt that we had made the right decision in taking our son to Dr Varjavandi. He also offered for us to contact him personally if we had any questions or concerns in the days after the procedure. My husband and I felt extremely comforted in knowing we could reach out for assistance if we needed it.

We would highly recommend Dr Varjavandi for his kind nature and excellent practices.

Amelia S., May 2017

We found Dr Varjavandi to be extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional. He gave us all the information up front to put us at ease with the process. The procedure itself was done in less than 10 minutes and we are very satisfied with the result.

We also appreciated being given the time to settle Luqman in the doctor’s office afterwards without being pressured to rush out the door.

We were very appreciative that Dr Varjavandi is able to perform circumcisions up to 6 weeks of age – other places we spoke to had a limit of 4, 3 or even 2 weeks which would not have been practical for us.

Overall we are very happy with our choice to have the procedure at Randwick Specialists. All the staff we dealt with during the process were pleasant and informative, right from the very first phone call in response to our email enquiry.

James P., May 2016

Our experience with Dr. Vincent was very pleasant.

His approach was extremely professional and informative, explaining the procedure from A-Z.

What we loved most about Dr. Vincent is his empathy and reassurance which made a world of difference as a parent, as well as his gentle and caring manner with our son Moses.
