Wrong for docs to not take patients

I have heard that medical care in the Northwest has been good, but there is a group that refuses to accept the Medicare Insurance holders, and I couldn’t believe my ears to hear that. When I asked the receptionist “Why?” the answer was, “You ask the doctors!”

This is the USA, the Medicare Insurance holders are the American taxpayers, too. Why should these doctors who refuse to take care of the Medicare holders be allowed to so openly practice in the Northwest? I think these doctors’ way of thinking is ethically wrong: The medicine should be for all.
