Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you are out of state, then you can submit the change of doctor request, the new doctor would act just as the current doctor is acting, no restrictions on them, you are entitled to proper treatment. So, if you are not getting proper treatment from the current doctor, then submitting the change of doctor form is the proper thing to do and move onto the new doctor to get your proper care.
