Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump revealed on Wednesday the results of a recent physical exam during a taping of “The Dr. Oz Show” with Dr. Mehmet Oz.

The episode, according to a press release from the show, will air on television Thursday and will go over Trump’s “personal health, his views on major health care policy including [his] recently announced child care plan and the major health care issues facing this country.”

The appearance on the cable show comes amid focus on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s health. Clinton, who has had a noticeable persistent cough, made news over the weekend after she was filmed leaving a 9-11 memorial service early and fainted as she was being put into a vehicle. Her campaign later said she had been diagnosed with pneumonia days earlier, though had not disclosed that publicly.

Trump’s physical, according to the press release, was conducted again by physician Dr. Harold Bornstein, whose past letter on Trump’s health raised eyebrows after claiming Trump’s “physical strength and stamina are extraordinary.” Bornstein also stated that Trump would “be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”

According to the The Dr. Oz Show, the episode does a “full review of systems” including the nervous system, head and neck, hormone levels, cardiovascular health and related medications, respiratory health, gastrointestinal health, bladder or prostate health, history of cancer and family medical history.

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, also appears on the episode.
