Police officers apprehended a juvenile who was allegedly posing as a doctor for over a month at a West Palm Beach hospital, states a January 15, 2015, Sun Sentinel article. According to the article, the police were called when a patient notified staff that a young male who "appeared to be a child" was dressed as a doctor and was inside an exam room at the medical center's OB-GYN office. The boy, who was wearing a white lab coat with the hospital's logo and carrying a stethoscope, told police officers that he had been a doctor for years and that his family could vouch for him.
