A former emergency room doctor is surrendering his medical license and facing six months of home detention for obtaining controlled substances for his girlfriend.

Daniel C. Gillick, 63, of Youngstown, previously pleaded guilty to obtaining controlled substances by fraud and health care fraud.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy C. Lynch and Maura K. O’Donnell said Gillick, an emergency room physician at Schuyler Hospital, devised a scheme that allowed his then-girlfriend, Christine Guilfoyle, to receive a prescription for Dilauded.
