I've encountered multiple doctors who say right over the phone that they simply are taking no more new patients. I even called one once who had that on his answering machine. In these cases it wasn't that they didn't want my particular case, but rather that they were ultra-overloaded and probably wouldn't need another patient for the rest of their careers.
