I need a wav USB pedal today.  Is there any store in NY that supplies them?
psych Trans
I did psychiatric years ago at a psych hospital before there were line counts and we were paid by the line. However I do remember that even the ESLs were somewhat repetitive. I don't know a lot about Expanders as I didn't learn with them, but from what I understand, they may be instrumental in helping you all making this line count. I would think that you should get the same line count as the rest of the company and it is unfair for them to make you get 500 more. Psych is sometimes considered easier in terminology, but on the other hand I found the reports to be very much longer. An op could be done much quicker. They should treat you all the same. I don't do radiology so I don't know why they have so much more, but this whole thing seems a little unfair to me.
Seeking home-based MT job from Canada!!!

Hello, I am seeking a full-time MT job from home (in Canada). I want to work for a great company that pays well. I also want my computer and all required supplies paid by the company. I will pay for high speed internet!! Where I reside, we have fibreoptic telephone lines - therefore it is the best place to do medical transcription, the quickest speed of voice data and the clearest in north america!! We also rarely have storms here! I live in New Brunswick, 1 hour for calais, Maine.

I have 5+ years of experience and I am also a coder trained in Toronto. HOpe to hear from you soon. Thanks!






desperately need help
Can anyone give me some insight into how to handle a company that continuously does not pay on time and now is refusing to tell me the status of recent payroll.  I have resigned from this company and am now working for another, but the lack of the currnet paycheck is going to put me with no power and now phone.  I need some serious advise asap.
Why is it that the more desperately you need your paycheck,
the later the mailman is delivering?
I think she's a dork who desperately needs attention
oops...forgot my "s"...that should be desperately! and I am!

Desperately need debt consolidation help.
Can anyone recommend a reputable debt consolidation service that they have used to help successfully get them out of debt?  I just want to break down and cry, but we have to do something as our credit card debt/medical bills are through the roof and unmanagable due to tough times findings jobs, etc.  Thank you for any advice you can give.
How do you go wireless in a motel and as one said, in the car? Desperately need to know.
ok guys, 9 jobs in the system, we need your help DESPERATELY!
 four to five times a day we are in dire need of help with all but 10-20 jobs on the system.  Did someone overdo the coffee or what.
They are trying desperately to balance their runaway budget
Have you heard about the new naturalization process aimed at 11 million illegals in the country... along with some hoops to jump through (Learning English - ???) etc., they must pay 2000 dollars.

Do the math 11 million x 2000
its not a lot but its something
Exactly what I was seeking
Yes, this the kind of advice I was seeking. Thank you!!!
I'm seeking out a second job...
Right now. I don't mind helping a company meet their goals and deadlines, as long as they help me meet my goals and deadlines by giving me enough work to make enough to live on.

Hopefully it won't come down to me having to seek out a 3RD job.
Seeking information
Could anyone tell me anything about MDI on their Meditech Radiology Accounts? I would like to hear from anyone who is currently or have been previously employed with this company.  Specifically concerning their line counting, is this calculated by Meditech or some other method?  How accurate do you feel their method is and if you could maybe give me an average estimate on daily line counts you have experienced.  Also anything you can tell me about the work flow for the weekends.  Does it easily run out?  Any information would be appreciated.  Thank you.
Seeking information
Sorry about that.  FL
I was seeking a response
from someone other than my TL because she makes me feel I'm bothering her.  In general, what is the role of a team leader?
Seeking my own account
If anyone has an account in the Atlanta, GA area that they'd like to pass on or know of a doc who is looking for a reliable Transcriptionist (work from home), please email me.

seeking work
I need some advice on applying for jobs.  I have 8 years acute experience but have never worked for an online company.  I have my own computer, and am willing to add any programs, buy the books, whatever.  I am fairly firm about not working Sundays or graveyard, but all the rest of the week is fine.  I want to quit this in-house job and go home.  I have applied to 6 companies;  one likes me but said they have no work which I am taking as a nice brush-off - I aced everything - I aced all the written tests, flunked the first company's transcription test, but now I  either don't get that far or I pass the trans test.  I am knocking myself out, leaving this in-house job nightly and spending at leats 2 more hours on the compuer applying.  What is it?  ARe there any tips?  Is it that I've never worked from home?  Please help me just a little if you can. I'm losing my self-confidence. 
Seeking good company

Anyone have any info on Eight Crossings, Inc, or Sierra Medscribe?

Or know any services that will either accept MTs with dial-up, or help pay for satellite?

email me. I used to work with J too and I live in the town next to her. I can help you get in touch.
new here/wanting to leave MQ/seeking a better place!
That's right, MQ has finally really, really gotten to me after eight long years!  I have told and told and told myself that it's okay there are major lawsuits against the company that imply terrible wrongdoing, it is okay that MQ seems to change CEOs every few months, it is okay that I haven't had a raise in two years, it is okay that I do a brilliant job without anyone caring... and finally, finally, it is just not okay.  I am talking to Medware who apparently won Employer of the Year in 2002 and 2005.  Can I get a witness?  Anybody work for them?  What about Spheris?  Flexibility of schedule is utterly crucial to me, and I have to have benefits, so no IC work.  Where can I go where they'll appreciate me?  I'm a former high school English teacher with 15 years as an MT (8 in acute care) and some QA experience.  Help???
seeking info on general transcription,
I agree. Bean-counters desperately wanting to believe the exaggerated claims for SR make them easy
I agree. Sounds like a controlling attention-seeking parent so
Re: AMA Trans
Hi. I also did their mentoring program, but after 7 months, I found my own part time IC job. They called me one time to offer me a hospital position, and asked if I was interested in it. I never heard anything more about it after that, and passed up a couple of good opportunities elswhere while waiting. I eventually gave up and found two part time IC jobs on my own. The only thing I got from them was experience, I suppose. I think alot of it depends on how well they like you. Also, with the $400 I spent, what was included was a digital voice player, etc. I ended up replacing it because when i wanted a foot pedal, nothing was compatible with their software. They are affiliated with Opportunity Software, who tends to charge more than anyone else for a similar product, just to be compatible with their products. Make your own determinations, I guess, about whether it is a scam or not, I just know that they didn't do a whole lot for me, other than give me some experience. Good Luck.

e trans plus
Does anyone have any information or opinions on this company?  I am considering a position with them.  I searched the archives, but the postings are all old.
A. I strongly discouraged anyone I meet who has signed up for any kind of program at the community colleges or elsewhere who wants to learn transcription. It's really distressing to see people pay their hard earned money for training in a field that is virtually in the toilet. I find myself making 1/2 of what I was making 10 years ago as an MT with no benefits and 50% more grief.
Anybody do chiropractic trans?...
Have only done radiology before...was wondering if, with this background, would it be possible to break into working for local chiro's or if totally different type of work.  Anybody having done this type of transcription before with any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
chiro trans
Yes, I do several.  Not overly difficult.  You must absolutely know your anatomy, and there are several "maneuvers" and tests that you need to know.  If you have a Stedman's Ortho book, you should be fine. 
California trans
Yes, they are a great company.
med trans student
Please consider starting with something ultra-stodgy and respectable... like a large teaching hospital or a university. the larger, the better. You will need this kind of atmosphere for learing, and exchange of ideas. Once you've been there a few years, you will know your field better, and the +/- situations around you about other companies. You will know a WHOLE lot more about what you want to do with your time, and your career. Let them pay you, teach you, give you days off and benefits, and then from tht position of SECURITY, you make better decisions.
Med Trans Schools?
Hello!  Hoping that someone may be able to provide some guidance.  I am looking at starting school in about 1 month, but trying to determine if distance or class room learning would be best.  And how difficult is it to get started in the field?  Any assistance that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
Med Trans Schools?
I did distance learning through a community college for all of my courses, it was the only way I could even go to college with a job and family to tend to. I got just as good an education as some one who sat in class three times a week. However, you must be self disiplined to be able to set aside your own time to work and study. You also have to have a Proctor site, somewhere to go take test. You local community college should be where you go through for that. I also heard some libraries and schools participate too.
cambridge trans
I tested at cambridge transcription and realized very quickly I hated legal transcription. However, I think they are a good company you can find them on the web. I think they also do corporate transcription, not sure what that's about.
There's several different "Global Trans"...
do you mean Global Transcription Services out of Davie, FL?

If so...I'd highly recommend them. There always seems to be work and the owner always pays on time (sometimes early).
can you work for two different trans. companies?
Does anyone have a phone # for Trans Tech in TN?
Rad trans in central NC city - $16.40/hr
but with 16 years' experience in acute care and radiology
What harm is it to the company for another trans to know
what accounts they have? I know what account a lot of trans work on for other companies! I am another one who doesn't see what everyone is fussing about. It's not like hearing that hospital's name is going to send another transcription company after their work - everyone already knows that they have to have transcription so it's no big secret that SOMEONE is doing it???
It doesn't have to do w/ medical trans - SM
That's why this is the general board. Smoking and dinner message don't have anything to do w/ trans either. You ARE allowed to skip over posts that you aren't interested in instead of being sarcastic. :)
Did any of you not get paid by a trans. company?

This transcription company that I might work for says if you don't maintain 98% accuracy or higher for three consecutive work days, you won't get paid for those days that you don't maintain the 98% accuracy rate.

Has that ever happened to any of you?  Do you think it's a bad situation to get involved in?

Trans Tech Definitely the Best Choice
I cannot say enough good about this company. I previously had a horrible horrible job, dealing with the most hostile and unfriendly backstabbing managerial staff. Oh well, paycheck not there, well it must be your banks fault. Total lack of respect, incompetence to name a few, and could care less if your 6 feet under. Glad I made the change. I was miserable. So happy to be at a place where your happiness counts for something. Go for it!
Doctor office trans
Probably smaller companies is what you want to look for instead of large nationals.  Have you looked in your local newspaper?  How about approaching a few docs on your own?  I've done that before and did overflow for them. 
Global Trans in Florida

I posted this on the company forum, but no one replied.  I thought maybe it was overlooked.  Does any work for or know anything about Global Transcription in Florida?  Thanks a bunch

Are you sure you're not talking about e-Trans Plus? e-Tranz

e-Tranz does not offer benefits and have no employees, all ICs. 

The owner has a habit of not paying the NEW MTs whom she hires just to get back into TAT but then does not to pay them.  I was an MT for that company, and it was an awful and terribly stressful experience, and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. When I would email her (at first) and practically plead with her to pay me, she shot back some very sadistic and unprofessional emails, sounding as if she was getting joy from what she was doing.  It was the worst experience I'd ever had with any MTSO.  She blocked my emails, and I couldn't ever reach her by phone. 

She ended up paying me eventually after 2 months had passed since that last invoice, but that was only after I informed her via a third party that I would definitely be paying her a visit in person for a little face-to-face, one-on-one "discussion" about our little problem.

Please, please don't ever work there, especially if you live paycheck to paycheck and need that money to survive each month.
