WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Chappaqua's Hillary Clinton is in excellent physical condition, according to a physician from Mount Kisco Medical Group, as she prepares for a run at the presidency.
Dr. Lisa Bardack, chair of internal medicine at MKMG, said in a story on Politico.com that Clinton “is in excellent physical condition to serve as President of the United States.”
Bardack is affiliated with Northern Westchester Hospital. Her speciality is Internal Medicine, and was named a "Top Doctor" in 2013. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and the New York University School of Medicine.
Clinton suffered from hypothyroidism, seasonal allergies and takes blood thinners as a precaution against clots, the story said. Bardack said Clinton’s cancer screening evaluations were negative.
Bardack’s report said a concussion Clinton suffered in 2012 resulted from dehydration and a virus. The concussion prevented her from testifying before congressional committees investigating the Benghazi attack.
“In December of 2012, Mrs. Clinton suffered a stomach virus after traveling, became dehydrated, fainted and sustained a concussion,” Bardack said in the report. She was discovered to suffer from “transverse sinus thrombosis” and began taking blood thinners to dissolve the clot. The concussion caused Clinton to suffer briefly with double vision, for which she wore glasses with a “Fresnel Prism.”
Those symptoms resolved within two months, Bardack said, and Clinton promptly dropped the glasses.
In 2013, a follow-up visit revealed a “total dissolution of the thrombosis,” Bardack said. She also tested negative for all blood clotting disorders, but remained on daily anticoagulation medication. Clinton’s medications include the blood thinner Coumadin, as well as Armour Thyroid, antihistamines and Vitamin B12, known to boost energy.
