There are two parts to your vasectomy appointment on the same day - an initial consultation and the surgical procedure.
- Initial Consultation: This is to check that a scalpel free vasectomy at GippSnip is the right procedure for you. During this consultation a doctor will examine your groin to check that your ‘bits’ (anatomy) are suitable for the scalpel free technique. (We don’t want any surprises when we are operating!)
- Surgical Procedure: If all goes as expected, your procedure is scheduled a short time later on the same day. Don't worry, you will be in good hands. If you choose to have the mild sedative, it is important that you have someone to drive you home after your vasectomy.
You will be at the clinic for around 90 minutes.
Appointments are available on Thursdays (Officer) and Fridays (Warragul) - you have the weekend to put your feet up and recover).
The vasectomy procedure fee is $750 (made up of a $150 deposit plus balance of $600 payable on day of your vasectomy (fees are paid before your procedure, no payment = no snip).
Medicare rebate is $215.10 (as of 13 November 2023)
Private Insurance: Please check with your private health insurance provider to see if you are eligible for an additional rebate. We will provide an invoice for your claim.
Booking Deposit and Cancellations (Please read carefully)
Our reception staff will contact you to arrange a $150 deposit. Please note the following carefully: If you cancel or reschedule your booking within 72 hours, your $150 deposit will be retained as a cancellation fee. To rebook, another $50 deposit will be required. It is extremely difficult to fill vasectomy appointments at late notice and by 72 hours out a large amount of work has already gone into your appointment (rostering staff, preparing rooms, communication via HotDoc, pre-vasectomy form review, phone contact, etc.). If you experiencing genuine circumstances for you cancelation please contact us to discuss.
Please be advised that GippSnip appointments can only be cancelled by the person who is booked in for the appointment/procedure.
