Florida Teen Pretends To Be A Doctor At A Hospital For A Month

Like something out of sitcom from the 90’s a young Florida teenager played his own version of “Doogie Howser, M.D.” for the past month. The 17- year-old boy dressed up in a white lab coat with the words “anesthesiology” printed on it, wore a stethoscope around his neck and hung out at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach posing as a doctor. You would think that someone would have picked up on this earlier; as luck turns out they did. A security guard at the hospital told authorities that he had seen the teen wandering around for a month, including in “secure” areas of the facility.  Great job security guard! Maybe the security guard thought that it was “bring your kid to work month… and let him pretend to do your job?”

The kid acted out a perverted version of Catch Me If You Can.

His ruse was up when the teen boy totally lived out the one thing that every teen boy jokes about becoming; a gynecologist. This kid is the hero of middle school lunch rooms everywhere.  Posing as an OB-GYN on Tuesday, the boy introduced himself to a patient as “Dr. Robinson.” That’s when a real gynecologist at the hospital, Dr. Sebastian Kent witnessed the 17-year-old taking the patient into an exam room and thought to himself “I am really getting old because these young doctors look younger every year!”

This is going to hurt their Yelp rating.

Dr. Kent called security (hopefully not the same guard who let this kid slide by for a month) who then contacted local police. Thankfully the teen, who cops caught wearing a surgical mask, never actually got to “examine” a patient.  Well, that sure took some balls. There is one thing we can say about this fake gynecologist; he is definitely not a pussy.
