Phase 2 of Watson Clinic Highlands Now Open


The second phase of the popular Watson Clinic Highlands campus has completed construction, and is now open for patient appointments. This 39,000 square foot addition more than doubles the size of the facility, and delivers more doctors, more specialties, and greater convenience than ever before for patients in south Lakeland, Bartow and surrounding communities.

“Now more than ever with the opening of Phase 2, Watson Clinic Highlands is a full-service medical campus where patients of all ages can find the comprehensive and diverse healthcare experience they deserve,” says Watson Clinic Managing Partner and practicing nephrologist Steven G. Achinger, MD.

With this second facility on the Watson Clinic Highlands campus, patients can expect the following new or expanded services:

A number of Watson Clinic physicians have relocated their practices to the expanded facility effective immediately. Orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist Dr. Marc Volpe and pediatrician Dr. Varsha Ghayal have moved their offices to the new Highlands facility on a full-time basis. Meanwhile, orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist Dr. Prashant Desai will devote four days a week to his practice at Highlands while maintaining one day a week for his practice at our Main location in Lakeland.

Watson Clinic Highlands will announce additional specialties and services in the coming months. Watson Clinic Highlands is located at 2300 E. County Road 540A in south Lakeland. For more information and to schedule an appointment, call 863-607-3333.
