In the state of Pennsylvania a physician admitted in court this week that he did indeed beat up one of his patients, and he did threaten to kill a police officer. He pleaded guilty to making Terroristic Threats.
Doctor Mark Gonsky, age 61 of the city of Mountain Top, seemed to have a penchant for serious mischief last year. His legal troubles started in February 2013, when he was arrested him for bullying business people while drunk. Afterwards he threatened to “put a bullet between a police officer’s eyes” and fired off a handgun in the yard of his Fairview Township home.
While out on bail in April, Gonsky was handcuffed and taken away again, this time for drunk driving on a state highway. And he was arrested yet again in December and jailed for not showing up to court for his first arrest.
It was about this time that Wright Township police learned that he had kicked a disabled patient in the back while drunk at his medical clinic earlier in the year. After the victim testified, medical maniac Gonsky confessed and was found guilty of Assault.
Gonsky MD was given a suspended sentence of 18 months in prison and was released, as according to the judge he had already spent 200 days in jail.
The Pennsylvania Board of Osteopathic Medicine has suspended Gonsky’s medical license:
- Action Taken: Suspension
- Summary: Mark A. Gonsky, D.O.; License # OS005105L; NATURE OF COMPLAINT: The Screening Committee of the Pennsylvania State Board of Osteopathic Medicine found probable cause on several counts that this osteopath presents a clear and immediate danger to the health and safety of the public. ACTION TAKEN: The Pennsylvania Board of Osteopathic Medicine temporarily suspended the osteopath’s license pending a hearing.
We’ll see how long that lasts.
