Another Horrible Experience At Simplicity Medspa with Deb Tri

Another Horrible Experience At Simplicity Medspa with Deb Tri
Update by user Aug 20, 2019

It was not resolved, but I assume the owner of this “spa” will reap what she’s sowed in life - time to move on.

Original review posted by user Jan 30, 2019
PLEASE SEE DEB TRI'S RESPONSE TO MY REVIEW BELOW - After looking at the other reviews which I did NOT do before coming here my experience was the same as other's that gave this place a bad rating. The owner will not take accountability when she makes a mistake. She is argumentative and rude. She seems to only care about money and not the health, or welfare of her patients. I received no bill or documentation at the time of service as to what was injected in my face. I tried to reach the owner via her "contact" info on her website after calling her and not getting a response. I tried for 4 days to reach her as my face swelled, got redder and became asymmetrical. When confronted with the problems the owner of this spa refused to issue a refund, and after promising to help resolve the issues only sent me a copy of my invoice (which should have been provided at the time of service). I've never been treated with such a lack of care by a medical professional. I cannot recommend this "Medi Spa" to anyone unless you want your face to look like mine - swollen, red and asymmetrical - this was a disaster. DEB TRI'S RESPONSE TO MY REVIEW WITH A SHORT COMMENT FROM ME - You can find multiple reviews about Deb Tri and Simplicity Medspa on Google, Yelp, Birdseye and Dirty Scam. In Deb's response to all bad reviews she either denies any damage, is not accountable and blames the patient, or she denies knowing the patient (odd as there seem to be quite a number of patients that gave her a bad review that she doesn't know). Since Deb Tri loves to place the blame on the patient I will copy and include the parts of her email where she demands that I remove my reviews to receive any of the money I spent for this debacle. The quotes below are part of the email that Deb Tri sent to me today demanding I recant honest reviews in exchange for money. I'm appalled and distressed that a medical practitioner would go this far to avoid responsibility for a medical service which caused harm to a patient. This woman needs to think about her moral and ethical beliefs, in my opinion. "I have to tell you that I really just want to be done with this nightmare as well. I am willing to compromise and send you a refund for my professional services. But not without you signing a written release that you will agree to remove your reviews posted on various social media sites, and agree to refrain from ever posting any defaming remarks on such internet social media sites about me, or Simplicity Medspa in the future."... "Please let me know if you would like to resolve this as I mentioned above and I will take the necessary steps to have the release sent to you to have you sign it and also have a witness sign it. No refund payment will be made until you remove your reviews. Once we have a signed release agreement, and you have removed reviews from all the various sites, then I will send you a check for $2500.00 dollars and we both can be done with this very unfortunate and horrific experience. " "I hope that I hear a response from you by 5 pm tomorrow, Wednesday, January 30, 2019. Debra " To other patients considering going to this place of business I suggest you do your due diligence and research her multiple negative reviews on the internet. I have never "defamed" this ARNP as that would be a lie, or false statement. I would not have put my face, or name, on all my reviews exposing myself at my most vulnerable if any of this were not true - just to answer Deb's accusation against me, the patient, in this case.

You need to squeeze that big blackhead out of your face that's close to your ear.

Actually anonymous that's an enlarge pore caused from when I had chicken pox, but gee that was a really mature and pertinent comment - thanks for you concern. Karma is something you might want to consider in life.

Excuse my typos, but given the base comment you made I didn't think grammar would be a concern for you - so to correct "enlarged" pore, and "your" concern.

Simplicity Medspa at Square One Building SCAM

Simplicity Medspa at Square One Building SCAM
RUN AWAY from Debra Tri, ARNP! This was the most HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE IN MY LIFE! Debra Tri LACKS skill and is dishonest. I was left with hard BUMPS and LUMPS from Debra Tri's injections. I had constant burning and discharge from her injections. Debra Tri doesn't know what the *** she is doing. I went initially because it was CHEAP and I didn't want to wait but honestly if you have to wait a year to see an MD then it's better than going to this awful woman. This woman couldn't inject a target with a red dot even if she tried. Debra Tri then tried to laser the areas she had injected saying it would help the redness going away. Instantly I felt pain. Later that night I went to the ER because she had no on-call service only a voicemail. I saw an MD there who said it was stupid for her to have used a laser on a recently treated area. He gave me a referral for a board certified Dermatologist/Plastic Surgeon. Debra Tri injured me and gave me unflattering injections that were lumpy and bumpy, don't take the chance that your body might reject a foreign substance. I want warn other women of the devastating effects of UNSKILLED injectors like Debra Tri who uses fillers and chemicals that dreadfully scarred me and I feel deformed now. Debra Tri injected me with way too much Juvederm and Botox in my frown lines and marionette lines. Debra Tri's back was turned and she also left the room before she returned to inject me. Any provider who LEAVES a room before injecting you be CAREFUL. Debra Tri also poked me about three times and kept muttering under her breath before injecting. I immediately inflamed with embarrassing bumps and welted overdone laugh lines, it looked horrible. Because I don't know what if she tampered with anything it is hard to know what this woman injected me with or what she decided to dilute or mix with. Debra Tri REFUSED TO identify I had an injury despite the frequency of my visits. Debra Tri DENIED ever having any responsibility and she lied to my face. Debra Tri BLAMED everything and everyone, including ME, the patient for her fault in injecting me irresponsibly. Debra Tri is grossly NEGLIGENT and IRRESPONSIBLE. Because of Debra Tri I look freakish with hollow eyes, my eye bags fold when I smile and bumpy and uneven where I was injected. I have had Botox and other procedures before so I know what to expect but what I got from Debra Tri was on major insecurity to the next. Debra Tri has NO eye for aesthetics, and performs UNNECESSARY procedures that patients do NOT want or need. Save yourself the money, time, and stress, and go to a BOARD CERTIFIED MD who specializes in Plastic Surgery or Dermatology. Debra Tri reaction to me was condescending, defensive, mean and so nasty when she didn't like what she heard. Debra Tri even said to me, "I'll just say I never saw you if you feel like you're going to talk about my services". Debra Tri kept insisting I looked better and what I had was exactly what "magazines" and "stars" have so I should be happy with the job she did. Debra Tri has a HUGE EGO and cannot take responsibility for doing something wrong. Debra Tri brags about knowing MD's on TV. Debra Tri does not know these doctors. Debra Tri goes to paid conferences and takes pictures CLAIMING to know them. Nothing qualifies Debra Tri as an "expert" except in her own head, her FAKE reviews which she pays for (Demandforce is a FAKE review site where she has her friends and family members post reviews, not real customers). For those of you not familiar with WA State, even dentists can inject Botox if they attend a paid conference. Aesthetic medicine is no different, unfortunately WA State have little laws that require providers to have specialized training. It is difficult to be liable for malpractice in Washington State. Debra Tri has relied on that being able to run from clinic to clinic. Many offices consider injections not work doctor time and have a nurse doing the treatment. Aesthetic medicine should have the attention of a cosmetic surgeon, dermatologist who knows what they are doing. Debra Tri like to boast how long she's been a nurse. Debra Tri has had numerous problems with patients and colleagues leaving her to run a practice by herself. Even nursing students made complaints, "(Debra Tri) not a nice person, students know who she is before they have her as a teacher and have only heard negative statements about her". - Everett Community College Nursing Student. Debra Tri's last job was instructed staff to call 911 if Debra Tri was on premise. Debra Tri has run from Ambrosia MedSpa, to Radiant MedSpa, to now "Simplicity Medspa" and changing locations to prey on new victims. Debra Tri is a FAMILY PRACTICE ARNP, not an MD or PA-C who is a board certified Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist. Debra Tri would NOT be able to work as a Dermatologist or open a clinic of her own at an actual hospital or ACC's. Debra Tri does not have the admission privileges, cannot do surgery herself, other MD's do NOT consult with her, and she lacks experience in residency and surgery for Plastic Surgery or Dermatology. Debra Tri doesn't seem to REALIZE family practice does NOT equal hours of residency and medical school in Plastic Surgery or Dermatology. Debra Tri is the most unethical and unskilled injector out there. Debra Tri is dangerous and should be stopped before she destroys another persons life. Debra Tri cares about money, not her patients. Debra Tri takes ZERO ownership. Debra Tri fails on all scores, she's arrogant, inexperienced, and a poor explainer (educator) to basic questions. Debra Tri is in for a QUICK CASH GRAB. Debra Tri will present herself as an "expert" to skin, hair, and other issues. Debra Tri does not have specific credentials and training in many of the areas she is promoting. Do not waste your hard earned money with someone who does not respect you and will BLAME you and LIE about injuries like Debra Tri!

Simplicity MedSpa Botched

In my opinion, Debra Tri at Simplicity MedSpa injured me and took no responsibility for her actions. I was overcharged for the procedure she did, I found this out later after going to a reputable MD doctor. I was told that what Debra Tri did to me was ethically irresponsible and shame on her for putting me at risk for a procedure she had no control over. Her assistant Tracy Riggs - Glesener was a debtor in Washington State and had a Warrant For Unpaid Taxes – Employment Security 536848**** (Satisfaction Of Warrant Id 95047****) on 09/24/03. Her assistant Tracy Riggs - Glesener called me constantly on my phone asking me if I wanted to come in for “specials” or deals they had going, the calls were always when I was at work or inconvenient times. They were so seemingly desperate for my business or any and that should have been my red flag. Debra Tri had no proof that the procedure she did to me actually works! There is no doctor at Simplicity MedSpa and the nearest hospital is not close at all. I want everyone to know how scary this place is and I never realized how much risk I put myself in by going here. I would beg anyone to see a medical DOCTOR who is at a hospital or affiliation and not a small business like this. There is no accountability she will take and I don’t want anyone to end up hurt like me. I was scammed not only financially but as a patient and my patient care as I learned more from an MD and the damage she caused me for life.

Debra L Tri ARNP

I came in to see Debra Tri at her Medspa after watching her perform this procedure called the Vampire lift. I was very impressed scheduled an appointment. I asked questions about it and felt comfortable with her. After having it done I see that I wasted my $2500 on this procedure. Deb gave me some... free little samples of some expired products to lighten my brown spots. After going back for my pictures to compare I did not see any change. I felt that although she claims she saw something I didnt say a thing not even a minor or suttle change. I felt everytime she showed me my before and after pictures she wanted me to agree with her and say yes I see something. I talked with a respectable Plastic Surgeon who is board certified about this and he stated any respectable Dr would refund you or try and work something out with you to accomodate you. I stated she's not a doctor she's a ARNP. I did express my feelings to Deb and she stated that if she gets some samples of a product or whatever to see if it would make a difference to my brownspots but that never happened.I feel that was just talk to comfort me but she never followed up with that. I feel that all she wanted was my money and me leaving and looking like a fool. I talk to another Plastic Surgeon in Bellevue and he stated that it's a rip off to take your money. Although she was ncie to me I cannot help but feel its a deceptive ploy to get ones money and try and make you believe you see a difference or change. I went to her hoping she could assist me and believed this would help my browns spots but i feel it was just a lie. I just want my money back. Its bugged me all this time until another Dr suggested for me to file a complaint.

SIMPLICITY MED SPA DEBRA TRI THE BUTCHER

Simplicity Medspa - SIMPLICITY MED SPA DEBRA TRI THE BUTCHER
I initially went to Deb Tri (the owner) for Botox and filler and had no problems. But while there I learned about a treatment called Fractora that could help eliminate lines around the mouth area. I decided to try it after talking with Deb. The cost was $600. To make a long story short, THE TREATMENT PERMANENTLY SCARED MY FACE! Luckily I only had the area around my mouth done. I have many scars - some are recessed (like acne scars, but larger, and there are spots where there is loss of pigment (hypopigmentation) and darker spots (hyperpigmentation). Deb never said "I'm sorry", she didn't offer to refund my money. She acted like she didn't care. Needless to say, I no longer go to Simplicity Medspa. I talked to a lawyer, but it's difficult, if not impossible, to get medical professionals to testify against each other and you have to prove negligence. Her assistant Tracy Riggs Glessner is shady and watch your credit card for charges!!!! I recommend The Larrabee Center on First Hill in Seattle. I have had about 6 Dermapin treatments to help reduce the scaring ($100 each). They are wonderful! DO NOT GO TO SIMPLICITY MEDSPA!
