COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina authorities say a man stole the identity of a physician and pretended to be a doctor, and now they're trying to see whether he harmed any of the hundreds of patients he treated.
    
Lexington County Sheriff James Metts says 48-year-old Ernest Addo of Austell, Ga., saw more than 500 patients during the past year.
    
Officials where Addo worked say they haven't found signs of improper care.
    
Metts says Addo appears to have some medical training, but is not licensed as a doctor in the U.S. He is being held in a Georgia jail. It wasn't clear if he had a lawyer.
    
Authorities refused to release the name of the doctor who was impersonated. However, a friend of Addo, Dr. Arthur Kennedy of Orangeburg, confirmed his identity was stolen.
