Growing up on the sunny beaches of the Caribbean was in many ways paradise, but it also inspired Dr. Chard Bubb to pursue a career in medicine. He saw what chronic conditions like diabetes can do to a person, the family, and a community and he wanted to make things better. Even though no one in his family was in the medical profession, Dr. Bubb knew he could help others by becoming a doctor.
Dr. Bubb obtained his medical degree at St. Georges University School of Medicine. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine at SUNY, Health Science Center at Brooklyn and followed that by a Fellowship in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism at the same institution. He carries dual board certifications in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology, which means he can take care of patients with more than one chronic condition.
As Lead Physician for Endocrinology for Intermountain Healthcare, formerly HealthCare Partners Nevada, Dr. Bubb’s friendly style and bright smile put his patients at ease. He recognizes that patients who understand their health status are better able to manage their conditions, which are often lifestyle focused. That’s why he spends the time necessary to get to know who they are as people and answer important questions regarding diet and even medication costs.
When Dr. Bubb isn’t seeing patients, he’s out in the community talking about ways to manage diabetes care. He makes sure he practices what he preaches and regularly works-out with a trainer and gets plenty of exercise.
In his free time, Dr. Bubb spends it with his family. He loves to golf, cheers his favorite soccer team—Real Madrid, and flies drones for fun.
