Man posed as doctor for 30 years

Police in Japan’s Chiba prefecture said they have arrested a man who allegedly posed as a medical doctor for about 30 years.

Yukio Hasegawa, 65, was arrested on suspicion of practicing medicine without a license under the assumed name of a real doctor…

Hasegawa allegedly told police he learned about medical treatment in 1978 by reading patients’ charts while he was working as an X-ray vehicle driver in Tokyo.

Is this a cautionary tale on reading skills or mediocre doctors?
