Hara Levy, MD

About

Hara Levy, MD, is a pediatric pulmonologist at UW Health as well as a professor and the division chief of Pediatric Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Department of Pediatrics. Dr. Levy evaluates children and young adults with respiratory symptoms such as chronic coughing and difficulty breathing. She treats related conditions, including pneumonia and other lung disorders such as bronchiectasis (damaged airway tubes) and bronchiolitis (lung infection).

Dr. Levy specializes in screening for respiratory conditions and treating cystic fibrosis and rare pulmonary (lung) diseases. In addition, she is involved in researching cystic fibrosis. Dr. Levy investigates chronic and recurring airway infections caused by pseudomonas bacteria found in the soil and water.

She finds it rewarding to see kids who were sidelined by coughing and shortness of breath get back in the game of life.

When not at work, she loves to run and spend time with her husband and two children, including watching their kids’ soccer games.

It’s wonderful to see kids who don’t feel well get better and participate in school and extracurricular activities.
