I have to make an story and i'm stuck in a part,
one of the characters call to a hospital to find out if
one of his friends is there. When the receptionist
pick up the phone he's supposed to ask if his friend is there.
But i really don't know what's the best way.

"I'd like to know if someone with the name ???

any advice would be appreciated.
