WILKES-BARRE — There was no doctor in the house, so the judge issued a warrant.
Suspended Mountain Top physician Mark Anthony Gonsky, 60, was due to appear in Luzerne County Court on Monday for trial in connection with outstanding criminal cases.
After Gonsky failed to show, Judge Fred Pierantoni issued a warrant for his arrest, according to court documents.
Gonsky’s medical license was suspended earlier this year by the state Board of Osteopathic Medicine after an investigation determined he “presents a clear and immediate danger to the public health and safety” in the wake of several criminal cases.
His legal history includes:
• A Feb. 24 incident in which he is accused of firing a gun in the front yard of his Loop Road home after a drunken altercation with neighbors and employees at an area market. Gonsky allegedly threatened to “put a bullet” between a policeman’s eyes that day.
• On April 29, Gonsky was arrested for allegedly being intoxicated while driving an all-terrain vehicle on Route 309 in Wright Township.
• Gonsky was later charged with assault and harassment in connection with an alleged March 15 incident in which Gonsky is said to have attacked one of his own patients in his South Mountain Boulevard office.
The February incident led to an immediate temporary suspension of Gonsky’s license, but as reports about other incidents became known, the board opted to take permanent action.
