In an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail, Dr. James Hamblin has revealed that he has cut ties with Dr. Oz after over a decade of working with him as one of his medical advisors because he finds the physician’s increasingly political views disagreeable. ‘I want nothing to do with him,’ said Hamblin, who goes by the name Jimmy when he’s not on television or writing articles about health and medicine. ‘He’s made me want to puke.’
A doctor associated with Oz said he no longer wants anything to do with the TV personality after learning about his political views
For over 20 years, Mehmet Oz, better known as Dr. Oz has been a familiar face on television screens, promoting weight loss and anti-aging remedies and health and wellness tips. Though a one-time respected doctor, not everything is as it seems with the 55-year-old celebrity physician – He is coming under fire for his involvement in the political arena of President Donald Trump’s administration. Last month, President Trump nominated him for membership on the president’s Council on Sports Fitness and Nutrition. Dr.
Lifestyle medicine expert Travis Stork quit appearing on Oz’s show, saying in an interview published Friday that he didn’t want to be associated politically with the TV host and now-politician
I don’t want anything to do with that guy, Stork said in the interview published by GQ. I’ve been on his show four times and if I have a fifth appearance, I need it to be one where he thinks I’m going to help people.
Stork tweeted about the GQ story later Friday, writing: This is a hard conversation for me because my thoughts on healthcare as well as politics are different than his.
Stork, 40, has endorsed single-payer health care in recent interviews and also co-authored a book titled Living Well Without Limits after struggling with his own medical problems.
Stork said he was shocked at hearing about Oz’s strong support for Hillary Clinton in an article from STAT
That was the moment I decided I don’t want anything to do with him, said Stork in an interview on Fox News Channel Friday morning. I just didn’t think it was appropriate for a medical doctor who presents himself as a science-based guy, as a health expert … he says all of these nice things about Hillary Clinton and then he also says she had pneumonia which is absolutely untrue.
As reported by STAT, which stands for Science & Tech and is a sister publication of The Boston Globe, Oz criticized Republican nominee Donald Trump on his show in September 2015, saying that he has blood coming out of his eyes and other parts of his body. Stork said that those comments are an example of why he needs to back away from Oz: To call Donald Trump someone who is mentally ill or unstable … it’s just not appropriate for a medical doctor to say that about anyone, especially when there’s no history presented … I thought it was very unprofessional and I don’t want anything to do with him, Stork said.

He also said it was really disappointing when a report came out linking Dr. Mehmet Oz—who shares a last name but is not related—to an alleged corruption scandal involving Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan
In a new interview, Dr. Jerry Lee Johnson has gone public in saying that he no longer associates with the celebrity physician because of his politics: I want nothing to do with him. Johnson also said it was really disappointing when a report came out linking Dr. Mehmet Oz—who shares a last name but is not related—to an alleged corruption scandal involving Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
In an interview on NPR, Johnson explained that his association with Mehmet had done incredible things for his career, but now he felt like he was betraying himself by remaining close to the actor and author given their political differences.
Travis isn’t done playing doctor on TV yet
In a perfect world, Travis would have continued to work with Dr. Oz and eventually move up the ranks at Columbia Presbyterian until he was head of the medical staff. But he was unable to accept what he considered Dr. Oz’s fear-mongering about President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016 and, this past summer, about safety concerns for vaccines on a show dedicated to health issues after reading reports that said the scientist who made those claims on the show had left the research center where it had been conducted without sharing his data or conclusions – because they didn’t support his view – before peer-reviewing them (or allowing them to be challenged). It went beyond not wanting anything do with him, Travis says.I want nothing to do with him.
