Where are you located?

Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 10 months ago.
Stephen,

I am in the Midwest of the USA.
Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 10 months ago.
Just in case you were wondering, I do not see patients from this website in my private office due to contractual obligations.

Are you wanting to find a MD in a specific area of the USA? If so, will you have your medical records available?

Or were you looking to refill your Rx with an online consultation?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Sorry Dr. Rick I lost all the info I had typed on the computer and was frustrated so just left it. As you probably realized I'm computer illiterate.live in Longview Wa. & would see a Dr. with my records if that would help. I am insured with Kaiser and getting nowhere with my Dr. I could change to a different provider but this takes time. I am worried about my safety as I have had open heart surgery and have an irregular


heart beat. My heart specialist says no stress but without these meds thats impossible. I will be running out of these pills soon. What I need to know is if I can't find someone here what about Victoria


BC or even Portualgo as I understand they have legalized all drugs. Again sorry for missing your timing and will wait until your able to respond. THANKS

Stephen,

Morphine will be very difficult to find without a Rx even outside of the USA.

You should consult with a pain management specialist. They will be the doctor with the most experience with prescribing morphine and will best able to assist you.

I am sure that there is one near you.

Does this make sense?

I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. You may also receive an email survey after our chat, if you can please give me a “10” rating in all areas. It has been a pleasure to assist you today.

Dr. Rick, would be happy to give you an A+ in all areas . Would like to know how to reach you again as I have many questions and could possibly answer some for you. Portugal interests me. What about Drs. there? Being legal there where could I find info about my problem getting a prescription and getting it legally here to the good ole USA? Probably a question you haven't much knowledge about but PLEASE think out of the box as I'm seriously concerned about my health. thanks for your knowledge!

Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 10 months ago.
Stephen,
