Three men, including President Trump’s former bodyguard and one of his company’s lawyers, showed up at his Manhattan doctor’s office last year and confiscated the president’s medical records, a new report said Tuesday.
Dr. Harold Bornstein said the “raid” happened two days after he told a reporter that he had prescribed a hair loss drug for the intricately coiffed commander-in-chief, NBC News reported.
Bornstein told the network that he felt “raped, frightened and sad” when Keith Schiller, Trump’s longtime former bodyguard, Trump Organization lawyer Alan Garten and another unidentified “large man” came to his Park Avenue office to collect the president’s records on Feb. 3, 2017.
At the time, Schiller was the director of Oval Office operations at the White House.
“They must have been here for 25 or 30 minutes. It created a lot of chaos,” Bornstein said.
Bornstein — who before the election famously claimed that Trump would be the healthiest president in US history — also said the trio ordered him to take down a framed 8-by-10 photo of himself and Trump that had been hanging on the wall in the waiting room.
Bornstein told NBC the men did not give him a form authorizing the release of the records and signed by the president — known as a HIPAA release — a violation of federal patient privacy law.
A source said they had a letter to Bornstein from then-White House doctor Ronny Jackson.
Bornstein said the men grabbed the only copies of the president’s medical records he had, including lab reports in his name as well as others under the pseudonyms that Bornstein’s office used for the president.
Bornstein said the president fired him after he told the New York Times that Trump took Propecia, a drug prescribed to stimulate hair growth in balding men.
The doctor also told the Times that he prescribed Trump drugs for rosacea, a skin condition common in light-skinned people of Northern European descent, and cholesterol.
Bornstein said he had earlier told Rhona Graff, Trump’s longtime assistant, “You know, I should be the White House physician.”
After the story ran on Feb. 1, 2017, Bornstein said, Graff called him and said, “So you wanted to be the White House doctor? Forget it, you’re out.’”
Two days later, Trump’s three loyalists came to his office.
“I couldn’t believe anybody was making a big deal out of a drug to grow his hair that seemed to be so important. And it certainly was not a breach of medical trust to tell somebody they take Propecia to grow their hair. What’s the matter with that?” he said.
During the campaign, Bornstein — Trump’s personal physician for more than three decades — wrote a letter declaring that Trump’s health was “astonishingly excellent.”
“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” he wrote.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request from The Post for comment.
