Lakeland, FL – The Pediatric and Orthopaedic departments at Watson Clinic are encouraging all high school athletes to schedule their sports physicals now for the 2020-2021 school sports season.
The Pediatric department is offering a full comprehensive annual wellness check when you schedule your sports evaluation. You will receive a full exam, vaccines, review of safety issues appropriate for your child’s age, and a completed form for your sports physical. Appointments can be scheduled Monday – Friday and select hours on Saturdays now through August at any of our four pediatric locations. These will be billed through your insurance, which most insurances cover at 100% without a co-pay as preventive care.
To schedule an appointment with one of Watson Clinic’s board-certified pediatricians, call 863-607-3346 (Watson Clinic Highlands), 863-680-7337 (Watson Clinic North Pediatrics), 813-719-2500 (Watson Clinic Plant City), or 863-647-8012 (Watson Clinic South).
Alternatively, Watson Clinic’s Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine department is offering a sports pre-participation evaluation (by appointment only) for incoming freshman and returning school athletes for a $25 fee at either the Watson Clinic Highlands or Watson Clinic Main locations. Athletes should arrive with their completed pre-participation form, which must be signed by a parent. School athletes who are not an existing Watson Clinic patient will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian to complete all patient registration forms. No photocopies will be accepted, and these forms are not available from Watson Clinic.
To schedule an appointment with a member of Watson Clinic’s orthopaedic/sports medicine team, please call 863-680-7214.
