Dr. Oz Speaks Out After Top Physicians Demand His Dismissal from Columbia University

Under fire from physicians demanding his dismissal from New York's Columbia University, Dr. Mehmet Oz is speaking out – and seemingly taking one of his critics specifically to task.

"I bring the public information that will help them on their path to be their best selves," Oz said in a statement to PEOPLE on Friday.

"We provide multiple points of view, including mine which is offered without conflict of interest. That doesn't sit well with certain agendas which distort the facts," said Oz, referring to a clash with sustainable agriculture company Monsanto over his opinions on genetically modified foods.

Continued Oz, "For example, I do not claim that GMO foods are dangerous, but believe that they should be labeled like they are in most countries around the world. I will address this on the show next week."

Dr. Oz said on his Facebook page that a plumber from New York, David Justino, acted quickly by removing his belt and using it as a tourniquet to stanch the bleeding from the woman's leg.
