Discovery Health: Dr. Adams Is Not Our Problem!

11/20/2007 7:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Jon AdamsAlthough he appeared on their network, Discovery Health wants to make one thing clear: they have nothing to do with Dr. Jan Adams.

TMZ spoke with Chris Finnegan, VP of Communications for Discovery Health. He told us, in no uncertain terms, that Adams was not a part of their family anymore. "Dr. Jan Adams has not been under contract with Discovery since 2006. New episodes of the show 'Plastic Surgery: Before and After' haven't aired since June 2007. Dr. Adams is in no way affiliated with Discovery."

Finnegan did tell TMZ that a background check was done on Dr. Adams back in 2002, but he wouldn't get into specific results of the check. He was quick to point out that of the over 250 procedures performed on the show, Dr. Adams only did 10 of them.

As to whether or not they would work with Dr. Adams again, Finnegan would only say, "We have no plans whatsoever at this time to work with Dr. Adams." Smart move.

Oh, I see...........blame the victim. If she was over 40 it should have been his responsibility or at least followed up on the fact that she should have gotten a doctor's clearance. Ignorance is no excuse Dr. Adams................and...............who says a patient was fine after 8 hours of surgery and sends them home. Wouldn't the prudent thing to have been was to keep her overnight...........no wait..............he didn't want her dying on his watch. Yes, that's right.......blame Donda. I'm just waiting for someone to bring up the race card.........oh wait........the patient and the doctor are black...........well, I'm sure someone will spin that to yell foul. I feel so sorry for her family and son. There was a really close bond there.
