An emergency room physician working at El Camino Hospital in Los Gatos, California has been put on leave after footage was released showing her mocking a black athlete who suffered a panic attack during a basketball practice.

According to 5KPIX, Dr. Beth Keegstra, is awaiting her fate after the video was released, showing her doubting Samuel Bardwell’s account of his symptoms after he had to be rushed to the ER by his father.

“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,” Keegstra brusquely told Bardwell as his father, Donald, filmed the encounter.

Keegstra then tied to pull the younger man up by his arm, telling him, “You want us to wheel you to your house in a gurney?”

According to the young man’s father, his son has a history of anxiety attacks and takes Klonopin, which treats seizures and anxiety disorders. He added that Samuel had not taken his medication in the days leading up to Tuesday’s attack.

Speaking with 5KPIX, Donald Bardwell said the doctor entered the cubicle with an attitude.

“She never first came in and introduced herself,” he explained. “She never said her name, she never asked for his name, she never really examined him.”

He added that she accused them both of looking for drugs.

“She said, ‘I know why you people are here, you people who come here for drugs,’ and I said ‘What do you mean you people?’” Donald recalled. “She was rambling on so angrily that’s why I pulled out my phone.”

Administrators at the hospital issued a statement saying Keegstra has been “removed from the work schedule, pending further investigation.”

President Donald Trump has been disappointed in right-wing media for not giving him more credit for pardoning longtime advisor Roger Stone.

"A senior administration official said there were serious divisions among Trump’s aides and allies over Stone’s case, with some cautioning that keeping him out of prison could be politically risky. Among those opposed was Attorney General William P. Barr, who called the prosecution 'righteous' in an interview Wednesday with ABC News, the official said, adding that those pushing Trump to show loyalty to Stone included Rep.
