Primary Care Hits a Sweet Spot with Patients and Physicians


When ZocDoc launched primary care on Valentine’s day last month, we were hopeful that patients would show our physicians some love. What happened surpassed even our most optimistic scenarios: within 15 minutes of making doctors available on ZocDoc, the first patient booked an appointment.

Thanks go to all of our users who have kept us (and the ZocDoc doctors) busy since then. With offices in the Upper West Side, Upper East Side, Gramercy, Tribeca, and SoHo, patients could find a doctor on ZocDoc in many neighborhoods from day one.

Doctors love the service as well – many were initially in disbelief that joining ZocDoc is free for them, and were pleasantly surprised how quickly ZocDoc connected them with their patients.

While we are growing our base of primary care doctors (if your doctor doesn’t participate yet, you can nominate here), we are already starting to plan our next specialty. What would you like to see next on ZocDoc? Let us know!
