ZocDoc is a New York-based service that allows users to make free appointments with dentists and doctors online. With a few clicks, users can find the doctors and dentists that accepts their insurance. Sometimes the appointments can be made on the same day.
ZocDoc can also find out the quality of doctors by patient reviews. ZocDoc started in September 2007. ZocDoc will be expanding beyond New York City soon. The founders of ZocDoc are Nick Ganju, Cyrus Massoumi, and Oliver Kharraz, M.D.
ZocDoc recently raised $3 million in a first round of funding, led by Khosla Ventures. ZocDoc currently has about 30,000 users and is growing 50% every month. The company also has a waiting list of doctors that want to participate in ZocDoc. ZocDoc currently has 10 employees and will be using the money to power their expansion.
ZocDoc plans on making money through two ways. The first way is advertising and the second way is to introduce a nominal fee for practitioners.
