I will try and help, but you probably will not like this answer. Please don't shoot the messenger.
A doctor has absolute discretion to set up their practice any way they want and can discriminate against anyone they want, legally prohibited discrimination excepted (so long as it does not violate contracts with any insurance providers they contract with). They can refuse to have you as a patient if you root for the Atlanta Falcons. They can refuse to have you as a patient if you wear suspenders. And they can refuse to have you as a patient if you take certain medications. This is discrimination (discrimination simply means to choose) but the important thing is that it is not illegal discrimination. In NC, a patient has the right to medical and nursing services without discrimination based upon race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin or source of payment. Anything else is fair game.
I hope this helps.
