Washington — President Joe Biden headed to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Friday for his first routine physical exam as president.

The plans for the physical examination were announced in an early morning tweet by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

Biden, 78, had his last full test in December 2019, when doctors found the former vice president to be “in good health, active” and “fit to successfully carry out the duties of the presidency,” according to a doctor’s report at the time.


Dr. Kevin O’Connor, who has been Biden’s primary care physician since 2009, wrote in a three-page memo that the then-presidential candidate was in generally good shape.
