Brett D. Brimhall, MD is a board certified, award-winning physician and eye surgeon. His unique and extensive training and skills have enabled him to provide the highest quality in eye surgery and care. In 1994 Dr. Brimhall graduated from Brigham Young University, majoring in Chinese and biology, and minoring in chemistry. In 1995 the U.S. Air Force provided full funding for his medical school training at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, where he graduated at the top of his class.
After finishing general medical training, he elected to practice general medical care as a flight surgeon for two years, while regularly flying in F-16 fighter jets. In 2002 he was accepted into one of the top eye surgery programs of the nation, Wilford Hall Medical Center. While in the program he excelled and was awarded several prestigious awards for his surgical abilities and research. In 2004 he was named chief resident, and graduated with the highest credentials in 2005.
Dr. Brimhall earned the high honor of personally receiving the first place award for the ACES Bloomberg Cataract Competition – a nation-wide surgery competition demonstrating his surgical dexterity, skill, and safety. Since being awarded that honor he has performed thousands of surgeries. He has been regularly asked to perform surgeries for many of the Air Force VIPs and generals, including a previous Surgeon General of the United States.
The culmination of Dr. Brimhall’s knowledge and expertise were required when he deployed to Iraq as an eye trauma surgeon. There he was exposed to complex problems that very few eye surgeons in the world have been exposed to. He performed hundreds of the most delicate and complicated eye surgeries and procedures. While there he helped many patients with serious injuries, including our U.S. troops, Iraqi civilians, and dignitaries.
Not only does Dr. Brimhall have top-notch surgical training, but he is kind and loves working with patients. His patients are all treated with the highest quality of care and customer service. His goal is to have a different kind of practice where complete integrity is the standard and patients are always put first.
