I lost 13 pounds in the first 6 weeks! That is with both a road trip and a plane flight up to visit family. I haven’t taken either of the diabetes medications I’d been on for a year since the morning of surgery. I’m able to see some of my habits around eating emotionally now that I know I’m not hungry.
I’ve got a ways to go with exercise and making healthy choices, but Dr. Shillingford helped make this process so much easier. I now have faith I will get to my goal and have many more years to spend with my family.
All I have to say in regards to Dr. Shillingford is THANK YOU! He is simply the BEST and above the rest! I was going into this lifestyle change a bit nervous, but with him…. All was well! For the Gastric Sleeve from the insurance procedure, to paperwork, to the counseling, and those last minute phone calls because I was so nervous – they were so patient. Nancy is the most sweetest, compassionate, person ever and I truly thank God for them both! If they ever need me to speak at any event… I am just a phone call away!
Thank you once again!

Dr. Shillingford cares and he always takes the time to answer questions. I felt at ease, I knew I was in good hands. I had never had surgery, and going into major surgery for the first time I was able to feel calm thanks to him. I have already lost 54 pounds in six months!

I have lost 90 pounds in six months, yeah! Dr. Shillingford’s staff was great. I felt so comfortable with Dr. Shillingford and he helped me from beginning to end. All my calls were answered and the staff was available every time I called, amazing!

Everybody was wonderful! My surgery went perfect and couldn’t have been an easier process. I have so far lost 40 pounds in 6 months and I am very happy! I am getting closer to my goal weight each and every day.

Dr Shillingford was very caring. He explained everything and made sure I understood. Nancy is wonderful! She was always nice and supportive. After the surgery she still calls to check on me and make sure I am well. I am happy to report I have lost over 70 pounds in one year with the gastric sleeve.
I was 308 lbs the day I had my weight loss surgery in September of 2011. Now I weigh 175 lbs. It was a long, hard journey that I could not accomplish on my own. Weight loss surgery is the tool I needed along with Dr. Shillingford’s guidance. I still have 40 lbs to loose and I am hoping to get to my goal by the end of this year!

I’m very happy with Dr. Shillingford and his office staff, especially the office manager, Nancy. Thank you for being persistent on getting insurance approval, for great patient education pre & post surgery, for continuous support during my weight-loss regimen, and the knowledgeable Dr.’s advice that kept me focused on my goal. I feel as if I’ve been reborn.

This surgery was the best decision I have made in my life so far. Dr. Shillingford and his staff are great with answering questions while ultimately leaving decisions about surgery to the patient. They were kind throughout the whole process. Between the pre-op diet and surgery I have lost almost 30 lbs in three weeks. I would recommend his office to anyone considering a lap band, gastric sleeve, or bypass.

This experience has been extraordinary! My sugar levels are low, my blood pressure is 120/80, my pulse 65, and I feel great. I lost 60+ lbs and I look great, too. I went from size 42 to 34 (I bought my first pair of shorts in a 32 but I will wait a little until it fits loose) Thanks Dr. Shillingford! You changed my life for the better! Second chances rarely happen but you make me feel like a new person!

Great experience with Dr. Shillingford. I never expected the process to be this painless. Very happy with my results so far.

It was hard to find a doctor who would be reasonable with my busy schedule as a student, but Dr. Shillingford made it easy. Not only that, but he accepts insurance. He definitely does not treat his profession like a business, he is a doctor’s doctor. The office was helpful and sincere every step of the way. Can’t say enough of what a good guy Dr. Shillingford is.

Dr. Shillingford and his staff are wonderful! The doctor impressed me with his confidence and professionalism. I was treated with respect, kindness and the best care possible. I would recommended anybody who needs bariatric surgery to come here.
