Oh, it’s on. A group of doctors have demanded that Columbia University fire Dr. Oz from his teaching position. His medical peers didn’t hold back — calling Dr. Oz a ‘charlatan’ and a danger to the public! Here’s why!

In a letter that tore Dr. Oz, 54, to pieces, ten medical professionals from around the country insisted that Columbia University dump Dr. Oz immediately! These doctors see no room for the famed television personality within the halls of Columbia University and were explicit in saying so. 

Dr. Oz’s Dimissial: Doctors Demand His Firing From Columbia University

On Apr.15, ten prominent medical scholars sent a scathing letter to Lee Goldman, the Dean of the Faculties and Medicine at Columbia University in New York City. In this message, the group was upset that a doctor accused of promoting medically unsound products was a part of the famed medical school.

“Dr. Oz has repeatedly shown disdain for science and for evidence-based medicine, as well as baseless and relentless opposition to genetic engineering of food crops,” stated the letter, which can be read in full at Buzzfeed.

Pardon us as we say — OUCH!

Dr. Oz is the Vice Chair of the Department of Surgery at Columbia’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, which has some of the biggest names in the medical community fuming!

“He’s a quack and a fake and a charlatan,” Dr. Henry Miller, one of the doctors who signed the letter, said to the NY Daily News.

The condemnation continued, as the letter accused Dr. Oz of “manifest[ing] an egregious lack of integrity of promoting quack treatments and cures in the interest of financial gain.”

The doctors ended their letter with a warning, that “members of the public are being misled and endangered, which makes Dr. Oz’s presence on the faculty of a prestigious medical institution.”

In the medicinal world, that’s the equivalent of a mic drop. Boom!

This isn’t the first time Dr. Oz has come under fire for his “magic weight-loss cure” During an November 2014 Q&A on Twitter, Oz got ripped to shreds by twitter users, asking him “What has been your most profitable lie for money so far?” and “is quackery a miracle weight lost cure?”

What do you think about the Doctors letter calling for Dr. Oz’s expulsion, HollywoodLifers?
