Indonesia's official news agency says Suharto's daughter asked five psychics to visit her father, but they were turned away by hospital staff.
Suharto was hospitalized last week after complaining of severe headaches. Doctors say he had a mild stroke and may require three months of speech and physical therapy after he's discharged.
Suharto reportedly consulted psychics regularly during his 32-year rule.
The former leader was forced to quit last year after riots and protests against his authoritarian reign and his handling of Indonesia's worst economic crisis in a generation.
