ZocDoc aims to make quick work of a universal, essential task that’s normally tedious at best: making appointments with doctors and dentists. Available in more than 30 U.S. metropolitan areas, it begins by helping you find a nearby specialist. You can read ratings and reviews by verified patients for bedside manner and wait time and winnow the list to doctors who accept your insurance. Then you can schedule an appointment at a convenient time with a few simple clicks. It’s just what the patient ordered.
