Dr. Mehmet Oz, best known for his appearances on Oprah Winfrey and The Dr. Oz Show, has issued a statement defending himself against the group of doctors at Columbia University who have called for his dismissal from the Medical School's faculty.

A group of doctors at Columbia University called for Oz to be fired from his faculty position at the college's Medical School. Ten doctors wrote to the Dean of Columbia University's Medical School to complain about Oz and request his dismissal. 

"We are surprised and dismayed that Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons would permit Dr. Mehmet Oz to occupy a faculty appointment," the letter read. "He was repeatedly shown disdain for science and for evidence medicine. He has manifested an egregious lack of integrity by promoting quack treatments and cures in the interest of personal financial gain." 

"Dr. Oz is guilty of either outrageous conflicts of interest or flawed judgements about what constitutes appropriate medical treatments, or both," the letter continued. "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."

As CNN reports, one of the issues in particular is Oz's touting of "miracle drugs for weight loss" which are often not successful and neither are they alternatives to a healthy diet and exercise. 

Columbia University appear to have dismissed the doctors' concerns and claimed that every member of their faculty has the right to express their opinion when it comes to medicine. 

Oz issued a statement soon after the letter came to light and he took a similar stance to the University in claiming his was just one point of view but he was offering it without bias. Indeed, he went so far as to suggest the doctors had some "agenda" of their own. 

"We provide multiple points of view, including mine which is offered without conflict of interest. That doesn't sit well with certain agendas which distort the facts," Oz said in a statement on Facebook.
