Travis Lane Stork, MD (born March 9, 1972, in Fort Collins, Colorado)[citation needed] 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.

Medical career[edit]

Stork graduated magna cum laude from Duke University with a degree in anthropology. He earned his M.D. from the University of Virginia.[1] He completed his emergency medicine residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.[2] Before returning to Vanderbilt as a faculty physician, he worked as an attending physician at a private hospital in Colorado. Stork currently splits his time between Nashville and Los Angeles, where he hosts the syndicated television show The Doctors.[3] On October 9, 2013 Dr. Stork joined tele health company MDLIVE as Chairman of its Medical Advisory Board.[4]

Stork has appeared as a guest on many shows, including The Talk, to discuss medical and health tips. He has also published a book, The Lean Belly Prescription.

The Bachelor[edit]

Stork appeared on Season 8 of The Bachelor. During the season finale of the show, Travis 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.[5]

Following The Bachelor, Stork appeared as a Crest toothpaste spokesperson[6] for pregnant women,[7] as well as an advertising campaign with Target Corporation, also marketed to pregnant women.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Stork married his girlfriend of three years, pediatrician Charlotte Brown, on June 30, 2012.[9]

In 2009, he appeared as himself in the medical drama Three Rivers.

The Doctors[edit]

In 2007, Stork was cast as the lead host on The Doctors, a Los Angeles-based daytime medical/talk show, produced by Jay McGraw, son of Dr. Phil McGraw, which debuted in September 2008.[10] Stork heads a panel of three other physicians from different fields (pediatrics, plastic surgery and obstetrics) as they discuss health issues and answer audience questions.[11] The idea came about from a series of segments that were featured on Dr. Phil, to which Stork is also a frequent contributor.[12]
