Dr. Mehmet Oz will air an episode of his syndicated talk show today that specifically takes on the group of 10 doctors from around the country who wrote to a Columbia dean about him. The group suggested last week that Oz promotes “quack treatments” of weight loss supplements with no scientific proof that they work.
In response to a group of 10 doctors who sent a letter to Columbia University this week urging the university to remove Oz from its faculty for what they called an “egregious lack of integrit,” the talk show host said his show provides “multiple points of view” including his own and that his own views are offered “without conflict of interest.”
“Dr. Oz has repeatedly shown disdain for science and for evidence-based medicine,” said a letter 10 physicians sent to a Columbia University dean earlier this week. Led by Dr. Henry Miller of California’s Stanford University, the doctors wrote that Oz “has manifested an egregious lack of integrity by promoting quack treatments and cures in the interest of personal financial gain.”
While his day-time health show reaches millions, Dr. Oz has come under fire for endorsing nutrition supplements with dubious efficacy. Today, Oz was on Capitol Hill to testify on a Senate hearing about such weight loss scams, and to address his role in providing fodder for false advertisements.

Dr. Mehmet Oz led almost 100 racers in a 5K run down the Las Vegas Strip at 6:30 a.m. this morning as part of the ongoing PromaxBDA Station Summit. Oz, host of Sony Pictures Television’s recently renewed Dr. Oz, led racers from Planet Hollywood down the Strip and back. Oz, a cardiovascular surgeon at New York’s Presbyterian Hospital, is at the annual gathering meeting with stations that carry his show. Sony and Oz stations are reviewing marketing plans for the talk show’s fifth season premiering this fall. In addition to the 5K run, Oz appeared on a morning news show and an afternoon talk show on Meredith’s Las Vegas Fox affiliate KVVU.
As a cardiac surgeon, Dr. Mehmet Oz is used to paying attention to details. And he brings that same laser focus to his Sony-distributed talk show. He visits stations, tapes promotional spots for them and advertisers, does interviews, gathers feedback and pours over ratings books to learn what works and what doesn’t. Those are some of the reasons he’s got syndication’s No. 2 talker.
