Title says it all... Does any happen to personally know any healthcare advocates (knowledge of dialysis issues a plus but not necessary) while I am quite adept at addressing many issues and have acted as an advocate for myself and others I have encountered an issue that has far exceeded my ability to address and I fear for the health and safety or a fellow patient. Normal ways of addressing issues have not only been ineffective but seem to have drawn harsh retaliation. Anti-retaliation protections have failed and no legal advocate seems interested enough to touch it. I am asking for personal references because it seems this medical professional seems well connected and protected. Thx

Contact CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services). They are charged with inforcing standards and protecting patients.  They have the power to effectively shut down medical providers.
