Has anyone used Dr. Shillingford? I’m considering getting the sleeve with him in Boca Raton.

A lot of people love him, I found him rude and abrupt- I consulted with him. He talked at me instead of listening. He automatically said sleeve without considering my history. I did see him earlier on and for a gallbladder surgery consultation as well and I would have needed comorbidities I was not quite the BMI at that point. I didn’t want to get that far. He not only said “oh you’re gallbladder isn’t inflamed” he just made a lot of assumptions about why I was seeking bariatric surgery.

long story short I left dissatisfied and knew it wasn’t going to happen with this doctor. It wasn’t until I went to see an endocrinologist to discuss my metabolic disorders, why medication wasn’t an option, my constant battle with my weight and continued dietary efforts and the fact my weight was still climbing and reaching that 40 BMI ... that she suggested Cleveland Clinic.

im glad she did. My doctor was honest, straightforward, recommend gastric bypass surgery based on my history. The process was much easier. Also when he removed my gallbladder during my RNY there was actually chronic inflammation ...
