Dr. Mehmet Oz and his tribute to his father

The host of The Dr. Oz Show on Sony lost his father recently. His dad, Dr. Mustafa Oz was a great soul, according to the proud son. Earlier this week, Dr. Mehmet, 58 uploaded an emotional tribute for the departed soul. He posted several pictures of his father and wrote:

“My dad passed away today at the age of 93. Dad changed everyone who met him. I remember as a child running behind his fast-moving legs while he made hospital rounds. Even as he aged and his legs no longer raced along, his mind never slowed down,”

Talking about how he entered medicine, Dr. Mehmet wrote:

“I fell in love with medicine after witnessing my dad do sometimes painful procedures on desperately sick patients who subsequently thanked him for saving their lives,”

He concluded his post thus:

“The opportunity to help is a powerful aphrodisiac and the responsibility to act should not be squandered, so he insisted that he and his children were ‘The Best,’ a contagious admonition. ❤️”

“He loved to tell the story of when he came to America after completing medical school as a lifelong scholarship student in Turkey and his mother told the pilot to ‘fly slow and low to the ground!’ He was funny, fearless, tough, and the best bazaar bargainer. We will miss you, Buyuk Baba. ❤️”
