Patient to Dr. Adams -- You Botched My Boobs!

11/13/2007 3:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained yet another malpractice lawsuit against Dr. Jan Adams, in which a patient claims she was deceived by Dr. Adams and Euclid Outpatient Surgery Center, because no one told her about all the malpractice claims against the doctor.

In a suit filed in Orange County Superior Court, Jana Beighle claims she went in for "a left breast capsulectomy." She says Adams was her doctor, and she was never told he "had an undisclosed history of medical malpractice claims and judgments."

The suit claims after the surgery in August, 2005, Beighle suffered from fluid collection and had to have her implants removed.

Too bad.    

I am sorry for this woman's experience, but it is up to us as consumers to do our research. There are ways to research doctors.

TMZ, you need to change the File name to "Let's Get This Party Started." That's exactly what's happening. You guys might find yourself in a middle of a lawsuite convicting this man on your website so early. For your sake, hopefully all of your "reports" on the Dr. are true. But I'm hoping they are not for Kanye's family sake. I do agree that he does need to be investigated to find out exactly what happened. When there is a death involved, it is serious.

I'm with Michelle. An MD does not have to disclose malpractice suits. Up to you to research that end.

When will people stop risking their lives for such vein purposes? There is ALWAYS some level of risk with any surgery. If your reason for surgery is purely cosmetic, then you need to rethink your priorities. Life with an imperfect body and true-to-yourself spirit or death in attempt to enhance your outer appearance? Nothing could make me risk death for such unnecessary purposes. Poor Kanye’s mom, as smart as she was, doesn’t get to live her life because of surgery that was purely cosmetic. It’s a shame. The 7 deadly sins strike again!

I work in the healthcare field and if a patient does not ask these questions, a doctor is not obliated to tell a patient. It is up to the patient to research the doctor and there are plenty of places to do this for free so boo hoo to you IDIOT!

This guy does sound like a sleaze, but I think we should wait until all the facts come out in this case. As a nurse I know how common malpractice suits can be...and sometimes they are totally ridiculous. Lots of doctors have malpractice suits in their past and that doesn't necessarily mean they are bad doctors. IF they were bad doctors, the medical board in their state would surely look into suspending or revoking their license...in this doctor's case it looks like the state board wanted to do just that, but b/c of his DUIs, not b/c of his past malpractice suits...which tells me that the suits didn't indicate that he was a bad doctor.

BTW, this lady who sued him in this story sounds ridiculous. No doctor is going to disclose his past legal history! If you really want to know, look it up yourself! Take some responsibility for your own health!

Anyway, this guy could be a total sleaze, but we should wait and see all the facts!

Dr. Jan Adams, like MANY doctors, has been sued for medical malpractice. Anyone with a pen and paper can file a lawsuit. This is not the same as whether or not such former patients PREVAILED in proving their claims. Most of us have heard physicians (not only surgeons) complain that their insurance rates are sky high -- to the point of forcing some doctors out of practice -- due to malpractice litigation. We should be careful not to condemn others for merely being sued.

By contrast, his lack of board certification and DUI pleas are reason for great concern.
