Trump Shares Physical Exam Results With Dr. Oz

Donald Trump shared the results of his physical examination last week with Dr. Mehmet Oz on his show, “The Dr. Oz Show,” in an episode recorded Wednesday morning that will air Thursday.

According to a release from the show, Trump’s exam was performed by Dr. Harold Bornstein, M.D. of Lenox Hill Hospital. Bornstein has been Trump’s personal physician since 1980. In December, Bornstein wrote a memo announcing that the 69-year-old Trump would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” an assessment that was questioned soon after he made it, given the high fitness levels of presidents like Mr. Obama, former President George W. Bush, and Teddy Roosevelt, all of whom were much younger than Trump when they were elected. At the time, Bornstein said that Trump had “suffered no form of cancer, has never had a hip, knee or shoulder replacement or any other orthopedic surgery” and added Trump has “no history of ever using alcohol or tobacco products.”

On “The Dr. Oz Show,” over the course of the hour-long show, the release said that Oz took Trump “through a full review of systems” -- including the nervous system, head and neck, hormone levels, his cardiovascular and respiratory health, among others.

Trump has at this point not released his medical records to journalists -- CBS News has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment and the timing of that release. In an interview with Fox News on Monday, the GOP nominee had said he felt “great” and promised he would “be releasing very, very specific numbers” on his physical exam.
