Vasectomy Quality Council

2016 Patient Satisfaction Results and Post Vasectomy Results Now Available!

Vasectomy Quality Council LogoDr. Robert Pugach is proud to be a vasectomy specialist certified by the Vasectomy Quality Council (VQC). The mission of the VQC is to set vasectomy quality standards and to provide patient satisfaction data to men who are considering a vasectomy procedure. The goal of the VQC is to improve the outcomes and experiences for patients who have a vasectomy procedure.


About The Vasectomy Quality Council

The VQC is an independent accrediting entity that collects data from urologists who perform vasectomies. The data is collected so that prospective patients and payers can see the results from surveyed patients on a variety of patient satisfaction areas; including wait time, scheduling, clarity of information provided, comfort level during vasectomy, after-care instruction, and overall satisfaction with the doctor.

Vasectomy Quality Council Standards

  • No-Needle No-Scalpel technique is used
  • Local anesthesia is given via jet spray technology
  • California’s 72-hour waiting period regulation is adhered to prior to vasectomy being performed
  • Ease of consultation process and scheduling of procedure
  • Consultation appointments available within 7 days
  • After vasectomy a call is made to the patient within 24 hours and follow-up care is immediately available
  • Post-vasectomy semen analysis is provided at no extra cost
  • Money back guarantee …100% success rate

Vasectomy Quality Council Surveying Process

The VQC’s processes are completely transparent. Participating urologists query patients who have had vasectomy procedures to learn about their experiences and outcomes and publish that data. The survey information is processed by an independent 3rd party and the VQC does not edit or alter that information – what you see about an individual practitioner is the result of our vasectomy patient satisfaction surveys.
