How to discontinue services from my pain management doctor?

I'm currently considering discontinuing my pain management doctor's care, I don't feel like he listens to me when I go for my visits, I had a bad experience with an epidural injection procedure he tried to performed , I'm not happy with his services and would like to which to a female pain management doctor. Does any one know how I should go about this ? Should I stop taking my meds? Should I cancel my prescriptions? When I get a new doctor should I tell them about the last doctor?

    Do not change anything about your medications. The doctors prescribed them with a dosage for a purpose. So, you can not make any changes to that unless you have an approval from a doctor.

    How to get a new one. See if you can check with your local hospital as far as recommendations. Also, you can always ask your current doctor for recommendations. If you and this doctor are not getting along, then thats a good enough reason. That doctor should not hesitate giving you new names. But if there is something else then you need to reconsider. If you think you and this doctor are leaving on bad terms, then why.

    Whatever happens, you MUST tell the new doctor about this previous doctor and why you left them. Last thing you want is for this new doctor to read something that you havent told them. Then there is a big trust issue case happening.
