    Default My doctor died...what do I do now?

    I have been seeing a doctor for back pain and anxiety for a year now. I was just informed that he died from a heart attack. What will happen to his patients? Will I have to be re-evaluated, or can I just show the next doctor my med. bottles? Will I need to pay a whole lot of money for x-ray, mri and everything again? I have no insurance, and I don't think I can afford it! Please help!




    Also, can I just order the meds from somewhere online?

    You do have the right to your medical records and should be able to contact someone in charge of his estate or office to get them so you can just take them with you to a new doc without having to redo all the tests and such.
