A: Unfortunately, this is not likely to be a case that a med mal attorney would handle. Med mal cases are costly to prosecute and they generally involve a scale of injury/damages that offsets the effort in litigating them. You could look into contacting Georgia attorneys who handle medical claim disputes, or who handle contract disputes (and who have adequate insight into medical/dental issues). Small claims could be another option. But if you are able to find resolution of the matter through working with the office, that could be the most practical solution. Good luck
