Northern Light Inland Hospital welcomes Dominique Uva, FNP-C, family nurse practitioner, to Northern Light Endocrinology and Diabetes Care in Waterville.

Uva is experienced in diabetes management and endocrinology with expertise in thyroid disorders, osteoporosis and polycystic ovary syndrome.

She earned her undergraduate degree in gerontology from Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York, and her master’s in nursing from SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, New York. She is a board-certified by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.

Her experience includes hospital medicine and specializing in advanced diabetes care and treatment along with management of thyroid disorders and osteoporosis at the Joslin Diabetes Center in New York.

Additionally, she worked at Arnot Health Endocrinology, a hospital-based practice that specializes in endocrinology with focus on diabetes management, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, PCOS and hypogonadism.

Uva believes, “Patients need to trust their provider and be able to relate to them on some level. I find earning trust and building rapport to be most important. Additionally, I find it imperative that the patient be at the center of their care; involved in the decision making and treatment plan. We are in a relationship with and for our patients, and we should be co-navigating their health care journey together.”
