A top neurologist who specialises in Parkinson’s Disease had a meeting with US President Joe Biden’s personal doctor at the White House, according to a report.

The Parkinson’s Disease is a neurological condition that progressively leads to physical and mental decline of a person and is often characterised by stiff movements, tremors in hands, blank facial expressions, and slurry speech — signs that Biden has shown in recent years.

Following the disastrous presidential debate with former US President Donald Trump, Biden’s physical and mental health has been under renewed scrutiny. Throughout the speech, he struggled to speak coherently and at times could not complete his sentences and appeared to lose the train of thoughts.


Now, The New York Post has cited the White House visitor log’s records reported that Dr Kevin Cannard, a Parkinson Disease specialist at the Walter Reed Medical Center met with Dr Kevin O’Connor, the personal doctor of Biden, at the White House’s indoor clinic on January 17.

The newspaper further reported that Dr John E Atwood, a cardiologist are Walter Reed, was also part of the meeting. One more person was part of the meeting but was not named in the report.

O’Connor has refuted that Biden has Parkinson’s Disease. As per a memo from O’Connor in February, detailed health examinations, including a neurological exam of Biden, found no findings that would be consistent with neurological disorders such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease, according to CNN.

The meeting was likely about Biden’s health, says report

Since Biden and his immediate family, such as First Lady Jill Biden, are the only ones to be treated by O’Connor, who has been the Physican to the President since 2021 when Biden assumed the presidency, the meeting was most likely about Biden’s health, according to the report.

Ronny Jackson, a Republican lawmaker who was the personal doctor to former President Barak Obama and Trump, said that the Biden family is engaged in a cover up.

Jackson told The Post, “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.”


Rob Howard, a professor of old age psychiatry at University College London, was quoted by the newspaper as saying that Biden displayed several signs consistent with the Parkinson’s Disease.

Biden’s “fluctuation in attentional function, his facial appearance, and his gait” were all signs that something is amiss, said Howard, who stressed that he was not offering a formal diagnosis.

Howard further said, “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.”

In response to the story, the White House said that several doctors from the Walter Reed come to the White House for the treatment of many military personnel who work there. Notably, Walter Reed is the premier US military-run hospital.


“A wide variety of specialists from the Walter Reed system visit the White House complex to treat thousands of military personnel who work on the grounds,” said the White House in a statement to The Post.
