WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Doogie howser, ME, was a TV series about a kid who was a doctor.

But a Florida guy is a real kid who claims to be a real doctor. AND Palm Beach authorities say “not so fast, Skippy.”

He’s 18-year-old Malachi Love-Robinson.

He has a real-for-sure document that says he’s certified to practice holistic medicine,

And he even has the “New Birth, New Life Medical Center and Urgent Care”, complete with a Website on the Internet.

Cops busted him after they say he did a physical exam on an undercover officer.

He describes himself on his Web page as a well-rounded professional who treats and cares for patients using a system of blah-blah-blah-blah-blah.

Reports say staff members of a local hospital called the cops on him in January 2015 when they saw him with a stethoscope and wearing a surgical mask and lab coat.

They say he told him he had been a doctor for years.

He wasn’t arrested, but reports at the time said he was under a doctor’s care and not taking meds.

Another one of his claims on his Facebook page (that’s no longer available) is that he has Stage 2 kidney cancer.

The post from Feb. 11 also claims he’s a victim of identity theft.

Hey, how about this? Maybe the thief stole his fake identity, and doctored it.
