Online doctor search and appointment site ZocDoc has raised $15 million in its second round of funding. On ZocDoc, users designate their city, insurance plan, and the type of specialist they are looking for and then see a list of corresponding doctors. Patients can book appointments directly from the site with doctors who pay to be included. For now, ZocDoc only lists doctors in New York City, Washington DC, San Francisco and Chicago, but the startup says it will use the new cash to “accelerate its nationwide growth.”
ZocDoc had previously raised $3 million in a round led by Khosla Ventures in August 2008. A few months later, it added Jeff Bezos’ Bezos Expeditions and Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff to its list of backers.
When we profiled the startup back then, it had 30,000 users; it now claims more than 200,000 per rmonth.
The new round was led by Founders Fund; Khosla Ventures also participated.
