New Vasectomy Location in Ft. Myers! Please click HERE.

As of December 1, 2019, Drs. Stein and Curington will no longer provide vasectomy services at Planned Parenthood. This was NOT our choice NOR that of Planned Parenthood. Drs. Stein and Curington have provided vasectomy services at various Planned Parenthood clinics since 1996. TRUMP has issued an executive order that because we provide vasectomy services under the federal Title X program, we cannot provide vasectomy services at Planned Parenthood for even our private (non-Title X) patients. Details HERE.
In fact, we retain all of the information below with the hope that the election of 2020 will result in a new administration, a more rational health care policy, and a return to provision of vasectomy services at Planned Parenthood. For now, patients are asked to see us at our new location in Ft. Myers.

Vasectomy in Ft. Myers, Florida:

Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida has a clinic in Ft. Myers. Saturday vasectomies are performed by Dr. Doug Stein or Dr. John Curington every six to eight weeks. For exact dates, see our Outfield Schedule Page. The fee is $590, often covered by health insurance or Title 10. A deposit of $100 is required to be scheduled (see below). If the Ft. Myers dates are not convenient and you don't mind a short drive, you may want to consider having your vasectomy at the Planned Parenthood Clinic in Naples.

The counseling process can be done online by (1) reviewing our vasectomy page, (2) viewing the online counseling video, and (3) reading the vasectomy info sheet or vasectomy info sheet Spanish version, which you will be asked to sign prior to your procedure. So only one visit is required, but you will have your doctor'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 our 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 Drs. Stein and Curington will be complete.

The Planned Parenthood Clinic in Ft. Myers is at 8595 College Parkway ...
... in a shopping center at the corner of Winkler and College Parkway, 6.4 miles west of Interstate 75.
View from Winkler Avenue.

To schedule, please call our office at 813-536-1430. 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 during the online registration process with VISA/MasterCard, or by providing a VISA/MasterCard number to our Tampa office (813-536-1430).

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 we are a contracted provider, your deposit will be returned to you less copayment 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 we are 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.

Financial Aid:

The Lee County Health Department (click for details), the Charlotte County Health Department, and the Collier County Health Department offer Title X (Ten) coverage for vasectomy services for men who qualify based upon income and family size. Vasectomies for any of these health departments are performed by Drs. Stein and Curington at any of their locations (including this Planned Parenthood in Ft. Myers) according to our schedule.
