When building Medcorder, we needed an easy way for patients and their families to say who they were meeting with; based on their device's location and a few characters of autocomplete, we should return nearby matching doctors.
Medcorder has amassed information on over six million licensed medical professionals from across the country based on a variety of state and federal resources.

Starting in September 2020, we are opening up our "doctor near me" API to third parties on a commercial basis. Our geo-location API is fully scalable to hundreds of thousands of queries per second while maintaining ~150ms response times; we use a global network for localized TCP & SSL network ingress to ensure fast responses anywhere.

All API calls are served over TLS 1.2 at

If needed, we can deploy an on-network solution for you, or add additional close-peered access by your backend or users to ensure minimal latency. We'd be happy to discuss your needs and work with you on a solution.
