Yes in private offic: A patient with disruptive behavior, a bad history with a particular doctor or who is known to be a drug seeker, can be refused treatment. There are some constraints in ers and community clinics mostly requiring evaluation for stability. Some also require insurance or cash payment as a precondition.
