Health Scene MagazineNew Names, Same Great Services

Watson Clinic is proud to offer exceptional healthcare services to every community we serve across Polk, Pasco and Hillsborough counties. For many decades, we’ve been honored to list the city of Bartow among those communities.

Our two popular Bartow facilities were designed to offer convenient care close to home for patients of all ages. Recently, we’ve rebranded both locations to eliminate confusion and better reflect the diverse range of services they offer.

The former Watson Clinic Bartow facility will now be known as Watson Clinic Bartow Building A. Located in Suite 100 at 2250 Osprey Blvd in Bartow, Building A houses specialists in the departments of family medicine, endocrinology, and podiatric surgery. Additional features of the facility include DEXA scans for bone density, electrocardiograms, dietary counseling, diabetes education, an on-site laboratory and x-rays.

Meanwhile, Watson Clinic Bartow Obstetrics & Gynecology is now called Watson Clinic Bartow Building B. This location is housed in Suite 201 at 2000 Osprey Blvd.

Board-certified specialist Dr. Tarek Garas and his team offer the specialties of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery from this location.

Additionally, members of Watson Clinic’s expert Nephrology department – including myself, Dr. Michael Achinger and registered nurse practitioner Angela J. Ritchea, APRN - also maintain an active schedule from Building B.

Yours in good health,
