The 16 Hottest Doctors On Television

It's crazy how many hotties we've watched on television over the years. Here's a look back at some of the physicians we wanted to "check for moles" the most, and check out The CW's new show, "Emily Owens, M.D.," when it premieres tonight at 9/8c., for even more medical marvels.

The best producers in the history of producing are the ones responsible for assigning Taye Diggs the nickname of "Doctor Feel Good."

3. Kate Walsh As Dr. Addison Shepherd On "Grey's Anatomy" And "Private Practice"

Let's put it this way: Dr. Shepherd was such a good OBGYN that husbands actually wanted to get their wives pregnant.

4. Gillian Anderson As Dr. Dana Scully On "The X Files"

Scully spent most of her time with dead bodies on "The X Files," which is actually, really, really sad because they definitely didn't appreciate any of it.

5. John Stamos As Dr. Tony Gates On "E.R."

Stamos played a "flirtatious" paramedic who became an intern at County General Hospital. His character also served in the Gulf War, which never generated as much conversation as...other things.

6. Katherine Heigl As Dr. Izzie Stevens On "Grey's Anatomy"

Dr. Stevens paid for medical school by being a lingerie model. Is that the face and pose of someone who didn't get to keep any of the "clothes?"

9. Patrick Dempsey As Dr. Derek Shepherd On "Grey's Anatomy"

Anyone who wouldn't make the trek up a mountain and onto the edge of a cliff to get into bed with this brain surgeon is in desperate need of a brain surgeon.

10. Rachel Bilson As Dr. Zoe Hart On "Hart Of Dixie"

She may have failed at becoming a cardio-thoracic surgeon in NYC, but something tells me Dr. Hart has a variety of other skills.

13. Omar Epps As Dr. Eric Foreman On "House M.D."

House claimed he hired Foreman because he was a talented ex-car thief, but everyone knows it was really because of how he left "E.R." and finally learned to fill out those satin vests of his.

14. Jane Seymour As Dr. Michaela Quinn On "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman"

Anyone who could save people from rattlesnakes and breach babies in the post-Civil War wild west isn't required to look this good in a dress, but Dr. Quinn always did play by her own rules.

16. But Keep Your Eyes Peeled For Mamie Gummer As Dr. Emily Owens On "Emily Owens, M.D."

She's definitely got a little somethin' somethin, if you know what I'm saying.
