Ratings for Dr. James A. Brinton
I went in to have a consultation about a few little veins in my leg, in the short time I was there he talked me out of that and talked me into what he said was smart lipo. I'm honestly not sure what it was but it excruciatingly painful and him and his daughter were arguing in the room about that fact that he wasn't sucking any fat, there was too much blood, etc... He had her leave the room and I was suddenly terrified. What had I done. My arms look horrible!! Don't know that it is fixable. He was so sweet and so kind when I first met him. Seemed like I could trust him, but back then (this was in 2009) I was very trusting, and always believed people. I was dumb and didn't pay attention to the many red flags slapping me right in the face. Once I got undressed and ready for procedure he talking about my body and how good I looked after 4 kids and was way to complimentary for a doctor. I wanted to do more about it but I am a very quiet person and had never done anything major to my body so I just thought I was stuck. I ended up going through some very hard times and getting divorced and got so caught up that I didn't do anything about it. He (almost everyone in that office) were deceiving and fake and I should have listened to the girl that ran out crying as I was waking in who told me to "stay the heck away from that place" but instead I let him tell some made up story about why she was crying and mad at them. I really was dumb and now I'm stuck with ugly lumpy arms.
Like many other patients I too had my legs ruined by Dr. Brinton. Luckily he is now in prison and can no longer hurt anyone else. I have had multiple consultations to try and fix my legs and the prognosis is not good. Each surgeon has said that they might be able to improve the damage but it can not be fixed. My self confidence is in the toilet. I can no longer wear a swim suit. If you have been hurt by Dr. Brinton please email me. I am interested in talking to you. email@example.com
Met a charming and personable Dr Brinton at the Women's conference. His assistants were pretty and pretty dumb, and just lingered with helping anyone. The service sucks there, also at Orem, and at his daughter's Elase as well. Dr Brinton may believe he himself is good intentioned, but he is flawed and unprofessional, and inappropriate. most importantly, he is NOT practiced is cosmetology: overstuffed one side of my lips, then tried to force it over to the other side so much my face got bruised. left large blobs of filling gel in my smile lines and face , and my nose bridge over the main veins by my eyes giving me migraines for days. My face was crooked and he said it was supposed to be like that! read reviews here: www.voiceofutah.blogspot.com/dr-james-brinton-keeping-utah-medicine.html Please save yourself some pain and wasted money and research where you go for your cosmetic services.
The real crooks are his daughter Carrie and her husband Matt. If anyone knows a more arrogant person than them, please post. They also own and run Elase Academy and the school is horrible. I have a friend who went there and it's not even worth the money. The courses are bad and uneducating. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE ANY BUSINESS TO ELASE ACADEMY!!! This place needs to close! They are crooks!
I don't know why we should give him a break. He ruined my body and says that is the way it should be. Now I am paying more money to get fat put back in because he took me down to skin and muscle. It looks like he has ruined countless other women. Some how we need to stop him. I even asked him for references. My mistake was believing them. They could have been family members for all I know. He was so aggressive to get my money he actually called me. I don't know why that didn't give me red flags.
I absolutely LOVE Dr. Brinton! He delivered 3 of my children and is the most kind and caring doctor I know. He would do anything to help everyone he knows. He is much better than the people in the above reviews give him credit for...he has done laser surgery on my face, botox regularly, and radius in my lips, all with wonderful results. His only downful, that I can see, is that he trusts others and goes out on a limb for them, only to get burned later. Give him a break!
