Preventative health visits in danger of extinction

80% of Americans are delaying or forgoing preventative healthcare, according to a recent survey from medical scheduling company ZocDoc.

ZocDoc President and co-founder Oliver Kharraz was recently featured on CNBC's "Squwak Box," where he featured the main points of ZocDoc's recent study.

Here are a few interesting takeaways form the study:
- 93% of millennials are not scheduling preventative doctor's visits
- Almost 50% of respondents canceled an appointment because of work
- 43% said it is easier to diagnose their own condition, often with the help of the internet

Kharraz attributed these statistics to the inability of patient's to access doctor's.

"They get dial tones and hold music," said Kharraz.
