Jeff co-founded Epocrates and helped run the company for 10 years, so he knows a thing or two about physician needs. Doximity is optimized for mobile platforms and also provides its users with the opportunity to earn extra income through partnerships with expert networks. About 8 percent of US physicians are currently signed up and using the service.
I have to admit I’m also fond of the company’s name. In an era where it’s hard to find an original name they were clever enough to combine “doctor” and “proximity” into a smooth sounding word that describes the service well, is easy to spell and is not too long. It also sounds like oximetry.
