Phoenix Medical Trans.,Inc
Can anyone give me any information on Phoenix Medical Trans., Inc. working conditions and prompt payments, et cetera?   Thanks a bunch.  Just had not heard of them prior to this.
Anyone work for Phoenix Medical Trans.

I was offered a job months and months ago and for some reason regret not taking it.  Just wondering if anyone works for them and their opinion of the company.  TIA!

Phoenix MedCom and Phoenix Transcription in CA are 2 different companies
Phoenix Med is in NY. The posts seem to confuse the two at times.
This is not Phoenix MedCom fromNY...it's Phoenix from California
Phoenix MedCom doesn't pay by gross line.
Do you mean a different Phoenix...Phoenix MedCom doesn't use IM
Maybe a different company?
Trans Tech Medical Solutions or Trans Tech Svcs?
Which is the one that everyone is always saying is so good to work for?  Trans Tech Medical Solutions or Trans Tech Services out of Iowa?  Thanks for any clarity you can provide!!!!
A to Z in Phoenix? nm
Yes, A to Z in Phoenix
Any info would be helpful. Thanks again.
The company is horrible. They hired me at 8 cents per line. Management sucks. Do not even think about considering working for this company. You will be sorry in the long run............
Does any know about Phoenix? sm
Anybody ever have any experiences good or bad with Phoenix Medical Transcription in California; I think the contact person's name is Susie?  Ad says it pays by gross lines.  Any info would be appreciated!  Thanks in Advance
I had a bad experience with Phoenix Med-com out of New York. They were extremely pushy, made threats to lower our pay when a group of us could not understand a doctor who had a horrible foreign accent, and told us that we were unprofessional.
My experience was TERRIBLE!  They used intimidation, threats, and other hard-nosed tactics to coerce typists in to learning a really bad ESL.  When we all could not learn this doc, they threatened to lower our pay and told us we were unprofessional.  I would not recommend this company to ANYONE.

Phoenix Medcom uses Emdat - lots of work....visit website at www.phoenixmedcom.com.


Phoenix is a wonderful place to work for! They are really good at giving feedback and they do not get mad if ask questions. Work is almost always available. Pay is ALWAYS on time!!! I would recommend them to all who want to work for a good company!
I have been with Phoenix since they first started. I have worked on all programs that they have, being paid with and without spaces. Everything balances out. They are very proud of the work that is sent out to their clients which is a big plus for a company. They are getting new accounts all the time because of the fact that we produce quality work and this is more work for us. Cannot say enough about this company. You won't be disappointed.

How long does it take to do 600 lines without spaces and is the test indicative of the actual work? 

It can take anywhere between 3 to 5 hours, depending on if the system is slow that day, and how rapid you can be filling out the demos. There are some days I get so frustrated because I am a very fast and accurate transcriptionists - use shortcuts, word expanders, etc. but some days no matter how great I push myself I can only get about 167 to 180 lines an hour max. I get so discouraged. Their work is great, so very little ESLs. But I have nothing but good things to say about the company. They are incredibly good people to their associates.
Great company to work for.  Solid, steady work.  Good accounts and easy doctors.  Good pay and bonuses.  Send me a PM if you have questions.
Phoenix Med
Phoenix Medcom is a wonderful company to work for. They are very professional, extremely reasonable, have great work, and the people you will work with are committed to top quality. If you have a question, they always get back to you, but for the most part they leave you alone to do your work. Could not ask for more.
 Yes, Phoenix pays on the button.  I have no complaints about them.

I got Express Scribe to work for their testing and also their work by tweaking some of the settings.

I worked for Phoenix for a few months.  I had no complaints other than the fact I hated the Emdat platform, I just couldn't get my speed up. I did love doing all the OPs, and they leave you alone to do the work. The main reason I left was just because of not liking Emdat, but others don'd mind it.

SC Trans
Has anyone worked for or heard of SC Trans? Thank you!
CC Trans
I had ben contacted several times to work, then nothing, then once they contacted me and I was unable to that day, so nothing.  Now I got another call asking if I could - said yes, and guess what - nothing. Maybe they forgot who they are contacting?
Work is easy/normal, but platform is slow with entering a lot of demographics. Pay is regular at 8 cpl. Staff really easy to work with. Have you applied yet?
Med Trans, Inc.
Has anyone heard of this company? You pay $4xx.xx to take the course, and are then hired by them to work for them. They are a member of the BBB, and have very few complaints. Just can't find anything else on them.
Does anyone know the new name of Transcriptions Plus?  It is or was located in southern California.  I believe it has been renamed tho.  Does anyone know the name? Thank you.  Dee
LMT Trans
We have filled the position for radiology transcriptionist.  Thanks to all who sent resumes to LMT Trans.  We still have an opportunity for psych transcriptionists.  Please feel free to send your resume to LMTTRANS@aol.com, attention: Sarah.
Med Trans, Inc
Does anyone know any information on this company as far as work, pay, etc.?
ANP Trans
I was wondering about them.  I just started doing some research on them tonight and have read some pretty decent comments about them -- until now.  The rate sounds very low; however, if you break it down you get -- 0.0051 per word comes to about 82 cents per minute of dictation or 8 cents per line (65 characters).  When you look at it that way, it doesn't seem so bad anymore.  Pretty much right up there with every other company.  Thnx for the info about late checks. 
Is this CC trans?
no, I'm not an MTSO if that's what you're asking
CC trans
I've been doing the same thing. I'm still waiting for the fees for wire transfers and for the bounced check I had because of her bounced check to be deposited in my account. In the meantime, I need a job.
Med Trans Inc.

Does anyone have any information about this company?  I already did the archive search and found very, very little. (So, please don't tell me to do that ;) )


Thanks in advance for any information!

Med Trans

Run away from J. at MedTrans of America.  She will not pay you.  I am going to the Labor Board.  She has only voice mail and now does not answer my e-mails.  She says she does not pay for spaces.  Thank the Lord I only worked for her briefly.  Keep away.

Phoenix MedCom
I have been an MT for over 25 years and have worked with Phoenix MedCom since the day they started. I have worked with the owners and some of the staff for well over 10 years before they opened up this company. I worked for MQ for less than a month when MQ bought out the old company and would never again. At Phoenix the staff is the best, you can work 24/7, pay is great with bonuses, and there is plenty of work.
Phoenix MedCom
Came to Phoenix after working for 2 large nationals and wouldn't go back for anything! Pay is good, even w/o spaces (headers more than make up for it), accounts are great, staff are helpful. Best place I've found in years!
Phoenix Medcom
Is anyone out there currently working for Phoenix Medcom? Is your experience with the company good? I know they don't pay for spaces, but do the headers and footers REALLY make up for it not being paid for spaces? What type of platform do they use? Is it user friendly? Thanks so much!
Phoenix Medcom
Thanks SO much for the information! They sound great to me; you've helped me to make my decision.
phoenix medcom
I was told by a recruiter they pay by the 65-char line without spaces.
Phoenix MedCom, Inc.!!!
According to Phoenix MedCom's
own web site, Operative reports comprise approximately 80% of our volume. Do they now have clinic work??
Phoenix Medcom
What does anyone know about this company? Anyone working for them/has worked for them that could give me some info? I've been offered a position with them; they pay 10 to 11 cpl, but would like to know something about them from someones who's there or has been there. (Sorry, I can't seem to find any information in archives.) Thanks!
Phoenix Medcom
Nope, no shift differential. I told them I want M-Th or T-F, daytime hours, and they agreed.
phoenix medcom
Great company, I have been with them for over a year
Phoenix MedCom
I took the 2 years ago.  It was the worst test ever!!  I didn't think it would ever end; it was CRAZY long!  I did pass it; however, I ended up going with another company.
Phoenix MedCom or MDI?
Has anyone here worked for either of these companies? If so, did you like working for them?  Any advice would help.  Thanks! 
Phoenix MedCom.
I have been with the company since they started. No complaints at all. Lots of accounts.
Phoenix MedCom
They paid me $15.00 per hour for my training.
