Dr Gerard G Goryl

In the languid coastal town of Redondo Beach, a doctor has sworn to the court that he played no part in the 3 dozen drug-related felonies he has been charged with. But police are convinced the MD had taken illegal possession of what they estimate is $2,000,000 worth of illegal pills and other prescription drugs, hidden as they found them in a Long Beach storage facility.

Doctor Gerard G Goryl, age 59, faces 19 charges of possession for the purpose of selling controlled substances; 10 charges of prescribing drugs with a restricted medical license; 3 three charges of transporting narcotics; 3 charges of illegally prescribing narcotics and sale; and one charge of possessing $100,000 or more, worth of narcotics.

Goryl, a neurologist, was already banned from either possessing narcotics or prescribing them, because of two previous cases that are still pending, according to Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Brandlin who presides over the indictment. While operating a Redondo Beach medical clinic called A Better Weigh, he was arrested in June 2014, after selling prescription drugs to undercover officers.

Goryl was arrested again on October 21, 2014, after the Redondo Beach Police Department. along with federal DEA agents,  discovered that the wayward doctor had a rented storage locker stockpiling what they believe is a half-million diet pills and prescription drugs.

He was being held on a $2,000,000 bail.

Our Observations:

The California State Medical Board – you know, that outstanding group of medical professionals whose mission statement is first and foremost ‘public safety’? They ‘reprimanded’ medical miscreant Goryl in 2008 for “failing to keep adequate medical patient records” and for prescribing medication with no appropriate medical exams.

In other words, the State Medical Board – whose names are listed below  – knew this clown was a drug-pusher for the better part of a decade:

    Nice Journalism!! Jumping to the conclusion of guilty because the authorities say so! Nice job Dick head!!!! the only crime I see so far, is that you are a journalist!!

    • “Nice Journalism!!”
      Actually, it’s EXCELLENT journalism. You need better adjectives.

      “Jumping to the conclusion of guilty because the authorities say so!”
      Do us all a favor: Point out the sentence where we said this character is “guilty.”

      “The only crime I see so far, is that you are a journalist!!”
      If that’s the only crime you see in this doctor’s story, you can’t read very well, can you?

      Pity the mental midgets who insist on firing logic blanks. Time to reload.
