Fast Access to the Care You Need
From the Desk of Dr. William J. Roth
A trusted primary care provider can be the cornerstone to a lifetime of good health. These Family Medicine and Internal Medicine specialists help patients navigate the healthcare road map through all of life’s journeys and detours. They empower their patients by keeping them up to date on preventive screenings, helping them manage their chronic conditions, offering effective treatments for common ailments and injuries, and accommodating swift referrals to other departments when additional specialized care is needed.
Sometimes, a primary care provider is essential for those surprise illnesses or other health-related matters that you can’t wait weeks or months to address. For instances like these, Watson Clinic is pleased to offer FAST access, a set of options that work with your needs and on your schedule. For patients with busy schedules and pressing health concerns, we now offer same-day and next-day appointment availability. Here’s how it works:
  • Call 863-680-CARE (863-680-2273)
  • Ask the scheduler for a FAST Access appointment.
  • Get the care you need on that same day or the next with the first available family medicine or internal medicine physician or provider.
For more details on this service, visit Looking for even faster access to care? Our three walk-in locations – Urgent Care Main, Urgent Care South and XpressCare Highlands – continue to provide immediate care without the need for an appointment. These facilities are open during extended hours seven days a week (including some holidays), and they’re ideal for patients 2 years of age and up who need treatments for minor illnesses and injuries right away.

Yours in good health,
