Chicago residents now able to make same-day healthcare appointments online.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 15, 2010 -- ZocDoc, the website to find doctors and book appointments online instantly, launched today in the greater Chicago metropolitan area. The company’s move was chosen by thousands of users, who were asked which American city needed healthcare reform the most. ZocDoc will initially offer available appointments with primary care physicians, OB/GYNs, and dermatologists. More specialties will be added in the coming weeks.

ZocDoc gives patients access to doctors’ schedules in real-time, 24/7. The service also gives users the ability to search by their insurance and location, and make decisions based on doctor reviews provided by other ZocDoc users.

ZocDoc addresses the common problems of waiting to see a doctor by specializing in same-day appointments. ZocDoc is completely free to use.

Highlights / Key Facts:

The average wait to see a Chicago primary care doctor is currently over two weeks. The average wait to see a ZocDoc doctor is 24 hours.

With over 600,000 Chicagoans about to get insurance, ZocDoc is positioned to help the newly insured find doctors and make appointments instantly.

This is ZocDoc’s largest launch ever, offering over 150,000 available appointments in Chicago starting today. Over 200,000 people use ZocDoc every month to find doctors in New York, San Francisco, and Washington, DC.

Doctors pay a monthly subscription fee to show their available times on ZocDoc.

The company was founded in 2007 by Cyrus Massoumi, Oliver Kharraz M.D., and Chicago native Nick Ganju.

ZocDoc is funded by Khosla Ventures, Bezos Expeditions, the personal investment company of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and Marc Benioff, the founder of Salesforce.com.
