Mountainside Medical Group Adds Primary Care Physician to Staff






Montclair, NJ – Mountainside Medical Group announced the addition of physician Gayon Hyatt, M.D., MPH expanding the group to 16 physicians. 


As a primary-care physician, Dr. Hyatt believes in the principles of wellness, preventive medicine, body, mind and spirit care, and personalized medicine for all. “I take the time to get to know each patient, and consider the medical care I provide to be individualized. I know that what might work for one patient, might not work for another. I also believe in fostering a relationship and listening to my patients. Like the World Health Organization recommends, I believe in the ‘total health’ of patients. We know that a more personalized approach has better treatment outcomes than generalized medicine.”


“Our commitment is to our community and its residents. We want to treat patients where they live and as we continue to see growth in our area, we grow our medical practices to serve those community needs,” John Fromhold, CEO, HackensackUMC Mountainside. “Dr. Hyatt will provide patient-centered care based on long-lasting patient-physician relationships that we believe is key to good health and wellness.”

Hyatt grew up in Paterson, New Jersey and earned her undergraduate degree from Rutgers University in New Brunswick. She earned her medical degree from St. Georges University School of Medicine and completed her internship and residency programs at HackensackUMC Mountainside.


“Doing socioeconomic research over the years helps me build my patient’s treatment plans today,” says Dr. Hyatt, who also holds a Master of Public Health (MPH) from St. Georges.


“I try to bridge the gap between race and medicine and have worked hard to address racial disparities in medicine that we often see across our country.”


Dr. Hyatt’s office is located at 1310 Broad Street in Bloomfield. The Mountainside Medical Group is taking new patients, click here to request an appointment.
