Clearfield Doctor Accused Of Illegally Prescribing Pain Killers For Himself

Dr. Girardi

Attorney General announces arrest of Clearfield doctor for illegally prescribing pain meds for own use

CLEARFIELD - Attorney General Tom Corbett today announced the arrest of a Clearfield County doctor for allegedly prescribing drugs for his own personal use.

Corbett said that David Girardi, 30, of 241 Ridge Ave., Curwensville, allegedly wrote and filled prescriptions using the names of other people, but kept the drugs for himself.

"Our Bureau of Narcotics Investigation agents are very active in investigating medical professionals who are illegally using prescription pain medication," Corbett said. "It is a potentially dangerous situation if the person you trust with your medical care is under the influence of drugs."

According to the investigation, Girardi allegedly filled these fraudulent prescriptions at least seven different times. The prescriptions were for Percocet, Oxycodone/Acetaminophen, Lortab, and Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen. All of these drugs are controlled substances.

Girardi is charged with seven counts of obtaining a controlled substance by deceit, which is a misdemeanor.

Girardi was preliminarily arraigned before Clearfield County Magisterial District Judge Richard Ireland and released on $25,000 unsecured bail. He will be prosecuted in Clearfield County by Clearfield County District Attorney William Shaw.

(A person charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.)
