Obama's routine physical and health exam were uneventful with the exception of his doctor's warning: "Quit Smoking." The results from Obama's physical indicated the President is in "excellent health" and "fit for duty."
Jeffrey Kuhlman performed the physical and reported to the White House press secretary, Robert Gibbs, details of his findings in a memo. Americans are allowed access to this memo to indicate the status of the president's health. Obama was examined outside and in, through a CT colonagraphy, a routine procedure to identify colon cancer, at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
Kuhlman's findings from the exam were: Obama is forty eight, suffers from mildly high cholesterol, and ought to “continue smoking cessation efforts.” The President has never been photographed smoking, but he has confessed to indulging this vice. Kuhlman wants Obama to return in five years for a follow up exam.
