Vasectomy near Hardee County
(Wauchula, Zolfo, Bowling Green), Florida:

The Hardee County Health Department has a wonderful vasectomy program and may have Title X funding available for vasectomy. Their funds are awarded based on a sliding scale. You must be over 21 years old and wait 30 days after a consultation before you can have your procedure. Counseling and financial screening are done in the main health department clinic at 115 K D Revell Road in Wauchula, Florida 33873. Vasectomy services are then provided by Drs. Doug Stein and John Curington on certain "Vasectomy Days" (see schedule) at their office in Lutz/Tampa, and at their location in Ft. Myers.

To check the status of the Hardee vasectomy program or to make an appointment, please call
(863) 773-4161 Ext. 140
(If the staff is not helpful, or if you leave a message and do not receive a return call within 24 hours, please call 813-536-1430 for assistance.)

The Hardee County Health Department is located at the intersection of US 17 and K.D. Revell Road about one mile north of downtown Wauchula.

If there are no more Title 10 funds for the current fiscal year (July 1 - June 30), Hardee residents (or any Florida residents for that matter) may want to consider applying for assistance through the health department of a nearby county such as Hillsborough, Sarasota, Manatee, or Polk.

If you do not qualify for assistance, you may still have your vasectomy by Dr. Stein or Curington 30 or more days after a counseling visit for a fee of $400. If use of the Health Department service seems too cumbersome logistically (need for two visits separated in time by at least 30 days), you may have your vasectomy performed by Dr. Stein or Curington at their Tampa office or at Planned Parenthood in Lakeland or Sarasota for a fee of $590.
