Do you know of any doctors or have you ever visited a doctor who seemed just far too young to actually be a reputable licensed physician?
I remember seeing this movie called, “As Good As It Gets”. There was one great scene in which Helen Hunt was complaining to Jack Nicholson about the doctors that treated her son. In particular she complained they looked like “teenagers”.
Well, I wanted to ask if you have ever been surprised when visiting a doctor for the first time (or just being introduced to a doctor for the first time) because they may have appeared so young to you that you may have thought someone was just fooling with you.
In particular, do you think that if you ever made an appointment with a doctor and you saw them for the first time and they were really 18 years old … would it be possible that they could have fooled you?
Or, would it be possible they could have passed for a doctor had they adopted a sufficiently good air of confidence and/or competence?
Here is a story that may influence you before going to visit a new doctor for the first time.
"Florida teen arrested after posing as doctor, opening medical practice".
I’m just wondering if this kid did this perhaps because he may have had some unusual sexual fantasies that he could never have indulged with women his own age and he couldn’t afford to hire professional sex workers either.
At any rate, it all just seems so improbable to me. But then, I’m left scratching my head and wondering if some 18 year-old could ever have fooled me.
