The psychiatrist briefed Congress, in general terms I presume, about the mental fitness of Trump, for duty. The APA does seem to dissuade psychiatrists from making medical diagnosis of a person, without actually examining that person, and the psychiatrist has not done this. But lets be real, it is extremely unlikely that Trump would consent to this.

She briefed a group of both Dems and Repubs, but apparently, no Republican has called for a mental evaluation of Trump yet, at least publicly.

The article indicates;

Raskin has introduced a bill called the "Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity Act," which would use the 25th Amendment of the Constitution to create a "body" to determine whether the President is unable to execute the powers and duties of his office.

Frankly, its got little shot of passing with Repubs controlling Congress, but I agree that this body should be created, and have the full powers to order an evaluation of the President, and be able to pursue removal from office, if the evaluation merits it.
