Dr. Jan to Larry: I'm Almost Ruined!

Dr. Jan Adams lasted longer than 90 seconds last night on "Larry King Live" -- though due to breaking Heath Ledger news, his interview was again cut short.

The doctor, who performed cosmetic surgery on Donda West before she died, said he needed a second chance to defend himself -- even stating that the West family attorney agreed with his decision.

Adams, who referred to himself in the third person, also responded to criticism that he shouldn't be practicing cosmetic surgery without being board certified, and explained his credentials. King invited Dr. Jan back for a full hour.

TMZ tried to get the doctor to say why he operated on Donda West when others had turned her down, but he had no comment.
