Cut the wait time out of the waiting room. ZocDoc is a free online tool that allows patients to find nearby doctors and book appointments online. Cyrus Massoumi, who grew up in West Palm Beach, founded the website in 2007 with Dr. Oliver Kharraz and Nick Ganju. Today, more than 1.9 million patients nationwide use ZocDoc each month to connect with a pool of physicians in more than 40 specialties. The latest addition to the website is a check-in feature that lets patients fill out medical forms online before their visits. If memory problems are the reason for the visit, don’t fret. ZocDoc also sends emails and text messages alerting patients to upcoming appointments.
