The massive earthquake in Haiti on January 12 — and the subsequent aftershocks — have left more than 100,000 people dead and millions in urgent need of medical care. Executive producer of The Doctors, Jay McGraw, his brother, Jordan, E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork, OB/GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson, plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Drew Ordon and pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears traveled to the country to offer medical care and deliver much-needed supplies. From operating on a young boy who suffered a head injury, to treating sick children at an orphanage to finding food for a starving girl, The Doctors do whatever they can to help those affected by the disaster.

"I tried to prepare myself to come down here, but I wasn't ready to see what I've seen," Dr. Jim says. "I find that when I'm working with these kids, I'm good; I'm working just one-on-one, taking care of kids. But [it's] not until I step back and I take a break, I break down."

"In a crisis like this, you can never have enough physicians," Dr. Travis says. "This is an emotional trip for all of us."
