    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems (More than a year)

    Pros

    I'm now in physician assistant school. Working as a medical scribe exposed me to a lot more than most of my classmates who were cnas or phlebotomist prior to PA school.
    Working with many different docs helps you develop good documentation skills and get multiple perspectives on patient care.

    Cons

    The job just doesn't pay enough

    Advice to Management

    Have someone besides just another scribe actually be involved in the direction of the individual sites.

    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Scribes are useful to physicians, pre-med students gain valuable experience and knowledge in the medical field

    Cons

    Upper management totally disconnected from business, Opinions were terminable offenses, Hires were based on friendships instead of skill at the top level, Recruiting was totally absent in a company based solely on its ability to staff medical scribes, No employee appreciation at any level, Money hungry execs never said no to new business at the expense of everything else, Incompetent people were let off the hook as the hard workers absorbed more and more, Scribes at all sites were left on an island without oversight by their corporate managers

    Advice to Management

    Too late now... the company already folded as unsustainable growth led to inevitable implosion

    Pros

    You get to work closely with a lot of providers including both MD's and PA's and can get great letters of recommendations from them.

    Cons

    The pay was minimum wage and the hours were not great.

    Advice to Management

    Pay scribes more. Most of us are students and would like higher salaries to pay for tuition and living expenses.

    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems part-time

    Pros

    -Great learning experiences with doctors.
    -Friendships that will last a lifetime.
    -Experiences in a hospital environment that will be very helpful gaining future employment.

    Cons

    -Offsite management actively increased bureaucratic red tape leading scribes to actively avoid leadership positions. Suggestions for improvement are met with opposition, drama, and underhanded threats.
    -Low pay, but doctors paid over TWICE as much to the scribe intermediary company. Unacceptable.
    -Offsite management had no problem throwing scribes "under-the-bus" to suit their own needs.

    Advice to Management

    Really glad Scribe America came in. Though I know nothing about this company, I hope they have a very different philosophy on scribing and compensation if they are to be successful. Sending out good vibes to the company and current scribes.

    Pros

    I got to scribe for some of the greatest doctors i have ever met. You will truly learn professionalism from the doctors they put you with.

    Cons

    The company was going through a lot of transition at the time that I was employed so there were lots of delays. But the new lead scribes did a great job to sort things out.

    Flexible schedule once you have been scribing for a while.

    Traveling scribes make more.
