Eisold with Joe R. Campa (June 2008)

John Francis Eisold, MD was the attending physician of the United States Capitol from 1994–2009. Dr. Eisold holds the rank of Rear Admiral in the United States Navy.

He graduated from Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College and did his postgraduate training at the National Naval Medical Center Program specializing in general internal medicine and geriatric medicine.[1]

Admiral Eisold and the Attending Physician's office played a central role in the 2001 anthrax attacks on Senator Tom Daschle's U.S. Senate office, taking nasal swabs from the nearly 6,000 staff, employees, and visitors that were potentially exposed to the harmful bacteria.[2] Admiral Eisold and his staff also provided initial treatment to Senator Tim Johnson when he suffered from an intracerebral bleed caused by a cerebral arteriovenous malformation, prior to Johnson's admission to George Washington University Hospital.[3]
