Vasectomy in Tampa (Hillsborough County), Florida:

Hillsborough County Health Department

The Hillsborough County Health Department has an active Vasectomy Program with Title X financial assistance for men who qualify based on income and family size. Vasectomies are performed by Dr. Doug Stein in his office at 3000 E Fletcher Avenue in North Tampa.

Until 2012, patients would report to one of the six health department clinics (on the adjacent map and below) for financial screening and vasectomy counseling. But the Health Department has consolidated some of its services. More recently, all eligibility evaluations and counseling are done at the Kelton Health Center, 4704-B Montgomery Avenue, (19 blks so. of Gandy, 3 blks e. of Westshore), Tampa, FL 33616 (map below).

Please call 813-307-8015 Ext 6626 for an appointment.
Ms. Lesonya Allen is handling the eligibility screening and counseling. If you leave a message and do not get a return call within one business day, please call Clarence Gyden's direct line: 813-307-8082. If you leave a message for Clarence and do not get a return call within one business day, please call Dr. Stein's office at 813-972-1365.

Ms. Allen will refer you to one of four Suncoast Community Health Center clinics for a physical exam: (1) Palm River Road in Tampa, (2) Plant City, (3) Dover, and (4) Ruskin. The fee is based on income, so bring a tax return, paycheck stub, or other proof of income. (Most patients pay nothing.) Alternatively, you may have a physical at a walk-in-clinic at your expense. Bring the results to Ms. Allen when you see her for counseling.

At least 30 days after signing your consent for the procedure, you may have your vasectomy in Dr. Stein's North Tampa office. Please call 813-972-1365 to schedule.
