I have often said that Doctors are little more than pushers and pimps for Big Pharma

That's not exactly the case here.  Mostly, he's just an infomercial host.

Reminds me of a joke I heard that surgeons are the mechanics of doctors.

Being educated doens't make one scrupulous and doesn't mean you know everything.  I'm sure he knows a great deal about how to stop and restart a human heart and fix valves and do bypasses, but that doesn't mean he knows jack about human metabolism or weightloss or that he's not willing to lend his name to something without knowing whether it actually works.

Most people who have their own TV shows like him are full of shiat.

Oz is friends with Dr. Mercola, who got his ass sued by the FDA for falsely claiming his products cured cancer and is a known anti-vaxxer and naturopath (like Dr Oz, IIRC). They also are against western medicine, of course.
 
2014-06-17 11:35:29 PM  
F*ck that guy. I wouldn't trust him to splint a broken finger.
 
2014-06-17 11:36:42 PM  
I think Dr. Oz suffers from "Farkitis" same as anyone with a daily show would.  Eventually you run out of "news" and start to report on just about anything to keep your ratings.  Your producers come up with the bullsh*t story of the day, you read off the prompter, and if it ends up that you just promoted something harmful, well, at least you have the excuse that it's not in your specialty...

You shut your mouth, subby!
According to my father and stepmother, Dr. Oz's word is law! Anything I tell them about is measured against what Dr. Oz has said and whatever they have read in Men's Health magazine.

So, I mean, I really can't take this article seriously, now can I?

And you're an idiot.

In other news, who the fark would listen to a tv "doctor" especially regarding weight loss products? Does no one have critical thinking skills anymore?

He's an irresponsible pandering asshole. Most doctors are.  They bow to the money,

This week, The author of Oregano's Cure-all! shows America how to cure everything that ails you with Oregano.

Today, the author of Oregano Kills! can tell you how to avoid this nightmare plant!

Everyone forgets the 'PhD' guy who wrote 'Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus'
His PhD came from Columbia-Pacific University. He was  Oprah's first bullshiat 'doctor'. 

Shut down in 2000 for basically handing out degrees.

He's been selling out lately something fierce. After his last couple of shows I've lost a lot of respect for him, that and he has a grudge with The Aquabats!.

He also sometimes spouts some heinous misinformation about drugs. I can still remember him claiming on Loveline that LSD permanently altered your brain chemistry.

Also his wife is a reiki therapist (more like money rapist amiright?) which is some bullcaca massage with feeling your aura mumbo jumbo.

So is Dr. Oz. That doesn't make either of them any less full of crap.

Avoid eating garbage.
Eat reasonable amounts of non-garbage food.
Get some exercise.

If you've got a medical issue, go see your doctor.

There. Now you never have to watch Dr. Oz again and can stop trying to chase every medical fad prompted by a poor understanding of the latest clinical study.

Yup. John Gray, or some name like that. They made us watch his videos in the teen psychiatric ward.

I don't know anything about Dr. Phil's background, but Mehmet Oz did get his MD from UPenn, which is one of the top medical schools in the world. He did his residency and is currently affiliated with New York-Presbyterian, which is considered by most to be the top hospital in the NYC metro. Of course, his specialty is heart surgery, so I wouldn't really consider him an expert on anything else.

They forgot to clack their heels together and say "there's no figure like hourglass"
 
2014-06-18 12:11:08 AM  
Never trust a doctor who pretends to be an authority on all health matters. A good doctor knows when to get a consult or make a referral to another doctor, or a pharmacist, or a nurse. But showing uncertainty and un-god-like limited powers would make for boring TV.
 
2014-06-18 12:13:57 AM  
And specialists can be experts within their field of specialization and complete and utter morons outside of it. Oz is an excellent case in point. I mean Reiki for fark's sake.

He's a heart surgeon. The head of his department.
He might be many other things besides, but he was a well-known heart surgeon before that. I'm sorry you want him to be a potato.
