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.
