(NYDAILYNEWS) — Just like Doogie Howser, this teen doctor wasn't real either.
A 17-year-old boy dressed in a white lab coat, face mask and stethoscope around his neck told West Palm Beach police he was a doctor at St. Mary's Medical Center and had been practicing for years, according to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun.
But Dr. Sebastian Kent and several nurses immediately contacted police Tuesday after seeing the young man — who isn't much older than the fictional TV character Doogie Howser — when he entered their OB/GYN office.

"He presented himself with a patient of our practice and introduced himself as Dr. Robinson," Kent told TV station WSVN. "The first thing I thought was, 'I am really getting old because these young doctors look younger every year.'"
