NEW YORK, Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Veterinarians.com, the leading website for connecting consumers with veterinary hospitals, today launched its innovative Instant Booking feature to allow consumers to directly schedule an appointment with a veterinarian of their choice. As the first nationwide directory to allow instant booking for veterinary hospitals, Veterinarians.com pioneers helping consumers choose a great hospital for their pet and instantly schedule their first appointment.
With Veterinarians.com, every veterinarian can make sure the most recent, relevant information about their practice is available online; bios, clinic specialties, directions and now a real-time view into the availability of Veterinarians at the practice. This innovative feature is also available for hospitals to place on their own hospital web site.
"Veterinarians.com (formerly LocalVets.com) has been helping hospitals fill their empty appointment slots for over six years, last year directing an estimated $1 Billion in new revenue to local veterinary clinics using state-of-the-art technology," said CEO Brent Metz, "and I'm proud to continue our technical leadership in the industry with Instant Booking."
Most veterinary practices have the ability to email the clinic for an appointment, but this requires a response from the front desk to call or email back, which can be cumbersome and result in lost patients. With Veterinarians.com Instant Booking, consumers can see day or night exactly which time slots are open with a real time view into the clinic's calendar and instantly schedule their appointment.
Veterinarians.com (formerly LocalVets.com) has been helping consumers connect with a local veterinary hospital for over six years. Using patented speech recognition technology that enables veterinarians to only pay for new patients, Veterinarians.com provides a unique and groundbreaking value to its nearly 5,000 participating hospitals. Veterinarians.com is headquartered in New York City.
