Dear Deborah: Here are the kudos I received this week! I also got a call from the Boss today and he said in appreciation of the good work, I am getting a $100.00 bonus with my next paycheck! I am so happy!
Hi Julie, I think you are asking good questions. I have only been an MT since last August. My girlfriend and I attended Deborah’s class at Pima Community College in Tucson as she was interested in working from home. To shorten the story, we both decided to take the course. I completed it in eight months, but it was a very diligent effort as there was a lot to learn. However, Deborah’s course is arranged very well, she and her staff offer all the support you will need, and you will learn all you need to know. Additionally, there is much information online. I have a whole list of disease and drug websites bookmarked to check spelling, etc. I was a CPA until my children were on their own at which time I decided to get out of the corporate rat race and do something else. Finances for me were not an issue and, since I did not have to work, I could concentrate on the MT work (it was definitely intense). I had no medical background (I have a graduate degree in applied economics), but I did not find that a detriment as the course work was pretty complete. …
Dear Deborah, Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into the A-Z course; it really shows! I really appreciate not only the thoroughness of the course, but also the fact that I could always call or email with my questions and get helpful answers. You were always so encouraging! I feel well-prepared to take on a medical transcription job after completing this course.
Today, I accidentally came across your web site while searching through the Internet for medical terms I do not understand. I wished I had came across your web site earlier before I enrolled into another MT school. Three more lessons, I will be finished with my MT course. I still have not much confidence when transcribing the “operative report”. I am very impressed by your supportive commitments. I do wish I have enrolled with your service when choosing an institute that offer training as well as support when required. I know I need more practices before I have the full confidence to do a good job and it is hard to get a place that offers training. Thank you for your time and attention to the matter.
Deborah: I am not sure if you remember me or not – I am Lisa H. I took your course about 15 years ago and worked for you too. You also helped me land an incredibly good job at Southwest College of Naturopathic Physicians. I have been thinking about doing some transcription again after a long hiatus. I have been a stay at home mom, enjoying traveling with my husband, etc. Two daughters in college and two weddings later (!) I am ready to transcribe again. I was wondering if you have any contacts in the Dallas area or any suggestions as to which route to go. I understand that around here they use a lot of agencies and it is really difficult to work for yourself. I have always trusted your opinion and am excited to see that you are still at it! Thanks in advance. Hope all is well with you and your family!
Debra, I really enjoyed your workshop. There was a lot of information in a very short time. I do have a question. I work full time as a librarian and was looking toward being a part time MT in retirement but I have a problem. I have been working on the Career Step course for over a year. I am finding that I am going to be paying for a lot of extensions ($100 for each six months) because I just don’t have the time and I am rather burnt out at this point. I am thinking of quitting. When you quit with Career Step, you have to start all over again, which I would not do. With the outlay of cash that I have spent on this course, I can say that it has helped me with medical reference at the library. I just can’t say that I want to continue paying extensions if the course is not going to result in a job. What do you think of Career Step? I wish I had known about your program.
Hello Deborah. Hope you remember me. I took your course approximately 14 years ago, have referred many people your way, and attended several of your seminars. Still typing away… I am writing to ask if you know any transcriptionists in the East Valley who may need some extra work. I am in need of some help and if you have any names you could pass my way they would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help.
Hey, I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for me and for your patience with my proofing. I also wanted to tell you that I am starting a job with Globespan on Monday. I have had three companies contact me for employment and this is the one that I accepted. Once again, thank you.
