I feel your pain. I once a few years ago was fired by my pain management doctor. He never liked my spine surgeon and told me at the first appointment that he works closely with spine surgeons . When he asked who mine was he said "I don't work with him" so rocky start, things got OK and then one day when i had discography with another doc, he fired me , told me he couldn't treat me anymore.
Fortunately my spine surgeon found me a new pain management doctor right away.
But i did have a few weeks of panic wondering if i would have to endure pain without medication for a while.

Good luck to you in finding a new doctor
