Patient advocates are available Monday-Friday 8:00am - 5:00 pm Pacific time. We strive to return all messages within one business day, although responses might take a little longer during periods of high volume.  Our offices are closed on major holidays.

If you receive a voice mail greeting during business hours, we are on the other line assisting another caller.  Please leave a message, and we will return your call as quickly as possible.  The caller ID will show an 858 number, as our headquarters are in San Diego County. 

If you're having technical problems with the website please use our technical support contact form.

The GDATF relies on donations to fund its education and support programs - please consider a contribution!
