Update to the Story of Doctor Who Assaulted Uber Driver

In case you missed the story, a YouTube video of Dr. Anjali Ramkissoon, a fourth-year neurology resident in Miami, FL, went viral last week.  In the video, Dr. Ramkissoon is seen verbally and physically assaulting her Uber driver.  It was a hard to believe video when you watched it, and certainly made a lot of people happy that when they were acting foolishly, someone was not there with a video camera to capture the moment!

Since the incident, Dr. Ramkissoon and her family have (understandably) tried to avoid the media spotlight as much as possible.  Recently, Jose Lambiet of GossipExtra managed to track down Dr. Ramkissoon to her $2,000-a-month apartment at the Opera Tower in downtown Miami.  In his brief conversation with her, Jose reported:

The first thing we noticed about Ramkissoon when she opened the door was that she, as she claims during the attack, is really tiny.

As in 5-foot, 100 pounds all-wet tiny.

Second, she appeared to be much more soft-spoken than the dragon lady who tried to kick the Uber dude in the groin then tried to hit him with a right hook in an incident that occurred when she tried to take someone else’s ride in Miami Beach.

Further along in the conversation, it seems as though Dr. Ramkissoon does not fully grasp just how bad the situation looked to outsiders:

“I’m trying to stay under the radar with a few friends. I didn’t realize this was going to be such a big deal.  I had to change my cell phone number because strangers were calling to yell at me” said Dr. Ramkissoon.

In addition, Jose notes that Dr. Ramkissoon did not appear to be “contrite or apologetic.”  Dr. Ramkissoon goes on to say “I’m not sure I deserve what’s happening.”  Jackson Health System (where Dr. Ramkissoon is employed) is still considering their options and have not formally announced any decisions yet.

What do you make of this whole situation?

  1. Disgraceful. What the he!! is wrong with people these days? And she is a 4th year resident neurology student??? For goodness sake. I certainly wouldn’t want her treating me, considering the lack of judgment she used in this incident.

    She should be ashamed of herself. If I were that Uber driver, I would be taking legal action against her for harassment and property damage.

    Who was taking the video? And why didn’t anyone come to his aid, or hers for that matter? Why didn’t her “friends” (assuming she was with friends) try to calm her down? Where is the sense of accountability and responsibility?

    Oy oy oy!

    • MommyTraveler –

      The video was reported to be taken by the passenger who had actually ordered the Uber vehicle which was the target of Dr. Ramkissoon’s attention.

      It is a good question why none of her friends stepped in.

      • Sigh! Sometimes I worry about the future of the human race!! Her friends should have done something to stop her; the original passenger had no responsibility to help her. I feel bad for the poor Uber driver.

        I really hope she is banned as an Uber customer going forward. And, I hope she is held accountable for her actions in some way. At the VERY least, she should make an apology to the driver.

        And, she should wash her potty mouth out with soap! 😀

        • It was reported that the Uber driver received some monetary compensation from Dr. Ramkissoon, which may have led to his decision not to press charges.

          Uber did ban her as a customer.

          And she was placed on administrative duties at her job, pending further investigation.

    • From a CBSLocal story done about the incident:

      “Miami Police say they responded to a call of a disturbance, but did not arrest her. The driver did not want to press charges, and that Ramkissoon gave him a small amount of money as an apology.”

  2. looks like some people here is doing like gestapo here. everybody is allowed to have an oppinion, but accusing somebody, posting her full name and even saying where he lives is obscene. do you realize that you are endangering her safety and liberty? is this the land of the free? oh come on. let the vicitim bring this to court. no need for your assaults here
