Dawn Davis MD, PhD


Specialty medical provider

I am an endocrinologist working at both UW Health and the Madison VA. I provide hormonal therapy and monitoring for adult transgender patients at both locations. I initiated the expansion of the practice of our endocrine clinics to include this service for transgender patients. It is very important to me that transgender patients have access to safe, effective hormonal therapy. Our clinics generally follow the current guidelines of The Endocrine Society. The contact information below is for UW Endocrinology clinics. VA patients should request a referral to Madison Endocrine clinic from their VA PCP.
