Many physicians are concerned over Hillary Clinton's health — 5 insights

An Association of American Physicians and Surgeons survey found physicians are concerned about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's health.

Here are five insights:

1. Of the 250 responding physicians, almost 71 percent said concerns over Ms. Clinton's health are  "serious — could be disqualifying for the position of President of the United States."

2. Twenty percent of physicians said while these concerns are likely exaggerated, Ms. Clinton should release medical records to address the concerns.

3. Merely 2.7 percent said the concerns were a political attack against the candidate.

4. Eighty-one percent of respondents know of Ms. Clinton's concussion history and 50 percent were aware of her cerebral sinus thrombosis. Fifty-two percent knew of her history of deep venous thrombosis.

5. Approximately 78 percent of physicians said the concerns did not receive sufficient emphasis by the media and 2.7 percent said the media has given the concerns "too much emphasis."
