The San Pedro Sun is reporting that island police are looking for a man who pretended to be a medical Doctor.

The newspaper reports that the man, 31 year old Eli Lopez was volunteering at the San Pedro Poly Clinic II - where he was only supposed to take vital signs - but somehow he earned a public reputation as being a Doctor - and acted as such - allegedly treating at least two separate persons on the island.

According to the Sun, San Pedro police are looking for Lopez as part of their investigation and to verify if he possesses any documentation as a medical practitioner. He is believed to have left the island.

Eli Lopez wanted for impersonating a medical doctor

According to San Pedro police, Dr. Laurenzco Nicholson visited the station and told police that on July 27th, he visited the station to treat a person who had been detained. While with Dr. Nicholson, the detainee kept making reference to one “Doctor Eli Lopez,” and said that he had previously been treated by such person. The detainee was taken to the clinic along with Dr. Nicholson where they saw Lopez who the detainee identified as the doctor who had treated him. According to police, Lopez told Dr. Nicholson that he knew Dr. Javier Zuniga, who is also attached to the clinic.

Dr. Nicholson told police that on September 13th, when he reported to work, he saw Lopez dressed in full scrubs (clinic outfit) taking vital signs (blood pressure) and immediately informed Dr. Zuniga that Lopez was the same person some local residents claimed to be a medical doctor. Other information received indicated that Lopez was also signing documents for people who were applying for driver’s licenses, pretending to be a doctor. Closer observation made into Lopez indicated that he was also reporting erroneous readings of patients’ vital signs. Police said that in a meeting with the management of the Poly Clinic on August 31st, the issue of Lopez was discussed and clarified that he was just a volunteer and was only allowed to conduct vital sign readings.
