Top Parkinson's disease specialist visited White House 10 times since 2022: Visitor logs
The logs show that Parkinson's disease expert Dr. Kevin Cannard of the Walter Reed Medical Center met with Biden's physician and two others on Jan. 17.

President Joe Biden's physician met with a top Washington, D.C., neurologist who specializes in Parkinson's disease earlier this year, according to White House visitor logs.

The logs show that Parkinson's disease expert Dr. Kevin Cannard of the Walter Reed Medical Center met with Biden's physician Kevin O'Connor and two others at the White House residence clinic on Jan. 17. Cannard's name shows up in the visitor logs 10 times since Nov. 15, 2022.

"It's highly likely they were talking about Biden," Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) told the New York Post, who first reported on the Jan. meeting. "He should only be [regularly] treating the president and the first family."

Jackson served as physician to the president under the Obama and Trump administrations from 2013 to 2018. He has issued a number of warnings about Biden's declining mental health, and accused O'Connor and first lady Jill Biden of having "led the cover up" to hide the president's well-being from the public.

In all but two of Cannard's visits dating back to late 2022, he is listed as having visited Megan Nasworthy, a liaison between Walter Reed Medical Center and the White House. Aside from the January meeting with O'Connor, he met with someone listed as "Dr. Joshua Simmons" on Nov. 15, 2022.

Walter Reed Medical Center cardiologist John E. Atwood was also in the meeting, according to the logs.

Cannard published a paper in the Parkinsonism & Related Disorders journal that focuses on the "early stage" of Parkinson's disease in August 2023, just months before the meeting.

When asked about the visit, the White House pointed to the wide range of personnel and jobs doctors visiting are responsible for.

"A wide variety of specialists from the Walter Reed system visit the White House complex to treat the thousands of military personnel who work on the grounds," the White House told the Washington Examiner in a statement Saturday.

In Biden's interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, released on Friday, he declined to commit to taking an independent cognitive test. Biden claimed his "bad" debate performance was "no indication of any serious condition."

The president also admitted at a meeting with Democratic governors that he had recently met with his doctor before the first presidential debate, despite the White House repeatedly denying he had any medical examination done. He also revealed that he would try to curtail his schedule to have fewer events after 8 p.m.

Biden aides toldAxios last week that the president is functional and engaged from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Outside of that time period, or while traveling abroad, aides said, the president is more likely to have miscues.

After his rough showing at the first debate, Biden has faced mounting pressure to drop out of the 2024 presidential race. Political heavyweights on both sides of the aisle have criticized his performance, and many prominent members of his own party have called on him to let someone else take on Trump in November.

The Guardian has it as eight visits with the most recent one in March.

Do you not think that these visits raise additional questions about Biden and a lack of transparency in the Administration?

Why, no, everything is always rosy in Biden World.

The President is just fine, so they say.

The President acts 30 years younger, so they say.

The President is right on top of things, so they say.

The President will save us from Trump and democracy will be saved, so they say.

And? Haven’t you gotten the memo? We now have to believe and celebrate people’s delusion mental disorders, so if Biden claims to be the first black woman VP to serve a black president than that is what he was!

Next question: does that make him racist for stealing an actual black woman’s accomplishments?

Are you refuting the FACTS in the article. How come you never criticize or honestly discuss Biden and his obvious signs of deterioration, both mentally and physically. Thanks why your opinions are not taken seriously.

Top Parkinson's Disease Specialist Visited White House 10 Times Since 2022: Visitor Logs

That is the headline. In the body of the story it says this "Parkinson's expert" met with Bidens doctor ONCE. 

For all we know he could have been asking the White House physician if Biden showed any symptoms and the doctor said no. 

This trash is the rankest form of irresponsible speculation (for political purposes)

So how many times did he meet with Biden?

Or was he just visiting the White House for shits and giggles?

Hell, Biden's team said he hadn't been seen by a doctor right before the debate, but, typically, Joe let the cat out of the bag.

It usually starts with some facts and speculation.  We will see how the WH handles the speculation, especially if there is a real press conference.

Here's some speculation.. 

The visits started in November 2022, which is right on the heels of this Biden "gaffe".

Speaking at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health on Wednesday, Biden tried to acknowledge the presence of Rep. Jackie Walorski – despite the fact that the Indiana Republican had died in a car accident in early August.

“Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie? I think she wasn’t going to be here – to help make this a reality,” Biden said.

The White House sought to play off the odd moment as nothing more than Walorski being “top of mind” for Biden.

“There will be a bill signing in her honor this coming Friday, so, of course, she was on his mind,” said White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. “She was top of mind for the President.”

I hope they prove there is something wrong with him so he can drop out, get some medical help and we can get on with showing trump to be the most unfit for office candidate in the 248 year history of this country.

It would provide a more graceful way out, but he has to get to “acceptance” first and he is still in “denial”.

I would think it's more likely that the White House physician was consulting with the expert.
