Having an adult circumcision, good anesthesia please. not fond of needle sticks

Please give me good Adult Circumcision Anesthesia.  I am scheduled for a revision in mid march. If possible could you or your staff email me the Hotel information for your office vicinity. Also there anything to not make the initial shot(s) not so painful. Not too fond of he pain. Thank You for your time.

Dear Roderick,

Before adult circumcision, we will place EMLA (a numbing cream) on your skin for 15 minutes or so.  This is exactly what you ask for to mask the initial needle sticks.  Then we wait another 10 minutes, and pre-test your skin with gentle pinching to be sure you have good circumcision anesthesia.  We see it your way.  Anne and I went to a Urology subsection meeting in Las Vegas centered on ambulatory urological surgery.  The professor said :”the first thing is not to hurt your patient.”  We both looked at each other and I said, do you mean we spent $2000 to hear someone tell us not to hurt our patients?  But in truth that was the best advice he could have given us.  Please select the Daddy O Hotel, one block from our office.  Two can stay for the same priice as one.  Free breakfasts and coffee by Starbucks throughout the day.  This is the exception to the saying “docrors don’t make house calls anymore.”   I’ll see you in your room.
