About the Company

I am an MD, board certified in 2001 in Emergency Medicine. I currently work on digitized medical image analysis and transmission, at Medpix, where I am a founder. I have had 3 start-ups, experience with business planning, medical writing, fiction, essays, blogs, and applications. I enjoy writing, and need some part-time work as my start-up is pre-revenue.

My partners are technology and business experts, with advanced degrees and years of experience in IT, web development, business strategy and planning, SEO, and just about everything else in technology, as both are also engineers.

I have a clinical psychologist (Ph.D) on my team, and a graduate of the Maxwell School of International Studies, with a double masters in International Relations and Public Policy.She also speaks Mandarin and Italian.

We are ready to meet your needs.

Payment Terms
For all non-escrow projects under $300 an 80% payment is required up-front.

For all projects over $300 a non-refundable 35% deposit is required up-front before I start working.

For escrow projects, once funds have been released for the deposit and funds have been escrowed for the next milestone work begins, and work will be delivered for subsequent milestones when the previous milestone has been paid for and the subsequent one has been funded.

For non-escrow projects, work will not be delivered for a milestone unless the previous milestone has been paid for.

We have a satisfaction guarantee, and will gladly make changes until you are 100% satisfied with the end result. If you are not satisfied and cannot provide detailed feedback on what changes would make you satisfied with the work, we require 80% payment of the full project price and shared copyright of the document in order to be properly compensated for our time.

For any buyers that abandon the project without paying, we reserve the right to sell the work and/or send your account to a collection agency as well as file a suit in civil court if you are in the US.

For local buyers requiring an in-person consult or for travel to meetings, that will be billed separately at a pre-negotiated rate.

APPROXIMATE RATES (may vary depending on the complexity of the project):

Writing ranges from $0.25 to $1.25 per word
Editing ranges from $0.05 to $0.25 per word
Proofreading ranges from $0.01 to $0.05 per word

Add on 8.75% to the project total for Elance fees.
