Dr. 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.

I am absolutely in love with my sleeve : ) For many years I thought I would lose the weight on my own but unfortunately I just continually gained weight until I reached 377 LBS! 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.


I had my surgery 9 months ago and have already lost 110 LBS. I have a long way to go but I am excited to continue this journey to a new slimmer and healthier me. I like many others had concerns about undergoing weight loss surgery but after talking with Dr. Shillingford I had nothing but a sense of peace in my decision. My experience this past 9 months has been amazing and I am still surprised at how normal I feel. I have not had any negative side effects from the surgery and I am so grateful that I had Dr. Shillingford as my surgeon!


My Total Cholesterol has dropped from ad good 159 to 128, Tryglycerides 118 to 88, LDL 88 to 67, my blood pressure went from an average of 125/90 to 110-120/70-82 and that is just in 9 months. Take the time to meet with him and you will walk away informed and with a sense of peace in making your decision! Can’t wait to see what 2014 brings!

I had my surgery 26 days ago and I feel great. I have lost 24 lbs since then and I feel like I have a new lease on life. I have had no issues or problems at all with my surgery and its true you do lose that hunger. I’m on my way to my goal and excited for my new life. The doctor and staff were the most caring and professional people I have ever encountered. The hospital staff were great, they were there all the time checking on me and making me feel comfortable. All I can say is THANK YOU Dr. Shillingford for helping me start a new life and say goodbye to the fat guy.

I had my surgery at the end of August 2013. This was the best decision I have ever made for my life. I feel great! I’m getting healthier every day and I look better every month. My weight is coming off slowly which is good. My diet is healthy high protein, low carbs. I can’t thank Dr. Shillingford and his staff enough. I have my life back!

I lost 13 pounds in the first 6 weeks!” Dr. Shillingford is a consumate professional who is very generous with his time. I’ve been obese for twenty years, and had concerns about the bariatric surgery options.I spoke to his cheerful assistant, Nancy, and she encouraged me to come in for an information session where Dr. Shillingford explained the different surgery options to me and two other individuals.He was always very patient, answering all my questions in language I understood. It is so easy to feel judged and intimidated by doctors, especially when discussing weight, but Dr. Shillingford was positive and practical.I had been focusing on the lapband procedure, but after the information session I dediced the gastric sleeve surgery was a better option for me. I didn’t think I could follow the pre-op diet, but it didn’t turn out to be as hard I had feared. Surgery went smoothly, I was up walking (slowly) that same night. I was tender and slow for about a week, and then I felt great.

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.

I think Dr. Shillingford is an Excellent Physician. When my wife was struggling, Dr. Shillingford returned every call quickly and gave me so much support. I don’t know how we could have gotten through the process without him.

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!
