You may have a claim. You'll want to get together the medical records then give me a call and I can give you the names of some attorneys to speak with. Ask for the records to be "electronic" records, on a CD rom--way cheaper than paper.

Contact the insurance commissioner. You can't force the doctor to see you. It's on you to resolve it. Insurance company is correct except that you have probably signed a paper with the doctor that says that you are ultimately responsible to pay.

Find out from the insurance what piece of magic paper they need. Ask the doctors office to give that.
