Typically a news story featuring a Florida teen involves meth, or an alligator, or an alligator on meth. But this is an atypical Florida teen story and features the exact opposite of meth addled alligators: Health!
An eighteen year old from Palm Beach was arrested for practicing medicine without a license. The Howser gig was up when the teen preformed a full physical exam on an undercover agent. How was this investigation brought to the undercover police department? Did he prescribe a cup of lean to cure a cough? Was his emergency line 1-800-HotlineBling? Did he advertise his health services on Tinder? Was his name Doctor Love or something else completely ridiculous?
Yes. Yes this kid’s name was Dr. Love-Robinson! The police department was alerted of Doctor Love-Robinson, in October 2015 and they just now are getting him after nearly six more months of (possibly) prescribing “deez nuts” to patients. His Facebook page described his offices as a “New Birth New Life Holistic and Alternative Medical Center & Urgent Care.”
His profile on Healthgrades.com, gave the description:
“I am a well rounded proffessional that treats, and cares for patients, using a system of practice that bases treatment of physiological functions and abnormal conditions on natural laws governing the human body.” Which is almost a sentence. Not only is “professional” misspelled, this “doctor” doesn’t seem to grasp the fact that just saying medical terms in one massive run-on sentence is not basis for a PhD.
It goes on in a second, similar (albeit, far worse) run-on sentence, to say: “I utilize physiological, psychological, and mechanical methods, such as air, water, light, heat, earth, phototherapy, food and herb therapy, psychotherapy, electrotherapy, physiotherapy, minor and orificial surgery, mechanotherapy, naturopathic corrections and manipulation, and natural methods or modalities, together with natural medicines, natural processed foods, and herbs and nature’s remedies.”
Okay, couple of things. One: Phototherapy is light therapy, so there’s no need to list “light” as one of your special skills. Two, I can’t get passed that first part where he describes himself as “Well rounded”. He’s eighteen and pretending to be a doctor, what attributes to his well roundedness? Him balancing his fake doctor duties and his chores? He’s barely an adult and he was committing a crime as he wrote that profile, and he still had the audacity to think, “Yeah I’m a pretty well rounded guy. People will certainly trust my judgement when it comes to their bodily health.”
