The White House has denied reports that President Joe Biden is being treated for Parkinson's disease, following concerns raised after a neurologist specializing in the illness visited the White House eight times in the past year. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to confirm the visits, citing privacy and security reasons, but stated that Biden had only seen a neurologist three times as part of his annual physical exams and is not being treated for Parkinson's. The issue has come to light after Biden stumbled during a debate with Republican Donald Trump.
