As an eligible staff member your medical options include a choice of two consumer driven products provided through UMR. They consist of the Watson Clinic HRA Plan or the Watson Clinic HSA Plan. For full time employees, the Clinic will make available health insurance coverage for the employee and the family. If you are part time, you can only insure yourself.
Watson Clinic will make available to you either a PPO dental plan or a Co-Pay dental plan. The PPO plan allows you to see either in-network or non-network dentists. With the co-pay, when you stay in-network, you will only pay a co-payment for services rendered. Our dental insurance coverage is provided through Met Life.
Employees are eligible to participate in the 401(k) portion of the Watson Clinic LLP Profit Sharing Plan effective as of date of hire. Employees must contribute a minimum of 2% to receive the full 1% employer match.

Paid time off is earned vacation time, personal days, holidays and paid short-term illness days in a single paid time off system. All PTO can be carried over from one year to the next up to the maximum allowed based upon service tenure. We also offer a PTO sellback program.

Good hours. Mostly great doctors. Good teams in offices. Does a lot in the community. Accepts most private insurances. Multidisciplinary claim Nicki. CARDIOLOGY TOP NOTCH!!
Pay scales. New hires making more than veteran nurses. Too much emphasis on making money that sometimes affects PT's negatively.
Advice to Management
Practice ur motto daily; Patient comes first.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Watson Clinic (Lakeland, FL) in September 2016.
Applied online and waited a week, received a phone call, invited for in-person interview, was given a tour of the facility, asked some basic questions and went over resume briefly, and finally received response "still interviewing other candidates through end of month" which basically is a formal way of saying they're not interested.
