Lakeland, FL — Watson Clinic is pleased to announce a new office in Bartow devoted to women’s health and comprehensive gynecologic care.
Opening for patient appointments on Monday, October 3, Watson Clinic Bartow Gynecology will be located adjacent to Bartow Regional Medical Center at 2000 Osprey Blvd., Suite 100, and will be headed by board-certified gynecologist Dr. Tarek G. Garas and Nicole K. Rule, ARNP-C.
“We’re proud to offer a complete range of services tailored toward the gynecologic health of women of all ages,” says Dr. Garas. “These include routine gynecologic examinations, contraceptive management, and treatments for irregular bleeding, pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, painful bladder syndrome, and issues brought on by conditions like osteoporosis and menopause.”
