For Obstetrics and Gynecology
- Choosing a physician to oversee the prenatal care and birth of your child is a crucial decision. Take the first steps to a healthy baby by choosing the most experienced, skilled and compassionate obstetricians who will stand by your side during every phase of your pregnancy.
 
Our obstetrics team works together, assuming different rotations of hospital delivery coverage while at Lakeland Regional Medical Center. You have the option of meeting with each of the obstetricians during the course of your prenatal care. All physicians have access to your medical records – allowing for individualized care when you arrive at the hospital for delivery.
 
When deciding on a provider for your gynecologic care, look to Watson Clinic’s team for years of experience and superior surgical capabilities. We perform a full range of treatments from annual evaluations and pap smears to hysterectomies and complex surgical procedures.

The team you trust for exceptional services:
  • High risk pregnancy.
  • Continuity of care between all obstetricians.
  • One of the largest and most experienced OB-GYN departments in the area.
  • The widest palette of female-driven services -- including a special program for urinary incontinence and bladder health.
  • Affiliation with University of South Florida’s In vitro fertilization specialists for on-site consultation and assistance with pregnancy planning.
  • The convenience of two Lakeland offices to serve you – one north and one south. Patients are active participants in their own care. Watson Clinic’s comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach to healthcare – from conception to infancy and adolescence through adult and senior years.
Ultrasound Imagery - The future of ultrasound imagery is available to our expectant mothers-to-be. Generally performed at between 28-32 weeks gestation, the 4-D ultrasound imagery will be digitally captured in all of its stunning clarity and detail. Performed in a warm and familial setting, our ultrasounds are designed to offer a profound bonding time between family and baby. The patient is given a CD-ROM record of the ultrasound consisting of both live and still footage, from which they can relive these precious moments for a lifetime.

Bladder Health Issues
- Many women may experience urinary or fecal incontinence issues as result of the childbirth process. This common occurrence is one that is treatable and often completely curable. Watson Clinic’s OB-GYN department takes the shame out of these dysfunctions and offers a comprehensive slate of services designed to restore a patient’s sense of relief and well-being. Our expert team offers versatile options in their treatment of such disorders, ranging from medications and biofeedback to diet therapy, nerve stimulation and surgical options.
 
Infertility Counseling - The magic of advanced medical technologies have allowed more women than ever to experience the wonders of childbirth. Certain health disorders and infertility issues no longer need to hinder women from participating in the miracle of new life creation. New to our slate of program offerings, Watson Clinic proudly offers women state-of-the-art In Vitro fertilization consultation in conjunction with the experts from University of South Florida’s IVF program. These procedures, in which the sperm and the egg are joined in a lab setting, are safe, discreet and inspire impressive rates of success.
 
Mammography - The OB-GYN department offers mammography referrals to the Watson Clinic Women’s Center, located just south of the Main Clinic at 1400 Lakeland Hills Boulevard. Designed with a welcoming feminine appeal, the Women’s Center offers the latest in digital mammography capabilities and houses a team of expert mammographers and women’s care specialists. All results are available through Watson Clinic’s electronic medical record system, allowing enhanced continuity of care between all Watson Clinic practitioners and the experts at the Center for Cancer Care & Research should any form of breast cancer be detected.
 
High Risk Pregnancy - A wide variety of high-risk pregnancy factors, such as a woman’s pre-existing health condition, genetic risk factors, or multiple births (twins, triplets, etc.) warrant consultations with our team of experts. We provide a broad range of services, from genetic counseling to state-of-the-art diagnostic tests, including advanced ultrasound for prenatal detection of birth defects.
 
Female Cancers - A Gynecologic Oncologist diagnoses and treats all cancers of the female reproductive system. Dr. Richard Cardosi utilizes robotic surgical technology for treatments of specific gynecologic disorders, resulting in smaller incisions and a faster recovery period. In addition, the main clinic location allows every resource to be within the patient’s reach including an on-site laboratory, radiology department, EKG services, pharmacy and much more.
