    How can I find new Doc?....I have diagnosed FMS with much pain & fatigue. My current MD doesn't believe in narcotics or disability, even though I haven't worked for 2 mths (RN). I am beginning to wonder if she doccuments everything I tell her since she doesn't have to write anything up. I live near Sacramento which is HMO city; how can you interview for new Doc if you can't talk to them; those answering the phone don't have the answers to your questions. Do you have to make an appt. with each and every one at you r own expense?; the HMO has to agree to a switch before you can change MD. And I may need to stay with current MD for other problems. I have seen several MD specialists thru my insurance and referred by my PCP; they do not resume care for you, only diagnose and tell you you're PCP is in charge of your care. Anyone gone thru these same problems and have any advice? Anyone from Sacramento area?
