SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Doximity announced today that it now has over one million medical professionals as members, achieving a major milestone in the company's history.

By accessing Doximity's unique HIPAA-secure workflow tools -- secure calling, on call scheduling, efax service, and medical newsfeed -- from their smartphones or PCs, clinicians can do their jobs more efficiently and provide better, more coordinated care for their patients.
"The growth of Doximity within the physician community is impressive. And they continue to add new tools like Doximity Dialer that save time and help us stay focused on patient care," said Marlene May Millen, MD, chief medical information officer, ambulatory care, at UC San Diego Health.
