The White House says that the results of the president's medical exam at the clinic will be released before February.

Obama had his last physical exam in October 2011 and was said to be in excellent health and tobacco free. His doctor said the president was physically active, ate a healthy diet, stayed at a healthy weight, and on occasion drank alcohol in moderation.

Obama is 51.
