Jan Adams: The Worst Doctor in the World

by at . Comments

Jan Adams is a worse doctor than Britney Spears is a mother.

Seriously. As TMZ outlines, the surgeon who performed plastic surgery on Donda West a day before her death was that bad at his job. Not to mention life.

Sit back and get comfortable, as we recount all the ways in which Dr. Jan Adams is an awful human being:

- In a malpractice suit from December 2005, Bonita Hovey claims Adams "failed to give the plaintiff proper preoperative and postoperative follow up care ... " resulting in a "postoperative infection" that caused her to undergo two surgeries to remove sutures and revise her scar."

Adams also made a "false assertion that he was a board certified plastic surgeon." He's not.

- In another lawsuit, a patient of Dr. Jan Adams claims he got her drunk after surgery, had intercourse with her and got her pregnant. No, seriously. TMZ has the documents and everything.

Teana Lucas claims the doctor agreed to perform liposuction on her upper arms and abdomen. The plaintiff, an aspiring model and actress, alleged as the procedure was about to begin, Dr. Adams "whispered in plaintiff's ear that he 'loved' her, that he was 'going to marry her."

On November 24, 2004, the suit alleges Dr. Jan Adams told her she should get dressed and that he was taking her out for dinner. After three glasses of wine, the heavily-medicated plaintiff claims she was "heavily intoxicated."

That's when, according to the suit, Dr. Jan Adams took her to his house and had sexual intercourse with her.

Lucas claims she got pregnant and Dr. Adams wanted her to keep the baby, but she refused. Eventually, she says Dr. Adams referred her to an OB/GYN who could "take care of the problem."

Lucas also claims he botched her two surgeries. She sued for sexual battery and malpractice.

- In 2002, Adams' girlfriend files for a restraining order against him. In the papers, Deborah Pratt stated the"Defendant has an unfortunate drinking problem and unless restrained immediately, will assert the worst side of his 'Jekyll and Hyde' personality when he is intoxicated."

She continued: "Defendant is very attached to my children and he has been abusive when intoxicated in their presence, so he must stay away from them, also."

- In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Lori Ufondu claims that in 1996, she underwent breast augmentation by Dr. Adams. In 2003, she underwent revision surgery by another doctor, who discovered that a surgical sponge was left there, allegedly by Dr. Adams.

Ufondu claims the sponge and its belated removal caused a distortion in her appearance, creating a deformed right nipple, a puncture wound, loss of sensation and "horrific scar tissue."

Following Dr. Adams' surgery, Ufondu claims she was feeling "sharp, needle-like pain in the area of this scar tissue." She says she complained to Dr. Adams, who allegedly responded "by laughing in a derisory fashion, claiming that the pain would subside."

Ufondu obtained a judgment in excess of $100,000. Her lawyer tells TMZ the Doctor has not paid and he's trying enforcement the judgment. Her lawyer adds that there are several outstanding judgments against Dr. Adams, who has ignored his obligation to pay.


Correction: The man who said Adams had a life-threatening illness was on Dr. Phil, not Adams himself.


Does anyone remember when this quack went on Dr. Phil? Apparently, someone purporting to take Adams' side (I can't remember his name) said that Adams had a life-threatening illness, but that he couldn't talk about it. I also recall that after Adams was thrust into the spotlight, one of his patients remarked that he had lost a lot of weight, to which the doctor said "I'm dying". That was 4 years ago. Wouldn't we have heard about his death by now? Does anyone have anymore details about this? Something's a bit off. He likely lost weight due to anxiety after being caught, not from some vague terminal illness.


STOP GETTING UNNECESSARY SURGERY PEOPLE! I do not have sympathy for you or your sob stories. Your vanity and reckless approach to your insecurities are YOUR OWN FAULTS. If you try to look like someone you are not.. there is a decent chance you will not get what you want and possibly even become deformed. Plastic surgery is the most inane, foolish procedure anyone can do. I cannot believe I share a country with people who would opt for such miraculous stupidity. You almost DESERVE to learn this lesson the hard way for putting yourselves into harm’s way unnecessarily. STOP IT.


My once beautiful wife's face was completely destroyed by the Evil and unethical Richard Ellenbogen of the show Dr. 90210. When she consulted with reconstructive surgeons around the country, she met numerous others who had also been mutilated and deformed by this reckless, greedy, monster. What people don't realize is that any quack can get on TV and on Oprah including Jan Adams, Michael Evan Sachs and Brad Jacobs -- all addicts who have finally lost their medical licences. Bad doctors often hire publicists to get them on TV and to get fame b/c that is really the only way for them to get patients. If you type Ellenbogen into rip off report.com -- you can see pics of patients he deformed


I and many others vote for Richard Ellenbogen of Beverly Hills Body as the tie with Jan Adams for Worst and Most Evil Doctor in the Universe. Many of us were deformed and mutilated by Ellenbogen, the fame and money hungry quack who, in my opinion, is also an alcoholic/sociopath.


i don't understand how a man can be so heartless about all the woman that he has hurt.


I was a disafied patient from Adams if you contact me I will give the story, I have the documentation.
