PALM BEACH — There will be no doctor in the $18 million house that Dr. Oz just bought in Palm Beach!
The TV star put it up for rent — for a staggering $90,000 A MONTH.
Whoa! Maybe he should have his head examined by a doctor who doesn’t play one on TV!
Dr. Mehmet Oz purchased Louwana, the property at 473 N. County Road earlier this month and the $90K a month he wants from a tenant makes his the most expensive rental in Palm Beach, according to real estate records.
Renting on the island isn’t cheap in general, but Oz’s nearest competitor is $10K less!
For example: You could rent the six-bedroom 326 Via Linda for $80K a month instead.
Or the seven-bathroom 400 Regent Park for $75K, or the five-bedroom 200 Algoma Road for $60K.
And there are condos on the south side available for $3,500 a month.
Maybe Oz thinks he can get a little extra because tenants could run into neighbor Howard Stern on the beach.

If he can manage to get a tenant, the son of Turkish immigrants may gain the respect of the real estate community. Because, unfortunately, the pseudo-scientific claims he makes on his show have not won him the respect of the medical community.
Oz is the second TV personality to buy in the area this fall. In August, we exclusively reported that Rosie O’Donnell plunked down $5.27 million on a Intracoastal property in West Palm Beach.
