Dr. Drew thinks Americans should be ‘gravely concerned’ about Hillary Clinton’s health

Or at the very least about the care she is receiving? Dr. Drew Pinsky thinks so.

Pinsky appeared earlier this week KABC’s “McIntyre in the Morning.” The show’s hosts, Doug McIntyre and Terri-Rae Elmer, invited the TV personality known as “America’s most trusted physician” to debunk claims that the Democratic nominee is ill.

What he said instead was that he and colleague Robert Huizenga had reviewed Mrs. Clinton’s medical records (which, he explained, had already been released, contrary to popular belief). What they found, he underscored, left the pair “gravely concerned …. not just about her health but her health care.”

Pinsky went on to list the health problems Clinton had suffered — which included a “transverse sinus thrombosis,” which he identified as “exceedingly rare” and  that “virtually guarantees somebody has something wrong with their coagulation system.”

He went on to note that the treatment she is receiving is antiquated. In the audio of the interview, which follows, he makes note of some of the medications she is receiving, a number of which are dated and have been replaced by more state-of-the-art remedies.
