Customer Question
I am a diabetic...

I am a diabetic and am a patient of an endocrinologist in Oklahoma. She neglects to answer the phone, and to refill my prescriptions in a quick manor. When I call, it rings and no one answers the phone, and I can't get them to call back despite countless voicemails. I would like to get this woman out of her office as this is unprofessional and has lead to my having to go to an emergency room just to get insulin. How would I go about this?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to an Oklahoma lawyer about this?

I have not. I don't even know how to classify the issue.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I haven't. What steps do I need to take?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
