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.)
Angie Schadler, DNP, MHCDS, ARNP
Service: General Cardiology Clinic
Years with Internal Medicine: 13 years total
Place I have lived the longest: Iowa City/Cedar Rapids corridor
My “WHY”: My work in Cardiology has been a passion for 23 years. I have worked in different areas of cardiology and find myself pulled to listening to patients’ symptoms and what we can do for them. I find joy in the thank you at the end of the visit, knowing I have helped another person understand what is going on with them and hopefully decreasing their anxiety. I also enjoy being in Cardiology practice for a long time to see how far research and implementation to improve patient lives has come. Unfortunately, cardiovascular disease does not have lifetime “cures” and I like being a part of the patient’s journey.
What Relaxes Me: spending time with my family, reading, walking
Angie is a dynamo – she has cared for many of the sickest patients in cardiology with skill and compassion. She has really been a terrific member of our team.
