CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J. -- Happy birthday to TV personality Mehmet Oz -- also known as "Dr. Oz" -- who's a Cliffside Park resident. He will be turning 56 this Saturday, June 11.
Oz, born in Cleveland, is a first-generation American whose parents had emigrated from Turkey. He's a cardiothoracic surgeon who did his undergrad at Harvard and got his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
While he's also authored several books, he's perhaps best known for "The Dr. Oz Show," which is now in its seventh season.
