Is a referral better than a cold call? How do they work?

My insurance doesn't require referrals to specialists. I've never seen a specialist for a specific problem that wasn't initiated and referred by my doctor. If I want/need to see a specialist for something, does it make sense to see my doctor first and ask for a referral, or find a (random) specialist myself?

Should I find a new doctor, and if so, must I start from scratch? My long-time rheumatologist has moved out of state and I have an appointment this week to see her successor. I have "iffy" feelings about him based on one phone conversation. Long backstory inside. I know YANMD, but I'd appreciate opinions from both medical professionals and consumers. [more inside]
