Who is White House physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor and what are his close ties to the Biden family?

Dr. Kevin O’Connor has been assigned as the White House physician for President Joe Biden. Prior to this role, he served as the primary care physician to Biden from 2009 throughout his vice presidency, and continued doing so even after Biden left the White House, up until he was elected president.

Dr. O’Connor has been serving the medical profession for over 20 years and has been with the military for more than two decades. He retired from the military in 2019. He is a longtime doctor in the U.S. Army, specializing in emergency medicine. He has been a physician to the president since 2006 and has served in Iraq and Afghanistan as a doctor for the Army’s special operations divisions. He has also provided medical support on official trips to over 70 countries.

The ties of Dr. Kevin O’Connor with the Biden family came into the spotlight after he examined Mr. Biden for multiple health concerns during his vice presidency; including treatment for his various health issues such as sprained foot, atrial fibrillation, and sinusitis. He has issued several detailed medical reports on Biden and has assured the American public that Biden is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency.

In January 2021, Biden picked Dr. Kevin O’Connor as his White House physician, replacing President Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean P. Conley. This shows the level of faith and confidence Biden has in Dr. O’Connor which is a testament to their close professional ties.
