Thank you

If you are terminated I would file an EEOC complaint here.It is clear you did nothing wrong and I wonder if your boss here is wanting to terminate based on your age, sex, race, etc and replace you with cheaper worker.The doctor was acting unprofessionally, all you did was ask him to stop yelling.

File charge

https://www.eeoc.gov/employees/charge.cfm

I hope you pursue this through EEOC if they take any kind of personnel action and sue for wrongful termination.

I appreciate the chance to help yo u so sorry this happened.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
