There are lots of dumb things men do that result in them saying "I need a doctor", though hopefully none include repeating that song's chorus after waiting, like, eight years for some new Dre. Helping you find faster/better medical assistance the Internets way, ZocDoc, just launched in ATL.
Essentially an OpenTable for MDs, ZocDoc makes it insanely quick and easy for you to nail down appointments with local physicians and specialists, and was started by a guy who couldn't get a doc to see him for four days after his eardrum burst during a flight, which apparently proved way too much for his Virgin ears. Give 'em your address and insurance provider to see a list of nearby whitecoats that make sense for you plus the times they're available (which can be within as few as 24hrs, trouncing the average 11-day ATL wait), along with their resumes, user reviews, and short bios, although how the life story of an Oakland pimp rapper affects your strep throat is anybody's guess. To get all well, pick a practitioner/ appointment time, then give the specific reason for your forthcoming visit by selecting options such as pain medicine consultation, prescription refills, or just getting a physical, so Dr. Olivia Newton John can hear your body talk.
ZD will soon add dentists and optometrists to already recruited primary care, dermatology, and pain management docs like Atlanta Spine & Alternative Pain's Terrance Hughes, who specializes in chronic back/neck conditions and herniated discs, which is what most smarter critics are calling their Detox CDs.
