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."

Following a very rough couple of weeks, Camille Grammer says she's doing well – even without the support of her allegedly abusive boyfriend.
"I'm feeling great," the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells Dr. Mehmet Oz on The Dr. Oz Show Thursday, just four weeks after undergoing a radical hysterectomy for early stage endometrial cancer.
"Once in a while I'll get a little pain here and there, but I'm walking around," she adds. "I was able to go trick-or-treating with my kids and my life is moving forward and I'm feeling very well."

Dr. Mehmet Oz proved that he doesn't just play a physician on TV when he rushed to help an accident victim hurt outside his offices near Rockefeller Center in New York City on Tuesday.
The cardiothoracic surgeon and host of The Dr. Oz Show hurried to the scene when a taxi driver lost control of his cab, driving onto the sidewalk and into a group of unsuspecting pedestrians. A woman, reported by the Daily News to be a British tourist, lost her left foot.
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.
