The Doctors hosts

Dr. Travis Stork

Dr. Travis Stork

Dr. Travis Stork is an emergency room physician, who practices at a trauma center in his native Colorado when he is not in front of the cameras for THE DOCTORS. His credentials include graduating Magna Cum Laude from Duke University and earning his M.D. with Honors from the University of Virginia. He completed his three-year residency as an emergency room doctor at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.
A fervent believer in good health, Dr. Stork practices what he preaches and likes to teach by example. With his role on THE DOCTORS, he hopes to enlighten viewers on how to attain and maintain good health. “People don’t realize how much control they have over their own health,” he said. “Oftentimes, when people come to the ER, it’s already too late. There’s nothing I’d be more proud of as a doctor than reducing the work load for America’s hospitals by teaching viewers how to avoid preventable illnesses.”
The self-described “adrenalin junkie” greatly enjoys his work in the ER. “You never know what’s going to be coming through the door,” he said. “I’m most passionate about taking care of patients. It’s an honor for me to apply the skills I’ve learned to help people in their time of crisis.”
Dr. Stork is perhaps best known to television audiences from his starring title role in the popular ABC primetime series, “The Bachelor,” during the series’ eighth season set in Paris, France. It was his appearance on that series that brought him to the attention of Dr. Phil McGraw and executive producer, Jay McGraw. What sold Dr. Stork on being involved in the new daytime show was when Dr. Phil told him that he could educate more people in a one-hour episode than during his entire life in the ER.
Dr. Stork has been a regular guest expert on “Dr. Phil” since March 2007. He has also appeared on the syndicated talk show, “Rachael Ray.” Drawing on his personal and professional experiences, he wrote his first book, Don’t Be That Girl: A Guide to Finding the Confident, Rational Girl Within, which was published in January 2008 by Simon & Schuster. In the book, Dr. Stork reveals why women must first believe in themselves if they hope to find the type of relationship that will bring them the fulfillment and happiness they deserve.
An avid outdoorsman, Dr. Stork is a devotee of mountain and road biking, kayaking and hiking in the Rocky Mountains with his dog Nala. He has participated in numerous fund-raisers for organizations such as the Leukemia & Lymphoma
