      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Brinton's Care Philosophy

      My practice is mainly limited to referral lipidology. This means that I see only patients with severe disorders of cholesterol or triglycerides, but I treat diabetes, obesity and other related problems in these patients with dyslipidemia. Generally, patients are referred to me by other doctors for severe or difficult problems with cholesterol and other lipid disorders. Patients who see me are expected to keep their primary-care doctors and other specialists. I do not do routine primary care
