Sometimes it's obvious when a trip to the emergency department is needed. Problems such as chest pain or heavy bleeding are clearly serious situations that require in-depth emergency care.
Many times the situation is less clear. Your illness or injury isn’t severe enough to require emergency care, or to endure the long wait times and high fees associated with an emergency room visit. But you don’t want to wait for a regularly scheduled appointment with your physician either.
That’s when Watson Clinic’s Priority Care department can come to the rescue. Headed by board-certified family medicine specialist Dr. David J. Remmer at the Watson Clinic Highlands location in south Lakeland, the department offers same or next day appointments for new and established patients ages 2 and up.
We provide treatments for a variety of non-emergency conditions, including urinary and respiratory tract infections, sprains, strains, various physical impairments, and much more.
Whether you’re visiting Watson Clinic for the first time or have been going here for many years, we can usually accommodate your care needs on the same day you call for an appointment with us.
Patients can also enjoy quick and convenient access to x-ray, laboratory and additional medical support tools as needed.
That’s not all. Watson Clinic offers additional options for fast and effective care that works on your schedule. From minor mishaps around the home to worrisome fevers and sore throats, Watson Clinic’s Urgent Care at Main and XpressCare at Highlands options can address a wide range of pressing medical needs that demand immediate attention.
Both locations welcome walk-in visits without an appointment for new and established patients. They offer expanded operating hours on weekdays and weekends, and are staffed by a team of highly skilled primary care physicians, nurses and assorted medical professionals.
