Biden Heads For First Inspection As President: White House

The White House said on Friday that America’s oldest president is about to undergo his first medical examination after being sworn in.

In the morning, President Joe Biden will travel to Walter Reed Medical Center for “a routine annual check-up,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement.

There were no individuals on the daily schedule released by the White House on Thursday.

Walter Reid is located in Bethesda, Maryland, about 9 miles northwest of the White House.

More detailed physical information will be provided after Biden arrives at the facility, Psaki said.

The White House said that Biden will have his first medical examination as president by the end of the year, but has repeatedly resisted scheduling a due date.

“Soon he will undergo a medical examination. As I noted earlier, once he does, we will transparently provide this information to all of you, ”Psaki told reporters last week.

“He undergoes regular tests under the guidance of his doctor,” she added.

According to the White House, the results of the physical examination will be made public.

Biden was the oldest person ever sworn in as president. He is 78 years old; On November 20, he will turn 79 years old.

Biden’s latest medical report was published in December 2019. His physician, Kevin O’Connor, declared the then-candidate “healthy” and “energetic.”

Biden struggled with an irregular heartbeat, according to his doctor, but that rhythm is now “steady, with normal ventricular response,” and Biden never needed medication or electrical treatment for the condition.

The report says that Biden underwent surgery to repair his brain aneurysm in 1988, but the procedure was successful and he had no relapses. Biden is taking Nexium for episodic gastroesophageal reflux and several other medications for seasonal allergies and sinus congestion.

O’Connor said Biden was “capable of successfully serving as president.” He said that Biden does not use tobacco or alcohol, and that the Democrat worked five days a week.

When Biden took office, O’Connor was named the White House’s top physician.

Biden’s first scheduled event for Friday was a turkey pardon before Thanksgiving.

After that, Biden had to leave Washington and fly to Wilmington, Delaware, where he has a residence.

Biden often leaves Washington for the weekend.

Psaki has scheduled a briefing for 13:00.
