Well you are in a spot but it also sounds like this guy has a very big ego in my opinion. I think its great when a PCP can manage all medications, but you have other health issues that require you to see specialists. Would your specialists, say the kidney dr want him rxing your meds? What about the pain dr, would he? Or does this new guy plan to take you off of all pain meds. I would have to be leery somewhat, I would certainly want to know in advance what meds he intends on keeping me on. I too have the extensive lists of daily meds, but I have numerous health problems that requires these medications. I too have batted high BP since I was 28.
You may consider staying with him long enough to see what his intentions are in the medication area. Sorry, I do not feel I have helped you. Good luck.
