Warrant Out for Dr. Adams

11/16/2007 4:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Dr. Adams just arrived at the hearing -- late. The warrant has been recalled. The hearing is set to start at 2:00 PT.

An L.A. County Superior Court judge has issued a warrant for Dr. Adam's arrest, because he didn't show up for a hearing today.

Lori Ufondu sued Dr. Adams and won a judgment in excess of $100,000, after he left a sponge in her following surgery. Ufondu's lawyer told TMZ Dr. Adams hasn't paid.

Today, Dr. Adams was ordered to appear at 8:30 AM in San Pedro, Calif., for a "judgement debtor" examination hearing, in order to establish where he had assets. The doctor was a no show, and the judge issued a $30,000 civil warrant.

Dr. Adams operated on Kanye West's mom the day before she died.

The Sponge lady will never get her 100,000!

This doctors patients will never stick with him after a week of death, lawsuits, ex wifes, girlfrieds and everybody else coming out to say a bad doctor.

This man will never work again, so that poor sponge lady will never get her CASH!

#4 - this is not about Kanye's mother - it's about a lady who sued Dr. Adams and got a judgment against him.

By the way, TMZ - judgment does not have an "e" in the middle of it.

oh jeez...prolly another suicide caused by TMZ's relentless coverage of someone not worthy of the coverage to begin with.

Let's face the facts here...and believe me, Kanye has my deepest sympathies on the loss of his wonderful, beautiful mother...but she was told 'no' by other surgeons. She went to someone else who said I'll do it for you.

If women would finally come to grips with the fact that there is such a thing as self love based on our accomplishments instead of how we look, things such as this could be avoided. Dr. West was a highly educated, well respected woman and educator...why did she feel she needed the surgery? Thanks to a society that still bases one's worth on their weight and size.

just wondering    

....his life is over now as he knew it...he may very well have had no fault with Dr. West ( but then again she should have NEVER been sent home after being operated on for 8 hrs...if this is true)..so I take that back...all this other stuff in his big LA closet coming out ...he is lcuky if someone hires him to decorate a hamburger!!!!!!!!....he must be running really scared about now..can't get any worse for him.

I've seen Dr. Adams on his Discovery Health show (bet we won't be seeing that anymore, especially with him as host). He looks so polished, so suave. But it seems he is just a dressed-up dirt bag. Pretty on the outside... Looks like he'll be trading in his Armani suits for prison garb. A lot of stuff catching up to him.

Why would he or any doctor perform medical procedures on a middle-aged woman without medical clearance from an internist?!! Why take a knife to ANYONE without knowing their medical history?!! Why was Donda West cut up, wrapped up and sent home?! Done.

Even pets get better follow up treatment!

I think its terrible what happened to her. But what I think is even worse is that he has a huge history and now that he's done something to a "HIGH PROFILE" celb relative its made public and something is being done about it. What about all the other people?

Dr. A-hole, please, just end it all by jumping off that tall Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro. Over the past week, I have read so many posts from people in denial - who still staunchly support you because you are a brotha - that I am resigned to the fact you belong in the Hall of Shame. (imprisonment)

By the way everybody - I, personally worked with Donda West in the past; she was of average intelligence and very nice lady. Her devotion to her son was her asset. Do not fault her for her tragedy because she sought a second opinion. In her case, the first opinion was the right choice. As for the lady who is seeking this judgment against the doctor, even if you never collect a dime, you are a hero for persevering against that menace to society.
