White House Doctor Claims Biden ‘Fit For Duty’ After Physical

 President Joe Biden is allegedly “fit for duty” following his yearly physical exam, according to White House Dr. Kevin O’Connor.

O’Connor said that there were “no new concerns” identified during the course of the exam from the last time that Biden was examined in 2023.

A new condition that the 81-year-old president is being treated for is obstructive sleep apnea. Biden has to use a Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) machine to address the issue.

Biden also suffers from Non-Valvular Atrial Fibrillation, Hyperlipidemia, Gastroesophageal Reflux, Seasonal Allergies, Stiffened Gait (Moderate to Severe Degenerative Osteoarthritic Change/Spondylosis), and Sensory Peripheral Neuropathy of the Feet, O’Connor said.

O’Connor said that he conducted Biden’s annual physical in consultation with specialists in various medical specialties, including Optometry, Dentistry, Orthopedics (Foot and Ankle), Orthopedics (Spine), Physical Therapy, Neurology, Sleep Medicine, Cardiology, Radiology and Dermatology.

“Each of these specialists have independently reviewed the chart, examined the President, and concur with my findings and recommendations,” he said. “I have also solicited feedback from my respected colleagues – the other physicians in the White House Medical Unit, who see the patient every day. Each of these doctors has reviewed my report for accuracy. My conclusions have been further informed through discussions with several of my fellow professors from the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences.”

O’Connor claimed that Biden remained “fit for duty and fully executes all of his responsibilities without any exemptions or accommodations.” He also called Biden “healthy, active, and robust.”

While the results from Biden’s physical exam seem positive, no cognitive exam was performed, and O’Connor did not appear at the White House press conference on Wednesday where reporters could have asked him questions about Biden’s health.

Recent polling has found the overwhelming majority of Americans have serious concerns about Biden’s ability to serve as president because of issues related to his mental fitness.
