Jon Basso, who styles himself as Doctor Jon and his waitresses as nurses, revealed that paramedics had to be called in order to help the unidentified man and dismissed speculation that it was a stunt to garner publicity for the restaurant.

The customers were confused whether it was a genuine emergency or a stunt for the restaurant which has a sign, "Caution! This establishment is bad for your health", on its front door.
However Basso was quick to dismiss speculation that it was a stunt by saying that the restaurant would not pull a stunt like that. The report was confirmed by Las Vegas Fire and Rescue which revealed that a man was indeed admitted to the hospital but added that he was on road to complete recovery.
