I have an outstanding balance with my doctor; can he refuse to see me until income information for a repayment plan is provided? 

Question Details:

I have an outstanding balance with my doctor and want to work out a payment plan but unless I provide information about my income he is not willing to work with me. He sent me a letter stating I had 30 days to pay the balance in full or he would no longer see me. Ten days later I received another letter from him stating that because he hadn't received payment yet I could not schedule any further appointments and that this had be sent to collections. What are my rights?
