Days after Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had to leave a 9/11 Commemoration Ceremony early due to pneumonia, Donald Trump is seeing a doctor — Dr. Oz.

On Wednesday, the Republican presidential nominee sat down with Mehmet Oz, a.k.a Dr. Oz, to discuss Trump’s own health, as well as his views on national health care policy. During the interview on The Dr. Oz Show, which will air on Thursday, Trump shared with the host the results of a physical examination that he underwent last week with his own personal doctor.

In the clip above, Dr. Oz asks Trump why he doesn’t share his medical records if his health is as good as he says. “I really have no problem with doing it, I have it right here,” he replied. He then said to the audience, “Should I do it? I don’t care. Should I do it? I have no problem.” As the audience responded with applause, Trump pulled out his records and handed them to Dr. Oz.

In a second clip from the show, Dr. Oz brought up the issue of Trump’s age; should he win the vote, Trump, who is 70, would be the oldest newly elected president. “Yeah, just about the same age as Ronald Reagan, and Hillary is a year behind me,” Trump responded. “I would say just based on my life… I don’t know if this makes sense: I feel as good today as I did when I was 30.”

Dr. Oz ran Trump through the ordinary on-boarding process of having a new patient, which meant going through a full health review, including discussion of his family medical history, respiratory health, hormone levels, nervous system, bladder or prostate health, and history of cancer.

Ahead of the interview, Dr. Oz shared what he would and wouldn’t ask the controversial candidate. “The metaphor for me is it’s the doctor’s office, the studio,” he said. “So I’m not going to ask him questions he doesn’t want to have answered, and I also don’t want to talk about anybody else. We’re not going to be talking about Secretary Clinton, for sure, and I don’t want to talk about things that are outside of the health purview.”

Later in the episode, Ivanka Trump made an appearance to discuss the Trump campaign’s recent childcare and maternity leave initiative.

The full installment of The Dr. Oz Show airs Thursday.
