Share your writing pain--The Text Doctor can diagnose and heal your texts! I am a meticulous copyeditor with 27 years of providing scientific, medical, technical, and non-fiction editing services to a wide range of clients. I focus on improving the language, flow, structure, clarity, and correctness of your texts. I am Board-certified as a medical editor by BELS (Board of Editors in the Life Sciences). I use PerfectIt Pro, an add-on for MS Word that calls out errors not flagged by spellcheck, including inconsistent acronym use, random capitalization, and inconsistent numbers. This software saves me a lot of time. I am well-versed in AMA, CSE, CMS, and Gregg Reference Manual style guides. I use large dual monitors for faster fact-checking and for increased accuracy in editing at 190%+ view. I am on Windows 10 and Office 365.
