How do you obtain control of a YouTube channel if you don't have access to the original login info?

I work for an agency that represents a medical practice who had a YouTube account set up a long time ago.  No one knows the login info to access the account, but we want to start adding new videos to the channel.  What's the appropriate course of gaining ownership of the YouTube channel?  We have numerous locations claimed and Google Search Console/Analytics code reporting on site activity, so there shouldn't be any doubt that we're the correct representatives of the practice. 


What's the next step?  How do we initiated the change of ownership?
