need anti-sick things

I got my tax return and, as long as no other catastrophe happens soon, I should be able to afford a few doctor visits and the like to try and get something done for myself.  It's been a while since my previous miserable failures at getting treated, and I'm not getting any better on my own even with the work I've done to take better care of myself, so I'll give it another go.

If you never had any proper experience with or knowledge of the medical system, never had a primary care physician, had no insurance and a fairly tight budget, where would you go?  How would you go about finding a good doctor in your area, and how would you go about picking one from whatever selection you have?  Also, what are the appropriate measures for getting your medical records and such?

The endocrinologist I contacted said I need to see my primary care physician before I can see him, but I've never had one.  One of the major problems I face is that a lot of doctors in this area simply do not take Lyme disease or claims of chronic pain and such seriously.  I may need to go through doctors until I find one that will actually help me, but I don't want to end up paying a lot of bills to useless doctors.  That doesn't mean I shouldn't see them, though, if there's a chance they can help me, and I'll just need to figure out what I can do to keep from getting screwed over.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.. I really have no idea what I'm doing, and need the experience of those who do.
