Patient Information

What to Expect as a New Patient?

Welcome! As a new patient, you can expect an easy check-in at our convenient kiosk, eliminating time consuming paperwork.

Our medical staff will then assess the new patient with a complete history and physical, going over any signs and symptoms regarding the patient’s complaint.

After we understand the underlying cause of your health problem, one of our providers will recommend an individualized treatment plan that is specifically tailored to the new patient’s needs.

The Y Factor’s commitment to care means we want a urologist available to see patients when they need it. In order to minimize no-shows, The Y Factor requires a deposit for special procedures like the no-scalpel vasectomy, Shang Ring Circumcision, and other select procedures. This deposit will be applied to the cost of your urological services or forfeited if you no-show.

*100% of the deposit will be forfeited for no shows or cancellations less than 48 hours prior to the procedure. All cancellations must be via phone call and communication to our office staff. All cancellations or reschedule appointments greater than 48 hours before your procedure qualify for a refund or reapply the deposit to that later date.

Do We Take Insurance?

Yes, we accept all major insurance plans: Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, CIGNA, Tricare, PHCS and UnitedHealthcare.

At The Y Factor, we realize that medical care can be expensive. In an attempt to help you – our patients, we can also work with the “Out of Network” benefits of most health insurance plans, and we accept Care Credit.

If you have questions about your plan or other options, please give us a call at (832) 358-8600.
