South Central Cardiology
Dr. Watt has 20 years of experience in the field of cardiology and has been published in several medical journals including the Journal of the American College of Cardiology and the International Journal of Cardiology. A native of Thailand, Dr. Watt has lived in the United States since 1994. Cardiology is the study and treatment of disorders of the heart and the blood vessels. Cardiologists specialize in diagnosing and treating diseases within the cardiovascular system. These physicians are trained in residency in the field of internal medicine and continue their education with a fellowship in cardiology. A person with heart disease or cardiovascular disease may be referred to a cardiologist.
“As a physician, my role is more than being able to correct health problems,” said Dr. Watt. “I serve as a physician, an advisor and an advocate. Healthy living is an important part of cardiology. I feel that when I am able to help a person overcome their unhealthy habits, it is my most rewarding accomplishment.”
Dr. Watt serves as a non-invasive cardiologist. A non-invasive cardiologist helps patients manage and prevent cardiovascular disease such as high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, carotid disease, peripheral arterial disease, congestive heart failure, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.
“Prevention of diseases and advocating healthy living to the community is my goal as a physician,” said Dr. Watt. “Mississippians have a need for excellent healthcare, and SCRMC is very essential to meet these needs. As the leader in providing quality healthcare in the area, patients do not have to travel far and families can stay together at the time of illness.”
Dr. Watt states, “Laurel has the southern charm that my family and I love. The community is very close knit and there is a strong sense of caring for one another. Alongside Dr. Sullivan, I look forward to providing essential healthcare services to this community. I am proud to join the South Central family and carry this commitment to our community.”
