“Dr. Oz doesn’t walk or talk like a duck — but 10 prominent critics say he’s still a quack,” reports NY Daily.
According to the article, “'A fake and a charlatan': Doctors call for Dr. Oz to be dismissed from Columbia surgery faculty over alleged quack science,” credited and respected doctors have sent a firm message to Columbia University’s dean of faculties for Health Sciences and Medicine that they want the TV doctor removed from position of vice chairman of Columbia University’s department of surgery.
“He’s a quack and a fake and a charlatan,” says Dr. Henry Miller to the NY Daily. “We find it a shame that he has fled from the ethical and responsible practice of medicine to exploit his television popularity.”
According to USA Today, the doctors have taken issue with Dr. Oz’s position against genetically modified organisms, along with endorsements of weight-loss products that have not been proven effective.
“Dr. Oz is guilty of either outrageous conflicts of interest or flawed judgments about what constitutes appropriate medical treatments, or both,” concludes the letter. “Whatever the nature of his pathology, members of the public are being misled and endangered, which makes Dr. Oz’s presence on the faculty of a prestigious medical institution unacceptable.”
