A Florida teen appears to have been inspired by the comedy from the 90s, “Doogie Howser, M.D.” The problem with 18-year-old Matthew Scheidt is that he was not only inspired to act like a doctor on television, he did it in real life.
Scheidt used a clerical error that provided him with a medical badge to his advantage and decided to pretend to be a doctor’s assistant at Osceola Regional Medical Center in Florida.
On Tuesday, opening statements started in Scheidt’s trial. He is facing four counts of practicing medicine without a license and two counts of impersonating a physician’s assistant, stemming from the days he spent playing doctor in a real hospital with real patients.
At the time of his offense, back in August 2011, Scheidt was 17 years old.
