Bill Clinton’s doctor offered reassurance tonight that there is “no evidence of [a] heart attack or damage to his heart” and that the former president’s prognosis is “excellent.” Clinton was hospitalized this afternoon after experiencing chest pains and had two stents placed in a coronary artery.
Dr. Allen Schwartz of New York-Presbyterian Hospital told the press Thursday night that Clinton will likely return home tomorrow. Schwartz added that Clinton has adhered to his diet and exercise program since his quadruple bypass surgery in 2004 and that this procedure was “part of the natural history” of the bypass. TMZ is reporting that Hillary Clinton is en route from Washington to be with her husband.
