Entertainment Tonight has released a statement from Dr. Jan Adams, the plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West‘s mother Donda before her death last weekend.

“I want to first express my deepest condolences to the West family at a
very difficult time. As a medical doctor practicing in this field, I
hold sacred the bond of confidentiality that exists between the patient
and doctor. Out of respect of the West family, and the absence of
verifiable information, any comment without having first discussing
that information with the family would be unprofessional.”

Since coming forward as the surgeon involved in the case, Adams has come under significant scrutiny for problems in his past, including multiple arrests for DUI.
