As a Family Physicain myself, we are bound by a strict code of ethics and sense of public service that discourages us from discriminating or screening patients. However in order to provide good service, a mutual trust is requried. If either the doctor or patient did not feel a level of trust was present or had been eroded - It would be justifiable to terminate the patient physician relationship.
I hope that answers your question.
