Dr. James Brinton - keeping Utah medicine interesting

Noticed a familiar name in a KSL story this evening: Dr. James A. Brinton, a Utah County physician. This guy is a walking headline. Ten years ago, the Utah Supreme Court upheld IHC's decision to revoke his hospital privileges based on concerns about his health care, including questions involving the death of a child. He continued to deliver babies at a less persnickety place, and branched out into laser hair removal. One of those patients suffered 2nd-degree burns, sued him and won, as verified by court records. As of a 2007 D-News article, he was the medical director of a spa that does laser hair removal and such.

A woman once told one of us that, while she was choosing an adoptive family for her newborn child, her physician Dr. Brinton told her, "I know you're going to do the right thing and give this baby to a Mormon family," and that he arranged for a priesthood blessing for her in her hospital room. (She was not LDS.) Wasn't there, can't confirm it, but ever since then, his name in the paper always catches our eye.

The latest: He was indicted this morning, along with 17 others, for an alleged illegal online prescription drug ring. But apparently he's innocent. "We talked to Dr. Brinton on the phone this afternoon," KSL writes. "He says he only supported advertising Phentermine on the Web site and would help with quality control." Well, sure, because when one thinks of "quality control," who doesn't think of Dr. Brinton?

responsible for the death of a child, he is responsible for the death of my wife's twins back in 1989, I dont think they count her on his records because she was an unwed teen at the time. and every time his name comes up for him screwing up something or someone in the medical field it drags all those emoitons of the lives that could have been! why this guy is aloud to have anything to do medically period is beyond me!!

To whom it may concern: Dr. Brinton is my doctor of choice. We share stories. Swap jokes,and laugh together. And I am NOT A MORMON. Irregardless, I am treated the same as anyone else. His bedside manner is impeccable! I have never met a doctor that is more caring,compassionate, and understanding with his patients needs. His hand is not on the door rushing out to the next patient with his mind on what's for dinner. He truly cares about women's health and needs. He is a great human being to know,and an even better doctor. He is resourceful, gentle, and kind. And genuinely loves you as a patient first and foremost, and then as a friend. He also boosts your confidence to that of a rock-star before you leave. AND WOMEN LOVE HIM!!! Sure, sometimes a tragedy can occur. As with many other doctors. These events are definitely unfortunate! My total respect and regards to the man with the twins. I am not making light of your situation certainly. My condolences to you are immeasurable. And I am sorry for your loss. I have not that type of experience to speak of with Dr. B. Of the doctors I know, Dr. James Brinton is the first on my mind when it comes to any questions, or concerns with any health issues I might have. He is professional,and committed to his patients well being. All my friends, my clients, and I love him dearly. We love seeing and visiting with him regularly. Have you ever heard of any other women excited to go see their friend for laser hair removal, botox, or lunchtime peel procedures? Yikes! Or better yet, their yearly check-up? Keep up the good work Dr. B! We are all standing behind you. Thank you for making us feel younger,and look even more beautiful over the years. It's been OUR pleasure! Much Love,Rylee & Shauna

Dr. Brinton is my neighbor. I have known him over 25 years. He has always shown the greatest capacity to love his neighbors more than anyone I've ever known. Let's get real about the medical profession. Many OB/GYN doctors are not practicing medicine because of the excessive lawsuits attached to the profession. Any doctor dealing with life and death has some failures. I will guarantee you that none of these problems was done with intent to harm or a lack of professionalism. Nowadays, people refuse to accept certain consequences that life imposes on them. They either blame God, the government or the doctor. Tragedy happens. I'm sorry it does, but it does. Bottom line, I love Dr. Brinton and his family. They have my complete devotion. I pray they will be exonerated. Joanne Wilson

Dr Brinton is an example of THE worst kind of doc there is. I worked (unfortunately) with him as a nurse when he was still allowed to deliver at Utah valley. He's rude, arrogant, misogynistic and has a list a mile long of sexual misconduct complaints. Yes, some of his "patients" do love him. As lovers. Ick. Others are apparently blinded by his "charm".
The nurses I worked with saw what he did and what he was and no one, but no one would recommend him. He's horrid, personally and professionally. He sucks as a doc and frankly, as a human being. those of you who "love" him have some serious, serious issues, IMO.

The spa associated with Dr. Brinton is called Elase Medical Spa. They are in Orem, West Jordan, and Sugarhouse.

I know first hand that he scarred my friend's face and that he has the practice of re-using Botox needles and he doesn't even practice safe medical practices like using gloves when injecting a patient.

STAY AWAY FROM ELASE MED SPA! YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!

Dr. James Brinton talks poorly about his clients behind their backs, I had the misfortune of working with him at Elase. Elase Medical Spa is a money-grubbing business owned by him, Matt Brinton, Carrie Brinton, and Dr. Brinton's daughter Emily. Please don't go to Elase, they will rip you off. Please don't get injections from Dr. Brinton, he won't wash his hands. Please don't get lasered by him, he has no idea how to address ethnic skin, skin of color, or how to set the laser to the right setting. Dr. Brinton was involved with sexual harassment suits by female clients and was involved with MD Diet on State Street in Salt Lake City, UT. Will this guy please retire and move to St. George already?

I personally worked with "Dr." Brinton as a nurse- can't say where because you never know who he may be related to - or connected to ??? He is very scary- he is also perverted in the sickest way I can think of. He gives Mormon's a bad name as well as the medical profession. Please do not ever go to him, he is unethical and he believes in his own sick mind he is doing the "right" thing- he thinks he is above the law. This man is dangerous as a physician- I have been a nurse for twenty yrs- and no one in the medical profession would ever go to him or recommend him unless they were trying to get perscriptions or some cheap botox!! There is no discount plastic surgery...check the "Dr." out that will be working on you before you let him touch you!!

Dr. James A. Brinton is a fabulous doctor. I have worked with him for several year now. And while, yes, he can be opinionated, that is to be expected of every doctor. If you are smart you will base your opinions off of real medical facts, not off of what a jaded "blogger" write. If you check the hospital, insurance and DOPL records you will see for yourself that Dr. Brinton has never lost a med malpractice law suit in his career. You can't say that for most doctors. As for Elase Medical Spas, they are THE most reputable spa in Utah. Just because Dr. Brinton has current legal issues, should not reflect on Elase. If you've seen their facilities or had treatments done there, you know that they provide services that are way beyond what anybody else in the state can do. I am a client there and I have always had great results, been treated with respect, and loved every appointment. Don't make your decision based off of a few pathetic people that have nothing better to do than slander others. You should try Elase for yourself and you'll see that they are incredible.

Elase Medical Spas, and Dr. Brinton, are phenomenal. Obviously the person that posted the comment about the "money grubbing" owners is a former employee - meaning that they probably got fired! I am a client of Elase, and love them. They provide awesome services, that are priced below every other legitimate spa. I had hair removal done in their Draper spa and loved it. I had great results, they were very nice, and were very professional. I recommend Elase to all of my friends. I think that other bloggers should not try to bring down businesses and people that they really know nothing about.

Melissa R. said...

I am a client of Elase Medical Spas and know the owners personally. They are people of the highest ethical standards, very bright and intelligent, and honest in everything they do. They have worked extremely hard to make Elase Medical Spas the premier spa in Utah. They are not simply concerned about making money, they spend countless dollars and hours evaluating their products and equipment, and training all of their staff to make sure that their clients get the very best treatments. Although Dr. Brinton owns the Orem spa, he does not manage or direct the spas, and he is not the only doctor in the spas. They have several really great professionals that treat their clients. Instead of listening to ex-employees, you should just make a quick visit into any of the Elase spas. I can guarantee that you will be impressed with them. I am a client, as well as most of my friends, and I have never heard a complaint about their staff, results, or even about Dr. Brinton. I love Dr. B and Elase.

To the originator of the Blog site. You should be more responsible when you are trying to rip somebodies life apart. At the least, you should check your so-called "facts" and the articles you reference. In your opening paragraph, you reference your friend that received 2nd Degree burns and you link to an article. That article only references a case the Dr. Brinton WON and, although it does reference a client receiving 2nd degree laser burns, that case was NOT related to Dr. Brinton or Elase Medical Spas. You also reference statements about him killing a baby. This is absolutely false - I would challenge you to produce any legitimate documentation to support that claim. Keep in mind, Dr. B is an OB/GYN. Unfortunately, there are complications that occur in that profession. It is extremely disingenuous of you to try to claim something as fact, that is nothing more than rumor. Dr. Brinton is a wonderful person, and Elase is a very reputable business. Anybody that has the opportunity of visiting their spas will know that for themselves.

Voice of Utah said...

To Richard W.: The Utah Supreme Court upheld IHC's actions regarding Dr. Brinton's privileges; that is a matter of public record. With respect to the patient with burns (not a "friend" of mine, as you say; not sure where you came up with that), I did check my facts. The court record shows that the jury found Dr. Brinton liable and awarded the woman over $100,000. I never suggested that this was while he was at his current spa; I have no idea when he joined the new place. As for a supposed reference to him "killing" a baby, there is nothing even vaguely resembling that in my post.

To the other three pro-Dr. Brinton commenters who posted at about the same time: I am glad you felt free to express your opinions, as others have. You may have noticed that there are other websites expressing contrary views.

anomonous said I thank god every day for what Dr brinton did for me and my husband,Back in 1989 I had my tubes tied and after a marriage gone bad and getting remarried I checked in to having my tubes reversed which was 12 years later and so I found Dr Brinton and he reversed them it took awhile to get pregnant but three years later I had a wonderful daughter and I thank god everyday for Dr Brinton and for my wonderful daughter.

Dr. Brinton is a wonderful doctor. Not only did he deliver me, but he also delivered 2 of my children. He always treated me with respect. He is caring & down to earth. He took great care of me & my babies. My family feels the same way. Im sorry that a few people has had bed experience with him. Surly you understand that nobody is perfect. Im sure there are Bad Doctors left and right, but he is NOT one of them.

I had my lips done by this man and it was the worst medical prodedure I have ever been through! His bedside manner is terrible. He acted arrogent, money hungry, and very brisk! During my procedure he left right in the middle of injecting my lips to go and talk another girl into getting a procedure done. When he came back to finish my lip injection he acted like he was in so much of a hurry that he quickly overfilled my lip, then told me "ops.... I think I put too much in." He then proceded to sheeze my lip so hard as to push the filler to the center of my lip. I left with huge, huge, huge amounts of visible swelling, lip and facial bruising!!! So in the end I was left with very uneven lip augmentations, extensive lip and facial bruising, more missed time from work and more money out of my pocket because I had to seek other professional treatment to finish and fix what he had started! Beware of this quick talking, sexually inapropriate, ADD behaving sellsman! Stay away from the chop shop Elase Medical Spa! I Will never, ever again let this man do another "procedure" on me. Do your reserch and go to a professional!!!! (not sure what a so called OBGYN Dr. is doing attempting to move into the cosmetic field??? I guess he had to find a new way to make money since he his IHC privliges were revoked!)

I don't know if anyone will ever see this post a year or more after the original blog entry, but I thought I'd throw my two cents in about Dr. Brinton. Twenty years ago, I went to him for my first ever gynecological exam. It was called a "premarital exam." Ick. The name itself gives me the willies.

Anyway, here are a few things he said to me:
1) He complimented me on my nice tan lines.
2) He told me that I was "all stretched out" (that was his way of implying that I was not a virgin.)
3) He told me that the sex I would have after marriage would be a lot better than the sex I had already had(why was he telling me this?)
4) He asked me if I was getting married in the Mormon temple.
5) He told me that he and his wife laid a towel down on their bed so that they didn't make a mess when they had sex.

I was very innocent at the time so it took me a while to realize how inappropriate this all was. Yuck. I googled him today because I'm visiting Utah and drove by his old office. Not surprised to hear what others have said. Disgusting.

All you people with your negative posts: I have one thing to say to you...I'm afraid for you, your judgment will be as harsh as you enjoy judging others. As much as some of you think you "know" him, you obviously do not. Dr B. is an excellent doctor, man, and friend. You all make me sick that you will sit around and slander someone like that when you really don't KNOW much about him at all, nor specific circumstances, nor is this a setting where he can properly defend your ruthless accusations. Get a life.

Dr. Brinton is a lying, heartless, jerk. A while back he lied through his teeth in court and almost got an innocent person sent to prison. He lied to cover up his greedy and irresponsible actions.

Take a look at most of the positive comments here. The all come within a few minutes of each other - from the same person.

Granted, he is someone that can be nice, personable and that you really want to like. It can be hard not to. Until he puts a knife in your back.

Anonymous said...

He is a nice man. but beware before you let him touch you. He does not know what he is doing and he does not care about the results. Before you go to him for a smart lipo or anything else, ask his prior patients, look at his criminal records, and his medical record. He does not have hospital privileges if something happens. He is sloppy, burns people, and he does not have any technique to do what he is doing. He does not care about you. All he cares about is the money. I wonder how a good church going man can be such a thief. If you want your body to look like a bubble wrap and never be able to get in a swimsuit again, then by all means go to him. Pretty soon we will not need to worry about him- he will be in federal prision.

I had a procedure done by Dr. Brinton. It was a laser liposuction on my stomach and sides. I did not find him to be rude or sexist or anything like that, in fact, he was pretty pleasant. He did seem to be in a hurry though, his assistant had to remind him to slow down several times. My main gripe is that the procedure didnt have any effect on me or my stomach, it looks just the same after the swelling went down. The same thing happened with the laser hair removal they sold me at Elase. All the hair just grew back within 6 months. So no real problem with the Dr, just the services.

Rachel said...

Dr. Brinton delivered my first child. I was a scared first-time mother and he was very kind, caring and comforting. I consider him a skillful doctor.

winkey said...

Here are the true facts. I was recommended to Dr. Brinton from a friend, at first meeting I was thrilled and really liked him. I needed some sculpting on my abs.
He was very nice and seemed knowlegable. On the day of my appointment my husband and I had some questions, he answered them nicely, but recommended that I have my legs done at the same time as to help with the "smoothing"
The procedure its self was excruciating... his assistant had to keep telling him that he was hurting me. (to no avail) also she kept telling him he was taking to much fat and was only getting blood. That still took many comments from her. My end results have been painfully disheartening, I look like I have been mutilated. Needless to say I cannot and will not be able to ever wear shorts or a swimsuit again. It seemed that as soon as he got his money he was finished with his concern for me. I am now looking for someone that can repair the damage that has been done. PLEASE find a REAL plastic surgeon to have this procedure done. If only I could go back.

I am familiar with Dr Brinton and the lawsuit filed against him for burning a woman's face. I was the plaintiff's attorney. Dr Brinton LOST the case. His insuance company paid $150,000.00. Moreover he was found guilty of violating my client's rights for going to her home and refusing to leave after she hired me.

I deal with many doctors and have great respect for them. In my opinion the State should take Bronton's medical privleges. He has hurt far too many people. I am proud of the fact that we sued him and prevailed.

Brinton delivered myself and my three siblings. He then almost killed my mother during a "routine" exam when he punctured her chest with a large gauge 16" syringe while "checking for fluids."

She was in the hospital for nearly 2 months, with a horrific infection in her chest cavity. My mother decided not to sue. I am now a lawyer and if i ever come across Brinton i won't sue him, i'll beat the living hell out of him. He's an adulterer, and ex-communicated member and his children are shit heads (my cousin dated one of his sons, a returned missionary, until she realized that he was married). Real classy group of people.

oh and the poster named "Rachel" is actually his daughter who, coincidentally, is as morally depraved as her daddy.

R & C Brinton said...

Funny how all of you who talk negatively about Dr Brinton do so anonymously. Why is that? If these things are true why are you hiding? If ANY of these allegations were true then he'd have been in prison long, long ago. People that do those things don't stay around long and Dr Brinton has been around for decades, give me a break.
Dr Brinton is one of the most giving, charitable people I know. Sexual harrassment? Are we talking about the same guy? What a joke. Yeah he got kicked out of IHC because they were upset he was treating illegal immigrants and the uninsured. Says a lot about the man that he'd risk losing his license to treat the needy and helpless. IHC is a money grubbing corporation that gets rid of the doctors that don't bring in the big bucks for them.

Oh and to whomever said "my cousin dated one of his sons until she found out he was married" is lying. Flat out lying. I'd like to talk to this person directly and know where this information is coming from cause I know both of his sons very well and that's just a flat out lie.
The internet is the biggest curtain to hide behind for losers that like to say whatever they feel like saying knowing fully well they're not going to be held accountable for the demeaning words they write. So either back up what you're going to say or just keep your peace otherwise there will be a day when you'll be held accountable for the damages caused by your remarks.

A lot of you guys don't have your facts straight. I personally dated his daughter Rachel and she is the most morally clean girl I have ever dated. She didn't even kiss me until 5 attempts and 6 months into the relationship hanging out everyday. As for Dr. Brinton, he was nice to me and seemed like a good man. Watch yourself...

Why is it that whenever a person has some sort of misfortune, every one has to jump on the band wagon??? Dr. Brinton delivered 5 of my 9 children. He was good at the time...better then the first 2 of my Ob/GYN's and not as good as the last OB/GYN. It's all a matter of personal decisions.

Melanie J said...

I went to Dr Brinton, in the early 2000's, when I was trying to lose weight and after a few visits, I swore I would be fat the rest of my life before I would ever go to his office again!!
First of all he wanted my whole family (including 4 teenage boys) to become fruit-itarians. I told him there was no way I could do that, and he said "well you must not be a very good Mom if you can’t control the food in your own house" so I would just listen to him and wait until he was done to get the pills, (which he filled the prescription in his office and I now know was illegal) and then come back in a month. One time I went with my friend and he had us go in together, he ranted and raved about how wonderful she looked and said " why don’t you take off your clothes so I can see what you look like naked" then proceeded to tell me that I could take lessons from my friend and if I had any self esteem or contol, I should be able to look like her. I had eaten only fruit for a month and worked out 6 days a week without cheating. I was so disgusted and mad I couldn’t even speak to him and swore I would never give him a dime of my money!
The reason I am writing this now is that I have a friend that has gone into his Elase clinic for a B-12 shot and he talked her into Lypo, he told her he would just do a few spots and now he has mutilated her perfect body and also tried to kiss her every time she has gone in to get it repaired. She is now suing him and called me to see if I knew anything about him. This man needs to have his license pulled and not allowed to practice medicine of any type!!!
For all of you who love him,open your eyes, he may have done some things right, but he has done more wrong!

I have no personal opinion of Dr. Brinton's professional practices whatsoever. I have had the privilege to meet his sweet wife and 2 of his daughters who I absolutely adore. They are such great kind and caring women!! I also was in their ward for 2 years and rubbed shoulders with Both Dr. Brinton and his wife. I feel bad that he has given mormons a bad name along with many many other imperfect mormons. I hope that his family is doing well and can forgive him for putting them through all this! It definitly sounds like he's been negligent and should be punished for it. But I don't feel like his family should all be labled as terrible people because of their fathers mistakes.

To the owner of this blog, and to all who feel the need to post on this blog. Dr. Brinton has resigned from his current position with Elase Medical Spas and has relinquished his ownership in this entity. He has also resigned his medical license to DOPL. Dr. Brinton is a good man that has helped a lot of people. He has also made a lot of mistakes and is now answering for those mistakes. Please respect him and his family and let them do what they need to do to.

Dr Brinton ruined my friends legs and life along with two other women we are in contact with.

He baggered her into getting lazer lipo done on her saddle bag area but went ahead and did her knees to her hips.

He went crazy on it and ruined her legs. He burned down to her muscles and ruined her fat cells and scarred her for life. She can no longer run and exercise. She has to go to therapy every morning for her legs and the tissue that was damaged beyond repair.

She was so ashamed and is ready to fight this now. Elase claims no responsibility for this. They say that they are no longer associated with this doctor, but yet they are his FAMILY!! Yes...his family runs Elase. We are trying to get some justice now. She pickets outside of the Orem Elase everyday after therapy.

If you or someone you know has been hurt by Elase, or Dr Brinton...plase contact me asap.

I say it is time for Elase to go out of business. This company was founded on the basis of a medical license which obviously does not exist now. Let's do an article in the tribune on the damage. Let's start a blog of the damage and at least protect future clients from getting hurt. There is no medical coverage. Did you read that 8.9 million per week was coming in fromthe internet scam. No wonder he was willing to surrender his home. Drop in the bucket and now that Dr.B is going to prison, the family is trying to pay off everyone in installment payments. can you believe it? The have no responsibility to the damage although they have profited millions and now changing their name to Simplicity. How much money do you think Elase is making now and is against the law without a physician. Is is ok to practice medicine without a license. I vow to put them out of business. It is time for them to be washing dishes in prison.

OK, all you people. I want you to watch and listen to
the news regarding Jim Brinton in the next few years.
Yea, he is going to prison for awhile. But, while he is
there, he will be a leader among the men. He will love them and influence them for good. If he had his way he would set up a school of sorts and teach them everything he knows. He will probably write a book that reveals something that needs to be reformed in prison life. The guy is a walking headline because you can't shut someone up who is genuinely trying to help his fellow man and woman. I don't doubt that he has made mistakes and said things that were inappropriate. However, the allegations about infidelity and deliberately stealing etc. I will never believe and accept. It's hogwash. I'll tell you what I do believe. There are a lot of angry
people who are ravenous and ready to chew up a scape goat. And the powers that be, legal and otherwise, have some individuals seeking personal glory for finding and crushing others they think are
guilty for living their lives outside of the box. I personally cannot stand by and watch anonymous writers rip and tear at a man who has lived a life filled with sacrifice and service to others. He has a large family with many grandchildren and they need to know that this man is a good, abundant guy who often gets in big trouble because he goes where angels fear to tread. Just watch him in the next few years. He will come out of this and he will shine.

I like many others was severerly damaaged by Dr. Brinton at Elase Medical via smart lipo suction. My legs are damanged and I am facing a 13k surgery to try and improve the damage that was done. The dr I am seeing anticipates I will need additional surgery. He said my legs can never be repaired - all they can do is improve the damage. I can't wear a swim suit, shorts and you can see the disfigurement through my jeans. The fat was sucked out all the way down to my muscle. I know that I am one of many people he has mamed.

If you have been injured by Dr. Brinton, please contact me at brintonpatient@yahoo.com or brintonpatient@gmail.com

Elase Medical needs to compensate those that were harmed. My first surgery to try and improve the damage he did to my legs will cost me $13,000. I know I am not alone and I should have spoken out long ago and saved others from the harm caused by Elase Medical and Dr. Brinton.

To those who continue to post on this blog. My name is Carrie Brinton and I am the owner of the Salt Lake area med spa facilities mentioned above. The statements that have been posted about me, my family and my business are completely false and I feel that at this point I need to defend myself against these lies. I am very willing to work with any client who feels they have been harmed due to my father-in-laws actions. I have never refused to help anybody who has contacted me. You are welcome to reach me at carrie@elase.com. My heart goes out to those who have been hurt by my father-in-law, but the statements that my family or my business had knowledge of his actions, or benefited financially in any way, could not be further from the truth. The reality is that my business, my family and I personally have lost almost everything due to his actions and will continue to pay for his mistakes for a long time to come. My company operates within the bounds of all state regulations, including full medical coverage. We strive to offer our clients the very best, safe, and effective treatments always. All I ask is that instead of slandering my name and my business with defamatory and untrue statements, you contact me directly and I will work with you. I am not hiding from trying to repair as much as I can. Thank you.

My name is Desi and I am a newly graduated student of Elase Academy, and employee of Elase Medical Spa. I have never known Dr. Brinton personally, but the things that are being written on here about his family and the other Elase Spas and Academy couldn't be farther from the truth! I have nothing His wife is kind,sweet, generous, and honest, and probably one of the most genuine people I've ever met. Elase Academy is AMAZING..Carrie and Matt are so involved in making sure all the students succeed and know everything there is to know about the skin care and laser profession. The Brintons are not "money-grubbing," in fact they spare no expense when it comes to getting the best of everything for the students at Elase. Whether its flying in top make up artists, or product and laser training reps for the students, or just making sure clients are always satisfied, and have THE BEST facility to come to for their treatments! I have been to other Esthetic schools and spas in the valley and NONE even come close to how amazing the instructors, facilities, employees, and education, are at the Elase locations! For anyone who is reading these horrible things being said and has never had an experience with Elase before, I beg you to give Elase a chance.. Go get a treament done at the Elase Academy, you will not be disappointed! Form your own opinions of the newly revamped Elase, and Academy, and don't be swayed by others' impossibly harsh judgements.

I was looking up Dr Brinton on google and ran across this blog and read all the reviews. I would like to say that my mom hd her eyes and lips done at Elase Spa by Dr Brinton and he messed up her eyes and she had to have many corrective teatments to fix his mistakes. The esteticians that fixed her eyes made comments like "I am so sick of fixing Dr Brinton's mistakes" in front of my mom. I told my mom to sue but to her that is more hassle than it is worth. I hope he never practices medicine again and I hope Elase Spa gets shut down.

My name is jerushah heslop. Im adopted. But my birth name is Jessica brinton. Im almost twenty. I've been looking for my birth mom for a long time. Dr. Brinton was delivering babies in the same hospital at the same time i was born. I need too find my birth relatives too get my medical history please help me if you can. You can go find me on Facebook if you have any info that might help me locate them. So far I've ran into nothing but dead ends. Please help.

Dr Brinton is the worst doctor. He shouldn't be delivering babies because he has no compassion for babies or parents.

He was my mother's doctor when I was born. My mom was in labor for 42 hours (not kidding) and Dr. Brinton and didn't check on her once! He was in the hospital most of the time. Finally, a random doctor pulled me out with forceps and I was blue and my head was smashed in. I have suffered from many problems thanks to a neglectful doctor!

WARNING: DO NOT CHOOSE THIS DOCTOR!

I was Dr. Brinton's patient many years ago. I kept telling him for weeks that something was amiss - not my 1st pregnancy. He didn't listen to my concerns, when I repeatedly told him I didn't feel well, the baby wasn't moving much, as well as other issues. Long story short - I told him my baby hadn't moved for a day - I was 8 months pregnant. He told me not to be concerned about that until 48 hours had passed. I went in to his office anyway after a day - no ultrasound, a doppler on my belly for 20 seconds and I was out the door. 2 days later I delivered a dead baby girl - my precious daughter. I became an RN in part to try to figure out what happened - I got copies of all my medical records as well as my baby's autopsy which by the way he advised against. She was indeed not well and should have been monitored carefully. I have worked in labor and delivery now for 20+ years. He violated standards of care that have been in place long before I delivered and remain in place today. A medical professional would NEVER tell a pregnant woman to ignore decreased or no fetal movement for 2 days. He also falsified my records when I consulted with an attorney then called me to ask why I was suing him?? I now feel vindicated that he at least can't hurt any other pregnant women or unborn babies every again. He is the most dangerous type of MD - arrogant and confident of skills that he doesn't possess. BTW, he also tried to "help" me tuck in my shirt after visits with him which I refused - creeped me out. Why oh why did I ever consent to his being my MD??? A word of wisdom to women of childbearing age - do NOT go to an MD with a solo practice as a general rule. They often have more work than they can safely handle and there may be a reason why they are solo - other MD's may refuse to work with them, but YOU as the patient will never know or be informed of this lest the professionals you work with be sued by docs like him for slander - we cannot reveal these things. I can now because this happened to me as a patient and I know about MD politics - codes of silence abound. Check out ANY MD thoroughly before you consent to their care.

My child, born in 1988 was literally saved by a nurse in a Utah Hospital. I wish I could remember her name, all I remember is that she was from a Latin American country, and took the morning shift on Sunday, January 31, 1988. I had been in the same bed since Friday. My doctor. James Britton had come Friday night to break my water bag.
Then, he never returned.
During the 36 hours between that Friday and Sunday, I had only been assisted by nurses.
Dr. Britton was either not available or too busy to return and check on us. When the contractions became constant and closer, the nurses asked me to start "pushing", which I did for more than 4 hours. When Sunday morning came I was not only exhausted but also screaming for someone to help. It was our first child and my husband and I did not know what to expect. When a new shift of nurses came, I was assigned to a nurse from...Uruguay?
Her first rhetorical question was:
"You have been here for ALL this time?". Then she proceeded to make a phone call.
I could hear her voice: "If you do not show up and help this lady right now, I will personally sue you!"
Dr. Britton came shortly after her call and the nurses immediately started preparing me for an emergency C-Section. Our baby hardly made it. Due to so much pushing (4+ hours), she was born with an extreme case of "cone head".
She had been stuck in the same place for hours, unable to drop an inch. A C-Section was needed.
Our pediatrician. Dr. Hacking, later told us:
"A hundred years ago, either the Mom or the child, or both would have died in situations like this without a C-Section".
After making the incision and delivering the baby to the nurses, Dr. Britton had to return to his "Bishopric duties", and left the closing of the incision, the cleaning up, and the regular checking up of his patient to someone else. He quickly mentioned that he couldn't stay any longer due to his "Sunday Bishopric meetings".

Today my "baby" turns 26, and it is healing to finally let all this out. Maybe those of us with similar accounts with Dr. James Britton should talk about our children and their own experiences. Has anyone of them been affected by being born into this world in such stressful circumstances? Maybe.
