If Dr. Mehmet Oz follows any philosophy it would be there is nothing bad about feeling good. For 30 years, the Cleveland-born cardiologist and media personality has encouraged others—including Oprah Winfrey—to lead healthy, productive lives. He’s authored seven best-selling wellness books, hosts a seven-time Emmy Award–winning television show, and teaches surgery at Columbia University.
In 2010, he co-founded Sharecare, an app that provides users with health and wellness assistance, like finding a doctor. In his downtime, he enjoys living the good life with his wife, Lisa, at Louwana, their Addison Mizner–designed oceanfront estate in Palm Beach.
