Gainesville doctor has heated confrontation with patient

Gainesville doctor has heated confrontation with patient

The incident ensued after Stipe complained to the staff that she had been waiting for over an hour for an appointment and wanted her money back, The Gainesville Sun reports.

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.

The video shows Stipe telling Gallogly that the staff should let patients know if they are not going to be seen in a timely manner. 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.

Stipe wrote in the caption that she was "severely sick" and went to Gainesville After Hours clinic for a check-up. "Despite repeated requests from the office staff, she repeatedly demanded to see me instead of leaving". "I asked for my co pay back so I could leave and go back home to bed and try to be seen elsewhere tomorrow because I'm just miserable that all I want is my bed".

That's when she made a decision to confront her doctor, at about 7:45 p.m., she wrote, in an argument that quickly escalated and allegedly resulted in her daughter getting shoved.

"Are you kidding me?" the doctor said. "We've already been working on you, we've done a urine test on you", he says. And the entire scene was caught on tape by Stipe's daughter - until the doctor grabbed her phone. "What's your name (doctor)?"


When the doctor realized her daughter had recorded his temper tantrum, he grabbed the phone from her hand and began walking away.

"My daughter recorded it because they were so rude".

However, Gallogly appeared to have a different story, the Miami Herald reported.

Dr. Gallogly released a statement Wednesday with regards to the incident as he said: "it was heavily edited and taken out of context", according to CBS. At one point, Gallogly asks Stipe whether she wants to be seen, to which she responds, "I want to go home and get in my bed".

"Ms. Stipe had been increasingly belligerent and abusive to the office staff, cursing them and threatening them with violence, because she was unwell and had been waiting to be seen by me for more than an hour", Gallogly wrote. "I make no excuses for my unacceptable behavior", Gallogly wrote.
