Doctor's offices are operated as a business and there is no requirement they schedule an appointment for an existing patient. If that patient has an outstanding balance, the doctor is likely wary of doing work for which they will not be paid. Open communication with a doctor's office about the situation, what the needs are, and any financial issues, before a problem arises, is the best chance in working with them to get the help you need.
