Doctor Who Yelled At Patient In Gainesville Says He's "Sorry"

Yesterday, a video between a doctor and patient in Gainesville, Florida went viral after the doctor flipped out on a patient for complaining over her long wait time. 

The woman, Jessica Stipe had been waiting at Gainesville After Hours clinic for over an hour when she decided to ask why it was taking so long to be seen; the doctor wasn't having it, yelled at Jessica, then attacked her daughter when he realized he was being filmed. 

The Gainesville PD was called, Jessica lawyered up, and in the aftermath Dr. Peter Gallogly, a physician at the Gainesville After Hours Clinic released a statement with an apology. 

Dr. Gallogy said he was defending his staff when he overreacted at Jessica but he's saying that she wasn't so innocent herself. 

He wrote: "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 seen by me for more than an hour,"

"Despite repeated requests from the office staff, she repeatedly demanded to see me instead of leaving,"

Either way, the Gainesville PD has opened a formal criminal investigation into the incident. 

ICYMI, here is the video and Dr. Gallogy's apology statement.
