A video has gone viral of a Doctor shouting at a patient to “get the f*** out of my office” when she complained about the wait at his surgery.
The woman in the video, Jessica Stipe, claimed the medic went “mad” when she asked for an $80 (£60) copy – a fee which is paid by patients before receiving treatment – to be returned at a clinic in Gainesville, Florida.
Police have reportedly now launched a criminal investigation after the confrontation was filmed in a waiting room at the Gainesville After Hours Clinic.
Dramatic footage captured by Jessica’s daughter reveals doctor Peter Gallogly angrily confront Jessica when she complains about the length of her wait.
When Jessica says that she wants to go home and get in bed, the doctor replies by saying: “Then fine, get the hell out, get your money and get the hell out.”
Jessica responds to the Doctor by branding the doctor “rude” and “disrespectful” to which he angrily retaliates “get the f*** out of my office now“.
As the women tries to leave the office, Dr. Gallogly is told the confrontation was filmed and is captured trying to grab a mobile phone belonging to Jessica’s daughter.
The footage was then uploaded onto Jessica’s Facebook page and has received over 350,000 views.
Police have launched a criminal investigation after the footage went viral, the Gainseville Sun reports.
Jessica said on Facebook that she arrived at the surgery out-of-hours in a lot of pain after “throwing up in the trash can.”
She alleged that she paid her fee and urinated as part of tests but had not been seen by 7.45pm so she decided to go home.
Jessica wrote on Facebook: “My daughter recorded it because they were so rude.
“When he saw it was being recorded he snatched my baby’s phone and shoved her when she tried to get it back.”
