Dube practicing at Davis Medical



ELKINS — Davis Medical Center recently welcomed Dr. Nirva Dube to the hospitalist team that provides a continuum of care to patients during their hospital stay.

Dube comes to DMC from Camden-Clark Medical Center in Parkersburg, where she worked as a hospitalist since 2015 managing patients in the CVU and step-down unit as well as ICU patients. Prior to that, she worked as a hospitalist and with outpatient health care services in a traditional practice at Pleasant Valley Hospital in Point Pleasant. At Pleasant Valley Hospital, she supervised medical students and managed the care of patients with various medical conditions. She also has worked as a histology technician and teaching assistant.

A native of Haiti, Dube has had a love for science and law since childhood. She initially studied law, but quickly realized her main interest was in science and medicine. Dube earned her Doctor of Medicine from Medical Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica, West Indies, in 2009. She completed her internal medicine residency and internship in internal medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Queens Hospital Center in Jamaica, New York. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in biology from St. John’s University in Queens, New York.

She joins the hospitalist team of James Gainer, Steve Toney, Joel Hummer, and Phil Chua, who meet patients’ needs while they are in the hospital on a round-the-clock basis, in partnership with a referring physician.

Dube says she feels a unity among the entire staff at DMC and especially appreciates the helpfulness of everyone she’s come in contact with.

Outside of health care, Dube enjoys photography, reading and outdoor activities including biking, hiking, skiing and viewing West Virginia’s brilliant fall foliage. She hopes to improve her skills in tennis and swimming. She also is fluent in French and Creole.

Dube is board certified and holds a West Virginia medical license. She is a member of the American Medical Association and American College of Physicians.
