Who Is The Best Doctor In Daytime?


Entertainment Weekly Online has posted a list of their picks for Top 25 TV doctors of all time and suprisingly no daytime soap doctors made the cut. This is unsual for EW’s Top 25 List, which usually throws the daytime soaps at least a bone or two. 

The closest daytime came to making the list was Dr. Drake Ramoray, the hilariously dense doctor Friends Joey Tribbiani played on the sitcom’s fictional version of Days of Our Lives. Matt LeBlanc made it glaringly apparent that he was mimicking Days front man’s Drake Hogestyn in his performances as Dr. Drake, right down to the dramatic eyebrow cocking and several Salemites popped up on the show over the years, including Alison Sweeney (Sami) and Jason Brooks (ex-Peter). So since daytime didn’t get much love this time, who are some of your favorite daytime soap doctors?

    I voted for Joe. Tom Horton comes in at a close second. Eve is a horrible doctor! Jay-pooh, why are Ed & Rick Bauer not on this list?

    Even though he’s not on here, my vote goes for Ed Bauer. Rick comes in second.

    I would’ve voted for Steve Hardy but I only remember him from the black and white days. I don’t think my 5 year old mind could make a decision for good doctors back then. LOL

    No, Michael McBain from OLTL?? He’s got to have the worse medical lines…”I can’t think about her eyes!!!I’m worried about her spine!!!!!” This guy makes me laugh every time there’s a medical emergency.

    I was doing the poll at my work pc and that web browser isn’t conducive to blogging, so the list kept getting zapped. Ed and Rick were on it the first time I wrote it, but I forgot to put them when I tried to re-write it from memory. Rick has to be on the list, anyone who finished med school in two weeks!
