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

A video being widely shared on Facebook shows a doctor yelling at a woman to get out of a Gainesville clinic after she complained of a long wait.

He says the video patient Jessica Stipe posted was the last minute of an "hour-long episode" that included Stipe cussing and threatening staff, even after her co-payment was returned.

The doctor concerned at the Gainesville After-Hours Clinic, 926 NW 13th St., Peter Gallogly, is now under criminal investigation, Gainesville Police spokesman Officer Ben Tobias said, according to The Gainesville Sun. "Go to the ER and wait for nine hours". She said the doctor was "mad" and "when he saw it was being recorded he snatched my baby's phone and shoved her when she tried to get it back". However, till 7:45 p.m. she was not seen by the doctor despite being in severe pain and she had apparently thrown up in a trash can also.

"Are you kidding me?" the doctor asks, his voice raised.

Gallogy says the video doesn't show the events that led up to the confrontation.

He then fires back with: "Then fine, get the hell out, get your money and get the hell out, see you later".

In a statement released to WCJB, Gallogly said he "overreacted" in the situation and then describes why things went so out of hand, showing a different side to Stipe. The video captures Gallogly asking, "You're recording this?" before grabbing the teen's phone and walking away with it. Do you know how many people.

It was here that physician Peter Gallogly came barging into the clinic's lobby, where he was recorded yelling in Stipes's face.

Gainesville police are investigating the incident as grand theft because of the allegations that the doctor took the daughter's phone, but officers would not comment on the investigation, which is still open.

She said she requested that her co-pay be returned to her so she could go home to bed and then seek treatment elsewhere the next day. The clinic posted a statement from Gallogly who apologized and told his side of the story.

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

When he walked into the waiting room to speak with her, he said, Stipe and her daughter "cursed and threatened me as they had done with the office staff previously".

He doesn't defend his behavior but claims he lost his temper: "While not an excuse for my behavior, a basic reason for my reaction is that I simply regard my staff as family, and I over-reacted to defend them".
