Who hasn’t heard of Dr. Oz? The know-it-all (in the bestest sense) TV personality seems to be informed on all health-related topics. And if you ever wondered whether Dr. Oz is actually his real name, then the answer is YES, the charismatic star, under his full name Mehmet Cengiz Oz, is actually of Turkish-American origins with a very eclectic family – his mother’s side is very secular, while his father’s side is very religious.
