Many Doctors Say Hillary Clinton’s Health Concerns are ‘Serious’


Nearly 71 percent of doctors polled in an informal Internet survey by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons say concerns about Hillary Clinton’s health are “serious — could be disqualifying for the position of president of the U.S.”

Around 21 percent of the 250 physicians surveyed said concerns were “likely overblown, but should be addressed as with full release of medical records.”

Nearly 3 percent labeled the concerns “just a political attack.”

The AAPS survey also asked the question, “Which of the following medical conditions suffered by Clinton were you aware of?”

More than 81 percent said they knew about her history of a concussion. Nearly 59 percent said they were aware of cerebral sinus thrombosis, and nearly 53 percent said they knew about deep venous thrombosis.

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, a cerebral venous sinus thrombosis happens “when a blood clot forms in the brain’s venous sinuses.”

Deep vein thrombosis is a blood clot in a deep vein that happens most often in the leg, Johns Hopkins reports.

The respondents also weighed in on the news media’s coverage of Clinton’s health concerns.
