Medical Transcriptionist Advice

Q: What is it like working as a Medical Transcriptionist?

Medical Transcriptionist in Anderson:
"Being able to sit 8 hours a day."
Know your vocabulary, be very conscientious about grammar, learn to be a 'foreign correspondent' and become familiar with a variety of accents and English as second or third language physicians.

Medical Transcriptionist in Utica:
"It is a good job but can be a bit boring, a lot of sitting."
This is a great career however it does not require getting out of your seat much so I would advise, for those who do not want to sit constantly, flex hours or work at home, where you have the option to work as many hours per day as you feel comfortable as long as you do put your time in for the week, providing the work load permits.

Medical Transcriptionist in Portland:
Seek a different field of study and/or other employment.

Medical Transcriptionist in Elizabeth City:
"Cheap company with cruddy practices."
Pros: Working at home.
Cons: They make you think that you can earn a whole lot of money with incentive, but the scores are skewed and everything I produce goes to India for review. Nuance has cheated me out of several dollars and continues to take money out of my pocket with their business practices (first in and first out that they advertise is untrue). When I complain to management, they throw a pacifier in my mouth and nothing changes (unfair QC, cherry picking, etc.)

Medical Transcriptionist in Rochester:
"Do not become a medical transcriptionist."

Medical Transcriptionist in Sonora:
Go to school as long as you can.

Medical Transcriptionist in Kearney:
"LOVE my job!"
Pros: I get to work at home.
Cons: Pay rate.
