Dr. Phil Tells His Critics: "Pick Up Your Remote and Move On"

Dr. Phil says his critics should stop smearing him and move on.

In an interview where he's asked if TV doctors should be held to the same standard as a regular physician, Dr. Phil says the two shouldn't be compared.

"I think it's a very different context," says McGraw. "What I'm doing is dealing with people as teaching tools."

"And the people that are at home, their situation is not the same. The advice I give to a guest on the show is intended for the guest on the show."

"What I hope it does is stimulate the thinking of the people at home. They might say 'You know, their situation is not the same but there are elements of it that I can relate to that makes me thinks about the changes I can make in my own life.'"

"Is it the same as if I had a doctor-patient relationship with that person? No, it's not. Because if it was I would've done a one on one evaluation, I would've put them through a battery of tests, rendered a diagnosis and a treatment plan for them."

Phil then says that if a patient came on him and asked whether he should go on a TV show to air their problems. He would say "absolutely" if it was anything like his show.

Finally, when host Rebecca Jarvis bluntly asks him what he would say to his critics that say he's "doing more harm than good," Phil simply responds: "Pick up your remote, move on."
