Well Debbie, I’m still at it 7 years later. Been a busy girl. These days I’m still doing acute care but my niche is op reports and have I been doing them by the gazillions. Heart transplants, craniotomies, etc. I love them… There’s a certain drive, determination and persistence that goes along with doing this job. Self discipline too. Have moved from Wyoming to Tennessee (weather is better and gosh is it beautiful here, a year and a half ago) and love it!! Been working for the same company now for about 4 years….Hope all is well with you. Think of you often and am grateful for all the help you provided. I am now at the point where jobs are coming to me……..thanks to all these years.
Hello, I’m working on formatting my transcribed work (JOY) to submit to you soon. I spoke with someone today who transcribes locally. I explained my interest, asked her a few questions and she asked if I would work when she vacations!! She uses microtapes. Would I need a tape player that will accept my foot pedal? Whatever I need, I’ll get it!
Deborah, It was a pleasure to take your Medical Transcription seminar. I was thoroughly impressed with your knowledge, preparedness, professionalism, and humility. I just ordered your course materials, and I look forward to learning from an expert like you! I plan to become active in the MT field in about 2 1/2 years, when my youngest starts school, so I will have plenty of time to learn the lingo before then! I am looking forward to a lasting relationship with you and your firm.
I met a woman last night who asked me about medical transcription. I told her about your program, which I can recommend highly. She said she would be in Phoenix in a couple of weeks and would like to drop in, introduce herself, and talk to you about the program. Is it okay to give her your phone number?
I have only been in your program for about 3 weeks and I am already learning so much. I graduated from a medical transcription program in October 2009… I have a diploma that is only a piece of paper and does not do me any good. Thank you for the opportunity to learn.
Oh, FYI — I answered a radio ad and went to an informational meeting about MT job opportunities, just for curiosity’s sake. They went thru a big speil about how in demand the jobs are and how much money you could make. It was very uplifting and exciting for me. When they got down to selling you the program, it was outrageous! They were giving a “discount” for signing up that night, $100 off. You had to use a credit card and you had to sign up for at least 3 sessions worth of programs. See, they took every section you have in your program and made it into one “session”, i.e. the human body/ bones/nerves/muscles, each a section. So you could pay as you go, purchase as much as you wanted, and put it all on credit…Sounds pretty good, right? Till you hear that each session cost $500 each! Wow! I flipped. Can’t remember the name of the company but I realized that I really got a great deal with your program. So, thanks again for that!
Hi Deborah. I purchased your Transcription A-Z program about 12 years ago and have been working as a medical transcriptionist for the past 11 1/2 years. I referred my friend Debra to you and she just purchased your program on 06/28/10. She told me that you told her that if I e-mailed you about it, I would get a referral fee. Thank you!
Good Morning Deborah, I attended your seminar at Lake Junior High last night and found it very interesting and informative. I am currently attending D______ County Technical College for Medical Transcription, and am really enjoying the courses. I’m in my second semester and will have completed 14 of the 39 credits necessary for my diploma when this semester ends. I was a bit surprised about not being able to get a job as an MT, without 2 years experience. I’m very anxious to start on my new career as a Medical Transcriptionist, but am now concerned about not being able to get a job for 2 years. I plan on working for at least another 10 years, but also know that I will not be able to get by for 2 years just on my pension. You had mentioned last night about certain training that you recommend and also about doing an internship with your company. I am very interested in getting information on what would be required to get an internship with your company. Thank you for your time.
Hi Debra, I just wanted to thank you for motivating me at an informational session you had at Delaware County Community College in Pennsylvania a couple of years ago. After the informational night, I purchased your course and worked on it for a long time in between my family’s and work schedules. I decided to retire this past June after 24 years doing the same job. I was hired at our local hospital in November as a part-time employee working for 2 doctors, who have 30 in-patients who come in for evaluation. I had very little trouble transcribing because of all the resources, books, etc. that were part of your course. Thanks again.
Dear Anastasia, I really enjoyed working for Deborah’s Agency. I need to go ahead and terminate the contract at this point, as I am just working so much with the other agency that I am also with. They have just added another client to my main work source. I am frequently being offered overtime. If the little account that I do for Deborah’s came in at this point, It would be extremely tough for me to squeeze it into my schedule. Please let me know what if there is anything else I need to do. Please let me know if this is acceptable as “written notice” (per contract of Deborah’s) and it looks like if a job comes in within the next 14 days, and you don’t have a quick replacement for me, I will somehow manage to get that done (the contract says to give 14 day notice), so please just let me know if that is needed. I am so glad I took Deborah’s course, and I really am grateful for the chance to work for her for this time. Thanks so much,
