Turkish-American cardiothoracic surgeon, author, and television personality, better known as Dr. Oz.

He first appeared on the The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2004, and later on Larry King Live and other TV programs. In 2009, The Dr. Oz Show, a daily television program focusing on medical issues and personal health was launched by Winfrey's Harpo Productions and Sony Pictures.

Oz and his wife Lisa have been married since 1985 and have four children. His eldest daughter is author and television host Daphne Oz. He is fluent in English and Turkish, and a holder of Turkish and American citizenship, having served in the Turkish Army to retain his Turkish citizenship.

Oz grew up in a mixed Muslim environment where his father's family practised more traditional Islam, while his mother's family were more secular Muslims. Oz identifies himself as a Muslim and says that he has been influenced by the mysticism of Sufi Muslims from Central Turkey, as well as the ideas of Emanuel Swedenborg, the Swedish scientist, philosopher, and Christian theologian.

In August 2010, Oz was diagnosed with a pre-cancerous polyp in the colon during a routine colonoscopy which was performed as part of his show. Oz said that the procedure likely saved his life.

In June 2022, Oz became the Republican nominee in the 2022 U.S. Senate election in Pennsylvania. He lost the general election in November to Democratic nominee John Fetterman. Oz was the first Muslim candidate to be nominated by either major party for U.S. Senate. He adopted mostly conservative positions after launching his campaign.
