The Erie County Health Department is advising patients of Dr. Eugene Gosy who need help to seek treatment from their primary care physician.

Dr. Gosy's practice is now closed until Monday, May 16th. He was recently indicted on hundreds of counts related to health care fraud.

If you do not currently have a primary care physician, you should seek treatment from a federally qualified health center that is currently accepting new patients for primary care.

To identify a dedicated pain management specialist, patients can call the customer service number listed on the back of their insurance card.

Dr. Gosy is facing federal charges, accused of illegally writing hundreds of thousands of prescriptions for pain medication.
