Mia Ro, a spokeswoman for the federal Drug Enforcement Administration in Miami, said she could not confirm or deny the existence of an investigation into Bosch or the clinic.
The University of Miami said it was conducting ‘‘an intensive review’’ of the matter but did not identify Goins by name.
Goins was ‘‘very surprised’’ to learn of the allegations raised by the New Times, according to a statement from Michelle A. White, of the Coral Gables law firm of Fenderson & Hampton, which said it was representing him.
White would not comment on whether Goins was a patient of Bosch but added that Goins ‘‘has done nothing improper either personally or as a representative of the University of Miami,’’ and denies any allegation or inference of wrongdoing.
