WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.  — A judge ordered a teenager accused of being a fake doctor to take a mental health exam after new charges accusing him of stealing over $34,000 from an 86-year-old patient were filed.

Multiple media outlets report Judge Joseph Marx ordered Wednesday that 18-year-old Malachi Love-Robinson could be released provided he undergoes the examination by Friday.

He is now accused of making a house call to an 86-year-old woman who suffered from severe stomach pain.

Investigators say he sold the woman phony vitamins.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office arrested Love-Robinson Tuesday, saying he stole her checkbook and spent $34,504  to pay auto loans and credit cards.

Love-Robinson made news last month after he was charged with impersonating a doctor. Detectives say he opened an office and examined patients.

He denies the charges, saying he never said he was a medical doctor. He claims to have a doctorate from the Universal Life Church, which sells them online for $29.95.
