Dr. Anjali Ramkissoon: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

“Get the f*** in the car you piece of f****** disgusting s***.”

Those were the words spoken by the woman in the video above, identified by Miami Local 10 as Dr. Anjali Ramkissoon, a neurology resident at Jackson Memorial Medical Center.

The video, posted in January by Youtube user JuanCinco, shows Ramkissoon attempt to get in an Uber vehicle, then proceed to throw everything out of the driver’s car. This is JuanCinco’s first and only YouTube post.

Ramkissoon, 30, is a fourth-year resident employed by Jackson Health System, and was placed on administrative leave, effective immediately. The driver in the video hasn’t been identified.

On April 22, Jackson Health System released an official statement after an investigation, stating that they are “moving forward with the termination of Dr. Anjali Ramkissoon, a resident doctor. She is entitled to an appeal process.”

The cellphone video of the fourth-year neurology resident striking and screaming profanities at the Uber driver in the Brickell area received hundreds of thousands of views. In the clip, Ramkissoon, wearing shorts and an orange shirt, and the driver argue as he refuses to give her a ride. He was there to pick up another passenger.

Shortly after the incident, University of Miami Medicine released a statement on their Facebook and Twitter regarding Ramkisoon’s status:

Here’s what you need to know:


1. She Allegedly Stole the Driver’s Keys & Tried Running Away With Them Before the Video Started

The incident happened Sunday night in Miami.

The video was uploaded on January 19 but didn’t pick up steam until Thursday. In the video description, JuanCinco gives a detailed description of what happened:

We were on the phone with this uber driver while he pulled up to our location. Out of nowhere the girl in the video gets in the backseat of his car and won’t get out. We told the driver it was ok, to just cancel our ride, but he did not want to take her anywhere so he kept telling her to get out.

Eventually the driver gets out and says he’s calling the cops to get her out of the car. After a couple of minutes of the driver pretending to talk to the cops (im assuming he was pretending because they never showed up at first), the girl decides to reach into the front seat, grab his keys, and start walking away with his keys in her hands…. That’s where the video starts…

Miami Police responded to the incident, but did not arrest Ramkissoon because the driver didn’t want to press charges and she gave him money as an apology.

Although no charges have been filed, Ramkissoon has faced the wrath of the Internet. Her Instagram, Facebook and other social media pages have been taken down. Someone even edited a picture of her to make it appear she was topless.

Police said they did not take a report on the incident. “There is no incident report by us. She wasn’t arrested so she’s not in the system,” Detective Frederica Burden told the Miami New Times. “The police responded to the location but it was a disturbance call. No report is generated for a disturbance call.”

Ramkissoon has not commented publicly since the video went viral.

The Uber driver appears to have control of Ramkissoon early in the video, holding her wrists in an attempt to restrain her. She attempts to free herself by kneeing the driver in the groin, resulting in the driver shoving Ramkissoon to the ground and making a break for his car.

When he gets to his car, Ramkissoon gets in on the passenger side and begins to berate the driver. The driver immediately exits, so Ramkissoon starts yelling “get in the f****ing car” and throwing his belongings outside the vehicle.

Ramkissoon proceeds to fill the street with papers and items from the driver’s car — including throwing a pair of scissors and smashing his phone.

According to JuanCinco, Ramkissoon became remorseful after police arrived. “It was only when they put her in the police car that she started crying, apologizing, and claiming that she would lose her medical license (she claimed to be a neurologist) if she got arrested,” JuanCinco includes in the description.

3. Uber Has Suspended the Account Belonging to Ramkissoon – Who’s a Miami Native Living With Her Family

Uber said in a statement that it has suspended her account.

“Uber expects everyone associated with the platform – both drivers and riders – to conduct themselves with a shared level of respect and common courtesy, and all forms of harassment and abuse are not tolerated. We have suspended the rider account of this individual as we investigate the incident,” Uber said.

According to voter records, Ramkissoon is 30 years old and living in the Miami area as recently as November. She lives with family, and graduated from North Miami Beach High School.

Her sister, 28-year old Kavita Ramkissoon, attended law school at Nova Southeastern University and passed the Florida bar exam in 2013. She now works for the firm Kanner & Pintaluga as an associate attorney, specializing in accidents and injuries.

According to her mom’s Facebook, Patricia Ramkissoon worked as a secretary a the University of Miami School of Medicine from 1983 to 1988. She also took classes at Barry University, where Kavita graduated with a BS in Criminology.

Ramkissoon’s boyfriend is also a doctor who studied at the University of Miami.

Neighbor Ruby Ferro told CBS4 about Ramkissoon, “I just got surprised because they’re a beautiful family,” said Ferro. “Anjali and her sister, they’re good girls. They’re quiet people. They never have a problem. You could be a beautiful person but one day you have a problem, the job or the family or the boyfriend and you change that day. But that doesn’t mean you’re a bad person.”

Ramkissoon is in the fourth year of University of Miami’s neurology residency program. She works at the main teaching hospital of the university’s medical school, Jackson Memorial. A search for her name turns up a post from the the Epilepsy Center at University of Miami Hospital citing its excellent levels of patient care, but the post has been removed. A cache of the page reveals a 2014 press release citing this hospital’s Level 4 rating for its quality of specialized epilepsy care and listing her as a member of the epilepsy team.

  1. I believe the investigation should include her time spent at Barry university. She has a history which has been commented on various articles regarding this incident. Who cares what doctoral program she attended. Everyone has skeletons and unfortunately she has many that the public and probably those who think they know her the best don’t know about. As a person who lived in her dorm at Barry among 9 others..and other peers that have crossed her path..have a lot to say.

  2. Everyone has those times where you want to erase them or take them back. Just like when you watch celebrities unravel it’s normal that they are going through major break downs it’s just that not everyone gets video taped doing it. When people are under huge amounts of stress or having any type of problem in their lives that they can’t handle sometimes you go off the rails a bit mentally. If she was going through something and then she was drinking of course it’s going to make things elevate. I guarantee every one of us has gone through something crazy and maybe you don’t even realize how bad it was because it wasn’t video taped and streamed all over social media. People love to Jump all over someone and put them down but no one knows what anyone else is going through. Even when you do, you do not know what they are going through mentally because everyone handles things a little differently. What she did ya was bad but she isn’t the only one who has gotten out of control drunk- she acted out – leave her alone. She’s getting punished in a worse way – her career is greatly affected by this, that’s enough punishment for her…..

    • You are absolutely right. Thank you. People acting as if they are washed with milk just coz their shit hasn’t got taped.

    • I’ve never in my life have acted out that way and destroyed someone else’s personal property. Her behavior was disgusting. This woman was out of control and deserves the vitriol against her imo. She deserves to lose her license and never practice again. She has absolutely no self-constraint or respect for others. She needs a reality check about how to live like a civilized person. I think she finally got it. Let her struggle with this for a while. Sometimes people need things like this to happen to make drastic changes in their lives.

    • I couldn’t agree more. It’s horrendous how people rush to judgment with absolutely no understanding of what she is going through in her personal life.

      • How do you think of the driver’s life? why do you only care the girl? the driver is an honest man doing his thing and all of the sudddent this girl came up ruin his car throwing everything. how about that?

      • That’s an excuse to be a belligerent asshole and treat others with complete disrespect?

        Sorry, no. What’s horrendous is this little miss’s behaviour and continued inability to be contrite about it. Making excuses about her dad or her bf? Who cares? Everyone’s got a story, lady. Not all of us are taking it out on innocent bystanders.

  3. Wow! She is really Ugly with that huge Hook-Nose and those Crossed Eyes! She should consider wearing a Veil. Be on the lookout for her at your local Doc-in-the-Box.

      • nonames – you probably have an IQ in the single digits. A single-digit, dense-skulled, pea-brained clown. Apparently, it is meat you are after, and you’ll do anything – anything that even creeps and crawls. Please don’t breed!

        • what did he said that you elaborated his traits.she is hot doesnt seems to be wearing underwear in the video.a single digit iq cant have this ability.:P

  4. Another pampered Indian c*nt who believes the world owes her something…. suspend her without pay for a year… that should be enough, mother nature has already given her what was left in the box of beauty (which wasn’t much).. I hope she finds a good plastic surgeon and lives happily ever after with some submissive Indian guy who has to put up with her forever.

  5. As a former fellow in the same program it really hurts to see how a colleague could degrade themselves this way. I am writing this to simply state that after seeing my patients , some of my colleagues and senators, cabinet members, current president as well as presidential candidates that we should be more closely examining people; especially those that are important offices or those that simply lose it for disorders of personality especially Naricissistic , Borderline and Sociopathic Personality disorders. We should have a system in place that screens for this with reasonable accuracy and if they are found to have it then to provide counseling and if they refuse or are deemed to toxic then fire them. Just look at some of our presidential candidates and ask yourself is there really that much difference in the behaviors?

    • It’s Jackson health not Harvard lol, and your own post sounds narcissistic speaking from a position of judgement. Also, she’s a neurologist not a neurosurgeon as stated by the author. Not a lot of screening to prescribe Ambian.

  6. Nasty woman. She 0bviously has a personality problem and has had it for some time.. Anjali Ramkissoon should never be allowed to practice medicine.

  7. She looks really hot and her ex it is his loss. The Uber driver was a jerk. Posters give her a break, a bad day. Like you never had a bad day and are perfect as Jesus? Doubtful.

    • Yea, a girl skinny Indian girl who wears too much makeup. How will he ever recover from all the embarrassing outburst and spoiled Miami attitude she brings. How will he live without a little party girl who was smart enough to make it through med school while being ignorant enough to kill her career. How dare that jerk of an Uber driver tell her he was there for another customer and ask her to leave the car. Her and her AVERAGE looks should get her off. Oh she’s hot? I’m sorry not even close , get your eyes checked and stfu with your rhetoric. Like you never had bad day , damn right I have but i’m not self centered enough to take it out on a poor man trying to do his damn job by destroying his property because I’m not a little princess in my head who’s not getting my way. What a joke she is. Guess what? I win because they fired her, she has no reputation left and no one will touch her. Maybe she can arrange marry for money.

    • Honestly Anjali (because it’s clear that you are the one under the avatar “angel” responding to all these comments…

      I have NEVER reacted to anyone in this manner not even on the worst day of my life – neither have my friends. If everyone reacted like you do to the life events you so claim, what kind of a society do you think we’d be living in? I hope this is not only a lesson to you, but others out there who think and act like you. I don’t think you’ve learned your lesson because you’re still trying to defend your actions.

      • Besides using “she” or “her instead of “me” or “I”, she doesn’t even put any real effort to hiding it. Pretty laughable.

    • It is painfully obvious that you are Anjali. The world saw your true nature, and it was an ugly mess. It wasn’t a mistake, or a bad day, it was just you being you when you thought no one important was looking. You’re going to have a lot of difficulty maintaining a professional career for the rest of your life, because the moment any employer googles your name this psychotic tantrum is going to pop up in their browser. Let me tell you what most people experience when they watch this video for the first time:
      Revolted by you, feeling sorry for the driver. Admiring his restraint, like a big dog calmly holding his composure while an petulant little poodle nips at his ankles. Hoping that the video ends with a little karmic justice putting you in your place. Disappointed that it ended without you getting tazed by the police.

      Now, put yourself in the shoes of a potential employer, watching this video in his office after going over your resume. Because HE actually has the position to deliver you a little karmic justice. By throwing your resume in the trash. Most people will. You’ll be very, very lucky to find someone who A) wants to reward you with a job and B) wants you associated with their name.

      You’re ok looking if that makes you feel better.

  8. Someone should hack into angel’s account- it’s Anjali trying to defend her actions. That would also make another interesting news headline.

  9. I think all of this could have been prevented if the Uber followed his main customer’s wishes to take the girl instead because obviously she is drunk. But he was so adamant in rejecting her and that’s what happen during, rest is history. The customers were “we told the driver it’s okay to just cancel our ride” … I guess miscommunication or assuming that he wasn’t going to get paid anymore, that’s stressor on the driver. Maybe he was really short on money so he was quick to tell the girl to get out!

  10. I think people comment that MD’s shouldn’t act this are hilarious. You wanna see some of the biggest pre-madonna asshats in the world? Hang out in a hospital with Doctors and Surgeons. Their tirades make this look like childs play.

  11. She was Baker Acted at Miami’s Mercy Hospital one month before the video hit the web. Also a bad day (night)? Suicide attempt. She was even intubated. As one who wipes the poop from Baker Acted patients, most of them do it to manipulate loved ones (Google that, there may be some statistics on it). If I am wrong and there is a real underlying problem, Anjali should not be wearing a lab coat. Maybe the stress of patient care broke her. More likely, the stress of lost love did her in. And one more thing… for those of you good at being able to tell if someone is tipsy or full-out drunk, take another look at the video… is she really that drunk?

  12. The key question is: Will you entrust your brain health (and your life) to a physician who shows such poor impulse control and responsibility in public. I know, I wouldn’t.

  13. She is attractive. Everyone makes drunk errors, unfortunately the higher up on the academic scale more social responsibility is incurred. Hope Dr. Ramkisson learns from the mistake made.
