WEST PALM BEACH, Florida – Inside a hospital in West Palm Beach, a young man was spotted in a white lab coat walking the halls. Sure, the average person likely thought he was a medical professional, but he wasn’t.

Instead, he was a teenager pretending to be an Ob/Gyn doctor!

A real doctor at the hospital found the poser talking to one of his patients and that’s when the poser was uncovered. Apparently, the young man had been posing as an gynecologist for a month, even examining patients. A distrubing reality for patients that he ended up seeing.

Some call it a serious breach of security.  While others found the situation pretty humorous. The poser’s mother says he is under a real doctor’s care, but has been refusing to take his medications.

Police and hospital officials agreed not to seek charges against the teen. Sounds like the fake doctor needs to stick to healing himself.
