“The Dr. Oz Show” announced Thursday the hiring of a medical expert who worked for Consumer Reports to lead a new unit in charge of researching and verifying scripts, evaluating expert guests, and editing medical animations.

The daytime health advice show brought Dr. Michael Crupain on board in the newly created position of chief of staff of the medical unit. Crupain previously was director of Consumer Reports’ Food Safety and Sustainability Center.

Dr. Mehmet Oz, the program’s host, was publicly slammed as a “quack,” “a fake and a charlatan” by 10 prominent doctors who wanted him removed from his prestigious post as vice chairman of the Columbia medical school’s department of surgery.

Oz contended the attack was spurred by his support for labeling genetically modified foods.
