Oliver Kharraz, MD
Oliver Kharraz is COO and founder of ZocDoc, a site that empowers patients by making it quick, convenient, and free to find a doctor and book an appointment instantly. ZocDoc is also one of the fastest-growing companies in the US, and was recently named ‘Best Place to Work in New York City’ by Crain’s Business.
It all started when Kharraz suffered a burst eardrum, and the doctor couldn’t see him for four painful days. So he thought: If we could buy everything from hand soap to airfare with a swipe of the phone, why was healthcare so different? And why had we come to accept our powerlessness as patients?
One of the most successful online startups in New York was born.
