Dr Rachael Ross, MD, PhD. is a charismatic, gentle looking but feisty, frank, genuine, outspoken, practicing board-certified family medicine physician and sexologist brought into the spotlight when she started co-hosting the CBS, Emmy Award winning talk show, The Doctors in 2008. She leads discussions on relationships, sex, health, abstinence, HIV/AIDS prevention and discuss emphatically on sex education for teenagers. For three consecutive seasons she was the approachable Family Physician on the show that viewers everywhere could easily relate to as she often spoke their mind and seem to understand their plights, plus, she speaks frankly about issues people shy away from. It must be synonymous with being a family doctor.
She earned her M.D. from Meharry Medical College -her dad’s Alma matar, with her two sisters Ruth and Rebekkah - and her Ph.D. from the American Academy of Clinical Sexologists, and has a B.A. from Vanderbilt University, where she studied anthropology.
In 2004, she and her sister Dr. Rebekkah, who was also a physician, started mentoring girls in their hometown. And in 2012, Dr. Rachael received Northwest Indiana’s prestigious Athena International Service Award on behalf of the duo for their work. The duo’s philanthropy was also recognized by the National Council of Negro Women.
Dr. Rachael is from Gary, Indiana, and she still practices in a family-run clinic there after spending eight years in Nashville, TN. The clinic where her family practices community medicine is about two blocks away from the house she along with her eight brothers and sisters grew up in. Her dad bought the house in the 60s, after he met her mom. Her parents had both migrated to the Midwest to escape the blatant racial tension of the Deep South.
About Her Clinic
The clinic's emergency room is named after her dad, Dr. David Ross- who is in his late 80s but still sees patients - for his contribution towards the health of the people in the town over the years and according to his daughter, he even donated part of the money used to build it during the financial boom. Dr. Rachael is a daddy's girl and speaks fondly of him at every opportunity she gets. She loves the clinic so much she sometimes refer to it as the "bane of her existence' (which must have changed since she gave birth). Her brother Nathaniel Ross is the director, her mum is the manager, and they also have a doctor named Shelly Sandifer who came to work with them after the lost her (Dr. Rachael) sister, Rebekkah, while she was trying to have a baby of her own, to complications related to sickle cell anaemia in 2011.
She finds pleasure in doing little things that might seem crazy to a lot of people and enjoys treating families at the family clinic because she doesn't have to ask her patients much about their family history as she's treated their aunts, uncles, parents, and sometimes even their grandparents. It makes her feel elated. The patients trust them to take care of their health problems and according to Dr. Rachael, thanks is something they take personally because when they say,
“our family, treating your family…”
they completely mean it. While maintaining her medical practice in Gary, Indiana and going back and forth to Hollywood, CA to co-host on the Emmy Award-winning talk show, The Doctors, she also finds time to write. She is the author of "Down Right Feel Right – Outercourse For Her & For Him" designed to help couples develop greater intimacy and to provide singles with a basic conceptual structure for safer sex. She was and is still been a featured speaker at college campuses nationwide; has been quoted as an expert in Cosmopolitan and Self magazines among others, and has hosted her own nightly radio talk-show. She also speaks at high schools, and is a spokesperson for OraQuick, a self-administered rapid HIV test. She also owns a blog where she offers advice and continue to spread her message to audiences across the U.S. According to her site, she has been heralded as100% discreet and purely confidential. "As a sexologist, I know that for many, sex has become overrated, nonexistent, or maybe even bothersome. With over ten years of experience helping couples and individuals, I can help. For motivated people, most sex issues can be resolved within 3-4 1/2 hour visits. You are not alone. "She says. I mean, the way she lines words together and just seem to know what to say, how to say it, is a wonder on its own. You can't help but get comfortable with her. For some of you, she's your family physician, to others she's your trusted friend. Now all of you have Real-Time access through e-visits.
Benefit #1 - No time off work, no commute.

With over 10 years qualified experience as a family physician, Dr. Rachael's frank and practical approach when communicating with and caring for her patients is one of her defining features on the field. She believes that each patient is different and unique and their plan for wellness should be in line with their individual needs. What she means here is that everyone is special and should be treated as such. Rather than apply the same methods and techniques for everyone. This alone stands her out. As a clinical sexologist, her engaging and forthright manner has gained her talks of being “The next Dr. Ruth, the nationally renowned sexual therapist who pioneered frank sex talk.” Chicago Tribune.
In an interview with A&U Magazine, she explains that
HIV prevention has been the center of my existence before I was legal to drink......We just never talk about sex—and how you get it......Doesn’t seem like there is really anybody totally honest about it. We’ll say, ‘Use a condom,’ but what about the sex? We’re not addressing the fact that half way through intercourse the guy takes it off. We’re not talking about how it feels better without it. We’re not talking about ways to please your partner other than through penetration. Consequently, there’s a whole lot of education that’s lost.
According to her, news about HIV/AIDS is being relegated by the media and it's going to take a "celebrity living with the virus" to come out about it for it to be in the news again and create the needed awareness. “The face of HIV and AIDS is gonna have to be somebody who…has the virus.” She says.
Dr. Rachael Ross is a Mama Bear
On Monday, Nov. 9, 2015 Dr. Rachael Ross made a shocking announcement on The Doctors episode, “I’m pregnant!” She says. She assured the audience she was going to be ecstatic if it is a boy or a girl. The sex didn't matter as she went ahead and had a live ultrasound done in the presence of the studio audience. Ross’ OB/Gyn and college classmate Dr. Perpetual Goddall made an appearance on the talk show to perform the sonography to check on the baby’s progress and to determine the sex, and confirmed it is to be a little princess.
From the joy on her face and how protective she was of the baby (I mean, she didn't announce it till she was five months gone) you could tell she going to be a mother bear and then she making a shout out to mothers who have gone through pregnancy several times shows she just waded into new territory she wasn't familiar with. And in February, even though she was scared of natural birth since she lost her sister, Rebekkah, through pregnancy; after almost giving up twice, Dr. Goodall constant reminder that she can do it, her birthing companion's words "you're doing great", God's grace, and her love for the sweet girl she was carrying, she gave a last push -don't forget the nose bleed and pain she describes as "delirious - that brought out Rebekkah Story Ross. Yep, she got the family name. Dr. Rachael has been very secretive about who "boo" is. She gave birth naturally without pain medication, just meditative thoughts, remembering to breathe and staying focused. Earlier when she expressed her fear about natural birth, Dr Perpetual Goodall had introduced her to her Doula. She attended private hypnobirthing classes and got comfortable with the idea of a natural birth.
You may talk about sex, pregnancy and babies but if you haven't gone through it, you don't really know what it feels like. And with her having a niche for frankly discussing things most professionals shy away from or roughly discuss, it's not surprising when she wrote the apology letter -after she met a woman whose triplet were vaccinated and started acting up afterwards - that got published on Vaxxed. She apologized for her "ignorance" when it came to vaccines and made some succinct points which led to her conclusion that parents should be allowed to make the decisions to either get their children vaccinated at a more advanced age than prescribed or not.
She is a Black-American woman with an eclectic style and very proud of her heritage. She wanted a little bit of her style in her daughter, she also wanted her to have a sense of strength and pride, according to her interview with Women 's Day, she had designers create custom art round lyrics from the Black American National Anthem. "It's a song that keeps us in touch with our heritage; the lyrics are words that brought us through slavery and the Civil Rights era. I want her to know that, and to dream big," she said while also referring to the "Dream" banner over her princess's crib. She is no racist as she loves people from all race and condemns racism but she has a little habit of tagging attaching "white", "black", "latino", etc. when describing people she meets. Well, we all have our bad habits.
She lives in Chicago now but don't go stalking her or you are going to find yourself chased down the street - as a mother hen chases anyone who tries to harm her chicks- like she did to a burglar who tried to find his way into her house not knowing she was inside. According to her, if she had done nothing and simply called 911, the guy would have been back. Instead she called upstairs for someone to dial 911 and decided to go outside to check if all was clear. Instead she saw the guy some blocks away so she decided to use her voice like she tells girls she works. She practiced her screaming on him in her "I-ain’t-playing-with-you voice". And when he just stood there looking at her, she gave him a chase, throwing Eminem's lyrics she has been listening to on her runs with her trainer to get back in shape at him.
Nobody paid attention to her because she "looked and sounded crazy" but thankfully, a knight in shining armor came along with his girlfriend and gave the guy a chase. The knight didn't catch the guy but the police came, ignored and took the story from the white knight girlfriend after which they took off at a "slow-paced jog" to find the assailant. Dr. Rachael said she was 80% sure they wouldn't catch the guy but surprisingly they did. And now she can sleep happy with her baby and not worry about the guy coming back. Even though she received a well-deserved scolding from her family and friends so such a reckless action a mother's first instinct will always be to protect her kids. She just proved that she might be a career woman, but you do not mess with her kid. It is also important to note that there is no mention of her having a nanny even with her perceived crazy schedule.
