Anybody here work for Prium (Duluth, GA)?
Anybody currently working for Mag Mutual out of Duluth, GA...
that can give me information as far as pay, platform, scheduling, flexibility?
There is no universal platform. sm
There is more than one platform as they work in the platform of the hospital or clinic. Call and ask for another account. I did and have been happy for 2 years.
Universal sick day
Been reading the posts about having an MT strike. I agree with the comments about companies getting worse instead of better as far as paying IC and other transcriptionists. We should just have a universal sick day (just one day) and see what chaos this causes. May be it does not even have to be the whole day, just a couple of hours.
Oh why can't we just have universal health care?!
These decisions royally stink, don't they?!. It would be so nice if we could take the whole health care scam out of the equation! Darned if you do, darned if you don't.
I'm not sure about anyone else, but I have noticed rather universal email problems lately. sm
I was told there has been a virus loose, and a lot of email, especially with attachments, was not getting through. I would probably give her a call, tell her I've had a problem with email (I have), and wanted to be sure I hadn't missed anything. Just a thought.
Intranet is only thing universal, otherwise ask your lead
We all have to enter our lines on the intranet each day (unless it's down!), but other than that it's account-specific. Better touch base with your lead.
Told ya.. the word NO is not a universal language. They do not hear what you say at all ..yet..
They are the ones QA-ing your work and docking your check accordingly. What a crock.. That and I would like 12 hours and be lucky to make $50. It's a ripoff. Their line count never adds up but you can bet they get paid a lot more than they give their MTs.

looking for ophthalmic transcription work
I am a soon to be graduate of Career Step and prior to this worked 11 years for an ophthalmologist. I am looking to do ophthalmic transcription. Is there a company that specializes in ophthalmic transcription?
I don't work in a transcription office but I
certainly don't work in my living room or bedroom. I have a dedictated office in my home. You insult all home workes with such broad statements.

Anyone work for Northeast Transcription?
Positives? Negatives? Flexible with schedules? Decent pay? Someone else posted asking similar question on 09/24/2007, but it doesn't look like anyone responded.
Transcription work is not a sure thing.
Physicians take vacations. Physicians leave the practice. Clients switch companies. You cannot expect an MTSO to always have work when this is not the sort of business that you can promise anything.
This profession is sort of like take it when you get it and not when it's convenient. Whether you have your own accounts or work for a company, this still holds true.
There are times when I see no end, and then there are times when I can take a deep breath and a break. It's just the nature of the business.

Freelance transcription work
Has anyone every used Contract Medical Transcriptionist and Freelance Transcriptionists Services website for IC work? I was wondering how legit they were. Tired of working for large compaines and thought about using this venue for employment.
Contract Transcriptionists & Freelance Transcription Services
Landmark Transcription/no work
This company really has nerve. They've posted a job ad, but they have not had work for their current MTs for weeks now. They lost a bunch of accounts, tried to shuffle their MTs to the accounts that were left, but there just is not enough work to go around. So, why post an ad when there are MTs without enough work every day of the week?
Toth Transcription-DO NOT WORK FOR THEM
It has been a week or so since anybody has posted anything, questions or otherwise, about Toth Transcription. I wanted to get the message out there to anybody considering even contacting this husband and wife team, DO NOT CONTACT THEM. If you do, you are entering at your own risk. If you do, you better "scour" over the contract. I am genuinely concerned and feel extremly bad for anybody that has or will fall prey to Toth Transcription.
FACTS: These people don't pay their MTs. They will charge you about $100 to get set up on their system. If they want to load PC Anwywhere or similar program on your computer, DON'T TAKE THE JOB. You will have to constantly TRY to contact them whether it be by phone or e-mail just to get your paycheck. Their excuses are "it must have gotten lost in the mail", "I mailed it yesterday, or I mailed it 2 days ago so you should get it any day now". If you threaten to not turn in your work until you get paid, the husband will rip you a new %!# over the phone, and send threatening e-mails. But, whether or not you turn in your work, you still won't get paid. He tries his darndest to intimidate people. I have known these people for a long time, and probably longer than most of you. There is no communication between the husband and wife, and there will be none between them and you.
The husband files bankruptcy and uses it as an excuse not to pay his people. He will only pay 5 cpl. It is insane that they actually expect somebody to work for this amount of money, but then they won't pay you anyway.
I can't stress enough that you are just asking for trouble if you go to work for them. I have posted other messages, but have only gotten 2 reponses in my e-mail.
Some posters said that their lawyers told them it would be a waste of time to sue them, as the legal fees would outweigh what Toth owes you. The Toths know this, so that is why they don't care. I would pursue lawsuits anyway, just for the satisfaction of getting this so-called business shut down and preventing them from hurting other people. They take advantage of anyone, especially newbies who are just trying to get their foot in the door.
The husband cannot hold down a job of his own. This is why he took control of what used to be his wife's business. They live high on the hog, but they barely make their bills. You are paying their bills for them.
NEWBIES: There are legitimate companies out there that hire newbies. You have to look hard, but don't jump in with both feet without doing your research.
If anybody has any questions about this, just post here. I do check through the day. If you do pursue any type of legal action, try to get as many people together as possible to do the same. If you would rather e-mail me, just go to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be verbally abused, e-mail or otherwise, by the husband.

Anyone here work for Hils transcription...

Work for Transcription Solutions
This maybe the 3rd time I have ever looked at this site, but was informed of comments and felt the need to post a reply, which I am sure I will regret posting. 1. We changed our name as we changed our services to our clients (offering work flow platform) and felt Solutions was a better fit. 2. Bounced checks have happened and have ALWAYS been delt with including any bank fees. This was NOT a common occurance and have often been when major clients have not paid their bill on time through our factoring company. 3. Tom Weber was an employee with this company. Its a real shame as we are a different company in the way we choose to operate. We do pay hourly, but have zero tolerance for cheating (which used to bite me regularly). We do not test, as I hire experienced MTs and feel that it takes 30 days to see/test and do not judge on a report or 2. Also, I think testing is just a way of getting free work. We are not perfect and have made our mistakes (some mistakes were in the MTs hired) and have had a lot of growing pains, but we have done our very best to make it right as quickly as possible. Our MTs have PLENTY of work and are getting all the hours they want. So....to whoever did the posts, I am sorry you were wronged, but I do know you were taken care of financially as quickly as possible since I have not had any contact from anyone. Obviously, there are 20+ others out there very happy to work for us and often refer friends. To those who took the advice of the post and decided not to give us try, thats okay too, but too good to be true does not always apply and there are always 2 sides. All you had to do was ask. Thats all you will ever hear from me and I will not even look for responses to this post. Thank you for your time.

I used to work for Lanier transcription before it closed.
I worked directly there at the site in Florida. The Lanier machine (like dictaphone) is great. If you use the Software developed by Lanier for text it is also great. I would not worry about the difference. I actually preferred that system to the C-phone. Of course now we have Dictaphone Extext with the demographics filling in and the 2 working together. But the Lanier system used to be wonderful. I worked on it for many years. High recommendations to that product.
