Dr won't give Rx for lab tests or Warfarin Rx

I've taken Warfarin since 1998. I was 48 when I had a blood clot in my eye. My Rheumatologist managed therapy but he RETIRED in August. Replacement Dr in same office won't manage PT/INR labs, and won't say why. Primary Care Dr. won't manage this either. Coumadin Clinic at hospital won't manage take this on because I travel between two residences (Maine and CT) Said I have to be in Maine every month unless I can get an Rx to carry with me. BUT, I have NO DR to write script. My retired rheumatologist said Xaralto nor pradaxis are suitable for me to take. He said I need to stay on Warfarin. I trusted him with my life and now I have been left adrift. What can I do?
