A Northern California emergency room doctor has been suspended after cursing and mocking a man who said he had an anxiety attack.
In the video, Dr. Beth Keegstra of El Camino Hospital in Los Gatos, Calif., is seen doubting Samuel Bardwell’s account of what happened to him.
She tries to force Bardwell, 20, to sit up by pulling at his arm, even though he clearly tells her that he is unable to.
“You are the least sick of all the people who are here, who are dying. So you put your head up. Don’t try to tell me you can’t move. Come on. Sit up.”
Bardwell was hospitalized Monday after experiencing an anxiety attack after a basketball practice. His father, Donald, said that Samuel has a history of anxiety attacks, for which he takes Klonopin.
“You want us to wheel you to your house in a gurney?” she asks him.
She replies, “You must be dead” and calls him “the least sick of all the people who are here.”
Keegstra couldn’t be reached for comment Sunday.
