First Choice Medical

      Have worked for FC for several years.  Small and growing.  If you are a solid MT who shows up, does the job well and care about the work you do, you should do well.  

           No multilevel management to deal with.  If you have a problem and want to talk to the boss, she wants to talk to you.   QA is fair and tough at times (as they need to be) - we follow the BOS with only exception when the client says otherwise.  Care about your work and you'll find quickly you have no difficulty with our QA.  

   We get paid on time DD.

          As far as the boss, one of the finest people I've ever known, in the business or out.  She will listen to you and she will back you up when it's necessary.

         As far as not hearing much on the boards, we are all busy working. Very busy.   Not every company fits every person. If you are lucky enough to find a fit with FC, I think you are quite lucky indeed.  I know I am.

First Choice Medical
Any info on this company would be greatly appreciate,  i.e. pay, software, paydays, etc.
Does anyone know if First Choice Medical (Florida)

uses internet based platform or whether you need unlimited long distance?  I'm pretty sure they are IC only but not sure about long distance vs internet.  Thanks:)

QT medical I think still offers the choice
of WP51 or Word use.
First Choice Medical QA position
Anybody currently working at First Choice Medical FL
who can give me any info, the good, bad or ugly?
oops, and First Choice Medical.........
Any beefs about First Choice Medical?
First Choice Medical might work. sm
The minimum daily requirement is 30 minutes of dictation. People are wonderful, QA is gently strict, and the pay is good. Don't know if it's hiring, though. IC only.
First Choice Medical - recent?
Does anybody have recent experience with this company?  I saw in the archives multiple mentions of poor sound quality; wondering if this has improved as of late.
can anyone tell me what platform First Choice uses. Thanks!!
What platform does First Choice use?
First Choice Medical. Could someone who works there contact me please? sm

 I am considering a position there and wonder how hard it is to get a good line count with their accounts, platform, demographics, etc.  I would love to hear from someone who can help me.  Thanks.

First Choice Medical, a transcription service. nm
Any recent info on First Choice Medical? sm
I've looked in the archives.  The sound files seem to be an issue, but there is nothing very recent on them.  Has sound improved?
Try First Choice Medical (in Florida). When I worked for it, sm
they required a minimum of 30 minutes of dictation per day. You pick the days. Pay was good. Staff was great!
It is First Choice Medical and they are a great company. Nothing bad to say. Try'em. nm
First Choice Medical- flexible? weekend work
First Choice, QT Medical, Metro Transcription in Atlanta, sm
and I am sure there are others. These are the ones that I know of.
First Choice Medical is a great company to work for, and I think they are hiring too.
I have been there for over 4 years now. They use WP51 too if you want. Good luck to you.
Would any current or past employees of First Choice Medical please email me...sm

I have been offered a job there and am trying to make a decision.  I am curious about the type of accounts they have, the platform they use, whether ShortHand works with it, how much work they actually have, and any other information you would care to share.  I know it is always best to hear from current employees to get the real story and would SO much appreciate if someone could help me with my decision.  Thank you.

what is Beyond TXT? Is that some kind of platform?
What kind of platform do they use? nm
What kind of platform do you use?
I currently do this kind of work in addition to my medical accounts...sm
The rate seems pretty low, at least compared to what I make, and I can tell you from my experience with this type of work, it is very tedious. Expanders aren't nearly as helpful as in medical transcription, so it's pretty much straight typing. On the other hand it is a nice change of pace from the medical aspect, but for what they want to pay, probably best suited to a newbie.
What kind of platform does TransHealth use, and is it really productive? SM
I am seriously thinking of making a change but I need a good, slick program to work on. If there's anything I hate, it's a bulky platform LOL.  Also do they have good benefits all the way around, and are you treated with respect?  I guess mainly I'm worried about whether I can make close to $1000 per week, given time to get used to my accounts.  I have 27 years of experience and am fairly fast.  Thanks for any info you care to share!!  
What kind of platform does Diskriter use? Is it easy
What kind of platform does People Support use?
Isnt their family medical insurance kind of high. I think that is
why I passed on them previously and they only wanted to pay 7.5 cpl for 12 years of experience.
p.r.n. Medical Services platform?
What platform does prn Medical Servieces use? 
Anyone contact Augusta Medical Trans to see what they were offering as far as acct, platform, pay?
RISS is not a platform. RIS stands for Radiology Information System. The platform sm
would be EXText.
MDI-MD platform is fast, not full of problems like Transcend platform or MDI-FL

On Transcend platform you have to click, click, click all day and still get errors, change screens constantly -  its a nightmare to work in. 

Yes, SPi does use this platform....it's a great platform, but not worth working for SPi. nm
Bad Platform. I personally know of 3 MTs who left because of the platform.
If you are like me, the bottom line is wages and what I get in my check. I have never worked for Amphion, but I personally know of 3 MTs who worked part-time at Amphion before quitting their other service to see what Amphion had to offer before it was too late. All 3 quit Amphion and stayed with their other service because of the Amphion platform. Too hard to make any decent lines.

Something to think about.


Here is one post from a couple days back:

Posted By: Amphion on 2005-12-02

To all of us trying our hardest to grab our work when it is available, and then still only make 24 bucks a day because of the garbage platform.

First Choice does.

Get out while it is still your choice. It seems like

things have gotten worse since I left. Which is hard to believe!

Not all companies are like Heartland. Best of luck to you.

OSi is by far, your #1 choice.
I have been at OSi for 2 years now.  Worked for Medquist for...um....let's see...about a month before I realized what I had gotten myself into.  OSi isn't perfect, but they sure strive to be.  Constant feedback, almost everyone has a positive attitude and loves their job.  My Team Lead is pretty awesome.  She makes my job so much easier.  Let me know how I can help you make the right decision.  I'd love to help you out in any way I can. 
they said we would have a choice about
ASR beginning 10/01, told my boss I would not do ASR, guess what I am getting today................. ASR STAT reports!!!!!! Not a supervisor in the company working today that I can find
First Choice

Asked to test for this company. Is this a good company to work for, plenty of work, pay on time, etc.? Any info would be greatly appreciated!

First Choice sm

I don' t work for First Choice, but I applied and passed the test. I was contacted by the recruiter to set up an interview. The very next day she told me all the accounts were caught up, and she couldn't hire me at this time. I thought that was a little odd.

Yes! First Choice, QT, and I believe JLG, also. nm
First Choice
Thanks so much!
First Choice
Any info on First Health. I am training tomorrow, wondering about the program they use and their accounts?  Also the staff.
First Choice
Could you please tell me more about First Choice?  I have not heard of this company until now.  TIA
