I said fine,I will go get them...then all of a sudden the hosp returned the lawyers calls....I think im not getting a lot of money outta this so their dragging feet........am i right? Thanks for any advice you can give!

Since your lawyer doesn't get paid until you do, and is spending his or her own money to cover the costs associated with your case, which he or she will also not get back until the case settles, it is unlikely that they are purposefully "dragging feet" on your case. Just because you want your money now doesn't mean the insurance company will suddenly see the light and pay a fair settlement. In fact, if you signal your over-eagerness to them, they may well seek to exploit your impatience, dig in their heels, and low ball you.

Give your attorney the benefit of the doubt in that you initially selected them. Call and ask for an appointment and have a heart-to-heart discussion. Getting medical records can be a challenge at times with many providers "outsourcing" this function.
