In brief: You always can, but

Establishing a doc relationship-as with any-isnot an easy process, and there not many that impact on your health in a personal, direct, real and meaningful way as the primary care doc.
You can try to get another one, but today that's harder than most believe, esp trusted & respected one. Look at the whole picture, talk out the mis-communication, and then decide.
