As a resident, he was awarded the prestigious AAP fellowship and also won an award reserved for the top six psychiatric residents in the nation. Contemporaneously, he won the UAMS award for “Outstanding Patient Care,” as well as the top award reserved for “Outstanding Achievement In The Field of Medical Student Teaching.” At the onset of his professional career, prior to taking over as Chairman of Psychiatry for Northwest Health, he served as Medical Director for St. Vincent Infirmary in Little Rock for 15 years and was voted by his peers to represent them on the Medical Executive Committee at both institutions.

Dr. Hyatt is routinely voted by his peers as one of the top psychiatrists in the state and has won accolades such as “Top Psychiatric Specialist,” “Patient’s Choice Award,” and “Most Compassionate Doctor” on numerous occasions, as voted by his patients and peers. Our state’s newspaper has also polled physicians across Arkansas as to who they felt was the top psychiatrist in the state and Dr. Hyatt regularly was voted to be the best doctor in his field, often being noted as the “Top Vote Getter.” Recently, he was awarded the accolade for “Top Psychiatrist In Rogers” by the prestigious group “The Leading Physicians of The World.” He serves in an advisory capacity for entities regulating the quality of psychiatric care in Arkansas and also provides consultation to facilities looking to elevate their standards to the level of excellence that Arkansans deserve. Since 2018, Dr. Hyatt has also been proud to serve as the team psychiatrist for all sports at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.

For years, Dr. Hyatt served as The Arkansas State Medical Board’s expert witness for all matters psychiatric but, in January 2019, Dr. Hyatt was appointed by The Honorable Governor Asa Hutchinson to the Arkansas State Medical Board as the 3rd Congressional District representative. Our proud 3rd Congressional District spans nine counties and has a population of greater than 782,000 people, which accounts for over 1/4 of our state’s population. Along with only 11 other Board Members, he is charged with protecting the safety of, and ensuring the high standard of care that all 3 million Arkansans deserve, as provided by some 6,000 physicians throughout our state. In just two years time, Dr. Hyatt was voted by his fellow board members to serve as Vice Chairman for our state’s Medical Board. One year subsequent to this, he was unanimously elected to serve as Chairman of the Arkansas State Medical Board, the position he now holds.

Dr. Hyatt is originally from Huntington Beach, California and competed in both collegiate football as well as Track & Field, where he still maintains his institution’s record for distance in the discus throw.

His hobbies include spending time with his family in Chicago – which has become something of a second home for him and his family, traveling, disc-golf and rooting for his beloved Chicago sports teams. He remains active athletically and trains with the world renowned coach, Aaron Kimball of the TCB Fight Team in Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay-Thai, Libre, Competitive Weight Lifting, and Tactical Firearms Training.
