Obama Physically Fit For Duty

Obama gets a physical and gets a clean bill of health and a recommendation that he continue his smoking cessation programs. He also visited wounded soldiers today.
The following is a report from the President’s routine physical examination performed this morning at Bethesda Naval Medical Center.

The physical examination was performed by Dr. Jeff Kuhlman, a Navy captain and Physician to the President, Chief White House Physician and Director of the White House Medical Unit. Other specialists assisted in their areas of expertise. Some preliminary testing took place prior to today.

Dr. Kulhman recommends his next physical take place when he turns 50 in August 2011.

At no time was it necessary to temporarily transfer Presidential authority under Section 3 of the 25th Amendment.
