A Kitchener neurologist is facing a discipline hearing before the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario for allegations he engaged in sexual abuse of patients.

Allegations levelled against Dr. Jeffrey Scott Sloka - whose practice is based at Grand River Hospital - involve three females.

The college's disciplinary hearing will examine accusations that include Sloka examined patients without any clothing or inadequate draping, and that he touched one patient sexually during her examination, including her breasts.

Further allegations stemming from a second patient accuses him of making sexual remarks during her appointments.

Additional allegations of professional misconduct were brought forward to the college by a third patient in April, alleging Sloka touched and exposed her breasts.

He will appear before a committee next year, with hearings scheduled to begin in May and continue into June.

None of the allegations have been proven.
