At Zocdoc, we use Elasticsearch to help patients find the right doctor. We do this by using autocomplete/semantic search to guide patients towards the right specialties/procedures & by displaying the most relevant doctors in the search results. Learn how Zocdoc leverages Elasticsearch & Machine Learning to continuously improve the quality & relevancy of Search at Zocdoc.
