Dr. Belt began his career as a faculty member of the University of Texas Medical Branch in the cardiology department. After a year, he moved to Washington, DC to train as a heart rhythm specialist. In 2000, Dr. Belt moved to Knoxville, TN, region to practice cardiology with a focus on heart rhythm management.
When he moved to Tennessee, Dr. Belt initially worked in a large, group practice in Knoxville, but decided the big-business formula of rushing through appointments wasn’t for him. He moved to Sweetwater in 2015 to open his practice, Robert Belt, MD, Cardiology, to provide both cardiology and primary care services.
Now, Dr. Belt takes his time with each patient, ensuring that he gets to know them, providing extra time for patient education, and supplying the highest possible quality of care. Patients receive medical notes geared toward patient understanding after visits.
