How many times Parkinson's expert visited Biden in EIGHT MONTHS (2024)

Amid the implosion of Joe Biden's reelection campaign and worries over his public mental decline, it's now revealed that a Parkinson's disease expert has been making frequent visits to the White House.

Dr. Kevin Cannard, a neurologist who specializes in movement disorders at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, stopped in at the president's residence eight times in eight months, according to public visitor logs.

On January 17 this year, the logs indicate, Dr. Cannard met with Biden's White House physician Dr. Kevin O'Connor, cardiologist Dr. John E. Atwood and another unidentified individual at 5 p.m.

O'Connor says he has not ordered a cognitive test for the 81-year-old president despite rising calls for the mental assessment after Biden's car crash debate last month with Donald Trump and the bungled damage control that ensued.

Biden's team and allies are scrambling to convince voters and Democrat lawmakers and Party members that he is still fit for another term behind the Resolute Desk with flailing poll numbers and a rising resistance within the left.

Dr. Kevin Cannard is a movement disorder specialist at the Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland. It was revealed through White House visitor logs that he visited President Joe Biden's White House eight times over the course of eight months

Cannard's most recent appointment at the White House in late March 2024, but his first visit was in November 2022.

The majority of Cannard's stop-ins spanned from summer 2023 to spring 2024.

The doctor recently published a paper on Parkinson's disease, a central nervous system disorder that affects movement control and is most often classified by body tremors.

Biden has sought to quash rumors he is unfit to lead and still asserts he will run in the November election, but has refused to state whether he is undergoing regular, official cognitive tests.

'Look, I have a cognitive test every single day,' Biden said when asked by ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Friday, as he referred to the tasks he faces daily in a rigorous job.

'Every day, I have that test. Everything I do. You know, not only am I campaigning, but I'm running the world.'

Records show the president wasin the White House on the day of the medics' January meeting, as it took place on the same day hehosted House and Senate leaders to convince them to back extra funding for Ukraine.

President Joe Biden, 81, and his team have attempted to squash concerns within the party claiming he is not fit to serve another term following his car crash debate performance against Donald Trump

Cannard has been in his position at the Walter Reed center for almost 20 years.

He has served as 'neurology specialist supporting the White House Medical Unit,' since 2012, according to his LinkedIn.

The White House has declined to confirm if the doctors met with Biden, but O'Connor's primary duty is to attend to the president and the first family.

The doctor issued Biden a clean bill of health during an annual exam in February, which ruled out Parkinson's, O'Connor said at the time.

He became the president's physician in 2021 and has contact with him every day.

Following the debate, the White House said Biden had done a verbal 'check-in' with his doctor.

But questions over his competency remain, especially after his first sit-down interview since the disastrous June 27 debate did little to assuage fears.

Several Democrats had called for Biden to quit the racefollowing the debate and they reiterated this wish after yesterday's ABC interview.

The White House refused to say if the doctors met with Biden during the appointment, but the president was in D.C. at the time

Former White House physician and current Rep. Ronny Jackson accused the president and his wife of attempting to gloss over his state of mind.

'I believe he and Jill Biden have led the cover up,' Jackson said.

'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 ofthe Biden family.'

O'Connor and Cannard refused to comment when approached by the New York Post.

A White House spokesman also declined to comment on the nature of the meeting.

'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,' he said.
