It is rare to "fire" a patient, but sometimes there are roadblocks that prevent a doctor from providing good care to a patient. Laws in each state vary--in my state a doctor must: 1) give 30 days' notice, 2) provide emergency care during that time, and 3) offer to transfer a copy of the medical chart to another doctor at no charge.

In brief: Ask your doc
If you don't know why that happened.
Common reasons include poor compliance with recommended treatment, deception, routinely missing appointments, abusive behavior and drug seeking behavior.

In brief: Bad fit
Feeling poorly or stressed doesn't give anyone the right to be rude or abusive to their physician.
On the other hand the physician might be a complete ass. Who knows? If you completely ignore the md's advice then the relationship should be severed. If you don't feel the advice is sound, go elsewhere.
