I Hope I Don't Die Or Nothin'

My wife and I need a new doctor. Apparently, this is an extremely difficult undertaking. Here's what has happened so far:

1. I cold-called two or three listings out of the yellow pages. None of them were taking new patients.
2. The wife talked to some people at work. Asked them point-blank who their doctor was... no answer.
3. We checked the Blue Cross PPO list. We narrowed it down to a particular doctor. I called - he hasn't been with the practice "for years."

Every office I call is either not taking new patients, taking new patients only for a specific procedure (i.e. "the vein surgery" - whatever that is), the doctor no longer exists or they're booking four weeks out.

Why is this so F***ING difficult!!!???
