Surprise! Donald Trump released the results of his recent physical exam during a taping of The Dr. Oz Show Wednesday, September 14, despite his campaign’s previous claims that they wouldn’t release any medical information.
After the episode (which airs Thursday, September 15) was filmed, the talk show released a press release to Us Weekly confirming that the Republican presidential nominee, 70, did share a one-page summary of his medical exam.
“Mr. Trump shared with Dr. Oz the results of his physical examination performed last week by Dr. Harold Bornstein, M.D., of Lenox Hill Hospital, whom has been Mr. Trump’s personal physician for many years,” the statement reads.
The release also noted: “Additionally, as all physicians do when seeing a patient for the first time, Dr. Oz took Mr. Trump through a full review of systems including the following: nervous system, head and neck, hormone levels, cardiovascular health and related medications, respiratory health, gastrointestinal health, bladder or prostate health, dermalogical health, history of cancer and family medical history.”
Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump was also present at the Dr. Oz Show taping, where she spoke about the child care and maternity leave initiative that the Trump campaign previously announced.
“Well I really have no problem in doing it,” Donald told Dr. Oz of releasing his medical summary. “I have it right here. Should I do it? I don’t care. Should I do it? It’s two letters. One is the report and the other is from Lenox Hill Hospital.”
During the taping, the businessman also told Dr. Oz that he wants to lose approximately 15 pounds, an audience member told CNN.
Earlier this week, Dr. Oz revealed on Fox News that he was planning to release his medical records as soon as the results became available. “This last week, I took a physical, and I’ll be releasing, when the numbers come in, hopefully they are going to be good,” he explained Monday, September 12. “I think they are going to be good. I feel great, but when the numbers come in, I’ll be releasing very specific numbers.”
As Us Weekly previously reported, the TV host also extended an invitation to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who was recently diagnosed with pneumonia, to come on his show. Clinton tweeted Monday that she was “feeling fine and getting better.”
The Dr. Oz Show airs in national syndication.
