The DrSnip mission is to make vasectomy simple, comfortable, and convenient for all.
We’re Here to Serve You
We think it is our job to make it quick and easy for our patients. We offer convenient appointment times on weekdays and Saturdays, and we can see you within one week. Scheduling is easy, and we will check on your insurance benefits, so you can plan ahead for any out of pocket cost.
Located near Seattle Children’s Regional Hospital, our clinic is situated to be convenient and comfortable for all of our patients, some of whom travel great distances to see us. In recent years we have attracted patients from 21 states, 3 Canadian provinces, and 9 countries on 5 continents. But most of our patients come from right here, west of the Cascades.
Regardless of how far they travel to get here, we value our patients’ time, so we offer both the consultation and the procedure in a single visit, which takes just about an hour.
The DrSnip staff remains poised to answer the phone every time, and make each patient’s experience the very best it can be. We strive to make the entire process patient centered and user friendly, whether scheduling an appointment or just seeking information and answers.

He is Board Certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, a member of the American Board of Medical Specialties. Kelly joined the DrSnip practice in 2013, after 16 years of performing hundreds of vasectomies in his own practice in Seattle.

Charles L. Wilson, M.D.
Dr. Chic Wilson is a Seattle native and graduate of the UW School of Medicine. For over 30 years he has collaborated with other interested vasectomy doctors to advance modern vasectomy technique. His contributions include the Wilson vasectomy forceps, the no-scalpel vasectomy training model and training videos, procedure workshops on No-Scalpel Vasectomy, Advanced Vasectomy Techniques, and No-Needle Anesthesia. He created the peer-reviewed AAFP monograph and video guide No-Scalpel Vasectomy for the Family Physician.
In 1999, Dr. Wilson originated the No-Needle Vasectomy technique. He authored the Vasectomy Chapter in the 4th edition of Pfenninger and Fowler’s Procedures for Primary Care.
In addition to private practice, Dr. Wilson is a Clinical Associate Professor in the University of Washington School of Medicine, where he teaches medicine and surgery to physicians and medical students. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Dr. Wilson founded The Vasectomy Clinic in Seattle on July 1, 1987, after ten years of focus on the best available methods of vasectomy and on new ideas for surgical innovation.
When we first opened the doors, The Vasectomy Clinic emerged as a unique concept for a clinic dedicated to fulfilling a specific need in the community, rather than to a surgical specialty.
Men could get vasectomies at that time, but they had to hurdle barriers, and they were frequently put off and discouraged by the complicated process. Their needs were unmet, and as a result, there were more women undergoing tubal ligation for sterilization than there were men having vasectomies.
For more men to choose vasectomy, men needed to know more about it. Fear and myths needed to be replaced with facts. They needed a place to go to get free information and to get care that works for them. It became our goal to meet that need and to raze the barriers to vasectomy.
Now, all has changed. In our Puget Sound region 40% of men get vasectomies, and women are relieved. Together, Drs. White and Wilson have performed over 22,000 vasectomies.
Our Brand Name: DrSnip
The nickname, “Dr. Snip,” appeared on doorsteps throughout the Pacific Northwest on February 23, 1995, in the banner headline of the morning newspaper, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The Dr. Snip article featured The Vasectomy Clinic and Dr. Wilson’s instruments and technique. The article, written by John Marshall, was informative, laced with humor, and served to stimulate enthusiasm about vasectomy. Many of our patients simply remember us by the Dr. Snip moniker and refer their friends to DrSnip.com.
