Needed: Wisconsin doctor - mine is leaving after 6 years
Hi, my anxiety doctor that I have seen for 6 years is leaving in 30 days, I got the letter yesterday. I have bad panic attacks, PTSD and take 6mg's of alprazolam/xanax a day for it.
Now she is leaving, I need a new doctor and have no clue how to go about getting one before she leaves. I would like to stay on the same regimine that I have been on, it works for me...but how do I tell that to another doctor. I have not had to doctor shop in years.
I take the medicine to calm me down and without it, I am freaked out - and now with the info that my doc is leaving has put me in a furry about how am I going to get into a doctor who will prescribe me the same medicine before the 10th of Oct, when my script is due.
I dont have a clue where to start. I never have had to see a "shrink" because everything was taken care of in her office. All my medications are under control with her and now I have to convince more doctors to see if they will take me on...Help please if any suggestions. Thanks.
