Patients can search and schedule doctor's appointments online through the website ZocDoc. If a patient is looking for a specific hospital, then he can check ZocDoc to see if the hospital is supported through the site.
On the ZocDoc website, a patient can find a doctor by adding some details in its "Find a Doctor" tool, such as the specialty, the zip code and the type of health insurance. Once a patient fills in those fields, the site will give a wide range of doctors to choose from. Also, each result includes a patient review and the amount of stars given to that doctor on a 5-star scale. In some cases, a patient can see the price of a consult without having insurance.
Once a patient selects a doctor, he can click on the box that says, “Book Online.” A pop-up window will appear to input the reason for the visit and to display a calendar with the available dates and time. After choosing from those two fields, the patient would then finish up booking the doctor appointment.
