Virginia Professional Transcription Services

Has anyone hear of this company?  If so, could you please share info on them?  TIA.

Can't seem to find any information on MD-IT. Does anyone have any experience with this company?
are you serious? This board is for MTs to get information about companies from personal experience.
If you live in Virginia, then take the job because then you
could go directly to his office and DEMAND your paycheck (I am being sarcastic). This man is notorious for not paying his employees.
MedScribe LLC in Virginia
Thinking about applying with them.  Does anyone know anything about them?  Platform, reliability of pay and how often paid, IC or employee?
Anyone have info on LTS, Inc. out of Virginia
Looking for anyone who has had experience with this company to provide information. Thinking about applying, but would like to hear opinions first. Thanks!
Please, I need info on MTA in Virginia
MTA = Medical Transcription Associates in Virginia. Does anybody have experience dealing with this company? Good or bad ? Which platform do they use? How much do they pay? Any other info? I sure hope someone out there knows something. You can also send me an email. Thank you!!
I live in Virginia and have never heard of them ..
What city are they in?
Medical Transcription Associates of Virginia anyone?
I have not been successful in finding out any info on this company.  Can anyone help?  TIA!!!
Anyone ever heard of Smith Venture and Co out of Virginia?? (sm)
would appreciate any info on here or you can e-mail me.  Thanks.
The job is on a different job site. Google the company name + Virginia, and hopefully
escribe solutions virginia beach - NOT THE INDIA ONE

I have an in-house interview tomorrow - anyone heard of or worked for this company?  I have been an in-house Transcriptionist making an hourly wage - so this work at home thing is new to me - I don't know anything about what I should accept if I get offered the job - can anyone school me?  ha ha  I don't want to get screwed, but I don't know what the average is for pay, lines per day/week, etc.  It's like a foreign language.  Also I don't want to take the job to work at home and spend a lot of time doing it and make no money.

Any with MDI that work on the Northern Virginia hospital accounts?
I work for one of the other services and received some disturbing news this week.  Just want to verify what I was told is true.  Please email. 
Anyone have recent info on Cymed in Virginia? Oldest posts are from 09/2005- TIA

I am apparently being stiffed by a woman in Virginia for vacation coverage work I did. sm

I am not sure where I go from from here.  She told me that she would pay me for invoices from 06/26 and 07/11 on 07/22 (yesterday).  When I emailed her and asked her to verify that she had indeed paid me, she read the email (you can check on AOL) and did not respond.  It is only $338, but in my world right now, that is a lot of money to lose.  I blame myself because I broke one of my rules by working for someone who did not have direct deposit, and also by waiting for over a month to get my first check.  She did pay that one, but I am thinking now it was only because she still needed me to continue working to finish out her vacation coverage. 

I suppose I can file a small claims suit, although I thought someone told me that you have to go to that state to file.  She's in Virginia and I am in Colorado.  I have a friend in that area, so perhaps he could do the preliminary leg work for me for that.  I was also going to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.  I thought of contacting her clients to let them know that although she is paid for her services, she does not pay others, but I am not sure if that is legal or not. 

I am a bit frustrated -- mad at myself for trusting her -- and scared too because I was counting on the money.  Any ideas? 


Anyone know anything about Global Information Systems? Any information would be appreciated. nm

Well you are less than professional. Act like
one if you want a professional response. I am not who responded in the post you just responded to but you certainly are not acting like a professional.
That was a very professional
It is professional to do this
I believe you always should leave a company on good terms. Of course, on the other hand, if work is super low and they wouldn't feel the pinch if you left, I think less than 2 weeks would work. I had to do this at my last job. I gave them a week's notice because I just could not afford to work part time at a company where I was promised full time.
Professional Transcriptions
From Florida, any info from anyone on this company?
focus is not professional

I  also work for Focus Infomatics,  I mean worked.  I have been working for months.  They payvery poorly 6.5 cents per line.  as compared to other companies, that is very low.  Also they trick you into thinking it is a transcription job, then they tell you when you are trained, that you are going to be doing editing, without giving you a choice.  I am very disappointed with them.  I also thought they were good in the beginning.  They are not very professional.  I would not recommend this company to anyone who is looking for transcription work.



I would think you would know, pay should never be discussed with anyone - not very professional.
I am not your honey...please be more professional (nm)
Professional tester SM

I feel like a professional tester.  Tested for so many companies in the last six months I can't remember all of them - not one answer from any of them. 

Just tested for Transcription1 and still have not heard from them either.  Anybody have any info on this company?

Just my own professional belief sm
I personally do not think that anyone who is taught English as a second language could ever type or edit American English as well as American English-speaking people that are trained to do so unless he/she has solely devoted his/her life to mastering the craft.  Granted, there are many, many Americans who do not use the language properly even a little bit, but these people typically do not become MTs either!  I cannot imagine learning Russia as a second language, barely being able to articulate it, and then overseeing a born-and-raised Russian's grammar and punctuation skills.  Just my personal opinion, of course. I'm sure there are exceptions...somewhere.
I thought she was professional.
I talked with a recruiter once who talked to me like I was her long lost friend... it was kind of distracting.

I like the way the DR recruiter conducted everything. She was professional and pleasant, but not overly friendly.
lol You just did yourself in, professional recruiter!
How wonderfully professional you are!
Is this from the same mouth that threaten LEGAL action for imagining having been called a liar? Calling someone a psycho and ignorant? You neglected to mention the NUMEROUS emails you write to me, not just one! Yes, I'm sure anyone checking this site for suggestions or recommendations as to where to work will find this post helpful. they will realize that we have and maintain such a high standard that loons like yourself cannot possibly ever get hired on. For that, we are blessed and quite happy, and successful I might add. You have doctor friends- seek one out and get help. I pray for you...
to the point and v. professional and well-said.
You would think a professional would use the name of her company sm
and not a moniker to post with, plus like the other poster, I am not sure as a potential employee I would need to know about her 26 surgeries (26?!!!).   I think I'll pass.
Sorry, I meant Professional. Thanks

Was in a hurry

Actually, this is a professional website and

that is probably why they told you not to mock their advertisers.   Put youself in their place.  If this was your website, would you want MTs to mock your advertisers?

You are not a professional and by far, your post was not an opinion
It is apparent that you possibly are one of those MTs that has to jump around from company to company.
that's professional of her. Isn't one of them taking today off...sm
Was it Kathy or Colleen? Perfect timing, dontcha think?
Professional Dication Associates
Am looking for more info, I know they use Emdat.  Has anyone worked for them who can tell me about part time line requirements, hours and in general how they are to work for?  Thank you. 
Anyone heard of Professional Transcriptions of NW FL
Any info, good or bad?
Thank you also. Very nicely and professional stated...nm
WHAT? No one holds you back from being professional! OMG!
Talk about utter lack of accountability and responsibility!

You don't have a clue about running a business, the cost of capital, etc.!

You are an angry little person, huh?!
experienced and professional MT poster

You are just wrong.  I started over 10 years ago when one could make good money working productivity with bonuses and benefits.  The behemoth -- the Walmart of transcription -  came in and bought most everyone out and reduced line rates and decimated benefits.  All others had to also to stay in business.  I have a devil of a time making the same wage I made 10 years ago.  I recently left a place because I was making $12 an hour - working as hard as I could (less than 1/2 what I usually make).  The HR person called and asked why I left.  When I explained, she said those days are over and better get used to it.  If a CEO increases productivity and profit -- they get millions.  MTs are expected to double their productivity while making about half what they used to with VR.  Sorry poster, this is reality.  If you have prospered, be thankful, but don't put the blame of the dismal working conditions of transcription on disgruntled workers.


MDI-FL and Cornerstone Professional Services

Could I please hear from anyone who is currently working for MDI-FL or Cornerstone Professional Services.  I have searched for both companies, but would like to hear  how the people who are still working for these companies like/dislike working for them.  Any information would be appreciated...both pros and cons.

Thank you.

Professional Dictation Associates
I was just wondering if anyone has any input on the company good or bad TIA.
Cornerstone Professional Services
Cornerstone Professional Services is a very bad company to work for. They lie and they have trouble keeping people.  Find another company!!!!!
Cornerstone Professional Services

How is this company?  Do they pay on time? Is there is enough work? How is the QA staff? How is their platform?  How are the owners?  TIA

sorry for so many questions, but I like others am looking for a truthful company with stable work that does not, dog me out.

Be professional? lol You're joking, right?
Bottom line......The levels to which I have read of some MTs stooping to on this board does not belie a professional attitude. Personally, the whole thing makes me pretty nauseous.

Perhaps you should turn your nausea towards the declining wages being offered to seasoned MTs, then you might understand why MTs choose to sign on with multiple companies.

You expect MTs to be professional, but in this day and age there is very rarely a professional attitude returned to the worker bee MT.

The MTs are the ones who are trying to remain professional in this unprofessional rat race that transcribing has turned into. I say more power to any MT that has the guts to accept multiple offers and walk away from those that won't be beneficial to your pocketbook. I for one admire you, it's not something I know I could easily do.
This post by a supposed professional is
They were very nice and totally professional.
Then I got hired.  I was a very good employee and always exceeded my required line count.  They totally take advantage of that and you end up working weekends and on your days off.
