“With today’s launch of ZocDoc in Minnesota, getting in to see the doctor no longer has to be a daunting task. We’re looking forward to improving access to care in Minnesota, helping local residents relieve this pain point and take control of their health,” said ZocDoc founder and CEO Cyrus Massoumi.

ZocDoc will help Minnesota patients receive faster care by revealing hidden supply of doctor appointments and making them instantly available online.ZocDoc will help Minnesota patients receive faster care by revealing what the company calls “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.

At present, patients can use ZocDoc to book appointments with participating Minnesota primary care doctors; dentists; obstetrician-gynecologists; dermatologists; and ear, nose, and throat doctors. Additional physicians and specialties will be added over the coming months.

In addition to free online booking, patients can use ZocDoc Check-In to fill out medical paperwork online prior to their visit, and retain it for future appointments. The service also sends Appointment Reminders and tailored Wellness Reminders to help patients better manage their health.

ZocDoc is currently available in over 2,000 US cities, covering over 40% of the US population, and will be in every contiguous state in the US by the end of 2014.
