Famous Television Doctors

These doctors might not be real, but they sure feel real when you are watching them on TV! In honor of Doctor’s Appreciation Day, we thought we would pay tribute to some of television’s best doctors. Without these men and woman, our favorite TV characters would always be sick! Here are our top 5! 

1. Meredith Grey - Grey's Anatomy

This list wouldn’t be complete without including a character from the show Grey’s Anatomy. Meredith Grey is the show’s protagonist. She builds relationships with patients and other doctors which sometimes escalate into friendships or more. She has no problem telling people the truth but sometimes prefers to be quieter. 

2.  Hershel Greene – The Walking Dead

Hershel Greene has saved many lives on The Walking Dead. He is fierce and knowledgeable about the disease the zombies are carrying. He won’t let anyone get in his way and will stop at nothing to protect his family. 


3. Dr. Gregory House - House

Dr. Gregory House is seen on House (there is a shocker)! He leads a team of diagnosticians as the Head of Diagnostic Medicine at the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital in New Jersey based on Yale-New Haven Hospital. He’s sassy, not-so-classy, and he serves up diagnoses with a huge side of sarcasm. Simply put, he’s the best. 


4. John Carter - ER

Dr. John Truman Carter III, portrayed by Noah Wyle, is a fictional character from the American television series ER. John gets into drama, but also continues to become a better physician interested in surgery as the series unfolds. 

5. Dr. Chris Turk - Scrubs

Christopher Duncan "Chris" Turk, M.D. is a fictional character in the American comedy-drama Scrubs, played by Donald Faison. Dr. Turk seems to be an outgoing guy who loves to keep up with the other doctors. Patients love him!


Now although these doctors are fictional, they hold a special place in our hearts. In reality though, we would like to give a huge thank you to our real life doctors. They take the time to help patients and sometimes even save lives. Our radiologist here are top notch (even better than these TV doctors) so schedule your appointment to see us today!
