Elizabeth Frick, PhD, ELS
Share your writing pain–The Text Doctor can diagnose and heal your texts! I am a meticulous copyeditor with 30+ 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, AP, and the Gregg Reference Manual style guide. 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.

You want your document to be clear and correct. You know that errors could make your reader doubt your credibility. But you don’t know all the intricacies of the English language, and you feel nervous about making small or large mistakes in your text. Add to that: By the time you’ve revised your document 20 or 30 or 50 times, you aren’t looking for mistakes; you’re driving to closure and don’t want to find your mistakes. I can help you as I have helped other medical, scientific, technical, and nonfiction authors. As a student of the English language all my life, I will bring my 30 years’ experience in medical, scientific, technical, and nonfiction copy editing to your project.
