A video being widely shared on Facebook shows a doctor yelling at a woman to get out of a Gainesville clinic after she complained of a long wait.

Jessica Stipe said in a post on Facebook that she had an appointment for 6:30 p.m. Monday at Gainesville After Hours Clinic. She said the clinic had taken a urine sample, but by 7:45 p.m., she was still waiting to be seen.

Stipe said in the post she was trying to get her co-pay back so she could go home, go back to bed and be seen by another doctor the next day. She said at that point, she was in "severe pain and throwing up in the trash can."

“If you go to CareSpot, you’re waiting for three hours. Go to the ER and wait for nine hours,” the doctor said in the video. “Get the [expletive] out of my office.”

The Gainesville Sun reports that the Gainesville Police Department confirmed that the doctor in the video, Peter Gallogly, is now under criminal investigation.

Stipe said her daughter recorded the incident and that the doctor shoved her daughter and took her phone.

CBS4 in Gainesville reported that a representative at Gainesville After Hours said she had no comment on the matter but would forward calls to a manager.
