Vasectomy in Orlando, Florida:


At Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando (PPGO),  vasectomies are performed every 8 to 10 weeks by Dr. Doug Stein, who uses no-needle local anesthesia and a no-scalpel technique. Vasectomies are performed on certain Thursdays. For exact dates, see Dr. Stein's Outfield Schedule. Patients may return to easy jobs (walking and driving are fine) on Friday, but men with strenuous jobs should plan to take the day off on Friday. The fee is $590. All patients receive a properly coded receipt that they can submit to their insurance carriers, where applicable, for reimbursement. A deposit of $100 is required to be scheduled (see below).

The counseling process can be done online by (1) reviewing Dr. Stein's vasectomy page, (2) viewing the online counseling video, and (3) reading the vasectomy info sheet or vasectomy info sheet Spanish version (this is a PDF file viewable with Acrobat Reader®, available here as a free download if you don't already have a copy of Acrobat Reader® on your computer), which you will be asked to sign prior to your procedure. So only one visit is required, but you will have Dr. Stein's office, home, and cell phone numbers so that you can always reach him if you have questions after your procedure. You will also be given a mailer, so that you can send a semen sample to Dr. Stein's Tampa office 12 weeks after your vasectomy to be sure that your semen is sperm-free. We also strongly encourage you to pre-register on our On-line Vasectomy Registration page. On arrival for your vasectomy, you will still have to complete a few forms for Planned Parenthood, but your registration with Dr. Stein will be complete. You can download the Planned Parenthood forms HERE, print pages 1-5, fill them out, and bring them with you. That way, you will have less to do on the day of your procedure.

To schedule, please call Dr. Stein's office at 813-903-1902 or toll-free 866-827-8463. Again, a deposit of $100 is required to be scheduled. The deposit is fully refundable until 14 calendar days prior to the appointed vasectomy date, non-refundable thereafter for either cancellation or postponement. The deposit can be paid by providing a VISA/MasterCard number to Dr. Stein's Tampa office (813-972-1365 or 866-827-8463) or by mailing a check or money order payable to Douglas G. Stein, MD to his Tampa office (Douglas G. Stein, MD, PA; 3000 E Fletcher Avenue; Suite 330; Tampa, FL 33613). The balance of the fee ($490) is due on the day of the vasectomy, payable to Planned Parenthood by cash, check*, or Visa/MasterCard/AmericanExpress.
*Note: PPGO uses TeleCheck to verify personal checks. If you have a history of bounced checks, TeleCheck may not approve your check, even if there are sufficient funds in your account at present. PPGO also does not accept starter checks or business checks.

If your vasectomy is covered by an insurance company with which Dr. Stein is a contracted provider, your deposit will be returned to you when we are paid by your insurance company. Itemized and properly coded receipts are provided, and these may be submitted to insurance companies with which Dr. Stein is not a contracted provider in an attempt to get reimbursement or credit toward your deductible. To learn whether your insurance company will cover a vasectomy at this site, please call your carrier and ask the 5 questions listed here.


Dr.Stein also performs vasectomies in Kissimmee, Lakeland, and Vero Beach, alternative Central Florida locations if the Orlando location or dates are not convenient.
