looking for a good doctor.

I had a great doctor until about 4 years ago when he stopped his practice. Since then I have been suffering with my fibro with no doctor or treatment. I am having a problem finding a doctor that believes that fibromyalgia is real and everyone is not just looking for drugs. I livebin Dickson Tennessee.

Angellynn, perhaps if you are able to get in touch with your retired pcp, perhaps then he/she will be able to recommend someone that they believe will be able to help you. It's well worth the try!! Good luck and I'll be praying for a good outcome! 🙏🏻🌻

I have tried that. He stopped his practice to do ministry work and I have been unable to connect him.

Med records are your property. Heck the hospital he was participating with. All drs have to be linked to the one or multi hospitals they refer patients too

I know wherebmy records are. But I haven't been able to find a doctor that is worth even getting them to request my records.

Find a dr you think you'd like and go in without records?

You can Google mds these days and see reviews ratings and I'd they have had lawsuits against them. It doesn't beat personal recommendations but it's a good resource.

Angellynn, was the doctor your PCP? My rheumatologist treats my fibromyalgia. You might also try a pain care specialist. They were treating me until I developed the sjogrens, so now the rheumy treats both. Good luck & blessings for a new doc soon. 🙏🌼

When I needed a new doctor I talked with people in chronic pain support groups, ERs, and people at pharmacy, I made a long list of possible doctors and called each one and asked if if could meet them, half said only if I paid which cut my list fast. The rest I went to meet and nd I and do thrilled to say I have a wonderful doctor that understands me and is still with me 😆
