Caring and Compassionate Surgeon!

Went to his office for initial weight loss surgery consultation. Answered all my questions, making me comfortable enough to have his office staff check with my insurance for coverage. I received a 1 page document with the requirements from the insurance company, before they would approve my gastric sleeve surgery. Completed requirements and 6 months later had my surgery. Post op 18 months and I've lost a total of 105 lbs. with 10 lbs. to go to my personal goal. Great follow-up by Dr. Shillingford. Awesome guidance along the way. Great overall experience. I only wish I'd done it sooner. Best results, even better than I imagined. Thank you Dr. Shillingford and staff, you are truly lifesavers!

Mr. Scott

September 12, 2017 is a day that I will never forget. Its the day that I decided to take control of my life. I was taking two blood pressure medications, one in the morning, and one at night. I went to my primary care physician and he told me that my blood sugar levels were elevated and that I would have to start taking diabetic pills. That's when I said enough is enough. I had to take control of my life. I came to visit Dr. Shillingford in June 2017. I found out about this great Doctor through a coworker, and let's just say the rest is history. Dr. Shillingford performed the vertical sleeve gastrectomy procedure on me September 12, 2017 and my life hasn't been the same since! My surgery weight was 299lb. My current weight is 223lb. Im no longer in any blood pressure medications. My lab work came back great! Im on NO MEDICATIONS AT ALL ANYMORE besides my B12 shot and Urosodol! I owe everything to Dr. Shillingford and his professional staff. Dr. Shillingford is patient, kind, and has a great bedside mannerism. I recommend him to everyone. Thank you Doc for saving my life!

Love this doctor!!!

I found dr. Shillingford through an online search after I had seen other doctors. I's so glad I found him!!! His office staff (Nancy and Elba) are very thorough, helpful and always get back to you as soon as they can. They answered all my questions and scheduling was a breeze! Dr. Shillingford is the nicest doctor I've ever met. He's been very patient and helpful. I had my surgery less than a month ago and already lost more than 30lbs! I wish I had done this sooner.
