Important considerations before scheduling vasectomy reversal
Step 1. Complete Vasectomy Reversal Scheduling Questionnaire And Pay Scheduling Fee
Completing this questionnaire will assist us with scheduling your vasectomy reversal:
After completing the Vasectomy Reversal Scheduling Questionnaire, you will need to pay the $175 non-refundable surgery scheduling fee to submit your questionnaire.
You have 90 days to schedule surgery after paying the scheduling fee.
Be aware of the following important points:
- You will have to pay the scheduling fee to submit the questionnaire.
- You cannot pay the scheduling fee with CareCredit.
- The scheduling fee is non-refundable.
- If you don’t schedule within 90 days of submitting the questionnaire then you will have to resubmit the questionnaire and repay the scheduling fee.
- Most men are candidates for vasectomy reversal surgery. On rare occasions, after a more extensive phone scheduling interview, we may determine you are not a safe candidate for outpatient surgery under general anesthesia. On these rare occasions, we may decline to accept you as a patient. Your scheduling fee will not be refunded.
Most patients will be candidates for reversal. If you have questions about your health history you should call our office and discuss before submitting the scheduling questionnaire.
Step 2. Scheduling phone call
After completing the Vasectomy Reversal Surgery Scheduling questionnaire and paying your scheduling fee, a nurse will call you within two business days to conduct a health interview and schedule your surgery.
It is important to provide a thorough, detailed health history when you speak to the nurse. Providing inaccurate health history or withholding important health information will result in cancellation or rescheduling of your appointment and forfeiture of surgery fees.
During your scheduling phone call, the scheduling nurse will obtain a comprehensive health history and also conditionally confirm your date of surgery. The phone health interview should take less than 20 minutes to complete.
Preoperative lab testing
Preoperative lab testing is not usually required for most vasectomy reversal patients. Depending on your medical history, preoperative testing may be required.
If preoperative testing is required, the nurse will inform you of this during your phone scheduling interview. If your surgery is within the next 90 days, you should have any additional preoperative lab testing performed within 48 hours of scheduling vasectomy reversal. The scheduling nurse will send an order to any lab of your choosing using the information you provided when you called to schedule your appointment.
Step 3. Return signed confirmation letters
After the phone interview is completed the nurse will electronically send your surgery documents by email. These documents can easily be signed and returned electronically to our office.
You will need to read through the documents. Sign and date each of the signature pages and return these documents electronically within 24 hours.
Step 4. Pay surgery fee
Submit payment of your full surgery fee within 24 hours via MasterCard, VISA, or Discover or through a bank-to-bank wire transfer. You may also send a cashier’s check or money order by overnight mail.
- Most patients will find bank-to-bank wire the most convenient and most cost effective way to send payment. You will be sent wire instructions at the time of scheduling.
- Payments submitted by credit card will be subject to an additional processing fee.
If you are financing your surgery you should arrange this with the financing company before you start scheduling. In many cases the financing company will send payment to our office separately and before your surgery. You will need to notify our office if you are financing your surgery.
Your surgery date cannot be confirmed until your surgical documents have been electronically signed and returned and your full payment has been received.
