Kathryn Less, MD


Kathryn Less, MD, is a UW Health Kids pediatrician and a clinical assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Department of Pediatrics.

Dr. Less sees patients from birth to early adulthood for well-child checks, sports physicals, sick visits, and other common concerns in pediatrics such as asthma, eczema, and other chronic conditions. She listens closely to both patients and parents to identify areas of concern and come up with an effective plan of care. Dr. Less answers questions, eases any related stress or anxiety and helps navigate the health care system.

Dr. Less loves working with children and families because she gets to know patients from birth through early adulthood. She enjoys watching children grow and partnering with families to help their kids become the best versions of themselves.

In her free time, she likes to be outside and out on the water, as well as trying out all of the great restaurants the Madison area has to offer.

I want my patients to feel supported, listened to and well cared for  like they've got somebody on their team helping them off to a great start.
