Vasectomy in Sarasota, Florida:

Planned Parenthood

Vasectomy services are available at the Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida clinic in Sarasota. Dr. Doug Stein performs vasectomies here periodically on Wednesday afternoons. For exact dates, see Dr. Stein's Outfield Schedule. The fee is $590. 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. In fact, you may even print and complete the Planned Parenthood forms before your arrival to expedite your visit even further; just click for the Planned Parenthood Registration Form, Contact Sheet, General Consent for care, and Vasectomy Consent. Bring them when you come.

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 7 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, money order, or Visa / MasterCard / Discover. Personal checks are not accepted by this Planned Parenthood clinic.

If your vasectomy is covered by an insurance company with which Dr. Stein is a contracted provider, your deposit will be returned to you (less deductibles and co-payments) 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.
