  • left-quotes I struggled for over 20 years to lose weight. Diet after diet, no matter what, I would lose and gain back double. I was at my peak, blood pressure was up, cholesterol level was up, fatigue, shortness of breath, I started seeing a cardiologist due to high stress level and finally I decided to google what can I do. Dr. Shillingford’s name was highly recommended in the gastric sleeve community. I did it and look- the day of my surgery I was 213 lbs, today 135lbs! right-quotes

  • left-quotesChoosing to have weight loss surgery was a huge decision for me (and my family). For 6 months, I researched surgeons and spoke with their patients and set up interviews with the surgeons. I met with 4 surgeons in South Florida (Broward and Palm Beach) – I felt most comfortable with Dr. Shillingford and just as important to me, with his staff. It may sound a bit hokey, but his staff seemed like the only group that seemed happy to help and happy in general. The patient reviews were terrific and my meeting went very well with Dr Shillingford. I scheduled the surgery shortly thereafter.

    I chose to have the Gastric Sleeve, as it was a permanent choice and I did not want to reverse this. I wanted to go drastic. Surgery prep before was wonderful at Northwest Medical Center and the staff could not have been nicer. Follow up with Dr. Shillingford and the monthly sessions of the Nutrition Support group are a big help as well. Dr. Shillingford has a great bed-side manner and is honest with answering any questions. His staff has been completely available and I highly recommend him for Gastric Sleeve surgery. My experience has been great so far… down 80 lbs thus far and no real complaints. right-quotes

My energy level has improved. I am still 50 pounds from my goal weight, but I am confident that with the tool of the gastric sleeve, I will reach my goal and for once will maintain the weight loss.

  • left-quotes The office staff was great and very informative. Doctor Shillingford was very patient and understanding in the pre-op process. The surgery went as well as could be expected and the doctor was very diligent in ensuring I had everything I needed even over a holiday weekend. Discharge went smoothly and I was out and home recovering very quickly. Doctor Shillingford and his staff are great and if I had to do it all over again I would choose them. right-quotes
