Still another in a long line of Los Angeles-area physicians has been found guilty of outright drug-dealing, according to the L.A. County District Attorney. Doctor Gerard Geoffrey Goryl of Redondo Beach was convicted last week of Narcotics Trafficking.
Goryl, a 61-year-old neurologist, chose not to contest the 38 felony charges, which included criminally prescribing controlled substances, as well as criminal possession for sale, of controlled substances.
Investigators discovered that Goryl – along with another fool named Will Arvizo, age 69 – owned and operated a sham medical clinic called A Better Weigh on Artesia Boulevard in Redondo Beach. Undercover investigators posing as “patients” were routinely able to buy drugs such as Xanax and hydrocodone with no medical need and with no physical exam performed.
Goryl was arrested October 21, 2014, after Redondo Beach Police and the DEA discovered he leased a public storage locker full of narcotics.
The daffy drug-pushing doctor is scheduled to be sentenced in the first week of January to at least 4 years in prison, according to a D.A. press announcement
Arvizo could get an 8-year state prison term.
