Wisconsin...good, compassionate doctor needed. Any suggestions?

Hi, How can I find a good chronic pain Doctor who will keep prescribing me my medicines that I am on. My doctor is leaving after 6 years and I am on a "good, working medication schedule" after many years of trying other things. We have found what works but now I need to find a new doctor who will prescribe me the same medications (narcotics & anxiety medications) within 30 days. I didnt get much notice so I need to move quick. I hate to go and see "20" (so to say) doctors for them to tell me that they cant prescribe them to me.
I live in Wisconsin & most doctors seem to be scared to prescribe narcotics even though I have been on them for years.
Shopping for a new doctor seems impossible in less then 30 days. How do I find a good one who will help me and keep me on the regimine that I have been on for 6 years?
Thank you.

I am used to just one doctor ( my main one) to help with all my medications.

I live in Wisconsin and see a wonderful PM group in Green Bay.

Where do you live in Wisconsin?

What is your diagnosis, history of surgeries, physical therapy, etc?

L5/S1 Hemilaminectomy (9/06)
L4/L5 Hemilaminectomy (11/06)
L4/5 L5/S1 Posterior Interbody Lumbar Fusion with Instrumentation (1/07)

Hi Jaime,
it also helps if you let people know what your diagnosis is and what all has been tried before for your pain. There are many kinds of doctors doing PM these days and every bit of info helps.

HTH, Fabby
