Dr. Adams Sued for Malpractice

11/13/2007 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a lawsuit, filed in Orange County Superior Court, claiming medical malpractice against Dr. Jan Adams.

Terrie Cage claims on June 27, 2007, Dr. Adams and another doctor "negligently and carelessly examined, diagnosed, cared for, treated and performed surgery upon plaintiff, failing to follow the standard care ..." As a result, Cage alleges she was "rendered sick, sore, lame and disabled."

A source tells TMZ Cage went in for breast augmentation, a tummy tuck and lipo.

Dr. Jan Adams, is a murderer. He has no care or concern about a patients overall health. He is all about the money. As a professional, which he is not, he was suppossed to check out his patient medical history and inform his patient of the risk. I truly do not believe that he did this. I feel this way because I personally know a former patient who was severely damaged by him in June of '06. She is still undergoing treatments and trying to recover from the damages. I had the chance to meet Dr. Jan Adams, as I drove my cousin, his former patient, to his clinic for a check up after her surgery, and he came off as being very arrogant, pompous, and unprofessional.
Had I known Kanye and his mother I would have told them both that Dr. Jan Adams is a man who totally lacks character and professionalism. My deepest sympathy goes out to the West family.
Hopefully this will be a lesson to those who feel they just have to have plastic surgery. People should always do their research before undergoing any type of surgery rather it is research on the doctor and/or the procedure.

What a shame that Dr. West didn't know this beforehand. May she rest in peace, and may her family find some comfort in their grief.

Keep digging TMZ there is a lot more about this "Doc" that we don't know yet. I have seen him on TV .Just because he appears to be a nice guy doesn't mean he is a good doctor.

Is sounds like this doctor has a bad track record. Dr. West should have consulted a highly recomemded surgeon for her procedures, especially when it comes to something as serious as liposuction, you don't want any back alley surgeon doing major surgery on you.

LOVE YOU KANYA!! STAY STRONG, TRY AND KEEP YOUR HEAD UP. I KNOW ITS HARD RIGHT NOW.

You will be kept in my prayers.

GOOD! Someone needs to be regulating the obviously dangerous surgeries that some of these surgeons perform because they are money hungry! To whatever judge hears this case: MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF THIS GUY!
