Paulette Binion, a medical practice manager for 10 years with over 28+ years of transcription experience, saw a growing need in her local community for a professional medical transcription company.
Through word-of-mouth endorsements by satisfied customers, the business quickly expanded and now encompasses clients in multiple states and numerous specialties. Paulette's two-fold goal for The Binion Group was to advance health data documentation for doctors/clinicians, as well as provide career opportunities with flexible hours for college students and parents wishing to work from home.
As the healthcare industry moves closer to electronic medical records, The Binion Group is poised to assist doctors in their efforts to make the transition from handwritten or paper charts.

She enjoyed the challenges and fast pace of the job, but after their second child was born, found the time away from home wasn’t worth it.
"I took a job at a local bank for a couple of years until I was finally able to become a stay at home mother, which is the best job EVER!! That is why I LOVE working for The Binion Group. I get to enjoy the challenges that medical transcription offers without the sacrifice of time away from my family!"
