Ellen Pompeo is not a doctor, she just plays one on TV. While that seems obvious, one particular medical facility didn't seem to get the memo.
Over the weekend, a Twitter user posted a photo from a New York City urgent care that shows Ellen's photo hanging on the wall. In the image, she's dressed as Dr. Meredith Grey, her character from "Grey's Anatomy." That same clinic must have a thing for fictional doctors, as there's also a tribute to Hugh Laurie's Dr. Gregory House character from "House."
"Here is an when you a 'walk in' to a #Manhattan #NewYork urgent care clinic – pics of fictional doctors on examination room wall," the Twitter user wrote. "Waiting to hear, "…paging Dr. #Grey, Dr. #House…""
The picture quickly went viral as Twitter wondered if the person, seemingly in need of medical attention, went through with the visit. Even Ellen chimed in.
"Grab your stuff and get the hell out of there," she responded alongside two cry-laughing emojis.
The clinic presumably has real-life doctors. Then again, maybe a TV doctor is better than no doctor at all?
