About this project
In some of the busiest cities in America, professionals have nearly every moment of Monday-to-Friday booked solid by their obligations at work and family life at home. When they need to take care of important appointments like visiting their doctor or dentist, it almost always has to happen at the expense of other critical tasks, or squeezed in during the few spare moments they may have. Their choices for a doctor are greatly limited, and they can never devote the time and attention they need to their health because of it.
We were tired of seeing so many talented medical professionals go unnoticed by all the busy people who only have the weekends available to take care of their health. There was an enormous opportunity here for patients to get the help they need, and doctors to get more business by filling an enormous gap in the medical market. The solution was staring us right in the face. We created WeekendDocs as a new medical directory for doctors who are available on Saturdays and Sundays, and would be happy to help parents, professionals, and anyone else who has important obligations during the regular week hours.
How it Works
Doctors in New York City can create profiles listing their ability and expertise for all to see. When a busy person is looking for an expert in optometry, dentistry, pediatrics, or whatever the case may be, they will be presented with a long list of available professionals who fit their limited schedule. No longer will they have to settle for the relatively few options they thought they had, and everyone will be freer to find the exact right specialist to suit their needs. Anyone can run an advanced search and find the doctor tailored to exactly what they need most.
In Full Detail:
The bustling city of New York epitomizes what it means to be busy professional, constantly on the go. As hard-working NYC professionals who often don't have time to schedule a week-day visit to the doctor, our health should not subsequently suffer as a result!
Professional medical services shouldn't only be available to those who have some spare time during the week. With WeekendDocs, quality professional medical services required over the weekend are just one simple click away!
WeekendDocs bridges the gap between busy NYC professionals and medical practitioners who seek to offer their services during weekend hours...
With WeekendDocs, medical offices and professionals that are open for business over weekends can: - List their medical services with a view to receive patients over weekends - Enjoy more business with a targeted market of professionals who only have time over the weekend - Administer a proper, unrushed medical service to clients who'd otherwise have limited time during the working week - Instantly boost their exposure among a very specific target market
Listing is simple and easy, after a straight-forward registration process and medical professionals can get listed by service-category, location or medical field specialty.
For the busy professional who only has weekends open for a doctor's visit, WeekendDocs helps you to: - Maintain optimal levels of health by finding time to get the best medical care over the weekend - Run a quick and easy search for dedicated and qualified medical professionals that offer their services during hours that complement your busy schedule - Hedge against having to settle for an inferior medical service dictated to by the limited time you'd otherwise have during the week - Quickly locate and contact your nearest NYC emergency medical care center in case of emergency

Risks and challenges
Why We Need Your Help
Although WeekendDocs is designed and ready for distribution, we still need funds to put into promotion, marketing, creation of mobile app, and the actual platform. Right now, we only have a demo version up. We’d like to offer as many incentives as possible for those who are able to donate the money we will need to make this happen.
The funds gathered from this campaign will go towards letting the world know that this solution exists.
The more funding we acquire, the fast we will be able to spread out and start to cover other major cities where this is needed most. We believe that WeekendDocs could one day cover the whole country.
Tell Your Friends
If you’ve ever wished it was easier to find a good doctor who works weekend hours, then you should already see the enormous value of WeekendDocs. We’d like to serve as an inspiration for other entrepreneurs and startup enterprises to get out there and release their innovations to the world through the crowdfunding model. We know a lot of people who need a solution like this, so tell your friends to contribute so we can promote it to the world. Sharing this campaign on your social media profile is just as valuable to us as an actual financial pledge.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
