Dr. Eugene Gosy was arraigned Wednesday in U.S. District Court where he pleaded not guilty to 114-count federal indictment charging the Williamsville pain doctor with illegally issuing controlled substances, conspiracy and fraud.
The doctor, who has between 8,000 to 10,0000 patients, was released on $250,000 bond that will be secured by the equity in his personal home.
The court ordered a number of stipulations for the doctor's release including:
- Posting $250,000 bond
- Surrendering his passport to the attorneys
- Prohibited from international travel
- Prohibited from having firearms
- Restricted to the area covered by the U.S. District Court
- Must refrain from alcohol and drugs
- Not allowed to possess any controlled substances
- Must be available for drug and alcohol testing
- Surrendering his DEA license for the prescription of controlled substances
- Not allowed to prescribe, or collaborate with others, in the prescription of regulated medications
In return, Dr. Gosy is allowed to continue practicing medicine. He can prescribe pain medications, like epidurals, but he cannot prescribe any Schedule 2, 3 , 4 or 5 controlled substances such as opioid painkillers.
Due to the large amount of evidence that has to be digitized and shared between the attorneys, opening oral arguments are not expected until May 2017.
Defense Attorney Joel Daniels told the court that Dr. Gosy is hoping to keep his Williamsville practice going, but at some point in the future, the neurologist might decide to work at another facility or hospital.
Since the indictment was announced, 7 Eyewitness News has heard from a number of the doctor's patients who paint different pro and con pictures of what was happening under the doctor's care.
