More than 2.5 million people book doctor appointments online each month with ZocDoc. But with many folks sick or following through on New York’s resolutions, yesterday was the busiest day ever in the hot startup’s five-year history, the company said today.
ZocDoc said that it saw a 130 percent increase in appointments booked yesterday versus the average number of appointments booked during the first Wednesday of every month in 2012. The number one procedure booked yesterday was an annual physical exam. Other appointments yesterday that were popular among patients were for “skin, teeth, and eyes.”
New York City-based ZocDoc’s service is available in 32 U.S. metropolitan areas, with St. Louis as its most recent addition. It charges doctors $250 a month to list their practice and let patients set up appointments and rate their bedside manner and professionalism. The company has raised $95 million in funding to date, with investments from players like DST Global, Goldman Sachs, Founders Fund, SV Angel, and Khosla Ventures.
