Missouri authorities have suspended the medical license of a Kansas City psychiatrist for having phone sex and making other sexual advances toward a patient.

While practicing at Two Rivers Psychiatric Hospital in 2007, Kenneth Spaulding improperly embraced and kissed a female patient he was treating for post-traumatic stress syndrome, according to a settlement agreement Spaulding reached with the Missouri State Board of Registration for the Healing Arts.

Spaulding also had phone sex with the patient and asked the patient to send him a nude picture of herself by cell phone, the settlement said.

The agreement said that in 1980 a female patient Spaulding was treating for hemorrhoids performed oral sex on him.

Spaulding s three-year license suspension will be followed by 10 years of probation supervised by the healing arts board. Records show that his license had been placed on suspension twice before.

Spaulding could not be reached for comment. He is no longer affiliated with Two Rivers.
