quote-leftDr. Shillingford was very reachable after my gastric sleeve surgery, I felt so secure and safe. My operation went well, my follow up visits were very easy to book as Elba was very pleasant to deal with. Any information was always available if needed. Elba is a great asset to Dr. Shillingford. Dr. Shillingford was very professional and human, I did not feel like a number, but more like a part of a familyquote-end-img

quote-leftLast fall my wife and I embarked on a new journey in our lives. I have lost over 115 lbs and my wife has lost over 83 lbs and our lives have changed dramatically. I am so happy to have discovered Dr. Shillingford and his staff as they are some of the most professional and kind people we have met. They have helped us every step of this journey. We have discovered so many new things like lower blood pressure, not being pre diabetic anymore, energy, collarbones, shopping at regular stores, higher self esteem, doing things together that we had no energy for, exercising, saving a lot of money eating out and many other great things. No regrets! Best decision of our lives ☺quote-end-img

quote-leftI am so happy that I chose to get the gastric sleeve with Dr. Shillingford. He is an amazing surgeon! He has a wonderful bedside manner. The hospital was also great, along with his staff! The only thing I regret is not having done this sooner! I initially went to his office in March 2016 but chickened out. At that point in my life, I was at my heaviest, 255 lbs. In May, I started having chest pains and thought I was having a heart attack, not to mention that my blood pressure was through the roof. Thankfully, it was just stress and heartburn. I always had a lot of body aches, headaches, always felt tired, and not to mention, uncomfortable. Finally, after a lot of coaxing from my friend and coworker, I made one of the best choices in my life. Dr. Shillingford performed the gastric sleeve surgery on me at the end of December 2016. Including the pre-op diet, I’ve lost over 70 pounds and feel AMAZING! THANK YOU DR. SHILLINGFORD!!!quote-end-img

quote-leftI fully recommend Dr. Shillingford. My surgery was a success, no pain, no any bad situation. When I was at the hospital before the surgery a nurse asked me who was my doctor and when I told her Dr. Shillingford, she said ‘You are in great hands.’ And, yes, I’m very happy with everything. After a month I’ve already lost 30 pounds and 10 pounds in the pre-op diet. I’m so happy and blessed to have found Dr. Shillingford and his staff!quote-end-img

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.

quote-leftHaving the gastric sleeve procedure has changed my life. I have lost 70 pounds in 6 months and am now able to run without pain, play with my kids, and love going out. I have found it is important to stay hydrated, take small bites and eat slower. Mentally, it’s been challenging, however with the success I have achieved I would do it again. Dr. Shillingford and his staff were incredible throughout these last 6 months. Dr. Shillingford was patient and reassuring throughout the whole process. I definitely recommend the gastric sleeve to anyone who has tried various diets and exercise programs without continued success. This procedure has given me a second chance.quote-end-img

quote-leftI had my surgery a week ago and I have to say, it was a breeze. I came out of surgery with no pain except for some gas pain which was bearable. I never used my pain medication. This surgery really has been that easy for me, I feel my C-sections were worse by far! Dr. Shillingford is the best surgeon, and Nancy, his office manager is the best and so informative. I don’t regret my decision and would do it again. The key to recovery is to get active before and after surgery.quote-end-img

quote-leftDr. Shillingford is simply the best. I knew I was in good hands my very first consultation with him. He took his time making sure my questions were answered and that I felt confident with the procedure. His staff helped me through the entire process, even the confusing parts like understanding my insurance and pre and post-op care, and always did so with a smile. My insurance actually required the surgery take place at a “bariatric surgery center of excellence,” which is one of the reasons I was referred to Dr. Shillingford. The hospital, Northwest Medical Center was close to the office; the nursing and staff were excellent and made me feel safe and cared for. I did a lot of research before surgery and am so glad I chose Dr. Shillingford for my gastric sleeve. I had a follow-up appointment today and I’ve lost 40 lbs in 6 weeks, my energy has improved and I feel like I have my life back! I recommend .quote-end-img

Though on paper my health looked great I knew it was only a matter of time before I would end up with diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension etc. I realized that the best choice for me was to get help and that came in the form of Dr. Khalil Shillingford. I traveled 6 hours to Dr. Shillingford because I just knew he was going to be great. His office staff is AMAZING and has never been anything but helpful.quote-end-img
