Dr. Jan Adams -- His Appearance on "Oprah"

11/13/2007 12:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In November of 2003, Dr. Jan Adams -- the plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West's mom before her death -- appeared on an episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show."


According to his bio, Adams has made "countless appearances" on television -- including serving as host for a show on the Discovery Channel called "Plastic Surgery: Before and After."

He also co-hosted NBC's "The Other Half" with Dick Clark, Danny Bonaduce and Mario Lopez.

In response to the posting on Nov. 13 from R., Oprah is not a racist. Her staff is not just composed of black people. Matter of fact, when I went to the show, I saw more white people working there than blacks. Oprah did not have Dr. Jan Adams on her show just because he is a black plastic surgeon. And I don't believe Dr. Donda West decided to go with Dr. Adams just because he is a black plastic surgeon. But what if she did? I guess that would be her right. Your posting is disturbing because it suggests black doctors are less qualified: "Donda West just had to have herself a black plastic surgeon. And now she's dead because of it." Your statement suggests any client patronizing a black doctor will meet the same end. So now who's the racist?

It is indeed a tragedy. My deepest condolences go out to the entire West family. I especially feel sadness for Kanye because he was very close to his mom and nothing can replace that bond. I pray that Kanye will find peace within himself knowing his mother is in a better place, a peaceful place full of joy and never ending love. God Bless you all!

To Shelly who wrote that Oprah is racist (Nov 13th). Honestly, your comment is so Belligerent.Furthermore, Oprah is not where she is because of white people. IT'S BECAUSE SHE IS GIFTED, INTELLIGENT, BLACK, BEAUTIFUL AND LOVING IT!! You are giving yourself and your race too much credit! Matter of fact, you are the racist. The days of white power is over. Don't be jealous because one of the wealthiest people in the world is BLACK. BLACK IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE BEAUTIFUL!

Oprah did her "MY Favorite Things Show". Why not offer each member of the stuido audience a free plastic surgery by Dr. Jan Adams. Crazy thing is people would do it because he was good enough for the Oprah show.

Oprah's guest selection has been slipping lately. She's been putting on a lot of fake, frauds and thieves....look at Karin Stefan -- she was on Oprah....why! Then Seinfeld's wife stole that book idea from another author. Oprah is losing her credibility.

#5: ARe you serious? Why on earth are you criticizing Oprah? This man has been on EVERY television show and network, including having his own show on the Discovery Channel. There's no way someone can PREDICT a surgeon or whomever will make a mistake. Mistakes happen unfortunately in every profession.

This Dr. hasn't been on Oprah in over 4 years. He's been on the Discovery Channel for a long time. He may be a legitamate Doctor who made a huge mistake.
