    "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!
    - Karen, West Palm Beach, FL

    - Debra A., Boca Raton, FL

    "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 have just had my first consultation with the doctor. He was very professional and not at all judging! I was fully expecting him to lecture me about my weight and he didn't. He took a lot of time to explain the different options More...
