Alchemy Transcription Services is the brainchild of Marinez Burnett. As a Registered Nurse, Marinez realized that the traditional approach taken toward transcription did not match with its critical importance in patient care. This is due in large part to the fact that transcription is typically performed by people without extensive medical training and often viewed as an administrative task.

Marinez created Alchemy from a radically different standpoint; instead, Alchemy would be built as a ‘patient first’ organization and would define itself as ‘an extension of the healthcare team.’ Everything in Alchemy is centered on this philosophical approach. As a result, Marinez formed a dedicated team of Registered Nurses which perform all base level transcriptions, as well as a proprietary multi-level editing process which insures the highest possible transcription quality. Alchemy now has in place a tried and true solution to transcription and a long list of satisfied clients.

Marinez founded Alchemy in 2008 in partnership with her husband, Bob Burnett.
