I transcribed medical reports, and soon became known as one of the "heavy hitters!" I thought I had to work full speed all the time. My hands still feel the pain, too. I really became familiar with more ESL doctors and learned more medical terminology on this job. Management stressed continual development, and provided training. I really liked some of my supervisors, and talked to them on the phone from time to time. My co-workers lived all over the US. Sometimes we shared e-mails, but not often.
I had met some of the management team, and was very impressed with their professionalism and pride in their job as well as their interest in us. One thing I remember is the large Midwestern hospital which was a favorite of mine for 5 years. The best thing was I got to transcribe their Operative reports. The hardest part was that I had to have surgery, and when I returned, I no longer got to type very much for that client, and the reports I received paid me far less, so I was forced to find other employment.
