Hillary Clinton’s campaign team has released new medical records and information about the presidential candidate after the media and general public raised eyebrows over her health in the aftermath of her collapse on Sunday.
On Monday her campaign team said she was diagnosed with Pneumonia and now her personal doctor Dr. Lisa Bardack, who’s also the chair of Internal Medicine at CareMount Medical in Mount Kisco, New York has released more information on her health following her decision to take three days off the campaign trail.
‘I evaluated Clinton at least four times this month — including Wednesday — and found that the Democratic nominee had a small right middle-lobe pneumonia.’ Dr Bardack wrote in a letter released to the media. The remainder of her complete physical exam was normal and she is in excellent mental condition.”
“My overall impression is that Mrs. Clinton has remained healthy and has not developed new medical conditions this year other than a sinus and ear infection and her recently diagnosed pneumonia, She is recovering well with antibiotics and rest. She continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as president of the United States.”
CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday’s disclosures were “pretty similar” to information she released last year saying the information isn’t comprehensive.
“This is certainly not a release of medical records by any means. This is very similar, in some ways, to what we got in July of last year,” Gupta said.
