Travis Lane Stork (born 1972) is an American emergency physician and television personality, best known for appearing on The Bachelor, and as the host of the syndicated daytime talk show The Doctors.


Stork graduated magna cum laude as a member of Phi Beta Kappa Society from Duke University, and earned his medical degree with honors from the University of Virginia, where he was a member of Alpha Omega Alpha.[1][2] He thereafter began an emergency medicine residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.[3]

During his residency, Stork appeared on Season 8 of The Bachelor. During the season finale of the show, Stork chose schoolteacher Sarah Stone, who coincidentally lived only a few blocks away from his Nashville residence. However, only one week after the show's pre-taped finale aired, the couple announced that their relationship was already over.[4]

Stork completed his residency, then practiced medicine in the emergency room at Vanderbilt and a hospital in Colorado.[2][3]

Stork was the lead host on The Doctors, a Los Angeles-based daytime medical/talk show, beginning with its debut in September 2008 and continuing through its renewal in 2014 for the 2015-2016 season.[5] On the show, Stork led a panel of three other physicians from different fields (pediatrics, plastic surgery and obstetrics) who discussed health issues and answered audience questions.[6] The idea came about from a series of segments that were featured on Dr. Phil, to which Stork was also a frequent contributor.[1][7][8] The show won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Informative in 2010.[9] A 2014 study in the British Medical Journal determined that "evidence supported 63%, contradicted 14%, and was not found for 24%" of recommendations made by the panel of doctors, and that "the public should be skeptical about recommendations made on medical talk shows."[10]

In October 2013, Stork joined telehealth company MDLIVE as chairman of its Medical Advisory Board;[11] as of March 2015 he was no longer affiliated with the company.[12]

Stork has published several books for the general public about health,[13] including The Lean Belly Prescription and The Doctor's Diet, both of which made the New York Times Best Seller list in the "Advise, How to & Miscellaneous" category.[14][15]

Personal life[edit]

Stork has said that his parents were midwestern farmers, and that he was the first doctor in his family.[6]

Stork married pediatrician Charlotte Brown on June 30, 2012.[16] They divorced in the spring of 2015.[17]
