Doctor Suspended After Video Shows Her Trying To Hit Uber Driver

"I'll do whatever the f*** I want."

This doctor needs to work on her car-side manner.

A Miami physician was suspended after viral video surfaced of her apparently attempting to punch and knee an Uber driver, the AP reports. 

The person who took the video wrote that the confrontation began when the driver arrived to pick up another passenger but the doctor -- later identified as Anjali Ramkissoon -- jumped in and insisted that she get a ride. 

In the Jan. 19-posted video (see the longer version below) she can be heard spewing profanities at the driver and attempting to strike him with her hand and knee. When she enters his vehicle, she throws papers and a pair of scissors out.

The driver did not press charges, according to the Miami Herald. The YouTube poster wrote that the driver agreed to an undisclosed cash settlement from the woman. However, Ramkissoon, a fourth-year neurology resident, is facing disciplinary measures from Jackson Health System. She's been placed on administrative leave.

"Jackson has launched an internal investigation,” a spokesperson said, per the Herald. “The outcome of the investigation will determine whether any disciplinary action will be taken, up to and including termination."
