White House doctor: President Trump 'is in excellent health'

Trump, 71, underwent the evaluation at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Bandy X. Lee. That briefing was provided although both the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association advise that mental health professionals should not offer a judgment about anyone, including public figures, who they haven't personally examined.

President Donald Trump's physician on Friday declared him in "excellent health" after his first known physical checkup since his inauguration almost one year ago.

The Prez showed up to Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda Friday for his first physical since taking office.

Jackson is expected to brief reporters in more detail on Tuesday at the White House.

One is thing is apparent: Trump doesn't seem to be a hypochondriac, at least not publicly.

"I think it's going to go very well", the president predicted.

The physical follows recent speculation surrounding the president's health leading up to the exam. But for the past several decades, all presidents have.

But the White House said the claims about Trump's mental health are "complete fantasy".

The group is "extremely appalled at, and strongly condemns the outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks by the president of the United States of America as widely reported by the media", a statement added, demanding a "retraction and an apology".

Whether the exam, which Trump is nearly certainly expected to pass, stops concerns about his fitness for the role of US President remains to be seen.

Trump is getting the customary presidential health check amid questions about his fitness for office.

Dr. Tochi Iroku-Malize, chair for family medicine at Northwell Health in NY, said the main components of a physical involve the basics of getting a patient's height, weight, body mass index, and blood pressure, as well as listening to the lungs and heart.

But they also included more detailed examinations of the heart, lungs, vision, cholesterol and blood glucose that could point to problems. Past presidents have been largely forthcoming with their medical records, including some embarrassing details like when President Bill Clinton's doctor revealed he had hemorrhoids.

The 2016 letter put Trump's blood pressure and cholesterol measurements in the healthy range, though he uses a cholesterol-lowering statin medication.

"All clinical data indicates that the President is now very healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency", Jackson wrote in his description of President Barack Obama's final physical exam, in 2016.

"Like other countries that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation".
