Oil in the anti freeze reservoir

My son bought a 2007 9.3 with 68,000 miles. ~3000 miles after purchase, we were checking fluids and there was oil in the anti freeze reservoir. Oil level on the dip stick was down a quart but clean on the dip stick. Took it to a mechanic said it was the oil cooler which we changed and had coolant system flushed. Short time later oil in the reservoir again. Now they think its the head gasket (but they are not sure) and new hoses $1800. Still no anti freeze in the oil.
Any ideas or similar experiences? Please help!!

If they diagnosed a head gasket without doing a compression check, run away from this shop as fast as you can.
