The Facebook page of Malachi Love-Robinson has already been deleted in the wake of Malachi’s arrest for impersonating a doctor, but portions of the Facebook pages of Malachi A Love live on in Google’s cache. In one Facebook note posted on February 11, at 11:07 a.m. from West Palm Beach, Florida, Love wrote that he had cancer and also had his identity stolen.
“Dear Facebook Friends and Family,
For 3 months now I have been battling stage 2 Kidney Cancer. It has been a rough journey and hopefully a light is soon to show. Along with that identity theft has began [sic] to surface and now I’m fighting that. Patients of NBNL and Friends and Family, Take care of your self and your family including your finances and your Health and Life. This illness has given me a huge wake up call. Although I trust my colleagues fullest and I am in great faith that I’ll be ok always remember that Life can be very short so make the best out of it.”
According to WPBF, that is the Facebook page Malachi Love-Robinson used to try and make others believe Love was an actual medical doctor, even if Malachi claimed that he wasn’t trying to pass himself off as a medical physician.
In another Facebook post from Love, Malachi went on to describe the difference between a medical doctor and a naturopathic doctor, the latter of which Malachi claimed to be as he stumbled through the WPBF interview and spoke about all the exams he took. Love also claimed he never reached in anyone’s uterus and pulled out a baby. Malachi adamantly pronounced that he would continue to set up medical offices.
“A naturopathic physician (ND) attends a three or four-year, graduate-level naturopathic program and is educated in all of the same basic sciences as an MD, but also studies holistic and nontoxic approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. A naturopathic physician studies clinical nutrition, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology, and counseling. A naturopathic physician takes rigorous professional board exams so that he or she may be licensed by a state or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice physician.”
Love-Robinson was arrested on Tuesday, February 16 on charges of impersonating a physician after an undercover sting operation caught Malachi giving medical advice and practicing medicine without having a medical license. His New Birth, New Life Alternative Medicine and Urgent Care Clinic also had a Facebook page that positioned it as a place where folks could find urgent care.
This above photo from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Department displays Malachi after his arrest. It’s a photo of Love-Robinson that looks much different than the photos on his center’s Facebook page, with Malachi sporting a white doctor’s coat in many photos as Love is surrounded by staff members.
Malachi was arrested, and later released on bail, after Love-Robinson dolled out medical advice and gave a medical exam to the undercover agent from the Sheriff’s office. That female agent reported that Malachi performed certain actions that a medical doctor would perform, including taking her blood pressure and her body temperature. Love-Robinson also employed the use of a stethoscope to listen to the woman’s lungs and told her she wasn’t ill. That’s when Malachi was arrested.
Amazingly, it isn’t the first time that Love-Robinson has been in trouble for acting like a doctor. Love-Robinson also posed as a doctor last January, when the teenager made the news for being in an examination room with a pregnant woman at St. Mary’s Medical Center. Love had roamed the halls — and even entered the rooms of patients — wearing doctor’s paraphernalia for more than one month before Malachi’s ruse was discovered.
Love-Robinson claimed others were just trying to make him look crazy.

Love’s website claimed he had degrees such as a Ph.D. and an “HHP-C” and “AMP-C.”
