Featuring a team of more than four dozen specialists practicing from seven convenient locations, Watson Clinic’s family medicine
and internal medicine departments provide essential healthcare services to generations of patients throughout our community.
Specialists from both departments are often referred to as primary care physicians. A primary care physician provides continuous care throughout a patient’s life, with a deep interest in preventative medicine. By having patients complete specific screening tests, such as those for blood pressure, cholesterol and various forms of cancer, physicians hope to diagnose and treat patients at an earlier stage, thus helping to prevent other significant disease complications. In addition, primary care physicians offer a wealth of treatments for common ailments and injuries, and provide referrals to outside specialists when additional expertise is needed. These physicians serve a critical role as the patient’s most trusted healthcare partner.
Our internal medicine physicians only treat adult patients, typically beginning at ages 16 - 18 as the patient transitions from their childhood pediatrician. They focus on disease prevention, general wellness promotion and the ongoing treatment of chronic conditions. Internal medicine experts can be found at our Main Clinic
, Lakeland Highlands
and Plant City
These specialists have recently expanded their appointment availability to meet the needs of patients who require immediate care. If a patient requires prompt medical attention for a minor illness or injury, and they already have an established primary care physician, it is recommended that they call their physician’s office to check same or next day appointment availability.
For more information or to schedule an appointment with specialists from our internal medicine department, please call 863-680-7190 or for Plant City only, call 813-719-2500.
