Serving Over 20,000 US Medical Transcriptionists

Anyone see Texas Ranch House and think that

Posted By: PBS fan on 2006-05-08
In Reply to:

there is a similiarity in the medical transcription business?  The MTs are the cowboys, the ranch owners the MTSO and the daughters like the doctors?  The cowboys do all the work, the owners try to extract as much as they can from the cowboys while paying as little as they have to, and the daughters do virtually nothing but complain about the cowboys/MTs?

Estrella Mountain Ranch
is a very nice community and there aren't many like it. I live in Avondale which is just southeast of Goodyear and our house value has skyrocketed. We bought at $170K and appraised at $250K a year later. If you are looking for a community with the clubhouses, water parks, jogging trails, and golf courses like Estrella you are going to pay a pretty penny no matter where they are I guess. I'd suggest looking at the new communities in Buckeye (just west of Goodyear/Avondale)as they are just starting to boom and are starting in the 140s right now or on the west side of Surprise. Look at the web sites of the home builders here to see where they are starting new master planned communities. Ryland Homes, Standard Pacific, Fulton Homes, Del Webb, Beazer Homes, Continental Homes, Hacienda Homes just to name a few.
Ranch Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

I don't know about you...but I get sick of the same old thing for dinner...uggghhh  Try this...last night my family was the trial and gave the verdict....mmmm..mmmm...good....ENJOY

Ranch Turkey Meatloaf

2 eggs

3/4 c. of ranch flavored tortilla chips (crushed into small pieces)

3 Tbsp. Salsa (I used mild...depends on how spicy you like things)

2 Tbsp. Ranch Salad dressing...(I only use Kraft...but I am sure you can use any other kind of Ranch dressing)

1 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. poultry seasoning

1 tsp. minced garlic

1 lb. ground turkey

Mix all the ingredients together....until you get a meatloaf consistency.  Then put into a baking dish and bake @ 350 degrees for one hour.  Serve this with salsa and sour cream (strictly your preference) but dipping in the salsa and sour cream just enhances the turkey loaf...  ENJOY!!!

Let me know what you think...

A beautiful peacock that my girlfriend has on her horse rescue ranch!!
I would have been a hooker at Bunny Ranch (they make $1200/hr). My equipment is obsolete now


I think she is thinking of the one in Austin, I believe.  Don't remember when it was, but I do remember someone shooting at the students on campus, was it University of Texas?

Don't come to Texas either - UGH

TEXAS school
Does anybody know of a good MT school in Dallax, TX
Texas School
Stay away from the "trade" schools and business colleges - nothing but a waste of your or the governments money - I know, I worked for one. Try to find a community or junior college with an accredited program. The noncredit courses are also mostly a waste of your time and money - unless you already have some experience and are just wanting to brush up. Hope this helps.
TransTech in Texas does them. nm
lived in Texas too
I posted to you about where to look. We also lived in Dallas and they are overpriced too.  You don't pay a state income tax in Florida, but there are a lot of hidden sales taxes and such.    The problem with living on the water is you can't get insurance and if you find it, it's extremely high.  We left Florida and went to Biloxi, Mississippi and it was about half the cost of Florida and we were 1 block from the beach. We had planned to go back but it will take a few years to be rebuilt. In the meantime, heading to TN as they do not have a state income tax, a vehicle tax, and the property taxes are much much less.

Pecos, Texas
is where I was born...a hot dry dusty place.  Lived around Ft.Worth area growing up, then got married and raised a family around Cleburne, TX....I currently live in Arkansas, where it is beautiful and the people are more friendly.  I have 20 acres in the woods, so could not be in a better place for me.  I have my two dogs, three cats and together we are a pack, with me as the leader of course, ha ha.  Kids have grown and left home, are both in their 20's.  Gotta get back to work.  Living out here is the perfect place to work from home, but I cannot just work all day in a nightgown, have to get dressed except for shoes (like to use footpedal barefooted) to get in a mindset of "going to work".
Hope this is not a doc in Texas. sm
I had a podiatry doc that did this and it was not worth doing as he only wanted to pay 3.50 per page but the margins were 0.25 on each side, 9 size font, and 0.25 top and bottom margin. Awful, awful, awful!
Texas Tech
Nope--I'm in Texas
Live in Texas....
I'm on balanced billing since I like to know exactly what my bill will be every month. It is $238/month year round. We have a family of 4 and keep the house at 75 all the time with all the fans running as well. My DH would like to keep it cooler, but that is cool enough for me!

Stay away from the D/FW area and Houston - too much traffic and illegals.  Drugs, gangs, etc.  Try to find a small town or country setting.  It is HOT and the concrete of the cities just increases that heat.  Also the pollution in these areas is bad so if you have any type of lung or breathing problems - stay away.  However, if you do not mind sitting in traffic for an hour to get to a job 10 miles away - then you should move to a big city.  If you are planning to work from home, remember that internet is not available everywhere in Texas.  Personally, I wouldn't move to Texas - I would choose SC or FL - much better options.



Is it the Texas heat?

I think we may have worked for the same lady!  She never had the AC on in her office except for a unit in the room with the phone equipment to keep it cool, so my husband used to say that it must be the heat frying her brain cells.  If it isn't the same lady, it's a real clone.  I don't work for her anymore, either!



Actually, in Texas the employer must have
if they do have such policy, they must follow it.

I checked. :)

Texas Coast
just had the CBS affiliate on here in Miami and they are saying Ike is now a Cat 1, but expected to strengthen to a Cat 3 with landfall either in TX or Mexico by Saturday morning.
Texas drivers
I live in TX and have never heard of this. Have ins through AAA, just renewed last month in fact. No mention of this. Where did you get your quote?
I had the same problem with a Texas Co. Email me
I'm just wondering who the company is and if it is the same one I worked for. I eventually got paid but they used the old "check got lost in the mail" routine.
sleet and snow in texas!
what a nice change.  We went from 88 to 20 degrees, it's awesome!
fort worth, texas
Still here too!
She was from Texas. May be the same person. Initials BF?
Add me to your list. BF in Texas ripped me off too.

Never heard back from her until we got a RESUME from her looking for work.  The rip off was 3 months ago, the resume a week ago.  Called the number on there, left a message, emailed her.  Now the number is disconnected, the email is invalid.  I am so ticked off that I feel for this !!


Texas Hill Country
I second the suggestion of moving to the Hill Country.  It is beautiful!  My brother lives in Canyon Lake, about 30 miles north of San Antonio.  You have to like driving though, because to get anywhere you have to drive a lot.   From the house my brother lived in when we visited a few years ago he had to drive 15 miles to the grocery store, and that was considered "just around the corner."  He couldn't buy ice cream because it would melt on the way home!
MT jobs in Texas - Dallas or Austin

Hello All,

With my job (non MT), I have the chance to move to either Austin or Dallas. I'd be bringing my girlfriend with me but this means she'd have to leave her current MT job which works directly with a hospital. Does anyone have any pointers on who's hiring for MTs in either Austin or Dallas preferably working out of the home? She currently makes 75k a year since her employeer provides a lot of double overtime. Could this much be made in Austin or Dallas? She'd possibly look at working for an outsourcing company as well (hopefully with benefits). Any pointers on outsouring as well would be nice.


Many Thanks

Transtech medical in Texas. I found them when

I was running out of work every day.  They are wonderful and very nice.  Transcend is not that great. 

.10 gross line. I'm in Texas, Dr. is in Florida

They're a small company in Texas. Would that be the one? nm
Lufkin Texas or to be more specific Hudson. sm
Hudson has Lufkin addresses but 2 different school districts. The schools in Hudson are awesome! Lufkin schools - hmm not so much! It is a growing area with around 40+ thousand people. Great great area for raising children.
1 hurricane in 30 years or every year. I'd take Texas :)
Just kidding with u but I have been to Florida..... Talk about illegals! woweee. Not saying all over, just where I have been. See...... generalizations help no one. If you don't live there, you do not know so please consider your response. And, yes I was actually raised in Pasadena/Houston TX area and NO WAY would I want to live there again. :)
go ahead, texas MT, tell 'em the rest
of it - how "you don't mess with Texas". LOL
I just speak plain ole Texas vernacular....sm
And I don't wanna hear one mean word about it. When I was transcribing, I typed in classical, perfectly grammatical American English, but now I post (and talk) just like I please. :D :D
Texas drivers ~ insurance by the mile....

Have any of you heard of this?  It is auto insurance charged by the miles driven.  I got a quote online for myself and it is very reasonable for me but not for the 17-yo.


Fort Hood, Texas....army hospital *S*
AAMT member, yes. Love Texas de Brazil!!
I worked for a Texas company who had 90% ESLs and not just Texans sm

It was EFD and OMGoodness!  They were the toughest reports in the world!  They were primarily Hispanic and the 3 American's who were not ESLs were Texans and might as well have been ESLs.

If it is EFD I am here to tell you, really great people when I was there, but the account was tough for me THEN.  I suspect that these days I would be fine. 

Thank you for this info!! Texas has passed law to be effective sept. 1, 2006!!!! nm

Before needing to work, I did volunteer work through the Junior League where I am from in Texas. lm

Junior League was like a full-time job sometimes, but I loved it. Now that I have to work, even though it is from home, I still volunteer through my son's school.  I am a school teacher in my previous (pre-MT) life, so I volunteer my tutoring services for children who need the help beyond what the schools are able to provide but whose parents cannot afford to pay for private tutoring. I also know how you felt about being afraid.  I was strangely afraid before I joined the Junior League.  It was just the unknown. But I was SO blessed by being able to help.  Honestly, I am sure that it helped me just as much, if not more, than I helped others.  Go for it.  You won't be sorry.  (Just remember that you have to say NO when you have to say no, okay?  Remember that and you will be richly blessed by the experience!)
