But a leading sex change doctor told that Jenner's age should be no impediment to his happiness.

"My oldest patient is 93 years of age!" Dr. Harold Reed, M.D told "He produced a letter of medical clearance from his doctor saying he was able to have it done at the age of 93. There is no wrong age."

"Naturally, the most common age is the 20's to 40's," Dr. Reed, who has performed more than 2,000 gender reassignment surgeries, continued. " but there are many patients over their 60's."

Slamming his fellow doc for the insensitive comments about Jenner, Dr. Reed said, "I see Dr. Phil as being 60 percent entertainment. He is no Dr. Gupta."

McGraw blatantly questioned the reasons behind Jenner's sex change, indicating that he thinks Jenner is too old for sex.

"I don't know. He's kind of like past prime, for that right?" he joked.

Kimmel came to Jenner's defense, saying, "He's an Olympic Gold Medalist! I wouldn't put anything past him. He may be a champion in the bed."
