I've got issues - big complicated medical issues. Help me find a primary care doctor in Kansas City. (TMI lurks within.)

I have good insurance and need a new doctor. The problem is that I'm every physician's nightmare. Autoimmunity, depression, intractable girl-problems, hideous nightsweats - I've got 'em. These problems aren't just difficult for me, they probably drive doctors nuts, too.
Recently, my primary care doctor of more than 10 years moved her practice. Even before she'd left, she'd stopped seeing me; I always got shunted off to her nurse practitioner. I got a recommendation from an OBGYN for a new doctor, Dr. N, and am not having a good experience. Dr. N would like me to stop my depression meds, for one, and told me that getting laid more often would solve half my problems. Which might be fine advice except that sex is excrutiatingly painful, which is one of those intractable girl-problems that I'm having. Dr. N seems to think that it's just psychological, but oh man is it ever not. All of this isn't helping with the depression at all.
So, do you know of any internal medicine or general practice doctors who are up for a real challenge? Someone who won't just give up on me?
