Never had this happen before. Don't know what 2 do. I didn't know anything was wrong or he was in trouble. Called this am 2 make monthly appt. phone disconnected, office is cleared out. Went online 2 see if maybe he moved, died,whatever then saw article from local paper where he had his licence suspended on the 30th of March !! He has all my records from the last 14 yrs., knew not only medical but personal things in my life (which helped him understand my situation better) Was my Dad's doctor also before he died. He had no partners, never mentioned other doc's, no receptionist. Paper says patients was 2 get a registered letter telling us. I didn't. What am I supposed 2 do? I'm older,on disability, have chronic pain, sleep & depression problems,on medicare, have no med. records now, out of my meds... Didn't know his other patients so have no one to call. Looked for help on every website I knew but found nothing. I also know w/out my meds besides the pain & other problems hitting me so will w/d... that'll do me in !! Does anyone know how I go about finding another doc other than calling all them? I know a lot of his other pat.have 2 confused also. I live in the Newport News, Hampton, Yorktown area of Virginia..maybe a pat of his is also on here looking. TIA 4 any help or advice... I'm so very scared & worried if any doc. would take me esp since I was a pat of my doc that got into trouble? Thanks
Help please Doc of 14 yrs licence suspended. He's gone, office cleared, no clue he was doing wrong!?

In 2004 was in a bad car wreck that messed up my back, leg & face. In 2012 fell down a flight of stairs & got hurt so bad was in trauma unit 4 a week then 2 room then home. The ER kept saying I was confused & had 2 have either been in a car wreck or beat up. Thank goodness my roomie was there 2 witness...It's a long list of my injuries....so many that ppl @ the hospital were scared 2 touch me since I didn't have anywhere on my body that didn't have an injury.. Maybe my disability records, the hospital records maybe pharmacy will show that this is on going & til I die also what I take..about 7-8 meds..ugh !!!
The first thing I would do is go to the ER immediately before you run out of your medications and explain everything you just said on here. I guarantee they are already aware of what happened to your doctor tho, news like that travels fast. They should be able to give you a month supply of what you were being prescribed and refer you to another doctor in your area. Also, when this happens to a doctor someone has to become his custodian of records and that's how you will be able to get a copy of your records or where your next doctor will send a copy service to go and get a copy of your entire file. If this is really new, your file is probably one of many that is being gone through with a fine tooth comb to see if this doctor is going to lose his license for any wrong doing. This happened to a doctor where I live. He was very well known before he was ever in any trouble as the "dr feelgood" in our town, which was really unfair to all of the patients that had been seeing him legitimately for years before he started handing out pain pills like candy to people who didn't really need it. Anyway, I hope this helps get you moving in the right direction and that you find a new doctor ASAP. Good luck.
