Kimkins Dr. Mark Not A Primary Care Physician

"Dr." Mark at Kimkins, also known as Mark Brinson refers to himself as a Primary Care Physician. The licensure department for the Florida Department of Health responded to an inquiry of Mark Brinson's use of the term "Primary Care Physician" as follows below:

Please be advised that the phrase "Primary Care Physician" is not located in the Florida Laws and Rules that govern Acupuncture scope of practice. However, the below language does outline the language "primary health care provider".
457.102 Definitions.--As used in this chapter:

(2) "Acupuncturist" means any person licensed as provided in this chapter to practice acupuncture as a primary health care provider.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
We strongly urge all Kimkins members to carefully research any "medical advice" given by "Dr." Mark for two reasons.

First, questions surrounding his claims of licensing have shown that he has used exaggerated claims, both within Kimkins and on his own websites, of his license status and title.

Second, please do not ever take medical advice from a person who admittedly eschews medical books and does not know the difference between an organ and a gland. YOUR health could be at risk, this is not a game of Russian Roulette (no pun intended).

Whatever advice he gives is worth what you paid. You didn't? Then it's worthless. Please don't diagnose yourself and follow advice from someone who doesn't know you and can't do proper research.
