Video captures Florida doctor screaming at patient

Video captures Florida doctor screaming at patient

The patient's daughter recorded the scene as her mother was yelled at and kicked out of the medical clinic by the doctor who became angry when she complained about the long wait to be seen.

In her Facebook post, Stipe wrote that she was "severely sick" after which she came to the Gainesville After Hours Clinic with a 6:30 p.m. EDT appointment.

"Ms. Stipe had been increasingly belligerent and abusive to the office staff, cursing them and threatening them with violence, because she was unwell and had been waiting to be seen by me for more than an hour", Gallogly wrote.

When Stipe said she just wanted to go to bed, the doctor pointed towards the door.

Gallogly also said the video is heavily edited and taken out of context.

Stipe then told CBS4 that the doctor's statements are "absolutely not true". "By 7:45 was not seen still in severe pain and throwing up in the trash can All they had me do was pee in a cup to see if I'm pregnant....ummm I know I'm not...", she wrote on her page. She asked for her $80 copayment back.

Stipe's video has been viewed over 200,000 times and has more than 3,000 shares.

Instantly, the doctor said: "Are you kidding me? Gallogly responds." Do you know how many people. It's 7:45 and we've already been working on you.

Gallogly said the situation continued even after Stipe received her refund, however she still would not leave, according to The Gainesville Sun.

Stipe claimed that she called the police but they told her that she can't press charges because nobody was injured.

The visibly annoyed doctor is then heard saying that it would take longer for her to be seen at another clinic or the emergency room. "Get your money and get the hell out.If you go to CareSpot you're waiting for three hours".

Witness testimonies described stipe as "irate" and said that she threatened staff, telling them they "have what's coming to them".

"I want to go home and get in my bed-" Stipe replies before being cut off.

The physician, Dr. Peter Gallogly, released a statement.

At one point, Stipe's daughter asks Gallogly's name.

When the doctor realized her daughter had recorded his temper tantrum, he grabbed the phone from her hand and began walking away.

Stipe told CBS 4 that she believes he tried to delete the video and then threw the phone back at her.
