What's Up, Doc?

Does your little one need medical attention in a flash? Finding a physician that can see him ASAP and accepts your insurance plan can be as daunting as that gourmet soufflé you’ve been attempting in the kitchen. It was this very problem that prompted Cyrus Massoumi, co-founder of ZocDoc, to create the medical multitasking website. Quick, easy and free of charge, scheduling a doctor’s appointment couldn’t be simpler. With its recent expansion to include the Dallas area, the site now lets you choose from local family care physicians, pediatricians, internists, dermatologists and more by compiling a list of medical providers in your area that accept your insurance and offer same-day-or next-day-appointments. ZocDoc also sends a text with the location and time of your appointment. Who needs a personal assistant? For more information, visit zocdoc.com.
