Dr. Oz Defends Himself Against Columbia Doctors: My Talk Show Is Not a 'Medical Show'

Originally posted 04/24/2015 08:30AM

The battle between Dr. Mehmet Oz and the medical community continued on Friday morning as Oz addressed the concerns of Columbia University faculty members on the Today show.

Unlike the 10 physicians led by Dr. Henry Miller who called for Oz's dismissal from the university at which he is a vice-chair and professor for the department of surgery, eight members of Columbia's faculty were more measured in an op-ed written in USA Today Thursday in which they suggested that, perhaps, Oz begin adding the following disclaimer to his show: "The opinions expressed on this program may not be evidence-based or part of accepted medical practice and have no endorsement from Columbia University."

Dr. Oz Defends Himself in Op-Ed, Devotes Entire Episode to Blasting His Critics

Originally posted 04/23/2015 11:35AM

In response to a group of physicians demanding his dismissal from the faculty of New York's Columbia University, Dr. Mehmet Oz has not only penned an op-ed defending himself but has devoted an entire episode of The Dr. Oz Show to investigating each physician and their ties to causes that allegedly present the very conflicts of interest of which Oz himself has been accused.

"I have long believed that doctors should not fight their battles – or each other – in public, but now I believe I must," says Oz, 54, in a sneak peek at Thursday's episode, adding that he is being accused of "promoting treatments and cures in the interest of personal financial gain," which he insists is not true.

Oz says that he is being targeted, baselessly, for an "opposition" to the genetic engineering of food crops. "Again, it's not true," he says. "I have never judged GMO foods, but, just like 64 countries around the world, I support GMO labeling so you can decide on the foods for your family."

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."

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."
