Heated confrontation between doctor and patient at Gainesville clinic

Facebook A Gainesville After Hours Clinic doctor is seen in a viral video posted to Facebook by Jessica Stipe
The Gainesville After-Hours Clinic's website said on a since-deleted page that Gallogly graduated from the University of Florida College of Medicine in 2001 and completed his residency in family medicine at Alachua General Hospital.
But later that night the Gainesville Police Department did open a criminal investigation, according to spokesman Officer Ben Tobias, Gainesville.com reported.
The patient, Jessica Stipe, says things got out of hand after she asked the office to return her $80 copay.
She is seen on the video telling the physician, Peter Gallogly, that the clinic should tell people with appointments when they won't be seen in a "timely manner". "All they had me do was pee in a cup to see if I'm pregnant", Stipe wrote. "Do you want to be seen or not?"
A Florida doctor - who apparently missed his calling as a cop - seized a woman's phone after she recorded him kicking her mother out of his office.
Gallogly, the physician, wrote that the video shows only the final moments of an hour-long argument, claiming that throughout her time in the clinic, Stipe had become "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".
In the video the doctor also says that Stipe was seen to and even had a urine sample taken.
"At that point, fine, get the damnation out", the specialist answers, indicating the entryway.
Then, a doctor got angry at her when she asked for her money back. "What's your name (doctor)?"
So he grabbed the phone and began to walk off with it, video shows.
Stipe's daughter was recording the incident and when the doctor saw that he was being recorded, he tried to snatch the phone from the child and "shoved her when she tried to get it back". She says she went to the clinic because she wasn't feeling well, and after waiting more than an hour and getting sick in the trash can, she had to leave.
"I went to the front desk only because after Ms. Stipe received her refund, she refused to leave the office, and continued her abusive behavior towards staff".
Gallogly apologized in his statement, saying he was defending his staff when he over-reacted, and that there was no excuse for his behavior.
