If anyone is happy at a company doing radiology, I would appreciate if you would share that info (you may e-mail me if you wish). I am getting burned out on the promises of working in radiology and then running out of work everyday and being told if I want to get my lines/hours I need to do some medical records transcribing. I have been in radiology 13 years, not a spring chicken anymore and do not want to start from the beginning in another type of transcription. This has happened with two companies this year and I am getting tired of the deceptive advertising.

Company with the best radiology?
I just tested with Keystrokes for a radiology account and will be testing for Southern Transcription Services soon. To all rad MTs, does anyone have idea as to which company they feel has the best radiology accounts? (pay, workload, etc)? Thanks for any info.
Best company for radiology MTs to work.
I'm looking for a company that hires radiology MTs. Thanks.
Company hiring for Radiology
I just hired on at Precyse Solutions 2 days ago, and I think they may still be looking for Radiology MT's - I do only Radiology. They hire you as employee -- no IC status.
Well..I just started doing Radiology for a company and they pay by (sm)
the report. I haven't done a lot of reports yet but today I typed maybe 20 just to get familiar with the platform and they were almost all normal reports with very few lines. So for now I'm glad I'll be paid by the report!
Any OSI radiology MTs care to share your experience with this company?
Does anyone recommend a pretty good company that is good to work for, pay always on time and plenty
of work. I know that is asking a lot, but just curious?
Strictly IC, good company, hard accounts, good platform.
Good pay, always on time, no direct deposit though.
Is Transcend a good company with a good platform to work on. They are advertising.
Webmedx hires some ICs. Good company. So sorry for your loss. Good luck!
TransTech for many reasons, good pay, stable company, good benefits
I have looked around the last 6 months and have found nothing better. Have turned down numerous jobs, and have finally decided to stay put. The better insurance plans were announced and even moreso than ever, I am staying put, and my paycheck is happy about that because it is getting better every day. Good luck to you.
TransTech is a good company. Debbie is the owner and a good one at that! nm
Good company, great people, good benefits.
Affordable insurance. Good luck!
Keystrokes has the best radiology accounts IMO. I have plenty of work and radiology only. nm
I make a good living and rarely run out of work. When I do, it is for a few minutes at a time and usually because the rads have not started early enough. No other complaints!
I know JLG and they are a good company with a good group of people
I joined JLG about 9 month ago and I am thrilled with the experience that I have had. Although the company has been around for 20+ years, a group of good industry veterans who know how to operate fairly to both employees and clients have joined the company in the past year. I followed my manager from another giant company.
I have also worked on this account and it was plauged with problems from the start. The hospital required the account to be implemented in a matter of days, there were technical issues and the hospital management staff was new and the employees were mad because transcription had been outsourced. Personally, I won't miss this client but good luck to those that get it.
There is plenty of work at JLG and I have already been advised on my new assignments
DSG is a good company. The sound quality is good sm
but I don't understand why they are hiring. In the a.m. was have NO work. The afternoon and evenings do have more work though.
or maybe it's really a good company. Give me a break. If a company isn't talked about sm
on here, good or bad, it's probably too small to matter and does not offer benefits or anything at all.
Keystrokes for radiology. They are the biggest for radiology out of all of the companies out there.
I have been there 2 years and have been very happy. I make a lot more money than when I worked for Edix/Spheris.
Good company, with good incentive SM
pay scale, decent health plan for full-timers, lower end for other benefits, well organized and dependable, good platform, good support. Very heavy ESL, medium-sized community medical centers, relatively high SR pay rate because it takes longer overall to clean it up. However--good producers who put in a good workday make quite good money here.
Keystrokes has a radiology division. They used to be radiology only but their sm
customers started referring other departments to them.
I know that they just got a bunch of new accounts!
For radiology, Keystrokes is the way to go. They seem to have the most radiology accounts. sm
I have been very, very busy since starting with them 19 months ago. No complaints at all other than one or two of the radiologists who speak at the speed of light and expect us to be able to transcribe what sounds to be a mouse on a treadmill!
I have been with them for awhile now. Every one is wonderful and helpful. I thought it was a 65 character per gross line. I am going to look back through my notes. If it is not, I still make a line count that I am happy with and still improving. Pay is always on time. Have a good day.
I am happy with them. Good accounts, very rare to run out of work, good managers, decent pay. I feel I have been fairly treated.
D*** good company, go for it
I was off of QA in 3 days, overtime yes, benefits, yes. GO FOR IT, EXCELLENT COMPANY.
GOOD IC COMPANY!
I have found Philbrick Transcription (based out of CT) to be a great company and they only offer IC status. They have a great starting line rate too!!! www.philbricktranscription.com
Anyone out there know about Cy Med. Is it a good company sm
How do they pay? Do they count lines fairly? Do they have a lot of bad ESL? They seem like a nicer, kinder MT company even offering time and a half until you get up to speed. Are they liars who say anything to get you to sign on? Can you expect them to be true to their word? Thanks any and all imput! What a crazy world. I am going wild trying to find a nice MT company.
Wonderful group of people to work with. Been there since August, with a few problems at home, and they have been great. Very high standards for quality.
Good company. sm
One downside is occasionally running low on work, but I have plenty of backups, so I never run out. Platform gets quirky sometimes, but it doesn't stop me from producing and earning bonuses. Great people. Come on over.
I don't consider them a good company. I
took their test to work for them and I have more than 18 years of experience and they sent me a really insulting letter telling me to apply again in six months when I had more experience.
The audio was horrible and I had no way of slowing the dictation down.
I asked about what errors I had made and of course they told me to call. I was not going to do that if they could not even give me an estimate of my mistakes which they could easily have done. I was not about to play phone tag when I needed to work badly and had to wait till I was finished for the day to take the stupid test.
When you don't have the right equipment, just how are you supposed to take a test. I know that I got the answers to the written part right and I did the best I could with the dictation which I say was awful, but to insult me like that having 18 years of experience and sending that shoddy letter just infuriated me. I will never try again, I'll sure bet.
Glad the rest of you got past the front door and liked it. I thought I sure would have. Oh, well. I
MDI is a good company
I've been there about 5 months now, and I really like it. Pay is good and always on time - either employee or IC status. Good benefits but family insurance is expensive. Flexible as far as schedule and if you have doctor appointments or whatever. Never had any problem with that. Management has always been more than fair about any issues that I've had. The platform I work on is word based, but they have several different platforms - just depends where they need help and what you're needs are. Work was a little slow in the summer, but there's been plenty lately. I think every company has a slow time in the summer, or at least that's been my experience. I've been with other nationals, and so far, MDI is by far the best one I've worked for. Very happy there.
TT is a good company.
that are a piece of cake. Some, I hear, are not. Some of the ESLs in back posts are said to be very hard to understand.
No. Not a good company
A lot of MTs left this company for a lot of reasons, none good. I liked them at first, but that did not last.
They seem to be a good company (SM)
Not a lot of bad about them on the web. I interviewed and tested for them, but the recruiter was off line and had computer troubles, never recontacted me, so I went with another company. It would be a good choice, I think. They offer a complete surgical position. At one time, there was a $2,000 sign-on bonus paid out $500 every 3 months. Might be worth a try, still. Good luck.
In your own opinion, which company would be the BEST? I am in desparate need of getting a new job (MAJOR problems with current company). Don't want to get screwed around, pay decent and decent dictators. Thanks everyone!!!
RE: Good Company
Give Transcend a try.
I would suggest trying Transtech. They are very fair, pay on time, and offer good benefits. I have been with them for about 6 months and I am very happy.
Good/bad company - sm
Well, not paying on time, paying incorrectly, doing the bait and switch after hiring, terrible platform where you cannot use your Expander and/or no spell checker, wicked QA that picks on you for the least little thing that has no bearing on the record itself, overbearing management, constantly emailing with threats or inconsistent personalities, horrible sound quality and/or horrible dictators that NO ONE can do and make money at, awful tech support, and I'm sure the list goes on and on.....
I have been working for them a little over a year and have been very happy. The program is great; it's very easy to use. Sound quality has been very good. I was assigned one account when I first started that had very poor sound quality. I'm not sure if the problem was at their end or mine, but I asked if I could switch accounts and they had no problem with that.
Work is plentiful. The only time I have run out is around the holidays, but it doesn't last for long, and I think you'll find that's the case with most companies.
There have been many negative postings about them, but I honestly have been quite happy with them. I think some people are just chronic complainers! You're always going to find things you don't like no matter where you work. You just have to decide if the good outweighs the bad.
Really sad because at first they were a very good company
Really disappointed because I have always worked hard for them, had 99% or better QA reviews, and never missed my line counts until now.
This is a good company. They have a lot of benefits and they pay very well.
What does that mean. Is it a good company or not.
