"I am really getting old because these young doctors look younger every year," one physician thought
A teenager in Florida managed to fool an entire medical center into thinking he was a doctor for a whole month before he was found out.
The teen wore a white coat that read “Anesthesiology” on the back as he walked through the corridors of St. Mary’s Medical Center in Palm Beach, KCTV 5 News reports.
“He presented himself with a patient of our practice and introduced himself as Dr. Robinson,” Dr. Sebastian Kent said. “The first thing I thought was, ‘I am really getting old because these young doctors look younger every year.'”
The teen was discovered after being caught in an examination room with a patient while wearing a mask and a stethoscope.
His mother told police he had an undisclosed illness and had not been taking his medication. Both police and the hospital decided not file charges.
