In this pandemic that we are in, I understand why the follow ups are via Zoom. However, you can always call the office for private consultation. Dr. Shillingford is an excellent surgeon. His staff is very knowledgeable, and can help you with minor problems. I had Bariatric surgery with him, and I have NO complaints. The PBG surgery center, also, was very helpful with recovery. If I had to grade Dr. Shillingford, I’d give him an A+!

One must be a part of a zoom session with him and the other patients. My original session I was never send the link, so I had to wait another week for the next session. It was so unorganized. One of the employees said something and the other employee corrected her and the first employee said, "oh, it changed" and the second employee said, "oh, I didn't know that". The first time I spoke to someone, she told me I had to have "x" for a BMI. Then I spoke to another person a couple weeks later and she said, "no, the BMI has to be 'x'." I told her I was told a lesser BMI and she said "oh, sorry, that was a new hire and she didn't know". THEN they up and changed the BMI requirement again, AFTER I sent my $250 deposit and made an appointment! Who does that mid-way through the pre op???? It takes an act of G-d for anyone to return a phone call or email and every time I finally spoke to someone or received an email, it was a different person. The whole office staff needs to be replaced.

Dr. Shillingford and his staff are truly amazing. Michelle, Nancy, and Elba in the office are wonderful and will answer any question you may have and if they do not know, they will find out so you do know. Dr. Shillingford does amazing work! He is straight forward and does not sugar coat which in my book equals accountability- What we all NEED going into this! I could not have picked a better team! My One Piece of advice: Do your research, follow Dr. Shillingford's advice and plan, and Understand this is a tool and you will come out just fine! "Happy Losing"

DR. SHILLINGFORD IS A ROCKSTAR! This past Monday (April 8, 2019), I finally had my Sleeve done with him, and I could not be happier. Best surgeon for this, and I did A LOT of research. Amazing bedside manner, so kind and patient, and his staff was great, too. Anyone considering this surgery, call Dr. Shillingford. You'll thank me later.

Earlier this week Dr. Shillingford performed a robotic hernia surgery on me. It has now bee three full days and no one has contacted me to see how I am doing. Perhaps this is no longer done but it seems like the right thing to do.

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 surgar levels were elevated and that I would have to start taking diabetic pills. That's when I said enough is enough. I had the gastric sleeve procedure done and let's just say the rest was history! Surgery weight 299lb Current weight 223lb

When I had the surgery, Dr. Shillingford and his staff had the care down to a science. They anticipated everything and my comfort was their utmost concern. I saw Dr. Shillingford every day I was in the hospital, and he spent time with me answering questions, not rushing in and out just to say he was there. I highly recommend Dr. Shillingford for any type of surgery you might need.

Dr. Shillingford took his time to consult with me and answer any and all questions. He is very patient and kind and was very supportive after the surgery. I have no regrets and I'm glad that of all the Surgeons I met Dr. Shillingford is the one who put me post at ease and made me feel safe. I would recommend him a 100 times over.

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 sleeve surgery less than a month ago and already lost more than 30lbs! I wish I had done this sooner.
