Hi: try to Google "Natural Thyroid"... somewhere in there you will come across a page that lists doctors that prescribe Armour--hope this helps!!
Also, if you are on Facebook, "Friend" Mary Shomon--on her professional page, not her personal one. She has written a wonderful book on Hypothyroidism,and I think there is a list of docs who prescribe natural thyroid in the back of it.
***There are also several other pages/groups on FB on Thyroid issues.
Hope this helps,
