When things are going well, it's fun to do a bit of chest pounding. Xoova has seen our unique visitors and page views rise 70% month over month (that little downtick in the arrow to the left? Not us!) since our site launched in July. We've tripled the number of doctors and major medical practices with Xoova usernames and passwords in the last month alone. And doctors who offer appointments online are getting five times as many page views as doctors who don't.
When we started this site, we wanted to make booking a doctor's appointment easier than the traditional way of calling during limited office hours and waiting on hold. What we found was an opportunity to be the market leader helping people find local doctors and medical services. On the flipside, we made it easier for doctors to share their philosophy of care in an environment that doesn't commoditize them with one-to-five star ratings. Everyone wins.
On a personal note, my sister was diagnosed with cancer this week. Many thoughtful friends are sending me names of oncologists in the Bay Area. The first thing I do with that? I "Xoova" them to find out more. It's heartbreaking to have to access oncologist profiles with such a personal agenda, but it's also gratifying to use my own site as a resource. That's the vision. And that's the reality.
