Cyrus Massoumi is a businessman and entrepreneur who is most well-known for founding ZocDoc, an online service designed to make scheduling a healthcare appointment easier. After experiencing the frustration of being unable to see a doctor when he needed one, Massoumi got to work with his team with the intention of finding a solution to this problem that surely thousands others also experienced. A strong believer in the need for healthcare to be more accessible to the masses, Massoumi launched ZocDoc in 2007. With the help of his service, users can narrow down their doctor and dentist search using a range of criteria as well as book appointments on the spot, read patient reviews, and even fill out paperwork before the appointment. Perhaps the best feature of ZocDoc is that the majority of users receive medical care in under 72 hours.

Since ZocDoc wa established, the company has grown to more than 500 employees and is in 2,000 cities and towns across the United States. Over 5 million patients use the healthcare service a month, which is a huge accomplishment for Massoumi.
