DocPlannerWarsaw, Poland-based DocPlanner, which offers a service that helps consumers find and book appointments with providers, has raised $10 million in a round led by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and angel investor Lukasz Gadowski.

Other investors participating in the round include newcomer OLX Founder Fabrice Grinda as well as existing investors Point Nine Capital, Piton Capital, and RTAventures. This brings the company's total funding to $14 million.

DocPlanner is available in 25 countries, including markets in Europe, South America, and Asia. It is available in 16 different languages. The offering has more than 7 million monthly users and appointment booking available with more than 1.4 million doctors and dentists. Consumers can use this service to search for doctors, read ratings from other users, and book appointments with nearby medical professionals.

"Since launching in 2012, we have been committed to making DocPlanner a leading medical appointment booking platform, first in Europe, then globally," DocPlanner Founder Mariusz Gralewski said in a statement. "The Series B funding will help us achieve this goal by allowing us to scale our team and hire senior managers, further improve our product, and begin commercializing two new markets in 2015.”

According to the company, since 2012, 1.4 million appointments have been booked through the platform.

DocPlanner is one of a number of companies working to help consumers book doctors appointments online. ZocDoc is perhaps the best known and best funded. Aetna's popular iTriage app offers appointment booking for select providers. Lybrate is building a similar offering in India and Singapore's DocDoc just received $8.6 million.

Last month, another appointment booking service, called MyTime, raised $9 million. MyTime does not help patients book appointments with primary care physicians, but it helps users book appointments for a number of other health-related services. Users can book appointments for a dental exam and cleaning, teeth whitening, acupuncture, chiropractic treatment, eye exam, and physical therapy.
