A shot in the dark...

My wife was diagnosed with lymphoma about two months ago. The hematologist then requested a biopsy at Johns Hopkins so that therapy could commence. Since then, his office and the Hopkins biopsy service (which seldom answers the phone and can't be found on a map of the hospital) have repeatedly claimed that the other hasn't provided the proper paperwork. Two days ago, the Hopkins biopsy service said they were satisfied and we would "get a call tomorrow." Today the same person said yet again that the doctor had not done the requisition properly. The two offices say they will again send faxes on Monday. It's as though the American medical industry were designed by Kafka.
I know it's unlikely but does anyone have relevant information or insight that might help us get past the medical bureaucracy and get the biopsy?
