Biden’s Doctor Claims Parkinson’s Specialist Visited White House at Least 9 Times as Part of Annual Exams

Democrat President Joe Biden’s physician has confirmed that a neurologist who specializes in Parkinson’s disease has been visiting the White House.

As Slay News reported earlier, the neurologist, Dr. Kevin Cannard, visited the White House at least nine times.

However, Biden’s White House doctor, Kevin O’Connor, has now claimed that the visits were just part of the president’s annual exams.

In a letter released Monday night, O’Connor said Dr. Cannard was chosen for Biden’s annual physicals “not because he is a movement disorder specialist, but because he is a highly trained and highly regarded neurologist here at Walter Reed and across the Military Health System, with a very wide expertise which makes him flexible to see a variety of patients and problems.”

O’Connor claims in his letter that Biden did not see a neurologist outside his annual physicals.

The White House physician added that he received permission from Biden and Cannard to release the neurologist’s identity and the nature of his visits.

“To protect patient privacy for the thousands of patients of the White House Medical Unit and the physicians who treat them, normally we do not disclose the names of specialists we work with,” the letter reads.

No signs of neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, ascending lateral sclerosis, stroke, or cervical myelopathy, were found during Biden’s physical in February, O’Connor insists.

O’Connor redirected to his February 28 letter where he said:

“An extremely detailed neurologic exam was again reassuring in that there were no findings which would be consistent with any cerebellar or other central neurological disorder.”

This comes after White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters at a news briefing earlier on Monday that she would not identify Cannard or share details surrounding his White House visits for privacy purposes.

However, she did say Biden has an annual physical evaluation that includes seeing a neurologist and pointed out that the results have been publicly shared.

The letter from O’Connor also highlighted that the results of Biden’s annual physicals have been made public each time.

Concerns surrounding Biden’s cognitive abilities continued to rise following news of visits to the White House by a Parkinson’s disease expert.

The New York Post reported that a Parkinson’s expert from Walter Reed visited the White House at least nine times.

At least eight of those visits were made in an eight-month period, including for a January 17 meeting with O’Connor.

In his letter, O’Connor failed to reveal why Dr. Cannard made so many visits over an 8-month period if it was related to annual examinations.

O’Connor’s letter laid out Cannard’s background as a neurology specialist and explained that he has been the neurology consultant to the White House Medical Unit since 2012.

It also stated that Cannard has examined Biden for each of his annual physicals, including his most recent one in February.

Before and after the pandemic, Cannard held regular neurology clinics at the White House medical clinic for the thousands of active-duty military members assigned to support White House operations, the letter said.

The letter continued by noting that many military personnel experience neurological issues in connection with their service.

Questions about Biden’s health and mental fitness were amplified following his disastrous debate performance last month against President Donald Trump.

The debate prompted a flood of Democrats to call for Biden to exit the presidential race.

Others in the party remain vocal about their continued support for the president’s re-election campaign, however.

Biden has repeatedly said since the debate that he plans to remain in the race as he hopes to defeat Trump to secure a second term in November.
