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, and 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 in a private hospital system in Colorado. Dr. Stork currently splits his time between Nashville and Los Angeles, where he hosts the syndicated television show "The Doctors".[3]

The Bachelor[edit]

Stork was the bachelor during season 8 of The Bachelor. During the season finale of the show, Travis Stork chose school teacher, Sarah Stone, who coincidentally lived only a few blocks away from his residence. In the end the relationship dissolved, and both profess that there are no hard feelings about the breakup.

Personal life[edit]

Travis and Dr. Charlotte Brown wed on June 30, 2012.[4] In 2009, he appeared as himself in the medical drama Three Rivers. He is also an amateur hiker.

The Doctors[edit]

In 2007 Stork was selected to serve 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.[5] On the show, 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.[6] The idea came about from a series of segments that were featured on Dr. Phil, to which Stork has been a frequent contributor.[7] He appeared on The Talk as a guest on February 2, 2011, shares secrets to banishing belly fat forever and offers fast healthy fixes discussed in his book, The Lean Belly Prescription[dead link].
