WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — A northeastern Pennsylvania doctor's license has been suspended by the state Board of Osteopathic Medicine after an investigation determined he "presents a clear and immediate danger to the public health and safety."
Sixty-year-old Dr. Mark Gonsky's medical license was suspended amid claims he showed up drunk to his practice and assaulted staff members and a patient.
The board previously suspended his license in March after he was arrested on allegations he fired a gun in his yard and drunkenly threatened to shoot a police officer between the eyes.
Gonsky remains jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility awaiting trial in several pending criminal cases including an alleged DUI, the March gun incident and an alleged assault.
Prosecutors contend Gonsky has "long-standing, severe alcohol abuse problem."
