New York, NY (PRWEB) October 28, 2008 -- The all-new find a doctor or other health professional based on geographic location, medical specialty and even health insurance affiliation. With a beta version of the site quietly launched in August, has already been attracting attention for its powerful tools, ease of use, and innovative social elements. In addition to doctor search, visitors use the site to research provider qualifications, share doctor reviews, and download office paperwork in advance of their appointment.'s proprietary database includes detailed profiles for more than a million physicians, dentists, nurses, chiropractors, therapists, alternative medicine practitioners and other health professionals. In addition to listing providers' contact information and health insurance affiliations, the site also gives consumers such valuable information as gender, spoken language(s), office hours, and credentials like medical education, board certifications, and professional training.

"No other consumer Web site offers our combination of powerful search features and detailed provider information," claims Andrei Zimiles, general manager of "We invested heavily to ensure that the site would truly make people's lives easier. For example, we show users which insurance plans doctors accept. Surprisingly, while the majority of users searching online are insured, most of today's largest medical sites don't include this information in their doctor listings."

The "hard" data on is augmented by unique social media features that enable consumers to review and rate healthcare providers they know. "Nearly every medical professional licensed to practice in the United States has a profile - that means our visitors have a lot of options," added Zimiles. "By empowering users to share their experiences and recommend exceptional doctors to the rest of the community, we help people narrow their search to the providers best aligned with their needs. This is the critical human element that is missing from typical doctor directories."

Marketing Resources for Medical Professionals:
In addition to its consumer-facing features, also offers health professionals attractive marketing opportunities that generate targeted local Web traffic and can help to grow a medical practice.

"Professionals can claim their free profile to add or edit basic information and keep it up to date," added Zimiles. "We also offer powerful marketing options to increase the provider's prominence in search results and their overall exposure across the Web, particularly in major search engines like Google and Yahoo!. With an upgraded profile, professional users can also add supplemental content such as photos and videos that showcase their practice and forms for patients to download."

Feedback from early adopters who have upgraded their professional profiles has been unanimously positive. Dr. Fara Nosratian, a California-based general and cosmetic dentist, was one of the first doctors to upgrade her profile. "I'm very pleased with my upgraded profile," says Dr. Nosratian. "I really like the idea of being able to give patients a sense of what to expect during their first visit. The feature that lets me upload my standard new patient forms to the site is also excellent. When I get patients to arrive with all their paperwork already filled out, it really cuts down waiting room time."
