Frequently Asked Questions

At Atlanta Baby Circumcision we use the Mogen technique, which is quick, precise, and leaves an aesthetic appearance. You can take a look at an animation of the procedure on our website if you would like to see what to expect.
The procedure only takes about two minutes. We will put your baby on a soft blanket covered with a sterile field. Most often, you can hold your baby again within five minutes of putting him down, including a diaper change, marking the area, bandaging, and checking that everything went perfectly.
We perform circumcisions for newborns almost everywhere, including at your home or our home in Atlanta.
We recommend performing the procedure in the first month of the baby's life, although the second or third month is also acceptable.
Yes, we can perform the circumcision for newborns on day 8 after birth if requested, and we also perform it on other days that are more convenient for the family.
Absolutely. We are available by phone, text, email, or video chat to address any concerns or provide any guidance you may need.
We recommend applying an over-the-counter 4% lidocaine cream such as Aspercreme 60 minutes before the appointment. We also recommend Infant Tylenol. This is at your discretion, however--many families skip the Aspercreme and Tylenol and this is perfectly fine. Since the procedure is so quick, we don’t usually give injections to numb baby, but we offer this when parents request it.
No, we do not use straps during circumcisions. Someone, usually mom or dad, gently holds baby on a soft blanket covered by a sterile field.
Our fee for baby circumcision is $500 at our home in Atlanta. If we visit you at your home, there is a travel surcharge of $2/mile each way. We believe this is competitive with any other provider of infant circumcision services and strive to keep it as affordable as possible.
We do not accept insurance for infant circumcision, but we can provide you with a receipt for billing purposes. Your insurance company may reimburse you for the circumcision or apply the fee to your deductible.
We don’t but we offer a discount for families who receive Medicaid or PeachCare.
Please check our website and Google Business profile for baby circumcision testimonials.
We accept cash, credit card, check, Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, CashApp, and most other payment methods.
Yes, we follow all Covid-19 safety measures.
  • Are you a Physician?

    I'm not. I am a Rabbi and traditionally trained to perform circumcision. Many of my clients are physicians, however, or nurses, midwives, members of the medical community and those from every walk of life! Several have supplied references on the testimonial page of this site.

  • Everyone! My practice is divided about equally between parents of every background who want a regular circumcision for their sons, and Jewish parents who want a bris milah (religious ceremony).

  • My expertise is in infant circumcision only. For adults and children in Atlanta, I recommend Dr. Moshe Shapiro, Advanced Urology, 678-344-8900, info@urologygeorgia.com. His work is excellent. (He does not perform circumcisions for infants; I only perform circumcisions for infants.) Please send him my warmest regards!

  • The fee for the circumcision is $500 (neonatal: six-weeks or younger; please be in touch for pricing for circumcisions for older infants). If I visit you in your home, the travel fee is $2/mile each way.

  • Very possibly. I've even been to Alaska for a brissos (circumcisions)! And if I'm busy or otherwise unavailable, I can likely refer you to a qualified Mohel who can.

  • I'll be delighted to spend as much time with you as you'd like, answer any questions, and help in any way I can.

  • Call or email any time. Right now is fine! Before the baby's born, or after--either is great. After the baby is born, earlier is better than later for scheduling and logistical reasons.
