VIDEO: Bay Area doctor suspended after incident with patient


El Camino Hospital in Los Gatos has suspended an emergency room physician who was videotaped having a tense encounter with a patient who claimed to be suffering from an anxiety attack. The patient, 20-year-old Samuel Bardwell, was hospitalized on Monday after suffering an anxiety attack following a basketball practice. Bardwell’s father Donald told SFGATE that his son has a history of anxiety attacks, and that he takes Klonopin, a sedative that can treat seizures, panic disorder, and anxiety.
