Doctor responds to argument in viral video

Doctor responds to argument in viral video

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.

Meanwhile, the doctor in the video, Dr. Peter Gallogly, released a statement, saying, "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".

In her Facebook post, Stipe wrote that she was "severely sick" after which she came to the Gainesville After Hours Clinic with a 6:30 p.m. EDT appointment. She said at that point, she was in "severe pain and throwing up in the trash can". She says she wants to go home and get in bed.

Both Stipe and her daughter tell him she's recording.

According to WGFL in Gainesville, Jessica Stipe was filling very sick on Monday night, so she went to the Gainesville After Hours clinic.

In the video, the patient can be heard saying that the office should advise patients that they might not be seen in a timely manner, to which the doctor responded by saying that she had been seen and he had collected a urine sample.

"Are you kidding me?" the doctor asks, his voice raised. "Gallogly responds." Do you know how many people.

"Mom, I got it on video, it doesn't matter", the daughter said, and asked the doctor: "What's your name?" "We've done a urine test on you, I've seen you".

He goes on to say she would be waiting far longer if she had gone to another clinic or an emergency room.

Gallogly tells Stipe to "Get the f*** out of my office".

But as Stipe and her daughter were walking out, the doctor realized the daughter had been recording the entire tense exchange. She noted that, though the police were there, they were unable to press charges because she has no injury. She asked for her $80 copayment back.
