Actor Jerry Stiller is doing OK after a medical scare Wednesday night put him in the hospital.

The 91-year-old “Seinfeld” and “King of Queens” star was taken to a New York City medical facility after the person he was with grew concerned about his health. But after a complete evaluation, doctors said all was well.

“There are no signs of a stroke. He’s resting and they’re going to send him home in a couple days. He’s totally fine,” a source close to the family told the Daily News.

Stiller’s family was with him Wednesday night, the source added.

The beloved comic is the father of fellow actors Ben Stiller and Amy Stiller. His longtime wife and comedy partner, Anne Meara, died in 2015.

Stiller’s most famous for portraying two offbeat TV fathers: Frank Costanza, dad to the hapless George, played by Jason Alexander in “Seinfeld,” and later Arthur Spooner, parent of Leah Remini’s character Carrie Heffernan, on “The King of Queens.”
