Had a tummy tuck and backplasty. I should have gone elsewhere. I do not believe his best work was performed on me. He may have had a bad day but that's a bad day I have to live with. I was told things would be don't that were not done. Happy to have the excess skin removed. I look great with a shirt on. The scars are healing great. His staff is helpful. Overall though I'm not happy with it.
I can't say enough about Dr. Kilgore and his staff. I had a breast lift w/ augmentation and my experience has been great. Dr and staff have no problem taking time to explain everything (some things twice), they are caring and considerate of my feelings and fears and thorough in everything. I've read on here some pretty negative things about the staff and I have to say I disagree. Denise is very straightforward and on point, she's not soft and friendly but she KNOWS what she is talking about and is very serious about getting her point across. Which really? I WANT serious and thorough over soft and friendly when it comes to something as serious as surgery. Dr Kilgore has a great manner in office and bedside, Denise seems like she is on a mission at all times. I think she's great. She was also very sweet to me preop when I was very nervous. My surgery was perfect, my breast are far beyond what I dreamed of and the care I have received has been stellar. I go for my 2 wk appt tomorrow!
Dr. Kilgore is GREAT. Denise is his nurse as well as OR assistant to Dr. Kilgore. She can be very, very snippy and even scarastic. I found she and the office clerk, Kristin, to lack follow-through in pre-op procedures. It appears Denise has been with Dr. Kilgore for over 17 years and maybe its time for her to move on. She clearly gets annoyed when questioned and clearly has forgotten each patient should be treatly as an individual although Denise may quite have well been asked the same question before. I rate Dr. Kilgore a 10 and Denise's behavior a 2. Kristen is somewhat of an air-head. Forgets to return calls - makes no apology. Love Dr. Kilgore but its time to make staff adjustments.
Dr Kilgore is very knowledgable and I found his staff to be professional and courteous. Pre and post op is very important to follow the directions for best results and they do not want their hard work to go to waste if you listen to them you will be as happy as I am - I went from a negative A to D cup breast augmentation I look natural and I am extremely happy at age 45 with my renewed look. I would highly recommend Dr. Kilgore to anyone his professionalism, precision, and genuine personality make your experience a true pleasure. Just completed my six weeks :)
The staff is detrimental to his practice, especially Denise who at times thinks she is a doctor! Ann seems to not know what she is doing at times and please feed her so that her brain and mouth can connect! Dr. Kilgore did not order a mammogram on me before my breast augmentation and my doctor questioned that. What physician would not order a mammogram before surgery on a 37 yr old female??? Now I have spots on my mammogram but since there is no prior, I have to go through biopsies. Denise told me not to worry about lumps, there were part of healing, good thing I went with my instinct and went to see a real doctor!! Shame on Dr. Kilgore for allowing all this!!
Dr Kilgore is great! He gives honest opinions and recommendations on results. My breast augmentation is 10 years old and my female MD could'nt tell until I said something. I've since had facelift, under eye, browlift and tummy done. All with outstanding results. Dr has Great bedside manor and Diana is wonderful. Denise is a gem as well. Denise is very caring and professional. She can be strict but it's out of concern for your health and following post op instructions. Thanks for taking such good care of me.
Doctor James Kilgore did my breast reduction and a small tummy tuck on my lower abdomin sewing together the lower stomach muscles parted by child birth and shaving off excess skin - my results and recovery were wonderful -also, 5 years later he performed an eye lid lift and a forehead lift - again Great results - Dr Kilgore and his nurse Diana were wonderful and comforting and helped put my husband at ease as well!
What a wonderful doctor! He does beautiful work and has a great bedside manor. I had him referred to me by another doctor, but checked out three other plastic surgeons as well. I had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Kilgore, and couldn't be happier! He's very good at keeping you comfortable post surgery, and just does impeccable work. I've had both mammograms and breast ultrasounds done since the augmentation, and even the tech's were surprised at how well the implants moved around and what a great, natural looking job he did. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this doctor to anyone. You'd be foolish to not check him out if contemplating plastic surgery!
