While your Doctor may have compassion for the patient and may want to continue to treat any and all problems that arise it is not a good idea. The Doctor is taking a risk, both Professional and Financial, encouraging a non-paying patient to continue the Doctor-patient relationship. If some goes "wrong" and the patient believes they have been harmed, there will be a lawsuit. If the Doctor continues to treat on a no-pay basis then there is no justified reason why all other potential patients without insurance can not be treated by him as well (perhaps another lawsuit). And finally, since there are expenses to be paid and this is a business, it should be ran as such.
