Dr. Drew Pinsky is “gravely concerned” about Hillary Clinton’s health — as well as what he believes is her highly antiquated health care.
After evaluating her medical records with friend Dr. Robert Huizenga — yes, the guy from “The Biggest Loser” — Pinsky called the Democratic presidential candidate’s treatment “1950-level care.”
“If we were providing the care that she was receiving, we’d be ashamed to show up in a doctors’ lounge,” he said during a recent radio interview. “We’d be laughed out.”
Specifically, Clinton’s treatment for hypothyroidism is “very unconventional,” in Dr. Drew’s words — that one he said is more like right out of the ’60s.
“Certainly a presidential candidate would get one of the newer anti-coagulants,” Pinsky opined. “What is going on with her health care? It’s bizarre.”

The internist and HLN host also told KABC’s “McIntyre in the Morning” that he’s very worried about the repercussions from Clinton’s head trauma following a fall. Citing the fact that she had to wear prism glasses after the accident, Pinksky said, “That is brain damage.”
And then there’s her very old-fashioned screening for heart disease, which he also picked up by thumbing through her records.
“It just seems like she’s getting care from somebody she met in Arkansas when she was a kid,” Pinsky concluded.
