If you want to practice medicine, you typically need to spend four years in undergraduate school, four years in medical school, and then spend another four years in residency. Or, you can make up your credentials as a fake doctor in South Carolina allegedly did.
It appears Ernest Addo could not be bothered with things like studying or knowing anything about medicine before he decided to work as a doctor.
Addo is accused of taking on his friend's identity when he starting practicing as a doctor six months ago at Agape Senior Primary Care. During that time, the fake doctor reportedly met with as many as 500 senior citizen patients in South Carolina, reports The Associated Press.
