Nothing in the archives, is that good or is that bad? Thanks.
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
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.
Anyone else working for First Choice
    Anyone else notice anything unusual this week?   I can't nail it down, but something feels out of whack.   I was just wondering if anyone else had an odd week as well.    
Anyone currently working for First Choice? sm
Are you happy with them? Pros, cons.
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 - what kind of platform etc.?
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!
If you are working every weekend, that is only by your choice..sm
I'll say it one more time, NO OTHER PROFESSION BE IT MEDICAL, SECURITY, OR EVEN THE CLERK AT THE CORNER CONVENIENT STORE HAS TO WORK EVERY SINGLE SATURDAY OR SUNDAY OR BOTH! I refuse because my child comes first! I won't miss her games. I also feel obligated to have her in church. I'll take a 1/2 cent paycut for my child and God. As much as I need money, nothing will ever come before family or God...EVER!
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.
Working for WebMedX is a good choice
From the companies available to work for, I would say this is one of the better.  They have really decent benefits, the pay is good, they don't hassle you.  Feedback/QA is great.  I have to say they are one of my favorites that I have worked for and they are very fair to the employees.  (Another good company is Phoenix).
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.

Has any worked for QT Medical for radiology? They got an account that I was working sm

on for another company and I want to apply, but cannot find anything about them.  I am currently with Peachtree and am tired of being an IC and I need steady work.  Can you give me any good, bad or other information?  TIA

Anyone ever work/currently working for Medical Transcription Services, Green Bay, WI?? Offered..sm
new radiology account there, great people to correspond with, but info is extremely scarce....have a few offers to weigh.....anybody??? Merry Christmas!  
My mom was a lab tech, so I grew up knowing about working holidays in the medical field sm

so it is no big deal to me.  I do not have any children, so I have pretty much always volunteered to work the holidays so that others can be with their families.  As someone pointed out, when you work at home for the holiday, you can jump off and on whenever you want, so it does not really feel so much like working. 

Sorry that you are unhappy about it, but unfortunately, people still get sick on the holidays, and part of being in the medical profession is accepting that you will work some holidays. 

Hope the New Year brings you lots of things to be happy about. 

Ditto.. Over 13 years experience working in hospitals doing all types of reports, currently working
for a national etc.. and Spheris told me I didnt have the qualifications. What cracked me up was the hospital I was working at at the time contracted some of our work out to them.. What a joke..I was good enough to work for a hospital and gave them work, yet not qualified enough for them. What is wrong with this picture.
MQ same situation. No pay for working holidays, no pay for working weekends nothing. Now noone works
much anymore and so they jerk the work out of the accounts to some place that throws it back with a lot of bad bad quality. This is the NE region. I dont know what the others are doing.
working from home is awesome but working for DSG is not...
horrible dictators, sound quality is bad, no answers to emails and they run out of work consistently...that is just my experience though...
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
First Choice
This is by far the best company to work for. Great platform, great pay, great owner and staff. I wouldn't work for any other company!!!
would be your choice obviously
personally, I don't rely too much on what these boards say, everybody has their own opinion - - I don't believe they have a high turnover, the MT list seems to be growing it you ask me, I still see the same names I always saw and communicate regularly with the MTs, not sure whree this person is getting their info - - but ultimately it's your choice. I've been around to all the major MTSOs and for the past 3 years, Diskriter has done what none of the others could, supplied me with daily work during MY scheduled hours or paid me downtime
Your choice. sm
It depends on your situation.  If you are single with no other bennies I would say DR.  If your are single and in need of benefits, tell the recruiter you want to be on a smart-source account, wherein you are actually an employee of the hospital with DR as a liason.  I made an OK living but have affordable health insurance, dental, vision, long-term disability, short-term disability and life insurance.  What I like best is our T-leader does not tolerate cherry picking.  If you are married, I say be an IC, if not you are better off on a DR SMART-SOURCE account.
TRS is a bad choice

I worked at that place for several years, they go through more changes than anywhere I ever worked.  You rarely get to stay on one account and they do not give you anything except for do more, do more.  The only way to get anywhere with that company is to kiss butt and give until it hurts. 

I have to say, if you go to TRS you will be feeling like you are in haties before long.  Consider yourself warned they are NOT the employer of the year like their president and vice president would like to believe they are, they will cheat you out of your life if you let them. 

Working at McDonald's selling hamburbers is a fantastic step up from TRS. 

It's your choice -- use your own PC or theirs. nm

I believe it's your choice ... (sm)
I have always just preferred using the Word auto-correct as my expander, so that's what I use. There's not one built into the platform, and I think you can just use whatever Expander you want. Seems like I remember talk of some of the MTs building some stuff up in ShortCut, so I know that one is compatible.
