Teen posed as doctor: Teen 'doctor' wandered halls, hung out in OB/GYN exam room - Long Island Top News | Examiner.com

 

A Florida teen posed as a doctor for weeks at a West Palm Beach hospital, roaming the halls, checking in on patients – and had a particular interest in hanging around the OB/GYN exam rooms. The 17-year-old teenager, whose name was not released, will not be charged, police said. He’s no Doogie Howser, but he got away with his medical ruse for nearly a month.

 

The Sun Sentinel on Jan. 15 reported that “West Palm Beach police busted a juvenile who was posing as a doctor — with a white lab coat and all — for a month at St. Mary's Medical Center. Police said they got a call on Jan. 13 about a juvenile walking around in a white doctor's lab coat and carrying a stethoscope who was telling people he was a doctor.”

 

Staff at the hospital said the juvenile would enter rooms and “observe” patients. He asked a number of doctors on staff if he could “shadow” them, and was seen looking in on women as they were being examined by gynecologists.

 

The boy’s mother said her son suffers from an undisclosed mental illness, and that he has been refusing to take his medication for some time. After staff and patients at the hospital grew suspicious, the teen was confronted and police were called. When police confronted the fake doctor, he claimed he was in fact licensed and that he had been practicing medicine "for years."
