Missouri Medical Board Revokes License of Psychiatrist Gerald Slonka Based on Controlled Substance Violations

November 11, 2021

On April 26, 2021, the Missouri State Board of Registration for the Healing Arts ordered that the license of Kansas City psychiatrist Gerald Slonka be revoked. Prior to the revocation, suspensions of his license had been ordered in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

The current revocation order was based on Slonka's violation of various drug laws and regulations:

  • He unlawfully possessed controlled substances not prescribed to him;
  • failed to use an appropriate form or sign a digital order when taking possession of and distributing schedule II controlled substances; and
  • failed to maintain proper records, receipt and/or inventory of the controlled substances he possessed and distributed.

In addition, he did not maintain a controlled substance administration and dispensing log separate from patients’ charts, and failed to provide adequate controls to detect and prevent the diversion of controlled substances into unauthorized channels. The Board found the discipline imposed necessary to protect the public.

Slonka, M.D., April 26, 2021.
