That depends on what med, how much you take, and how long you've been taking it (or meds like it).
People do change doctors from time to time; sometimes at the patient's behest, and sometimes at the doctor's. In cases of the latter, I don't know if there are any "rules" or "laws". Emergency treatment may not be denied, but if notice is given, I don't know that it would qualify as an "emergency". In many cases I've heard of, patients were given 30 days (1 refill) notice in which to find a new doctor. You didn't mention if this all happened suddenly within the past few days, or whether it happened a month ago. That could be what this letter is all about - I don't know.
