Gentle Procedures Dallas is committed to providing an affordable, quality vasectomy surgery. We offer the no-scalpel, no-needle, open-ended vasectomy procedure to all our patients.
The cash-pay price for a one-time visit to the clinic for a consultation and vasectomy is $680. There is a $100 scheduling fee to book the appointment. The balance of $580 is due at the time of service. We keep our pricing reasonable so that our high-quality procedure can be affordable to all.
Dr. McAuliff keeps his fees low so the procedure can be affordable to everyone. He offers you “concierge” type care. You will be given his personal cell phone number at the end of the surgery and you will be able to text or call him personally with any post-operative concerns or questions. The staffs’ goal is to give personalized service by giving you as much time as it takes to answer your questions. We will work with you to provide you with the tailored services you need. Instead of requiring two visits to the office as many physicians require—one visit for the surgery consultation and a second visit for the surgery—Dr. McAuliff tries to be respectful of your time by offering only one visit to the office, making it more convenient for you.

No-Needle Anesthesia is Always Included
Dr. McAuliff employs the no-needle anesthesia, no-scalpel procedure for all vasectomies.
Nobody likes a needle in the scrotum, so no-needle anesthesia is pretty much universally preferred. You can see below how the air-jet anesthetic application reduces trauma compared to injection using a needle.
Vasectomy Fees & Paying For Your Vasectomy
When you schedule your procedure, there is a $100.00 non-refundable scheduling fee to book the appointment, which is applied to the cost of the surgery on the day of the procedure. The remaining $580 is due the day you have the vasectomy done. Please understand that the $100 booking fee is non-refundable under any circumstances.
Paying for Your Vasectomy
The cash price for a vasectomy is $680. That includes your initial consultation with the doctor, the procedure, and any post-surgery support during the healing process.
More Efficient Process
The staff at Gentle Procedures Dallas work together like a well-oiled machine. The clinic staff are conscious of getting you in right on time, no waiting. The process is orchestrated from start to finish to make it as easy as possible on you. If you wish, Dr. McAuliff can prescribe a mild sedative for you to take immediately prior to the procedure to calm your nerves. If you do take this medication, you will need to have a driver bring you to the clinic and take you home afterward.
Upon leaving, you will receive a post-procedure packet that has all the answers to the questions you didn’t think to ask, such as expected bruising, healing time, when you can go back to performing given tasks, what to look out for, and when to call.
The $100 fee to book your appointment is non-refundable under any circumstances. We have this policy for a couple of reasons.
We have this policy to help you to follow through on your decision for a vasectomy. Many men have vivid imaginations of what the procedure will entail and might even back out of their appointment except that the non-refundable $100 scheduling fee keeps them accountable to their appointment.
We also employ this policy out of consideration for other clients who might have wanted to schedule in the time slot that has your name on it, but they couldn’t because it was being held for you. If you back out, they didn’t have the chance to choose that date and time.
The $100 fee to book your appointment is non-refundable BUT if you cancel and reschedule 7 calendar days or more before the date of your appointment, the $100 booking fee that you paid can be applied to reserving the new appointment and will roll into the cost of the procedure on the date of the new appointment.
When you book your appointment and pay the $100, think of it as purchasing a surgery time slot that no one else can have. If you cancel, you give up your $100. If you decide to cancel 6 calendar days or less before the date of your appointment, even if you wish to reschedule, the $100 scheduling fee will not apply to the cost of the new scheduling fee for the new appointment because of the late date of your cancellation. In this case, you will need to pay another $100 scheduling fee if you wish to book a new appointment time.
Any time that you cancel and don’t reschedule or that you decide to be a no-show, you forfeit the $100 fee you paid for the appointment time. This policy is in place to encourage you to be certain that you are serious about scheduling an appointment for the procedure.
Please call us at 469-931-0684 to confirm your appointment for a no-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy.
We are available by phone during regular clinic hours, 9-5, Monday through Friday, and this is the best way to reach us for quick questions and appointments.
We offer the option of a single visit for consultation and procedure because that is what most men seem to want.
Can I Use My Insurance
We offer a cash price of $680. If you have health insurance and you believe it might cover part of the expense of a vasectomy, we can file your insurance claim on your behalf. Your particular insurance policy will determine whether or not the policy will cover some of the expense. Any reimbursement of your cost will be between you and your insurance company.
Because we don’t accept insurance as payment, we are able to be more respectful of your time. Most guys have a really busy, hectic life and we respect that. Most insurance plans will require that you make an appointment on two different days—one day for a pre-surgery consultation and a second day for the surgery. If we don’t accept insurance, we are able to offer you the opportunity for the consultation and surgery to be accomplished at the same visit. By not taking insurance, we can offer you the convenience of taking off from work for only one day rather than the inconvenience of taking off from work on two different days.
Here’s how it works at our clinic: We collect the $100 from you to book the time slot and $580 balance on the day of the surgery for a total cash price of $680. If you wish, we file your claim for you. After that you will be able to deal directly with your insurance company. If your plan reimburses the procedure, that reimbursement will come directly to you.
$680 is the max you will pay for a vasectomy with the advantage of the no-needle, no-scalpel, open-ended technique and faster recovery. If you want the best service and the most comfortable procedure possible, it’s a price worth paying.
If you’re thinking, “But I want to use my insurance”, you may find there is no advantage to using your insurance. You may find that your out-of-pocket cost required by your insurance policy is the same as our cash price. Your insurance carrier might determine that your portion of the responsibility, with copay and deductible, would be the same as our $680 cash price. If you want the convenience of a single visit to have the procedure done by the no-scalpel, no needle method, done by a physician who specializes in vasectomies, it’s a price worth paying. Remember, this is a one-time purchase, and the cost is probably less that the price of a set of new tires.
Why Don’t We Accept Health Insurance?
It has been our long experience that, prior to the surgery, health insurance companies often provide inaccurate information regarding an individual’s coverage for a procedure and how much a patient may owe. After the procedure has been completed, it is not unusual for health insurance companies to inform the physician that the information they provided during pre-verification was inaccurate. For example, prior to the surgery, it is not unusual for the agent to say a person is fully covered and give us a specific amount he has to pay. Several weeks after the procedure, the insurance company will then tell us they made a mistake, the procedure was not covered and the patient needs to pay more.
Our office is then put in the awkward position of having to contact the patient and ask for more money. Often these calls are not well received. We end up in the middle of the patient and his health insurance company and the health insurance companies try to distance themselves from the problem they caused because their staff provided inaccurate information. In this scenario, when we send the patient a statement, because the surgery is a “one-and-done” procedure and we never see the patient again, the patients often simply ignore the statements we send. Our office is then required to take the loss…even though we had nothing to do with the confusion.
We consistently have good reviews from patients. When we do have dissatisfied patients, it is because their health insurance company has provided inaccurate information and we had to become “the bad guy” to try and collect payment from the patient who believes we are being unfair. These patients often unfairly blame our office for the mistakes or delays by their health insurance company.
If You Want To Use Your Health Insurance
If you still think you want to use your health insurance then consider these 2 options:
- Option #1. If you go to another vasectomy provider to use your insurance, you will probably end up paying more. You will probably have two visits, one for the pre-surgery consultation and one for the procedure; you may wait 1 to 4 weeks before each visit. You may have an office co-pay for each visit. You may be required to attend a group counseling session before the surgery. You may find your plan does not have vasectomy coverage or you may have coverage but a high deductible. Your health insurance company may decide it will not pay and you will then have had 2 visits but you still end up paying the full amount plus you may be charged more for your vasectomy procedure because the average charge for a vasectomy in the DFW area is $1,200 and even higher throughout most of Texas.
- Or there is Option #2. Have your vasectomy done with Dr. McAuliff. You will have a great vasectomy done in a single visit with a skilled provider offering the most minimally invasive and the most comfortable vasectomy procedure possible, using only a half hour of your time. We can file your claim for you as an out-of-network provider and if your plan reimburses the procedure, any reimbursement will come directly to you.

REQUEST A VASECTOMY APPOINTMENT
Dr. McAuliff focuses on performing only a few out-patient surgical procedures. This means you’re getting a physician who is well-experienced in doing vasectomies. A doctor who practices doing a procedure over and over often experiences better outcomes than a doctor who does a vasectomy only occasionally while having much of his time devoted to a wide spectrum of other procedures.
Greater concern for your well-being
Your comfort is our greatest concern at Gentle Procedures Dallas. We know that our patients are nervous when they come in but we try to alleviate that. You will be awake during the procedure but our goal is that you feel no pain. The doctor starts with a numbing spray, followed by an anesthetic which some men describe as a “pinching” feeling but very minor, then you won’t feel anything during the rest of the procedure. During the procedure, Dr. McAuliff enjoys conversing with his patients. He likes to use this time to get to know his patients, what they do, and where they’re from. As he works, Dr. McAuliff will provide a lot of general advice for best healing.
It’s our goal to hold your hand during the entire process, so you will be at ease and well-informed. This is the measure of care that you will receive from our entire staff.
Does that sound like the kind of service you want to receive for only $680? For the top-level service you deserve, give us a call 469-931-0684.
