  • left-quotes I started my journey in March 2017, I weighed in at my heaviest ever, 288.8lb. I decided I needed help, as working out and trying to eat right wasn’t helping. I sought the advice of Dr. Shillingford and he was very thorough on what to expect and he answered every question I had. I had the surgery October 31, 2017 and to date have lost 83 lbs. My #1 piece of advice is walk after surgery as much as possible and don’t be afraid to ask questions. No question is too small. He’s an amazing surgeon. He makes it so much easier. right-quotes

  • left-quotes The decision to go through with this surgery took a lot of thought. I was always the person that loved myself no matter what I looked like, but I had to do this surgery for my future. The day of surgery I was not nervous one bit and I think I probably had one of the best experiences after the surgery. I never got sick, I never felt pain, just soreness and I was back to work after 5 days. It has been 3 months now and I am down 75 lbs. Dr Shillingford is kind and so helpful when you need anything. This is the best decision I have ever made in my 36 yrs of life. right-quotes

  • 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
