It is a daunting job whenever I have to look for some service near me. Just another day I was looking for a dental clinic near me and I have to stumble upon a number of apps and websites. Finally, I found one app that has the best solution for me. The name of the app is Practo. Practo very conveniently showed all the dental clinics near me with complete information about the dentists and facilities available in the clinic.
Practo is an internet-based service to schedule appointment with the doctor. With the help of Practo you can search for doctors based on speciality, location, clinic name, or doctor name. Other ways you can search doctor for yourself is by specifying area inside the city, availability, timings and consultation fee. Once you find the perfect doctor for yourself you can directly schedule an appointment with the app.
When I read about the founder of the apps there came out on an interesting story about the inception of Practo.
The idea came across when Shashank’s(Co- founder of Practo) father is looking for surgery of his knee and they finalized a specialist doctor in the US. The Doctor in the US wanted to check all the medical records of the his father before giving any opinions of his. But there was no way to get all the reports and prescription across and then send to Doctor in the US.
This Incident triggered the idea of Practo. Shashank discussed it with Abhinav who is a expert in computer and both worked on the idea.
Shashank also believed that there should be a common platform where patients can write a review of the doctor which can be helpful for other patients. Practo made feedback system and attempts to collect the most helpful and reliable feedback from patients.

Practo is very convenient to use. You just have to download the app. It is available on both Android and iOS. Once you finish installing the app on your mobile phone you just have to create an account and start the search for the doctors you want.
