    Ann Stapleton, MD, is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease. After graduating from Harvard University with a degree in biology, Dr. Stapleton completed her medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine, a joint entity between Montefiore Medical Center and Yeshiva University in New York. She then completed an internal medicine residency program at the University of California, San Francisco followed by a fellowship in infectious diseases at the University of Washington, Seattle.

    “I was initially interested in science and medicine because I enjoy solving mysteries,” states Dr. Stapleton. “While in medical school, I found the most engaging cases to be concerning infectious diseases - which is one of the reasons why I have specialized in that field. Additionally, living in San Francisco during the beginning of the HIV/AIDS epidemic was transformational and compelling…one might say my career and history aligned.” As a young physician in the 1980s during the HIV/AIDS epidemic, Dr. Stapleton first became a primary care doctor for people living with HIV and she has witnessed the successful progress in the management of this condition. She will continue to provide primary care for HIV patients at the Eisenhower Health Center at Rimrock in Palm Springs.

    For most of her career, Dr. Stapleton has been a physician at a university hospital conducting research, teaching medical students and treating patients. Dr. Stapleton’s research program for the last 25 years has focused on the causes, prevention and treatment of urinary tract infections (UTI). In addition to seeing HIV patients at the Rimrock site, Dr. Stapleton will spearhead a UTI Clinic, will continue her research work and will be an attending physician in Eisenhower’s residency program in internal medicine.
