Default Insurance Issues

We are looking to try to find a PM&R closer to home. We are also looking to change doctors because the person we are currently seeing is booked for appointments 6-9 months out. That would be fine when we are in a monitoring stage but when the clinic messes up and doesn't get her appointment scheduled when it was supposed to happen we will now be a year out from our last visit. The problem is that in doing research to find someone closer to home we have found the three PM&R physicians closest to home DO NOT work with children. The only one we can find in the state that works with kids is out of network. Our physical therapist says that after talking to other PTs in the state that work with children that this is the person that we need to see. Does anybody know-are we out of luck because there are doctors in network (either at the office out of state that we presently go to or the ones that don't work with children)? Any advice anyone has would be appreciated.
