Alexandra Eidelwein, MD

Dr. Eidelwein was born in Sao Paulo and raised in southern Brazil. She has extensive experience with inflammatory bowel disease and is Co-PI for Cottage’s membership in the Improve Care Now (ICN) Collaborative. She brings an intelligent and caring approach to the population she serves, and is an essential part of our GI team.

In her off hours, Alexandra enjoys spending time with her daughter, biking and making a delicious pao de queijo. She is fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese. We take her word for it on that last one.
