i am a Cymed employee and love it. they treat the employees like people.
Cymed has LOW pay...do NOT pay for sm
spaces.  The only good office, I think, was the Greensboro office, but they are now with the Hudson OH office.
I, on the other hand, do not like them. They would never give me another account when I worked for them and I would run out of work always. I would never go back and work for them. Transcend is much better.
worked for them just quit. they promise you everything you get nothing.

managers think this is your only priority. i do now have my life back.


Does anyone know anything about Cymed transcription service?


Gracie Allen


run run run and dont look back. i work for them now and am looking for a new job. lies, lies and more lies when asked about why we run out of work.
Anyone working for Cymed that can tell me pros, cons, how many accounts they typically assign you, workload consistency, dictator quality, $$ potential, platform info, etc.  Just tested w/ them and want to make sure I am getting into something positive here. Any info appreciated!!

cymed and p.r.n
cymed has been on the board a lot recently. check back for about the last 14 days. not great reviews. good luck.
Any comments on Cymed?  I've just been offered a job there but want to be sure before I quit my other job.
D&L Typing Service is great and looking for MTs :)
Cymed or Transolutions?
Which would you rather work for and why?  Appreciate both positive and negative feedback. Thanks.
Now, who is working for CyMed?

......... in Ohio?  If you are, are you happy with the way that the jobs have been "dealt-out" to guess where lately? 

When you get one job for one doctor, then have in your same queque one job from another doctor, then another job from another doctor, and they are almost under 1 minute in length, where else are they going to but overseas??  Yes, they do hire a good bit of U.S. transcriptionists, but I think we are being treated "substandardly" as far as jobs that we get, compared to those typing overseas for them.  They really get the "cream of the crop," and also a lot of cherrypicking goes on with this company also.  Seems some people just LOVE to look down their queque list, and send all those under 1 minute back, and I seem to be getting ALL of them!!  I have approached them about it, and just got told that they NEVER allow cherrpicking, but guess what, THAT IS JUST NOT SO!!!


Is CyMed good/If not who is????
I have worked in transcription at home for over 8 years but for local practices.  I am new to the national companies.  I recently looked at the Cymed web site.  Is this a good company?  If not can someone please tell me where to start looking.
Anyone ever heard of CyMed?
Wondering if it is a good company?


Well, thank you!  You just answered a question I asked Cymed.....and they never answered! 

promises abound, but work rarely available in my experience was with them for 6+ months
They are "eliminating" positions apparently to start their transfer offshore. Not a good company to work for by any means!!!
I know people who went to work for Cymed.....
The ones who say they are happy are the ones that don't really need a good pay check (older ladies who basically work for the insurance and a little extra cash). The others say that they can definitely tell a big difference with them not paying for spaces. They all say the people are nice though and offer good bonuses for extra work on the weekend at times. I've also heard that there are a lot of ESL doctors. I tested and was offered 9.5 cents with them, but everyone else I've heard says they were offered 8 to 8.5 cpl????
CyMed -anbody work for them
Does anyone work for Cymed - How is it?
Has anyone works for Cymed by any chance. What do you think of them.
Updated info on CyMed?

Hi -

First time ever on this board and I've been an MT for 15 years.  Worked for Healthscribe before Spheris took over (3 years) and now work for another company...but looking elsewhere.  Can anyone give me their honest opinions about CyMed?  I just tested with them, extremely easy to me, but I HATE changing job.  However, job I have now....isn't paying the bills at all, waiting for work constantly, they are going to start off-shoring, etc.  I'm single, have 1 child, lost a great job last year working by the hour (outside of home), but lost the job (don't even ask). I loved it, but got screwed. Now I'm just depressed, disgusted, broke, etc., and very stressed and worried. I'm going to have to get out of transcription or something.  This just isn't working and I seriously would appreciate any good or bad.   I talked to a man there for over an hour yesterday.  He was extremely patient and took his time explaining everything I asked. 

Thanks in advance everyone!   

Have you tried All-Type? or CyMed? Or Spheris? sm

It seems Spheris always has an ad running, and Cymed has been recruiting pretty heavily, too, along with Transcend.  I have no idea if they are good places to work, and no doubt the pay is not so hot, or they would not have to advertise so much, but it might get you through the lean times until something better comes along.

I have over 30 years of experience as an MT, and received responses from only about 1/2 of the companies.  I think they do get inundated with resumes/applications, and it does take awhile to sift through everything. 

I love the company I am with, but the work has dried up over the last month or so, and I decided to get a second job so I wouldn't be homeless.  I'm my sole support, so I get pretty nervous when no income is coming in.   I am supposed to start with All-Type next week.  They seem like a good company, but then again, I suppose they all do at the start.  

Good luck!  

Cymed uses ChartNet and it is a great software
system. Lots of things to make transcription easier for
Try http://www.onelook.com/
This is the one I use. It gives the Brand names on the top- and generic on the bottom. Also, you can use the wild card(*) and it gives drugs that are similar in spelling, so you don't have to know the exact spelling. Also,you can look up typical dosages of that drug, so you can double-check if you have the right ones.

And you can get updates on line from info given on the cover of the book upon receipt!

I have used this for over a year and find it very reliable and affordable.  You can send and receive.
I certainly wouldn't let them be privy to that much info about me and neither should you.  You can do something about it.
this is insane.  when you see who is running this - the person whose claim to fame is actually making the medical transcription business what it is today, boasting over 400,000 MTs. 

now she is trying to what, cut that workforce down by maybe more than half. 

this is an extremely aggressive push for mobile healthcare and point-of service care, which from what I see completely eliminates the need for people at all, period. 

does anyone know, please, is there a future for us in this picture.  is there anyone working with these people to help preserve our jobs in some form at least? 

where do we write, who do we talk to?  this person also used to run the AAMT, and now has jumped ship for the opportunity to make probably millions for front-running this technology.  does she even consider the 400,000 MTs (in this country alone) losing their livelihood.  does she care?
