Kitchener neurologist has licence revoked for inappropriate behaviour

His licence was revoked in April 2019 after several former patients came forward with allegations of inappropriate behaviour.

Two former patients accused him of inappropriate behaviour in August 2017. While awaiting a hearing on the incidents, which was to take place in April of this year, a third woman stepped forward.

Sloka pleaded no contest to the allegations, which included the inappropriate touching of breasts, inappropriate comments toward a patient, and suggestions that the doctor had his patients inadequately dressed or naked.
