Can Alzheimers be diagnosed to deny tests?

A fellow caregiver asked...

I was told without any test but a doctor's impression that I have Alzheimer's to deny any investigation into any other possible causes. How do I state my case for disagreeing when that label cuts me off from any further diagnosis and treatment?
