ZocDoc is available in many major cities and metropolitan areas (including New York, Atlanta, Phoenix and Los Angeles), and is currently working on a roll-out of nationwide coverage.

There is also a free ZocDoc App for iPhone and Android making it possible to find doctors and book appointments on-the-go.

All ZocDoc features are offered free to the user.
