WTF: Florida Teen Arrested After Posing As Doctor, Opening Medical Practice


An 18-year-old Florida man decided to skip college, medical school, residency and licensing then just declare himself a doctor. KTLA News reports the Malachi Love-Robinson was arrested after he gave medical advice to an undercover officer. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest on their official Facebook page as well.

Love-Robinson was cited by the state health department in October 2015 for practicing without a license, but his office was not closed down, according to KTLA. “Dr. Love-Robinson” created a Facebook page for for his office, located at 4700 N. Congress Ave., calling his practice the “New Birth New Life Holistic and Alternative Medical Center & Urgent Care.”

“Dr. Love-Robinson” had even posted an autobiography on, which read:

“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. 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.”

(I did not correct the “Drs” spelling errors left as posted on the site)

Love-Robinson was charged with “suspicion of practicing medicine without a license,” and was ordered to cease and desist along with several other citations. One would think the fact that he is only 18 and did not attend one semester of college speaks to a definite charge of practicing without a license. Did he even graduate high school?

Commenters on this ‘practice’s’ Facebook page aren’t very happy with the young man. William B Mcduffie writes, “I just saw this bastard on the news just now fucking fake ass malpractice practition [sic] I feel sorry for those that got prescriptions from this asshole.”
