BREAKING: Biden’s doctor releases letter about Parkinson’s expert visiting White House

Joe Biden’s White House doctor released a letter tonight about the Parkinson’s expert visiting the White House eight times in the last eight months.

According to ABC News, Dr. Kevin O’Connor claims the expert was just there for Biden’s annual physical. The other seven visit were for other reasons.

O’Connor also said Biden has not been diagnosed with Parkinson’s:

In a letter released late Monday night by the president’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, he confirmed that Dr. Kevin Cannard, the Parkinson’s expert who visited the White House eight times in an eight-month span, “was the neurological specialist that examined President Biden for each of his annual physicals.”

Canard’s visits to the White House don’t represent examinations of the president. In fact, the president’s neurological exam and physical are likely done at Walter Reed, not the White House.

As O’Connor wrote in his letter, Cannard is involved in a range of care for others beyond the president that could have brought him to the White House.

He also noted that Cannard “has held regular Neurology Clinics at the White House Medical Clinic in support of the thousands of active-duty members assigned in support of White House operations.”

“Many military personnel experience neurological issues related to their service, and Dr. Canard regularly visits the WHMU as part of this General Neurology practice,” which may explain some of the visits,” O’Connor’s letter continued.

On the subject of Biden’s physical, O’Connor noted that “President Biden has not seen a neurologist outside of his annual physical.”

He also stressed that Biden’s last physical found no signs of Parkinson’s, as O’Connor detailed at the time in a Feb. 28 letter.

I never thought Biden had Parkinson’s, but it does seem like he has some form of dementia that’s gotten worse over the last four years.
