ZocDoc is Helping Patients Find Doctors and Book Appointments Online

ZOCDOC LOGOZocDoc arrives in the Las Vegas area today, helping residents and visitors alike effortlessly secure faster access to local medical care. ZocDoc is a free service that allows patients to find a doctor nearby who accepts their insurance, view the doctor’s real-time availability, and instantly book an appointment online. The typical ZocDoc patient sees a doctor in 24 to 72 hours – a vast improvement from the weeks-long wait time average that Las Vegas patients currently experience.

At present, patients can use ZocDoc to book appointments with participating Las Vegas primary care doctors, obstetrician-gynecologists, and eye doctors. Other specialists, including dentists, dermatologists and many more will soon be added to the service.

To use this free tool, patients simply visit the ZocDoc website (www.zocdoc.com) or the free ZocDoc mobile app (iPhone, Android, and Blackberry) and enter their location, insurance, and the type of doctor they would like to see. ZocDoc then shows local doctors’ real-time availability, qualifications, and verified patient reviews to help patients choose the Las Vegas physician who best fits their needs. Patients then select an available appointment time and complete a brief confirmation process. With ZocDoc, patients can book anytime, anywhere – whether the doctor’s office is open or closed.

ZocDoc helps Las Vegas patients get faster care by revealing a hidden supply of doctor appointments (including many last-minute cancellations) and making them instantly available online. This transparency reduces patients’ long wait times and increases efficiency for local medical practices – a vital service given the country’s current doctor shortage, which only stands to become worse with 32 million new patients entering the system under the Affordable Care Act.

“Many patients and doctors in the Las Vegas area are reporting a six month wait to see primary care doctors for a routine check-up, and they’re reporting even longer wait times for more serious matters,” said ZocDoc founder and CEO Cyrus Massoumi. “We look forward to making that wait dramatically shorter and helping local residents secure fast access to the quality care they need and deserve.”

In the coming months, Las Vegas patients will also be able to use ZocDoc Check-In – the #1 most requested new feature to date by patients using ZocDoc. After booking an appointment, ZocDoc Check-In allows patients to fill out their medical forms online, at their convenience, prior to their visit. ZocDoc securely saves this information and will pre-fill forms when a patient books with a participating ZocDoc physician again in the future.

ZocDoc currently offers appointments with healthcare providers in 33 major metropolitan markets across the US, including Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Long Island, New York City, Northern New Jersey, Northern Virginia, Orange County, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, San Gabriel Valley, San Jose, San Fernando Valley, San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa Bay, Washington, DC, and West Palm Beach. ZocDoc is available in over 1,500 US cities, and covers over 40 percent of the US population.

ZocDoc also offers a Spanish-language version of its free service called ZocDoc en Espanol (espanol.zocdoc.com; iPhone and Android) that helps Hispanic patients effortlessly find Spanish-speaking doctors and book appointments with them.
