ZocDoc is expanding its presence in Scottsdale, Arizona, having signed a 30,000-square-foot office lease in the city, just down the street from its current offices at the Scottsdale Waterfront. The New York-based company, which helps patients find local doctors and instantly book appointments online, opened its first Phoenix-area office in March of 2013 and today, it has a local staff of more than employs 90 employees.
“When we realized we wanted to expand our operations outside of New York City, we did a comprehensive assessment of a wide variety of markets across Mountain and Pacific time zones,” said ZocDoc founder and CEO Cyrus Massoumi. “Given its strong universities, direct flights to New York, great weather, incredible talent base, and more, the Phoenix-Scottsdale area came out head-and-shoulders above everything else we considered.”
ZocDoc now has more than 600 employees in New York, the Phoenix area and Pune, as well as employees throughout the United States.The original three-person operation, ZocDoc now has more than 600 employees in New York, the Phoenix area and Pune, as well as employees throughout the United States. More than five million patients use ZocDoc’s free service every month and patients have booked more than 1,000 different types of procedures on ZocDoc to date. While the average national wait time to see a doctor is 18.5 days, the typical ZocDoc appointment takes place in less than 24 hours.
Looking ahead, company will build upon the success of products like ZocDoc Check-In, which allows patients to fill out paperwork online prior to appointments and then saves the information for future visits with other ZocDoc physicians.
Earlier this year, ZocDoc announced plans to be live in all 48 contiguous U.S. states by the end of 2014.
