    Police in Florida and officials at St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach have agreed not to charge a teenager they say posed as an OB/GYN doctor for a month.

    The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports police were called Tuesday after a patient alerted staff at the medical center's OB/GYN office that a juvenile dressed in a lab coat was inside an exam room. The patient said the lab coat had St. Mary's logo and "anesthesiology" stitched on the front.

    A security guard told police he'd seen the teen around the hospital for a month. Another said the teen entered secured areas of the hospital this week.

    The teen told police he's been a doctor for years.

    The teen's mother told police he's under the care of a doctor and is not taking his medicine.
