New York, NY (PRWEB) October 20, 2010
ZocDoc (http://www.zocdoc.com), the website to find physicians and book appointments online instantly, now makes finding a doctor even easier with the launch of the new ZocDoc iPhone app. Launching earlier this month, the iPhone app quickly skyrocketed to become one of the top 15 most downloaded apps for Healthcare and Fitness. This marks the company’s expansion to the mobile market in an aggressive national launch that has already been a huge success in Dallas, Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
The free ZocDoc iPhone App gives users access to over 1.5 million doctor appointments instantly from their iPhone, iPad, and IPod Touch. Real-time appointments are available with primary care physicians and dentists as well as specialists such as dermatologists, orthopedic surgeons, allergists and psychologists.
Users can not only find doctors who accept their insurance, but can also book appointments and read reviews from other ZocDoc users. In addition, the iPhone App enables users to identify the doctors with availability who are geographically closest to them.
Currently, the ZocDoc App is available only for the iPhone; however, ZocDoc has plans of branching out to additional mobile platforms.
ZocDoc was founded in 2007 by Cyrus Massoumi, Dr. Oliver Kharraz and Nick Ganju.
The company is funded by Khosla Ventures, Founders Fund, Bezos Expeditions, the investment vehicle of Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos, and Salesforce.com founder Marc Benioff.

"ZocDoc is health reform everyone can agree on," said ZocDoc CEO and co-founder Cyrus Massoumi. "We're simplifying a process that has been too difficult for too long. Patients, doctors and hospitals are all finding ZocDoc to be an incredibly valuable tool to improve the way people book doctor appointments."
"The average wait time to see a primary care doctor can be up to 50 days in some cities," said ZocDoc Chief Medical Officer and co-founder Oliver Kharraz, M.D. "At ZocDoc, we are proud to help patients find and see doctors within a matter of hours.
“The ZocDoc iPhone app is at the forefront of quickly connecting patients and doctors,” said ZocDoc CEO and co-founder Cyrus Massoumi. "We’ve brought healthcare to your mobile device in a way that’s never been done before.”
