He recorded his son, 20-year-old Samuel Bardwell, at El Camino Hospital in Los Gatos, CA, near San Jose.
Bardwell was rushed to the emergency room on June 11 after he suffered an apparent anxiety attack and passed out after a basketball workout at West Valley College in Saratoga, California.
Bardwell's father, Donald, recorded Keegstra pulling on his son's arms and ordering him to sit up.
"She said, "I know why you people are here, you people who come here for drugs, ' and I said, 'What do you mean you people?'" Donald said".
"I guess she was so angry and assumed he was a druggie and had drugs in his system, she thought she could talk to us any which way we wanted", Bardwell told the San Francisco Gate. Then she turned to Samuel Bardwell and asks, "Are you dead, sir?". She told the boy that he's the least sick patient in the room and that there were people dying there.
Keegstra - who has over 20 years of experience in emergency medicine, according to her LinkedIn profile - didn't immediately respond to SFGate's request for comment.
A spokesperson for El Camino Hospital told KPIX-TV in a statement, "We are saddened and disappointed by the physician's unprofessional interaction with the patient in the video". Therefore, she had been removed from the working schedule, and the hospital officials are now performing more investigations on the matter.
Samuel Bardwell also mentions he can't breathe in, to which Keegstra replies: "He can't inhale, wow!" She even tries to yank him up after he clearly states that he can not move.
In the video, Bardwell is heard telling the doctor that Samuel had vomited and "was going in an out of consciousness" during the episode.

"I came in here wanting to help you and you're changing your story around", she says.
The video was posted on Tuesday by Donald Bardwell. He said Mr. Bardwell had been "off his meds for two days because he couldn't get to the pharmacy before it closed", according to the report. "I'm having you sit up!"
"You want us to wheel you to your house in a gurney?"
As they continued to argue about Bardwell's care, the doctor asked him whether he needed narcotics.
"Here we go", says Donald Bardwell.
"He can't inhale!" Keegstra said. "The physician is a contracted provider and has been removed from our ER schedule".
'I don't feel it's race related but just bad nursing/bedside manner'.
In a statement, the hospital told ABC News, "We have expressed our honest apologies and are working directly with the patient on this matter".
Donald Bardwell told ABC News that he thinks Keegstra should lose her medical license. The horrifying video shows the doctor repeatedly making fun of, swearing at, and even trying to pull him up out of his hospital bed, and has now been suspended for her vicious treatment of a patient in need.
