President Obama made a trip to his doctor Saturday afternoon for treatment of a sore throat and was diagnosed with “soft tissue inflammation related to acid reflux” after a routine CT scan.
Mr. Obama left the White House shortly after 2 p.m., reporters in tow, to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. He was being examined by his physician, Capt. Ronny Jackson.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the president has been complaining of a sore throat and that Dr. Jackson recommended he go to Walter Reed for diagnostic tests.
