Biden’s Doctor Met With Parkinson’s Disease Specialist, White House Logs Show


President Biden’s primary physicians met with a Parkinson’s disease specialist at the White House, according to visitor logs obtained by the New York Post.

Dr. Kevin Cannard, a Parkinson’s disease expert at Walter Reed Medical Center, met with Dr. Kevin O’Connor, and two others at the White House residence clinic on January 17, according to White House records. The report comes as panic and speculation surrounding President Biden’s cognitive ability continues to swirl after last week’s disastrous debate with former President Donald Trump.

Dr. John E. Atwood, a cardiologist at Walter Reed, was also in attendance for the White House meeting. A fourth person was also in attendance, though they have not been identified. At the time, Biden was at the White House as part of his effort to convince lawmakers to allocate additional funding for Ukraine, according to his official schedule.

The New York Post noted that Dr. Cannard is an “authority” on Parkinson’s disease who has worked at Walter Reed for nearly 20 years. Since 2012, he has served as the “neurology specialist supporting the White House Medical Unit,” according to his LinkedIn page.

U.S. Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) — who worked as the primary White House physician under President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump — said it was “highly probable” that the purpose of the meeting was focused on Biden’s health. “It’s highly likely they were talking about Biden,” Jackson told the New York Post, pointing to the fact that Dr. O’Connor is Biden’s primary physician.

“He should only be [regularly] treating the president and the first family,” he said.

O’Connor has been Biden’s primary White House physician since he took office in January 2021 and is in daily contact with the president.

O’Connor gave Biden a clean bill of health at his annual physical in February. The exam included a neurological exam which specifically ruled out Parkinson’s disease, O’Connor said at the time.

Jackson — who has repeatedly questioned Biden’s mental and physical fitness — has accused O’Connor of attempting to “cover up” the president’s declining health and ability.

I believe he and Jill Biden have led the cover up. Kevin O’Connor is like a son to Jill Biden — she loves him. It’s crazy. Kevin O’Connor was in that job on day one of the Biden administration because they knew they could trust Kevin to say and do anything that needed to be said or done and cover up whatever needed to be covered up. He is part of the Biden family,” Jackson said.

Dr. Rob Howard, a professor of old age psychiatry at University College of London, stated that President Biden has displayed a number of symptoms consistent with Parkinson’s Disease.

Howard explained that the president’s “fluctuation in attentional function, his facial appearance, and his gait,” were all signs of a potential issue, though he stressed that he was not making a formal diagnosis. “I am not saying its Parkinson’s disease, I am just pointing out that there are features to him that are consistent with Parkinson’s disease.”
