Dr. Eugene Gosy Indicted

Topic:

Buffalo-area physician Dr. Eugene Gosy was indicted on April 26 on 114 charges of conspiracy to provide medications such as oxycodone and morphine without legitimate medical reasons.   Dr. Gosy is well-known among workers compensation attorneys and officials. On Wednesday, April 27, Gosy and Associates announced they were not currently seeing patients.

Ed’s Take:

To be frank, the indictment did not come as a shock to many of us who deal with workers compensation issues. However, we worry about Dr. Gosy’s current patients and the uncertainty that may lie ahead for them. Perhaps this unfortunate situation is a call for clearer standards for those prescribing such medications.
