Samantha Pabich, MD


Samantha Pabich, MD, MPH, is an endocrinologist at UW Health and an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health where she focuses on educating and teaching about obesity and its management 

Dr. Pabich cares for people with diabetes, thyroid disorders, pituitary disorders, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS),osteoporosis, gonadal dysfunction, obesity and many other issues involving hormones and the endocrine system.   

With a special interest in helping people manage their weight, Dr. Pabich evaluates patients for the pathological causes of obesity and works to offer medical and behavioral treatments. She also researches medications, psychological and behavioral treatments, and factors that help patients follow their treatment strategies.   

Obesity is a sensitive topic. It’s very difficult for patients to talk about how weight impacts their life. I try to normalize their feelings. I ask questions to identify what medical or social issues have contributed to their weight gain, then work to find solutions.
