is he still out of jail?I am confused
appeal

Kansas City, MO

Hello Just,

He's out on bail right now. He will appeal the verdict. This was a one-sided trail. The judge did not allow any evidence to support the Doctor and removed a juror at delibration time because that juror was not voting guilty. By the way, I was there throughout the trail and the sentencing. I did not see one supporter for the so-called victims. The doctor had about 100 people outside the court room and his supporters wrote more than 400 letters in his favor. There is something really wrong here and you will see him win the appeal. Stay tuned!

Dr. Udani is scum. We know him from our community and he's a very shady individual. This happened to him before in Illinois and it happened again because they weren't strict with the punishment then. He's done NOTHING for society and most of his wealth comes from questionnable insurance billing. Would you send your daughter to this pervert?

I do not know the details of Dr. Udani's case, but I just want to say he really helped me when I was very sick, and in no way was there any sexual advances.

What's wrong with our judicial system? I guess because he's a prominent doctor with a prominent lawyer, he's still out. If I commited the same crime, I'd be in for a long time.

Udani is still enjoyinh his freedom and playing golf every Saturday and Sunday with his rich neighbors. Some building new homes and capitalizing on the 9/11 episode.

Dr. Udani was a great doctor who really cares for his patients. Although he was a GI specialists, my family chose him as our Family Doctor for years. He was never a predator to us. His caring demeanor surely made him more of a Prey than a Predator.
If he really did what he did to the accuser, then being convicted maybe his Judgement Day for his actions. But if the accuser is making it all up just to make money...Her Judgement day will come for ruining an innocent man's life. Greed=Karma.
If the accuser is telling the truth, then she deserves every penny she gets from this case. But if she's lying, she should be concern of KARMA because Money that comes from the wind, will pass-by so quickly. Happiness in expense of others is short-term.

I have always had my doubts about the plaintiff's claim that he molested her nine times on nine separate occasions in the hospital. Why not complain and tell him to stop after the first time (if it happened)? Or at least after the second time. Butt three times, four times...no complaint..five times, six times..all is well..seven times, eight times...uh, I thought pinching my breasts" was part of the treatment...but NINE times?? Then find a lawyer and go digging for gold?
More and more doctors are being attacked by ruthless gold-diggers this way. They now need chaperones present during exams, raising the cost of medical services for all of us.
I suspect the plaintiff will be prosecuted in the end. I don't buy a word of it.

I agree. This entire case is a travesty. A gold-digger is trying to ruin a brilliant medical career. Dr. Udani will be vindicated upon appeal.

Is that true? The woman claimed that she had been inappropriately touched on nine separate occasions, but didn't complain until after the ninth alleged incident? Unbelievable!!! There must have been some degree of compliance. Smells like a set-up to me too.

I have seen this man work. He can be kind to his patients while they are awake. When they are asleep it is something else. I never saw sexual abuse but I saw him zip through many procedures so fast it made your head spin. Speed was the biggest thing. More speed, more procedures. More procedures, more money.

So? Was he convicted for earning money? Being kind to his patients while they are awake seems like a good thing to me. Working efficiently through a procedure also seems like a good thing. Where is the crime in that?

I will never in a million years believe any of the bologna from those women. I have seen Dr. Udani for 12 years....I know how that office works and if someone were being "handled" in there - it would have been known to all the staff. I feel my life is in jeopardy now because I can't find another Dr. like him and I have family history for which I need is continuing care. Out of ALL his patients he chose 2 victims? Hardly!!! That are a team undoubtedly. Pisses me off actually! Wish I knew who they were..........
