Kurt Vincke – Aug 20, 2021
My experience with Dr. Eller was great. He was able to make a diagnosis that several other doctors had failed to recognize over a course of years. He made me feel comfortable leading up to the surgery and the surgery went off without a hitch. He took the time to personally call and check-in the evening following my procedure, and any time I had questions during the recovery he & his team were super responsive.

I liked Dr. Eller personally, but he failed me with my foot surgery 2 times. He is very caring, but the results of my two surgeries still leaves me needing another. He apologized for not fixing my foot. But that doesn't change the fact I need another surgery. I'm sorry, but I can't recommend him.

Poor outcome from 2 surgeries – Mar 09, 2021
Dr. Eller performed both of my mid foot arthrodesis surgeries: right foot Oct & left Nov 2020. He was highly recommended to me by another orthopedic surgeon, while my primary doctor recommended a different specialist. Both seemed knowledgeable in their fields. I ultimately chose Dr. Erik Eller for several reasons. The most significant of these reasons include my respect for the orthopedic surgeon who recommended him to me and friends in the medical field who knew people who had worked with Dr. Eller in the surgery room. They said hands down they would have him do the surgery. Dr. Eller always answered my questions forthright & with intelligence. When I ran into issues post-surgery beyond his control, he listened to me with compassion and without judgment. He even held my hand when I asked to say a prayer before my surgery. He spent quite a bit more time on the surgery than scheduled to make sure he got it right. Feet are heeling well. I do not feel I could not have asked more from a dr

Dr. Eller took extremely good care of me and my fractured ankle. He was knowledgable, professional, patient, and answered all of my questions. The office is very well run. Everyone was very helpful and considerate of my well being. Dr. Eller spent a great deal of time explaining what I needed and the surgery was a great success.

Haifa Lousia – Feb 25, 2020
Go to Dr. Eller first! I went to Dr. Eller after having had a failed bunion surgery. He was very clear in describing my options and very honest about the possible outcomes. My first surgery (by another doctor) resulted in a more severe bunion, arthritis in my toe, a loss of cartilage, and my metatarsal overlapping my phalanges. In surgery, Dr. Eller discovered that the metatarsal had been rotated upward and outward, making realignment difficult. In spite of this difficulty he was able to realign the toe so that I, at least, have a normal looking foot that fits in normal shoes. My only regret is that I didn't go to Dr. Eller first.

Pretty op, surgery and post op care was exceptional. Ankle fusion and big toe fusion done at same time. Excellent results, limited pain and post op x-rays show proper alignment and fusion starting. Followed Dr. Eller's advise and it paid off.

Greg Morris – Sep 20, 2019
Sprained my ankle (worse than I thought and didn't see a dr). After 8 weeks, still painful to walk with pain keeping me up at night. I was getting really frustrated. Got an appt in 2 days. Process for evaluation of my ankle (including xrays) was seamless. No wasted time as Dr. Eller had the xray results within minutes. He was very thorough, explaining everything on the xray and provided me with a plan to get back to full strength. I was given an injection and the very next day I woke up and could walk on my foot with no pain, more mobility and no more limping. I was thrilled! I'm sure Dr. Eller has seen thousands of sprained ankles. However, he didn't rush me and listened to my concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Eller. He's very kind and attentive and his staff was amazing! Thank you so much!

I saw Dr. Eller for the first time today. He was referred by my orthopedic surgeon. I found Dr. Eller to be very knowledgeable, and very easily talked abut causes and effects of my foot issue. Treatments were discussed and options were given. Ifet very comfortable with his approach. I would definitely refer him to another patient.

I was referred to Dr. Eller by my Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Jason Davis. I had been experiencing severe pain in my right foot and around my right ankle. I found Dr. Eller to be extremely professional, very personable and thorough in his assessment of my condition. I am very pleased and will continue to see Dr. Eller re: future orthopedic (foot-related) needs. I will refer him to friends seeking an orthopedic professional who specializes in the feet.
