Oprah, NBC, Discovery -- What's the Deal with the Dr.?

11/15/2007 12:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The doctor who performed surgery on Kanye West's mother was booked on some big TV shows, but it appears none of the producers knew about his malpractice suits, allegations of sexual battery and physical assault, DUI convictions and pending disciplinary action before the Medical Board of California.


It took TMZ three hours to turn up the goods on Dr. Adams. So why were Oprah, Discovery Health, NBC and others in the dark? We asked for comment. Watch the piece that aired tonight on TMZ TV and judge for yourself.

All I have to say about Oprah is she promotes her kind. No offense, but it's true. A good looking successful surgeon. Book him Dano.

Great video segment! Nice work! Very Informative!

It is especially troubling that none of the shows/producers you mentioned did their homework/research before promoting Dr Adams on their programs. Perhaps this will serve as reminder to other shows/producers to do their homework/research in the future.

These shows must use the same research team who can't find rape convictions, assault convictions, and other serious felony convictions of folks who appear on "reality" shows such a Big Brother, Survivor, etc.

Don't forget the sex charges at that girls leadership fiasco in Africa too. Oprah is definitely slipping! It's as though she's not at all trustworthy.

Took me all of 3 minutes to find Dr Adams dubious history. Why did it take you 3 hours?
Maybe you had trouble finding your pacifiers?

Poor Oprah, under attack again! Maybe the old tank should check her guest's backround's a little. What a self loving reverse racist pig she is! Maybe her little whipping girl Gail will be forced to take the blame! POOR OPRAH Boo Hoo!! Self absorbed smelly Cu..!

Hey TMZ, you should also check out "Dr. 90210". He is not board certified, either!

Dog is a racist mutt!    

Sometimes TMZ can be accused of trying to make their own news and then reaping the harvest. But even though they are absolutely killing this story, I still think it's not a bad thing. Stories like this can sometimes bring positive change in needed areas. Maybe this time society and a questionable AMA can finally do something about this problem that has been around for a very long time. It's just too bad that an innocent person had to die for it.
