Doctor Abuses, Kicks Patient Out Of Clinic After Altercation

Doctor Abuses, Kicks Patient Out Of Clinic After Altercation

The doctor, identified as Dr. Peter Gallogly of Gainesville After Hours Clinic, curses at Stipe in the middle of the waiting room in the clip, which was recorded by Stipe's daughter.

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.

"All they had me do was pee in a cup to see if I'm pregnant. ummm I know I'm not", she wrote. Stipe believed she had symptoms of pneumonia, according to the Independent Florida Alligator, the University of Florida's student newspaper.

The video shows Stipe telling Gallogly that the staff should let patients know if they are not going to be seen in a timely manner.

Stipe's daughter was recording the incident and when the doctor saw that he was being recorded, he tried to snatch the phone from the child and "shoved her when she tried to get it back".

She says she waited for more than an hour there, then decided she was too weak to stay and wanted to go home.

Gainesville After-Hours Clinic has yet to comment on the ordeal.

Instantly, the doctor said: "Are you kidding me?"

Gallogly tells Stipe that he's already run a urine test on her before rhetorically asking her, "Does that take 3 seconds, you think?"

In her Facebook post, Stipe said she spoke with Gainesville police but that they weren't able to press charges because there were no injuries.

The dispute continues as Stipes daughter reassures her mom that it's okay and she had been filming the whole thing as she says to the doctor: 'Okay you can get out of her face'.

"I want to go home and get in my bed", she replied as he told her to "get the hell out".

Gallogly appeared to grab the girl's phone after she asked him the question. The clinic posted a statement from Gallogly who apologized and told his side of the story.

"Ms. Stipe had been increasingly belligerent and abusive to the office staff, cursing and threatening them with violence, because she was unwell and had been waiting to see me for more than an hour", he said in the statement, adding that she got a refund but refused to leave, CBS4 reported.

'I went to the front desk only because after Ms. Stipe received her refund, she refused to leave the office, and continued her abusive behavior towards staff'.

Stipe posted another Facebook status yesterday thanking friends for supporting her.
