Hillary Clinton’s physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, said Tuesday that the Democratic candidate is still “fit to serve as President.”

According to the Associated Press, Bardack said that the former secretary of state is recovering from a bout of pneumonia, which has sidelined her from the campaign trail for the last three days.

Clinton raised suspicions about her health after becoming “overheated at a 9/11 memorial service in New York City on Sunday and leaving the event early. Her campaign later announced that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday.

Many critics have raised concerns about Clinton’s health, some accusing her of hiding a serious illness and pointing to her frequent cough as evidence that she may be unfit to serve a full term as commander in chief.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump made an appearance on “The Dr. Oz Show” on Wednesday, at which time the GOP nominee surprised the host with the results of a recent physical.

A campaign spokeswoman issued a statement confirming that Trump handed Dr. Oz a one-page summary of the physical he underwent last week.

“Mr. Trump shared with Dr. Oz the results of his physical examination performed last week by Dr. Harold Bornstein, M.D. of Lenox Hill Hospital, whom has been Mr. Trump’s personal physician for many years,” the statement read.

Details of the episode are sparse, as the taping — scheduled to air Thursday — was closed to the media.

But a news release from the show said that Dr. Oz took Trump “through a full review of systems including the following: nervous system; head and neck; hormone levels; cardiovascular health and related medications; respiratory health; gastrointestinal health; bladder or prostate health; dermatological health; history of cancer.”
