Meet Our APPs: Eileen Yeisley, DNP, ARNP

We are pleased to present the next in our weekly series introducing you to Internal Medicine’s Advanced Practice Providers. In addition to sharing information about where they work in the department, we asked them each to tell us a little bit about their “Why” (the sustaining pull for their work) and what relaxes them. (Read previous weeks’ installments).

Eileen Yeisley, DNP, ARNP
Cardiovascular Medicine

Service: Electrophysiology

Time with Internal Medicine: I have worked at UIHC for 18 years (nearly 10 in Internal Medicine)

Hometown: I grew up on Long Island but moved to Iowa as a teenager when my father took a job at Rockwell Collins and I’ve been here ever since. I’ve lived in Marion the longest and love the small town but also appreciate diversity and culture of Iowa City.

My “WHY”: In the 90’s I developed a dangerous arrhythmia and received a defibrillator. I had an infant and a toddler at the time, so I became interested in finding out more about cardiac electrophysiology. It has certainly changed over the years as the science has grown. I no longer have a defibrillator, but I stay in the field as it’s always interesting to me.

What relaxes me: The things that relax me most is a good spa massage, a long bath a a really good book!

Read what patients say about her:

  • Eileen Yeisley was exceptionally attentive and patient in listening and answering questions.
  • Professional and caring staff, checking in and checking out. [Eileen] and her nurse were kind, understanding and professional.
  • Overall, you guys listen to me. This is my life. It’s been made significantly better since the doctors and nurses listened to my concerns and did what’s necessary to make me better! Thanks!
  • Eileen was very knowledgeable, added the med I needed and was proactive. I was done in 20 minutes, so I could get back home since my appointment fell between two 12-hour night shifts at the hospital. Liked that she was non-judgemental about my crazy work shifts as a nurse in this intense healthcare year. I was impressed. Thanks!
  • Everyone was very professional and took their time to make sure everything was addressed. I felt like my medical issues were the priority.
