Even though the idea seems so obvious, no one web service can lay claim to the title: "Yelp for doctors."

Hoping to change that, CareDash recently secured $1 million in venture debt and another $1 million line of credit from Link Ventures. The Cambridge-based company offers a service for finding, comparing, and reviewing doctors. You can search by address, zip code, doctor name, specialty, practice, or hospital.

In this interview, we hear from CareDash CEO Ted Chan about why he thinks now is the time a "Yelp for doctors" can thrive, and he shares what most excites him about the future of healthtech. Take a listen:
