During the argument in the waiting room, captured on video by Stipe's teen daughter, Dr. Peter Gallogly of Gainesville After Hours Clinic charges toward Stipe, shouting and jabbing a pointed finger toward her face.
When Stipe told him he was being rude, he shouted: "Get the f-- out of my office". "When he saw it was being recorded he snatched my baby's phone and shoved her when she tried to get it back". She said she made an appointment for 6:30 p.m. and by 7:45 she still had not been seen by a doctor and was in "severe pain and throwing up in a trash can".
Stipe stands by her story as she said: "I don't want anybody else in my community or any other community to receive that type of care or behavior towards them".
Gallogy says the video doesn't show the events that led up to the confrontation. "I got seven rooms back there", the physician snaps.
Toward the finish of the moment long clasp, Stipe's little girl - who is a minor, as indicated by Stipe - comments that she's been recording the entire thing.
She said in a Facebook post, which has been shared 2.3k times: "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 that miserable".
Gallogly reveals to Stipe that he's as of now run a pee test on her before logically asking her, "Does that take 3 seconds, you think?"
Stipe says she filed an incident report with police and plans to speak with an attorney.
The doctor released a statement to FOX 35 saying,"Ms. Stipe had been increasingly belligerent and abusive to office staff, cursing them and threatening them with violence", allegations which she has denied.
"Yes I'm employed, I don't do drugs & yes I wanted meds. a antibiotic!" she wrote.
Gallogly apologized in his statement, saying he was defending his staff when he over-reacted, and that there was no excuse for his behavior. Do you know how many people ... "But please appreciate that the video is but the last minute or two of a very abusive tirade against my office staff by the two women".
