Lauderhill dentist accused of forging oxycodone prescriptions – Sun Sentinel

A Lauderhill dentist is accused of using his business partner’s prescription pad to get oxycodone, officials said.

Joseph Gorfien, a partner at dental practice Gorfien & Jacobsohn, was arrested Wednesday after an investigation by Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Office of Statewide Prosecution, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Broward Sheriff‘s Office.

Authorities said that Gorfien used Henry Jacobsohn’s professional license information and prescription pads to forge and fill prescriptions for oxycodone without his partner’s knowledge.

When a reporter called the dental practice Wednesday, a recorded message said the office was closed for the day.

Gorfien is charged with 11 counts of purchase of oxycodone, one count of obtaining controlled substances by fraud or forgery and one count of criminal use of personal identification information.

The Attorney General’s Office of Statewide Prosecution will prosecute the case.

  1. What a shame, Everyone knew it but they wouldn’t talk about it.
    Even his own partner was aware but it was like a marriage. I went there for 29 years and recently discovered by mentioning to Henry that his partner needed help. The entire office including his office staff knew how bad it was. The worst part is especially his girlfriend Keri who was also a part of the drug usage was so hooked on the meds it know looks like they found a way to feed their habits.
    I spoke with a 91 year old woman name Lucy …… a couple of weeks ago leaving their office almost crying over the $1500.00 cash for a crown he robbed her for which was not necessary for her to even have one,. And still to this day she does not have her crown.
