I HAVE ONE SENTENCE TO SAY TO YOU THERE WERE MANY VICTIMS AND WHAT PART OF HIS TAPED CONFESSION DID YOU NOT HEAR?:)

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.

X dr Udani was not to brilliant when he chose to ruin his own career with his addiction to young woman

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.

Yes judgement day God saw him and he will also be judged then that makes me sleep very well at night

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.

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?

The eight manic posts in a row from "Justice Served" -- along with her multiple Biblical references to Judgment Day and God -- suggest to me the misguided, uninformed and vengeful nature of the religious clique that has targeted and ganged up on a very successful doctor with a non-Christian faith and a dark complexion.

I am surprised that his bail is only $ 500K. Similarly other medical practioner offenders have had their bail for a les hedious crime in excess of $ 5.0 Million. I cannot understand how some people can make comments that it wasa one sided trial. He confessed in court that he had consensual sex with his patient. He had comitted similar crime in 1989 and previously in Chicago or Philadelphia in 1980. I was also at the trial for most of the time, only person who was somber about the issue was his wife. Mahendra Udani was smiling and wandering his eyes all over the court room with his glassy eyes. He is enjoying life in his multi-million dollar house and enjoying a nice game of golf and tennis with his millionaire neighbors. I hope that the High court judge supoenas all recors from 1975 and have jurors who are not from local south bay. He needs to be sentenced for at least 10 years and pay his victims for damages

Why is this man's name not registered by The Palos Verdes Police as a sex offender?
He may be a great doctor, but he also had a weakness for beautiful women who were sedated. How can a respected doctor with a beautiful family even have consented sex with a patient in the consulting room? Is that what Medical ethics is all about. Speeding to do a procedure gave him time to perform his notorious pleasure. The Lord have mercy on his family and hope that the High Court judge reviews teh history of this doctor

"He confessed in court that he had consensual sex with his patient."

That makes no sense. If sex was consensual, there would be nothing to confess. There is no crime in consensual sex.(Do you understand what the word "consensual" means?)

I heard that the D.A. has decided to drop the charges and is preparing to charge the scam group with fraud. After the recent investigation, one of them confessed apparently and has agreed to a plea bargain--unbeknownst to the others.

The others in this bizarre Xtian clique will be charged this summer.

By the way, why are all members of the anti-Udani crowd such poor spellers or ALL CAP TYPERS? If you were all a little brighter, you might have been able to get away with this fraud. As it is, the plan has backfired.

Perhaps you can take English classes while incarcerated?

If only it were efficiency! Sadly it was abuse of patients confidence and poor medicine. He over medicated and then would not wait for the drugs to take effect instead relying on the amnesic effect of the medication to take away the memory of the pain during the procedure. There is nothing wrong with making money. There is something wrong with doing a procedure so fast it is painful,not safe and not thorough. His patients who love his bedside manner would be appalled by how they were treated during a procedure.

According to a nine-year study conducted by former Purdue sociologist Eugene J. Kanin, in over 40 percent of the cases reviewed, the complainants eventually admitted that no sexual assault had occurred Archives of Sexual Behavior, Vol. 23, No. 1, 1994). Kanin also studied rape allegations in two large Midwestern universities and found that 50 percent of the allegations were recanted by the accuser.

Kanin found that most of the false accusers were motivated by a need for an alibi or a desire for revenge.

Kanin's findings are hardly unique. In 1985 the Air Force conducted a study of 556 rape accusations. Over one quarter of the accusers admitted, either just before they took a lie detector test of after they had failed it, that no rape occurred. A further investigation by independent reviewers found that 60 percent of the original rape allegations were false.

The most common reasons the women gave for falsely accusing rape were "spite or revenge," and to compensate for feelings of guilt or shame (Forensic Science Digest, vol. 11. no. 4, December 1985).

A Washington Post investigation of rape reports in seven Virginia and Maryland counties in 1990 and 1991 found that nearly one in four were unfounded. When contacted by the Post, many of the alleged victims admitted that they had lied.

Forcing accusers to submit to lie detector tests often proves very useful in determining the truth in cases like this one. If this case is re-tried, look for accusers to be required to submit to such a test.

That would be fantastic..a lie detector test for the patients x dr udani raped and abused..except no need he admitted to it on tape..saying it was that both parties wanted it...but you see the patients medical records also indicate she was heavily drugged by udani and he admitted to the affect that would have on rendering his victim helpless..and why dont you look up the report of why she was in the hospital and see if you could want sex with that condition ..it is all in the report ...I think the author of that study is Dr Udani himself or his son..give it up you were busted and the medical world is aware of you and you are no longer a Dr but a sexual child molester
