Four days after President Donald Trump's doctor resigned, the White House physician for Vice President Mike Pence also left her post.

News of Dr. Jennifer Peña's departure was confirmed by White House officials Friday.

"The vice president's office was informed today by the White House Medical Unit of the resignation," vice presidential spokeswoman Alyssa Farah said. "Physicians assigned to the vice president report to the White House Medical Unit and thus any resignation would go entirely through the Medical Unit, not the vice president's office."

Peña's departure follows Dr. Ronny Jackson's on Monday. Jackson had been Trump's pick to lead the Veterans Affairs Department, but withdrew his nomination amid ethics complaints.

Earlier this week, Democratic senators released a list of allegations against Jackson compiled by 23 current and former colleagues.

The complaints described Jackson as "toxic," "abusive" and "flat-out unethical," while others said he'd engaged in reckless prescribing practices and multiple incidents of drunkenness.

A reason for her resignation was not given, but Peña was among those who made accusations against Jackson, CNN reported.

Jackson called the accusations "completely false and fabricated."
