Vasectomy in Flagler County, Florida: Palm Coast, Bunnell, and nearby communities
Flagler County Health Department
The Flagler County Health Department has an excellent Vasectomy Program and may (depending on fund availability* each fiscal year) have Title X (Ten) financial assistance for men who qualify based on income and family size. The Flagler County Health Department partners with the Volusia County Health Department under the same contract for vasectomy services. Saturday morning vasectomies are performed for both Flagler and Volusia County Health Department patients by Dr. Doug Stein every six to eight weeks at the the office of Ruben Lopez, M.D. (Port Orange Pediatrics). For exact dates, see Dr. Stein's Outfield Schedule Page. To obtain services, just follow these steps:
Step 1.Call the Flagler County Health Department Clinic in Bunnell, (386) 437-7350, for information. (If the staff is not helpful, or if you leave a message and do not receive a return call within 24 hours, please call 813-972-1365 for assistance.)
The Health Department is located just off State Road 100 on Dr. Carter Boulevard (formerly Lemon Street).

Step 2.Make and attend an appointment at which you will receive vasectomy counseling, undergo financial screening, and sign a permit (consent) for vasectomy. You will be given a referral, and copies of your consent and authorization will be mailed to Dr. Stein's office.

Step 4.Twelve (12) weeks after your vasectomy, you will have to mail (mailers provided) a semen sample to Dr. Stein's office to confirm that the semen is sperm-free and that you may stop other forms of contraception.
