Oz: The $100 Million (Plus) Man

Dr. Mehmet Oz

We knew he was wealthy. We just didn’t know how wealthy.

Celebrity heart surgeon Mehmet Oz filed a financial disclosure required of all candidates for the U.S. Senate that indicates he and his wife have assets worth somewhere between $100 and $400 million, according to research from the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The exact figures aren’t known, as the forms require candidates to list in a dollar range, rather than require the exact amount.

Oz reported earning $10 million in 2021, including $2 million in salary and $193,000 as supervising producer as the host of “The Dr. Oz Show,” and an additional $7.07 million derived through ownership of Oz Media LLC.

His filing also indicates a minimum of $11.5 million in non-public stock in Asplundh, a tree-trimming business owned by his wife’s family. Oz also owns approximately $6 million in corporate stock from Wawa, the gas station/convenience store chain, while also owning at least $5 million in non-public stock in Five Star Travel Corp.

For a candidate that has “gone to battle with big tech,” Oz and his wife own between $1.25 million and $5.5 million in stock in Alphabet, the parent company of Google. They have $6 million to $27 million invested in Amazon, between $1.7 million and $6.55 million in Microsoft, and between $1.3 million to $5.7 million in Apple.

Derided as a “carpet-bagger,” Oz and his wife bought a home in Huntingdon Valley in the Lower Moreland School District last December. According to Realtor.com, the eight-bedroom, 7.5 bath, 8,000-square foot home on a 34-acre tract sold for $3.1 million.

It joins a host of other residences, including two in Cliffside Park, N.J., a vacation home in Palm Beach, Fla. and they also own a cattle farm in Okeechobee, Fla.

He is not the only multi-millionaire in the GOP Senate field. David McCormick, former CEO of hedge fund Bridgewater Associates, has yet to file a disclosure, while Carla Sands, former U.S. Ambassador to Denmark, filed a disclosure in 2021 indicating assets between $35 and $152 million.

  1. It’s over now, the greatest leader in the history of the conservative movement has endorsed Oz.

  2. GOP buys elections that it cannot cheat and steal by other dirty tricks and voter suppression.

    1. Dems buy elections that it cannot cheat and steal by other dirty tricks and fraudulent votes

  3. Oz and McCormick both want to buy a membership into an exclusive club that only had 100 members. Pa voters better wise up to this. While I may not share the political agendas of the other Republican candidates not named Oz or McCormick, this state and nation will be better served if one of them gets the nomination.

  4. I think I read OZ spent 10 million on the race out of his own pocket. McCormick is a hedge fund wizard. Getting elected to the US Senate with modest means is like winning the Powerball—could happen and not likely.

    1. Santorum did it, because his opponent was awful. With either Ozzie or Hedgie as the Repube candidate, The Dems could run a street person and walk away with that Senate seat.
