President Trump reportedly required physicians at Walter Reed Medical Center to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) before treating him for an undisclosed health issue last year.

NBC News reported Thursday that at least two physicians at the medical center refused to sign the agreements, and were told that they could not be involved with the president’s treatment.

The White House did not immediately respond to The Hill’s request for comment, or question as to whether a similar arrangement was made before the president was treated for COVID-19 at Walter Reed last weekend.

“Any physician caring for the President is bound by patient physician confidentiality guaranteed under HIPAA, and I’m not going to comment on internal procedures beyond that,” White House spokesperson Judd Deere told NBC News.

The president’s reason for visiting Walter Reed Medical Center in late 2019 remains unknown. Following his visit, the president fired back at his critics over speculation surrounding the trip.
