A Florida Teen Opened a Clinic and Tried to Bluff His Way Into a Medical Career
As it turns out, you need a substantial amount of schooling to become a medical doctor. 18-year-old Florida teen Malachi Love-Robinson has been arrested for trying to skirt around that fact by simply impersonating one. According to the Charlotte Observer, this case is connected to a mysterious teen wandering the halls of a West Palm Beach hospital dressed as a doctor one year ago.
This time it seems that he opened his own clinic. He went under the name Dr. Malachi A. Love-Robinson PhD, HHP-C, AMP-C according to his profile on the website for his clinic the New Birth New Life Medical Center and Urgent Care LLC.
For those of you unfamiliar with medical certifications, HHP-C and AMP-C mean... nothing. But they do help him sound important!
The website for the clinic he allegedly started is still active. It even has a picture of the doctors who work there that are definitely real people and not at all people dressed as doctors in a stock photo.
Love-Robinson is charged with practicing medicine without a license and is being held on $6,000 bail at the Palm Beach County Jail.
UPDATE: Love-Robinson is out on bail and has done a very evasive interview:
