They are hiring IC's for VR editing and also for transcription.  I am thinking of giving my hands a rest and doing editing.

Info is appreciated!

Cobb or *CMT* company info, anyone?
Any info on these companies? Fenton, TRX, Metro (in Georgia), Cobb, etc

Comprehensive Healthcare Service, Keystrokes, MDI-MD, and TSSC.  Would appreciate the following info.

Good dictation quality?

Steady work?

What are the work types?

Good platform?

Pay rate?

Paid for 65 cpl with spaces?

Do you have a flexible schedule?

Weekend work mandatory?

Employee or IC?


Low or high volume ESLs?

Dedicated accounts with the same doctors?

Dialup accepted?


I took the test too and thought it was ridiculous. They told me to come back in 6 months, which I never did.
thanks.  I very much appreciate it.   for now I'm looking for parttime to supplement my full time.  Maybe I should look into it and see if anything has changed!
Cobb experience
I concur - very good (non-national) company to work for as an IC.  Pay was decent, always on time, and owner friendly and professional to work with.  The only reason I left was for a career change; otherwise, I would have stayed there as long as possible. 
Anyone with information on Cobb? Thank you. NM
Trying to get info on Transcription-Express(not X-press Transcription)....

Got a call and am scheduled to be hooked on later this week.  Does someone need to stop me?  TIA 

I sympathize with you, but did you bother to contact Cobb and talk to them about it?
I work for MDI-MD and have worked part-time for Cobb in the past. sm

It has been about 3 years or so since I worked for Cobb Transcription in Georgia (very nice woman, by the way), so my info may be old, but I'll try to help.

Good dictation quality?

Yes for both MDI-MD and Cobb


Steady work?

MDI:  For the most part, yes.  There have been a few times, but you usually have enough secondary and tertiary accounts to make it through the dry times.

Cobb:  I was doing clinic work -- do not recall any times without work.


What are the work types?

MDI-MD has a few radiology and clinic accounts (I think), but probably the majority of the accounts are acute care.

Cobb may have hospital accounts, but all I did with them was clinic work.

Good platform?

MDI uses Bayscribe -- very easy to use.

Cobb used Word.

Pay rate?

MDI pays better than any other company I have encountered.

Cobb's pay rate is kinda low, as I recall, and it was based on being paid by the character.

Paid for 65 cpl with spaces?

Yes for MDI ... as I mentioned above, Cobb paid by the character.

Do you have a flexible schedule?

Yes to both.  MDI gives you a 24-hour turnaround time to do your work, and I think the same was true with Cobb.

Weekend work mandatory?

MDI:  You are asked to work 2 weekends a month, I think.  I pretty much work every weekend, so not sure about the official rules.

Cobb:  No.

Employee or IC?

MDI:  Statutory employee (they take out FICA, nothing else, so you do not have to pay self-employment tax)

Cobb:  Was IC only


No for both

Low or high volume ESLs?

Probably vaies with the account -- probably average with MDI.

I don't recall any ESLs at Cobb.

Dedicated accounts with the same doctors?

MDI:  You have a primary account and usually a secondary account -- pretty much the same docs.

Cobb:  Yes.

Dialup accepted?

Yes to both, as far as I know.  I have had cable so long, I do not recall.



Good luck with your job search.  Hope this helps.   If you have an offer from MDI, I'd take it -- it is a great place to work!

Company info on OSI Transcription

Has anyone ever worked for OSI Transcription?  If so, are they decent?  I just did the online transcription test and am awaiting their answer. I would hate to give up my local jobs for this one and find out they are not a decent company.



Company info on OSI Transcription
I've only been with them a few weeks, but so far, its been okay. Have had some minor issues regarding equipment and work, but these were resolved to my satisfaction by my manager. First pay was on time without any problems. If things continue as they are, I will probably be with them for a long while.
