... six years ago. We recently moved and his new doctor which prescribed the patch suddenly had a stroke. Now we can't find a primary care doctor that will take him as a patient and prescribe it. Does anyone know what we can do? We live in Oklahoma but our insurance is also taken in southern Missouri.
First, get a copy of his medical records. Then (and you may be able to do this online) get a printout from your pharmacy that proves he has been on this medication for a long time. Find a local MD. Tell them you are new to the area and need a MD and would like to set up a visit. I would leave out his illness until you are actually at the office. Set it up as a consultation visit. Regardless of his condition, most people should consult with different doctors when they are new to an area in order to find one they are comfortable with. Once you find a doctor, and he believes the patch was and still is needed, he should write a script. He may refer you to a specialist, but he/she could at least handle the prescription part of it. I wish you and your husband well. No one should have to live with pain. If your insurance allows it, maybe set up an appointment directly with the specialist.
