Video shows ER doctor mock man during anxiety attack: ‘He must be dead!’

A California emergency room doctor was caught on video laughing and cursing at a patient who was complaining of anxiety and pain last week - and now she's in trouble.

In the video, Bardwell is heard telling the doctor that Samuel had vomited and "was going in an out of consciousness" during the episode.

Dr. Beth Keegstra was reportedly examining 20-year-old Samuel Bardwell who was rushed to El Camino Hospital, reports theDaily Mail.

The video has been viewed 4.4 million times as of writing. She also accused Bardwell as changing his story "every f***ing time".

Bardwell's father then stepped in to try to explain to the doctor that his son was experiencing "labored breathing".

When Bardwell told Keegstra that he couldn't inhale and felt pain and numbness, the doctor said.

In the release, the hospital apologized for "a physician whose demeanor was unprofessional".

'She didn't say anything racist at all.

Bardwell says he is anxious that if his son leaves the hospital, he'll have another attack. In the run-up to this week's incident, Samuel Bardwell had not picked up his most recent supply of the drug due to his busy schedule as a working student, and as his father explained, neither man was sure what would happen if Samuel did not take his medication as prescribed. Keegstra brushed off his concerns however, and insisted the young man was just fine.

"He can't inhale", she replied, mocking him.

When he tells her he can not inhale, she laughs in disbelief.

She then asked Bardwell mockingly, "Are you dead, sir?".

Keegstra, who worked at El Camino since 2010, was not a staff worker but employed by Emeryville-based Vituity.

According to American Addiction Centers, withdrawal from Klonopin can induce nausea, anxiety and seizures.

Donald Bardwell says he videotaped Dr. Beth Keegstra mocking and ridiculing his son, Samuel Bardwell, 20, who was brought to the emergency room at El Camino Hospital in Los Gatos, Calif.

"He had a prescription waiting for him at the pharmacy but could not pick it up", Bardwell told the newspaper.

When the 6-foot-9 Bardwell told Keegstra he couldn't get up, the doctor responded.

In the video, she laughs and tells someone off-camera, "He must be dead".

She told him he was "the least sick of all the people who are here, who are dying".

"I guess she was so angry and assumed he was a druggie and had drugs in his system, she thought she could talk to us any which way we wanted", Bardwell told the San Francisco Gate.

In a statement, El Camino Hospital CEO Dan Woods announced that they've instructed Vituity/California Emergency Physicians, the company Dr. Keegstra is contracted by, to suspend her from all of their hospital's facilities.

Bardwell posted video of the incident on his Facebook page where it's received almost 4.7 million views since Tuesday: "This is how they treat black people in Los Gatos emergency room", he wrote in his post.
