ZocDoc Names Bezos, Benioff as Investors; Launches Facebook Application
NY-based appointment planning and physician review service ZocDoc has announced two new investors who were part of their $3 million Series A round of funding. Marc Benioff and Jeff Bezos participated in the funding round that closed in August.
ZocDoc is also announcing the launch of three new specialties today: ophthalmologists, orthopedists and ENT (ear, nose, and throat) doctors. The ZocDoc business model is based on charging specialist practitioners. Primary care physicians are not charged for appointment listings. ZocDoc noted that they had 20,000 available appointments listed this month. Appointments can also be made via their new Facebook application. ZocDoc is still only available in the NYC region so move here if you want to use it or wait until they roll it out in your city.
