Can anyone provide a recommendation(s) for a primary care doctor(s) in NYC or the Jersey City/Hoboken area who is knowledgeable about using Metformin to help with weight gain associated with antipsychotics use?

I have gained 20-25 pounds while using Seroquel, and I have tried exercise and diet with no results. My psychiatrist told me to ask my primary care doctor about Metformin if that is something that I want to try. However, I do not have a primary care doctor. I tried going to a random doctor on my insurance, and he didn't know anything about the subject. I'd like to find someone who has read research about antipsychotics and Metformin's effect on their weight gain side effects.

Please feel free to ask me any questions or send information to
