About The Doctors

 

The Doctors premiered on September 8, 2008, introducing an entirely new concept to the 
TV landscape -- real doctors discussing topical health and wellness issues in an 
entertaining and engaging fashion, five days a week. 
 
The Emmy® Award-winning one-hour, daytime syndicated talk show returned for its sixth 
season on September 9, 2013 and continues to be hosted by physicians who are among 
the best in their respective field, including ER physician Dr. Travis Stork, plastic surgeon 
and reconstructive surgery expert Dr. Andrew Ordon and pediatrician Dr. James Sears; 
and recurring co-hosts, OB/GYN Dr. Jennifer Ashton, urologist Dr. Jennifer Berman, 
family doctor and sexologist Dr. Rachael Ross and physical medicine and rehabilitation 
specialist Dr. Ian Smith. 
 
The Doctors sets itself apart from the competition through its wealth of experts – each of 
the co-hosts brings a specialized and unique background to the show including decades of 
experience, in order to provide viewers with well-rounded and easily understood 
prescriptions for health and wellness. The show's group of physicians and experts delivers 
the very latest in health and wellness information, often interacting with audience members, 
celebrity guests and viewers who have contacted the show with their individual stories. 
 
The show continues to be recognized for its excellence by both the entertainment and 
medical communities. It received the Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show/Informative 
in 2010 and has been nominated in the category every year since the show's inception. 
The co-hosts were also recognized by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences 
with Emmy nominations for Outstanding Talk Show Host in 2011 and 2012. 
 
The Doctors has received numerous accolades from the medical community, including the 
2009 Crystal Cross Humanitarian Award from the American Red Cross, honoring 
outstanding television shows and the humanitarian spirit of extraordinary individuals who 
have shown courage, compassion and unselfish character. 
 
In addition to the important, up-to-the-minute medical information regularly dispensed on 
the program, The Doctors has succeeded in calling attention to numerous world health 
crises through the hosts' many volunteer efforts. In January 2010, The Doctors traveled to 
Haiti to aid in medical relief efforts and deliver over 7,000 pounds of donated medical 
supplies following the devastating earthquake. Recent humanitarian trips include Dr. Travis 
Stork's visit to Tanzania, Africa, with BikeTown Africa to help build bikes for HIV/AIDS 
health care workers so they can more effectively travel to remote villages, and Dr. Andrew 
Ordon's trips to the Middle East and India, to perform surgeries on war victims and 
underprivileged patients with severe deformities. 
 
Since the show's premiere, The Doctors has welcomed a wide variety of celebrities to 
discuss what matters most about their health. Notable guests include Harrison Ford, Sally 

 

 

The Doctors can be seen on WLBT weekdays at 3pm.
