"We are committed to providing first-rate customer service, and we're incredibly proud of our high service standards which include answering within eight seconds of a call," said ZocDoc founder & CEO Cyrus Massoumi. "In turn, patients reward us with their loyalty and by telling others about our service, making ZocDoc one of the most highly-recommended companies in healthcare. By building a team of excellent service and sales professionals in the Phoenix region, we will continue to improve upon the service we provide to patients and doctors every day."

"ZocDoc's decision to expand its business to Scottsdale is wonderful news – not only for our state economy, but for Arizona jobseekers and the citizens who will rely on its premier services," said Governor Jan Brewer. "This move provides further validation of the pro-business environment, low taxes, lean regulations and quality workforce that consistently attract out-of-state companies to Arizona. I will continue working with the Arizona Commerce Authority to secure first-rate companies, like ZocDoc, in our state."

"ZocDoc will be a wonderful addition to downtown Scottsdale. They are a growing company that is pulling two of our most promising business sectors – medicine and technology – together in an innovative way. They have earned recognition as a great place to work, and I know that will be enhanced as their employees enjoy the quality of living in Scottsdale,"said Scottsdale Mayor W.J. "Jim" Lane.

"We want to thank ZocDoc for choosing Arizona as the site of its second U.S. location. ZocDoc's expansion into Arizona speaks volumes about our state's dynamic and talented workforce and ability to attract innovative, forward-thinking companies," said Sandra Watson, President and CEO, Arizona Commerce Authority.

"The Greater Phoenix region has a dynamic healthcare IT cluster that is growing exponentially, just like ZocDoc, whose innovative service is a welcome addition to our community," GPEC President and CEO Barry Broome said. " Scottsdale's young, university-educated workforce is a perfect fit for ZocDoc's needs and has the added bonus of an urban culture, with walkable restaurants, shops and entertainment venues."

ZocDoc plans to employ more than 650 area residents in the next three years, and to hire 66 people in the Phoenix region by the end of 2013. The company currently employs more than 400 people worldwide in its New York City headquarters and Pune, India office.
