BetterDoctor - a platform to help you find doctors - just raised a $2.6 million seed round, led by SoftTechVC and Burrill & Co. 500 Startups also participated in the round. Jeff Clavier from SoftTechVC and Dirk Lammerts from Burrill & Co also joined the board.
BetterDoctor is a doctor-finding service that analyzes hundreds of data sources to rank about one million doctors across the United States. Founded and run by Ari Tulla, BetterDoctor was founded after Tulla's own experience that saw his family dealing with 15 doctors and specialists. Finding and researching everyone manually turned out to be a huge time sink for him. According to Tulla, with one million doctors in the database, BetterDoctor essentially covers 99% of all the doctors in the US.
Since debuting in 2012, more than four million people have used the doctor-finding service.
BetterDoctor not only provides user-generated ratings and reviews, it also aggregates public and private data to help rank every doctor in the US. BetterDoctor analyzes experience, education, medical licensing, board certification, judicial sanctions, professional and referral network.
