KITCHENER, ONT., NEUROLOGIST ACCUSED OF SEX CRIMES
October 18, 2019
A disgraced Kitchener neurologist accused of sexually ravaging scores of female patients will remain in jail.
Bail was torpedoed for Jeffrey Scott Sloka, 51, in a Kitchener courtroom Thursday, The Record reports.
He will remain in protective custody at Maplehurst jail.
Previously, Sloka had been pummelled by fellow jailbirds.
He’s accused of sexually assaulting 34 women who were under his care from 2010 to 2017.
He was arrested Sept. 24 by Waterloo Regional Police.
According to The Record, the doctor had an office at Grand River Hospital coupled with privileges at St. Mary’s General Hospital.
But on April 30, the troubled doctor was in the hot seat in disciplinary action by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.
Sloka’s license was revoked and he agreed to never practise medicine again.
The K-W doc is the subject of a whopping 22 probes by the college.
He pleaded no contest.
“Those patients were exploited and deceived by Dr. Sloka for his own sexual purposes,” college prosecutor Morgana Kellythorne said in April.
According to The Record, Sloka eyed just the floor as the list of his alleged victims were read out.
One former patient told CTV News she was referred to Sloka because of nagging migraines.
The college investigated, she said.
“I’m speaking out because I want other women to know that it’s okay to come forward, it’s okay to share your story,” she said at the time.
