White House Doctor Attempts to Explain Visits by Parkinson’s Expert

On Monday, Joe Biden’s physician, Kevin O’Connor, released a letter attempting to explain away the multiple visits to the White House by a Parkinson’s expert, triggering speculation that Biden suffers from the disease.

According to ABC News, O’Connor claimed that Dr. Kevin Cannard “was the neurological specialist that examined President Biden for each of his annual physicals.” He further asserted that Canard’s eight visits during an eight-month period do not constitute examinations of Biden. Rather, O’Connor claims, Dr. Cannard was involved in a variety of care for others at the White House besides Biden himself.

“Prior to the pandemic, and following its end, [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,” O’Connor states in his letter. “Many military personnel experience neurological issues related to their service, and Dr. Canard regularly visits the WHMU as part of this General Neurology Practice.”

O’Connor also insisted that the last physical examination of Biden, which was detailed in a letter on February 28th, found no signs of Parkinson’s Disease, and that “President Biden has not seen a neurologist outside of his annual physical.”

Despite O’Connor claiming that he had “obtained permission from the President and Dr. Cannard to confirm the details I am sharing,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to confirm O’Connor’s claims on Monday, claiming privacy concerns.

“We will not confirm or speak to names that you’re providing to me,” Jean-Pierre said in response to a question regarding whether or not Dr. Cannard was visiting to evaluate Biden’s health. “It is out of security.”

The Parkinson’s speculation has only added another layer to the ongoing and widespread scrutiny of Biden’s physical and mental health following his disastrous performance in the first presidential debate against Donald Trump last month. Following the debate, many Democrats across the country have called on Biden to withdraw from the race. Biden, however, has stubbornly insisted that he will not drop out and will be the nominee in November.
