Medical Report from Dr. Bornstein MD - how much did a 5 minute letter cost?

What tests did this doctor run that were all "positive" if he didn't see Trump while writing it & wrote the letter in 5 mins? via @nbcnews-

Dr. Bornstein (or is it "stine"?) 

As a registered nurse, I've never seen a physician write a medical report for public disclosure in 5 minutes. I wonder how much money was billed for this consult?

Major questions about Trump’s “doctor” and the medical report emerged in recent days. The doctor who wrote Trump's medical report admitted that he did so in 5 minutes, while a limo waited.

BUSTED: Sanjay Gupta Dismantles Trump’s ‘Bizarre’ Medical Letter and Its Mystery Author

Dr. Sanjay Gupta is an American neurosurgeon and media reporter. He serves as associate chief of the neurosurgery service at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta,

Hillary Clinton released a full, professional medical assessment detailing that she “is in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as President of the United States.” 

Meanwhile, Trump refuses to disclose a similarly detailed medical report, even as he tries to spread false rumors about Clinton's health.  

CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta weighs in, speaking to Anderson Cooper:

Sanjay Gupta: Doesn't sound like a medical document
Dr. Sanjay Gupta made similar statements to CNN’s New Day the day before:
CNN’s Sanjay Gupta questions Trump’s doctor — Bizarre, questionable.

Despite the fact that Donald Trump — and his surrogates — have tried to recently put the focus of emphasis squarely onto Hillary Clinton‘s health, the tactic seems to be backfiring in a disastrous way.
Rather than a full investigation into Clinton’s health woes, the media began poking holes into a bizarre letter written in December about Trump’s health instead. The letter reads as if Trump himself blurted out honorifics about his health and had a doctor sign his name to it. The deeper that Trump pushes into Clinton’s health questions, it seems that more and more is coming to light about the strange language contained in Bornstein’s letter.

“There are some things in the letter with regards to his qualifications that are questionable,” he continued.

The letter, dated December 4, 2015, firmly states, “If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” something Gupta thought was completely off.  (Obviously, Dr. Bornstein did not exam prior presidents so he has no way of knowing who was "healthiest".)

Morover, Bornstein is a gastroenterologist, which is a highly unusual source for a candidate’s medical report. Usually the primary physician gives a report about the overall health of the individual. A gastroenterologist knows about the “gut” of the person, but not much more.

@carolCNN responded on Twitter: “This is not a real letter…it’s from a doctor who treats digestive problems” @kurteichenwald

Another on line comment described: "Then there is also the fact that the medical report was put together in 5 minutes by this “doctor” while waiting for a limo"

Here's my Maine Writer assessment: put Dr. Bornstein under oath and ask him three questions:
  1. How much time had passed between the day he wrote his "5 minute letter" and when he last saw Mr. Trump?
  2. What did Bornstein mean by "all positive" in his letter? 
  3. How much money did he bill Mr. Trump for this 5 minute consult?
