Hello Sir,
 
Thank you for inquiry regarding Pacific Coast Urology’s circumcision procedure. 
 
Dr. Pugach uses a freehand method because he feels it achieves a superior cosmetic result than with the old fashioned clamp method.  He has been in practice for over 25 years.  He estimates that he has done more than 1000 circumcisions. 
 
For patients without insurance, our current special cash pricing is as follows:
 
$100 for the initial consultation
 
$845 for Dr. Pugach's surgical fee
 
$1100 for facility fee (includes all surgery center and anesthesia charges) This fee is payable to the surgery center no later than the day of surgery.  They accept most major credit cards and cash payments
 
$2,045 - Total
 
 
If you have insurance, we are happy to check your benefits for you.  We take most PPOs and a limited number of medical groups for HMOs.  Please note that, while we are not contracted with any of Affordable Care Act Exchanges, we are happy to see you as an out of network provider.  You may be able to receive partial reimbursement from your Exchange.  I can give you more details when we talk.
 
Whether you are coming as a cash patient, or an insured patient who has a co-payment or deductible amount due, any portion due for your consult is due on the day of your consult, and any balance for your procedure must be paid in full for the procedure 14 days prior to your procedure date.  We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or a cashier’s check.  While we do not offer financing,  you can send prearranged payments in advance and once we receive payment in full, we can book your procedure.  You and I would work this out ahead of time.  
 
All of our surgical fees are inclusive - there are no hidden or extra charges and they include all routine post-operative visits. 
 
I hope I have answered your questions.  Please give us a call to book an appointment for your initial consultation.  We look forward to welcoming you soon at Pacific Coast Urology Medical Center, the practice of Dr. Robert Pugach, named as one of America's Top Physicians for 7 years in a row!
