What people say about us

VIP Care in Tavares deserves more than 5 stars! Dr. Watson is truly excellent, as is Sandra Dawson, APRN. They always answer all my questions and never make me feel rushed, which is amazing since their appointments run on schedule and there is little to no waiting time. I don’t know how they do it! From the time Katy greets me as I walk in, I feel welcome. This is so much like the practices I grew up with here in Florida, where the staff felt like family. That’s important to me. VIP Care is the best!
