President Trump’s Physician Releases Statement On His Recent Medical Examination
by Ryan Saavedra
President Donald Trump’s physician released a statement on the president’s health on Monday night after the president made a previously unannounced visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center last week, which sparked conspiracy theories from some in the media.
“This past Saturday afternoon the President traveled up to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a routine, planned interim checkup as part of the regular, primary preventative care he receives throughout the year. Due to scheduling uncertainties, the trip was kept off the record,” Sean P. Conley, D.O., wrote in memo. “After a little more than an hour of examination, labs and discussions, the President took a brief tour of the hospital to visit with some of the medical staff as well as speak with the family of a soldier undergoing surgery, after which he returned home to the White House. Despite some of the speculation, the President has not any chest pain, nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues. Specifically, he did not undergo any specialized cardiac or neurologic evaluations.”
