Video captures Florida doctor screaming at patient for complaining about wait
Oct 13 2017 by Marjorie Miles
A fiery video filmed inside a Gainesville doctor's office this week is making the rounds across the internet as a doctor is seen screaming and cursing at a patient. "Despite repeated requests from the office staff, she repeatedly demanded to see me instead of leaving".
Jessica Stipe said in a post on Facebook that she had an appointment for 6:30 p.m. Monday at Gainesville After Hours Clinic.
The Gainesville After-Hours Clinic's website said on a since-deleted page that Gallogly graduated from the University of Florida College of Medicine in 2001 and completed his residency in family medicine at Alachua General Hospital.
As Stipe and her daughter leave, the doctor asks if he's being recorded before snatching the cell phone.
"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. He said that Stipe received her refund but still would not leave.
The video, he said, was heavily edited and taken out of context.
Stipe responded to Gallogly's account, saying it's "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.
