She seemed to care about my strange case. Let me know what tests they needed to do and explained results and tried different therapudics(out of the box) to see if they could possibly work. She reached out to colleagues to discuss my case, to gather other opinions and options of treatment.I can message her anytime and gets back with me in a timely manner.

Dr Baumann is very knowledgeable and explains everything clearly. She is extremely good dealing with complex cases and treating them successfully. I had esophageal issues that my prior gastroenterologist was unable to fix, but Dr Baumann came to the rescue, and now I’m feeling so much better. I highly recommend Dr Baumann and am happy to have found her.

I would most certainly recommend Dr. Alexandra Baumann to family members or friends who needed a Gastroenterologist. She was professional and thorough in her exam and questions. I came away with a plan for my next steps, additional physician referrals to investigate possible additional health issues, a prescription to help my condition and follow up instructions with the doctor. I was very happy with the outcome of my appointment with Dr. Baumann.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
