Hello from JustAnswer.

We are unable to make a referral for a specific doctor or a specific drug.

We can provide information to answer specific questions, including doctors that may be able to provide care, but it would not be considered a referral and you would need to contact them directly. If it is a practice that requires a referral for a patient to be seen, we are unable to provide that referral and you would need to obtain that referral from your primary care physician.

I have not heard back, so you may be needing assistance beyond what can be provided over the internet.

It would require a personal visit with a doctor to obtain a prescription for Ascomp with codeine. If your regular doctor is unwilling to prescribe the drug, then it would usually be necessary to be seen by a Pain Management specialist, or if it is being used for headaches (the most common reason for the use of this drug), a Headache specialist.
