Teen caught after posing as OB/GYN at hospital for month, fooling doctors

Police say a teenager in Florida was “playing doctor” inside a real medical facility. The teen, who posed as a doctor, was able to walk the halls of St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach. Police say he wore a white coat with the St. Mary’s logo. 

The impostor was busted while wearing a stethoscope around his neck and a mask on his face. At the time, he was in an examination room with a patient.



“He presented himself with a patient of our practice and introduced himself as Dr. Robinson,” Dr. Sebastian Kent said, an OB/GYN with St. Mary’s Medical Center.

According to the police report, the teen was inside the examination room with a patient when Dr. Kent conducted an exam.

“The first thing I thought was, ‘I am getting, I am really getting old because these young doctors look younger every year,” Dr. Kent said.
