“I was in so much pain from my neck. My neck hurt so bad. I was crushed. He made me feel like I was a drug addict, and he knew I was a physician. I don’t take narcotics. I was hurting,” the 52-year-old said from her hospital bed, as she fought to hold back tears.
“If I was white, I wouldn’t have to go through that. That man never came back and apologised,” she added.
Dr Moore shared the video on Facebook on 4 December, five days after she was admitted to Carmel hospital in Indiana. She continued to post updates throughout her stay.
