Tracy Bekx, MD, is a UW Health Kids pediatric endocrinologist and an associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
She is the medical director of the Pediatric Diabetes Program and co-director of the Pediatric Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Clinic. Dr. Bekx treats children with diabetes, thyroid problems, growth problems, obesity and issues related to puberty.
Dr. Bekx understands the importance of educating her patients and their families on managing diabetes, especially with a new diagnosis. Dr. Bekx believes in involving her patients and their families in decision-making. She works with them along with a team of specialists to support the family now and in the future. She’s very open and listens to her patients to ensure they have all the information they need.
It’s important for Dr. Bekx to support her adolescent patients as they switch from pediatric care to adult care. She ensures that her patients have the knowledge and ability to manage their disease before they transition out of her care.
In her free time, Dr. Bekx enjoys hiking, downhill skiing, boating and swimming.
My hope for all my patients is that they continue to engage in their life goals, despite the disease they have to deal with.
