Dr. Oz Show Coming Soon – From Surgery to Television and More
Posted Sep 07 2009 10:20pm
The website is up and going, complete with a link to follow on Twitter. What makes Dr. Oz unique I think is passion. When someone has passion for what they do, it shows, and if you have ever seen him on Oprah, well one show is all it takes to see that.
I have quite a few of his videos and appearances here at the blog and the most fascinating of all is the one where he explains regenerative medicine. I have done some interviews too with Cook Medical on the same subject, the guy who grew his finger back with pixie dust for example and you can search and find more information and use the link below to read up. The related reading below has some of the former posts relative to Dr. Oz below. BD
