I am so happy that I made the decision to make this life-change for me!! I did a lot of research before deciding on the gastric sleeve. When I found Dr. Shillingford I was immediately put at ease. It started with the lengthy conversation I had with Nancy. She listened, gave information and most of all, didn’t pressure me. I made the appointment with Dr. Shillingford and was immediately excited. He explained the process, surgery, transformation, and life changes that would occur and helped me realize what was right for me. I have just begun the journey…I am 6 months post-surgery and have met nothing but support and success do far. I know this is because of the preparation and support from Dr. Shillingford and his kind and friendly staff.

I came to meet Dr. Shillingford when my lapband, done by a previous surgeon’s office, had slipped. I was 34 weeks pregnant and Dr. Shillingford came to the rescue right after the c-section to remove the band. Four months later I found myself miserable with the weight I had gained. I revisited Dr. Shillingford’s office to review for another surgery and we agreed the sleeve was the best option. With the help of the very courteous office staff and coordination with the hospital the surgery was completed with no complications. I am now looking forward to a healthier, happier, me thanks to Dr. Shillingford.

Dr. Shillingford is not only an excellent surgeon, but he makes you feel very relaxed and self assured that you picked the right doctor for your surgery. He LISTENS, is ATTENTIVE, and REALLY CARES. My surgery was performed at West Boca outpatient. Not only was the staff tuned into my needs, they gave me bandages, tape, and had my prescription filled before going home. All I had to do was go home and rest.
