Doctor Oz is the most influential doctor in America.

Healthcare professionals know first-hand that this influence is harming patients.

Dr. Oz has an unprecedented platform to share important, accurate medical information to millions of people. However, he often uses this platform to promote unproven and sometimes dangerous medical therapies. While he was recently "grilled" by Congress over his support of bogus medical treatments, he continues to mislead the public.

People often ask: What's the harm? This isn't the first time sensationalist health claims have been promoted in the media. But doctors and other healthcare providers struggle daily to help patients who have been misled by Dr. Oz and the quacks to which he gives a platform.

As medical professionals we are coming together to tell Dr. Oz, organized medicine, and the public about the real harms we are witnessing.
LET'S SHARE OUR STORIES

DoctorsInOz is in the process of collecting and organizing the many first-hand accounts of patients being misled by false medical information in the mainstream media. Together we can raise awareness, hold the media accountable, and spark real change.

Are you a doctor or other healthcare professional who has witnessed patients being misled by bogus medical information? Tell us your experiences now by emailing stories@doctorsinoz.com.

DELIVERING THE MESSAGE


Once these stories have been collected and organized, we will present them to Dr. Oz himself, the media outlets who host him, organized medicine groups such as the AMA, and the public.

We will demand a thoughtful response and meaningful change.

With your permission, we may also share some of these stories on this website. If you desire, your experiences can be presented in a way that protects your identity, but we ask for enough information to ensure we are sharing honest accounts. We promise to present your stories as accurately and fairly as possible.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Where can I find more information about the false medical information Dr. Oz has promoted?

The following are articles from reputable sources. We had no involvement in these articles and don't personally endorse every statement or claim made in them.

    New York Times
    Chicago Tribune
    Washington Post
    Los Angeles Times
    New Yorker
    Salon
    Science-Based Medicine
    Slate
    FDA letter to Dr. Oz


I'm a patient (or family member). Can I tell my story?

Absolutely! While we are specifically encouraging doctors and medical professionals to participate, anyone with first-hand experience can get involved.

When are you going to present these stories?

We are not providing a timeline at this moment because we want to ensure many voices are heard and the presentation is impactful.

Are you picking on Dr. Oz? Aren't there many other sources of misleading health information?

Dr. Oz is certainly not the only doctor to use the media to present bad information. However, his television show reaches millions of loyal viewers daily. Through Dr. Oz's hard work, his show is now an unprecedented platform for the immediate dissemination of medical information to the average American. Improving this platform is an important public health concern.

Aren't there bigger issues facing our healthcare system than a TV doctor?

There are many financial, political, and scientific issues challenging American healthcare. But we say that trust is the foundation of the doctor-patient relationship for good reason. Doctors can't help patients if patients won't trust us to provide balanced, evidence-based information. When a doctor uses the mainstream media to consistently promote unproven or misleading medical claims, the public's trust in doctors will inevitably erode.

Are you trying to stifle free speech?

We are not asking for Dr. Oz to be taken off the air or for him to be banned from promoting what he believes in. However, free speech works because various people can publicly disagree and start a conversation. Furthermore, we believe doctors have a responsibility to use their right to free speech prudently. The public trusts doctors to present information more carefully than the average TV personality.
