Was a surgical intern under Jan. It was a pleasure to have known you. Keep your chin up!
I never had a problem with Dr. Adams. The bad publicity about him is very unfortunate and probably biased because of the celebrity status of Kanye West. I am not a woman of color and that meant nothing to me at the time and still does not. A well known Newport Beach plastic surgeon actually told me that whoever performed my surgery did a very professional job. I wish Dr. Adams well.
