DoctorBase scoops up Josh Angeles from ZocDoc

Josh Angeles

DoctorBase has hired Josh Angeles, former Sales Manager of the online appointment company ZocDoc, to head their sales development efforts. This is the first time the company has created a sales management position.

“I’m passionate about healthcare technologies and being part of a startup like DoctorBase that already has so much traction and growth was exciting to me,” said Josh Angeles. “The San Francisco health-tech scene is exploding, and it’s an amazing time to be involved in it.”

DoctorBase has raised only $1 million in seed funding in 2013, but is fast approaching profitability with high annual double digit growth since its inception in 2010.

“Josh and I both shared the same philosophy about the need for health-tech startups to focus more on real customer success than clich├ęs of ‘hockey stick growth,’ so the idea of working together just felt natural,” said DoctorBase founder John Sung.

Offering a suite of cloud-based, mobile-friendly marketing and communications SaaS to healthcare organizations, DoctorBase is becoming a leader in the emerging field of Patient Engagement Software, a growing new vertical within the B2B digital health startup ecosystem.
