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.

In the post that has since been shared more than 1,800 times, Stipe wrote that she was "severely sick" and had made a 6:30 appointment at the clinic.

In a statement released to WCJB, Gallogly said he "overreacted" in the situation and then describes why things went so out of hand, showing a different side to Stipe.

A video posted on Facebook Tuesday night appears to show a Gainesville doctor yelling at a patient and then grabbing her daughter's cell phone as she recorded the confrontation.

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

"Mom, I got it on video, it doesn't matter", the daughter said, and asked the doctor: "What's your name?" By 7:45, she said doctors had only taken a urine test and she was throwing up in a trash can.

When Stipe told the doctor that she just wanted to return to her home and wanted her co-pay back, the doctor told her to leave instantly. He said in a statement Wednesday that the woman had been threatening the office staff with violence.

Gainesville After-Hours Clinic has yet to comment on the ordeal.

But the woman said that she'd been misled about the wait times, and that she hadn't gotten the treatment she had come in for. "Despite repeated requests from the office staff, she repeatedly demanded to see me instead of leaving", according to the statement. "Do you know how many people".

"He took her phone and shoved her she is a minor", Stipe wrote. "Get your money and get the hell out". 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". "Get the f*** out of my office".

Regarding the doctor's statements, Stipe said they were "absolutely not true".

"My daughter recorded it because they were so rude", Stipe wrote.

She later told WSMH that she believes Gallogly was attempting to delete the video before throwing the phone back at them.

Stipe said she has spoken to an attorney because Gallogly needed to be held responsible.
