Dr. Joe comments on Dr. Oz

Sun, 2014-01-26 19:16

The wizardry of Dr. Oz

The surgeon and TV celebrity has succeeded in winning fans and influencing public health debates - which troubles some experts.

Mehmet Oz's followers believe he is a trustworthy, serious-minded (and hot) physician.

His equally fervent flock of critics say he is a fad-foisting, ratings-grubbing (and smart) TV celebrity.

In the 10 years since Oprah dubbed him "America's Doctor," the 53-year-old Oz has shown he is comfortable in both roles.

CSI: Dr. Oz’s Questionable Wizardry

Sun, 2013-12-29 12:46

SKEPTICAL INQUIRER: Miracles are pretty rare events. Except on television’s Dr. Oz Show, where they appear with astonishing frequency. Oz of course doesn’t claim to raise the dead or part the Red Sea, but he does raise people’s hopes of parting with their flab. And he’s certainly not shy about flinging the word miracle about. But it seems miracles fade as quickly as they appear.
