Gainesville doctor has heated confrontation with patient

A Florida doctor was caught on video screaming at a sick patient

A Florida doctor was caught on video screaming at a sick patient

In the video, Stipe is seen telling the doctor that they should tell people with appointments when they won't be seen in a "timely manner".

A Florida doctor - who apparently missed his calling as a cop - seized a woman's phone after she recorded him kicking her mother out of his office.

"When he saw it was being recorded he snatched my baby's phone and shoved her when she tried to get it back", Stipe wrote on Facebook.

Then, Stipe's daughter, recording the exchange, can be heard saying "Okay, you can get out of her face".

"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", Gallogly says in his statement, according to CBS 4.

Stipe wrote in the caption that she was "severely sick" and went to Gainesville After Hours clinic for a check-up. "I got seven rooms back there", the physician snaps.

She said she was throwing up in a trash can and she does look visibly sick in the video, so she asked for a return of her co-payment so she could come back the next day. "You know this was uncalled for & for those of you who don't and are being rude and hateful to me and my child".

But later that night the Gainesville Police Department did open a criminal investigation, according to spokesman Officer Ben Tobias, Gainesville.com reported.

When Stipe says she wants to go home, the doctor angrily tells her to "get the hell out". A representative at Gainesville After Hours said she had no comment on the matter but would forward calls to a manager. She asked for her $80 copayment back. "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". "Get your money and get the hell out".

Gallogly tells Stipe to "Get the f*** out of my office". When the doctor realized he was being recorded, he appeared to grab the girl's phone out of her hand and walk away with it.

Regarding the doctor's statements, Stipe said they were "absolutely not true".

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

Stipe said she has spoken to an attorney because Gallogly needed to be held responsible.
