Important Information for Patients of Dr. Gosy

Patients Advised to Seek Treatment from Primary Care Physicians

ERIE COUNTY, NY— In the wake of the closure of Dr. Eugene Gosy’s practice, patients in need of pain management treatment are advised to proceed as follows:

  • Seek care from your Primary Care Physician (“PCP”)
  • If you do NOT currently have a PCP, seek treatment from a Federally Qualified Health Center (“FQHC”) 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

For additional information about and to find a FQHC location, visit: http://www.fqhc.org/find-an-fqhc/ and http://findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov/index.html
