Doctors use Xoova for free to manage their presence on the Internet, to share their philosophy of care, and to offer patients the convenience of online scheduling. Xoova is headquartered in Santa Monica, California, with offices in New York and Philadelphia. Xoova completed financing with Spark Capital in September 2006.

Xoova is an affiliate of the Medical Group Management Association and is endorsed by a number of medical societies, including the New York County Medical Society, the New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians, and the Illinois Society of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
